Linger joined the brunch bunch last year.
The warm weather heading our way brings with it the desire to stretch weekend breakfasts into blissful, hours-long respites in comfortable booths or on intimate patios. Denver's diverse population of brunch enthusiasts range from outdoor activists loading up for a big bike ride to all-day drinkers. But whether it's eggs Benedict or a big Bloody Mary that you crave, Denver has plenty of perfect spots to get your brunch on.

12) Beast + Bottle
719 East 17th Avenue

Beast + Bottle's farm-to-fork philosophy and dedication to whole-animal utilization has made this spot a Denver favorite over the past year. The thoughtful brunch menu includes such inspired dishes as lamb-neck red chile served with eggs and hominy, and sheep's-milk ricotta blintzes with fresh strawberries. All eggs are courtesy of B+B's "girls," a flock of Rhode Island Red hens that are housed at Colorado's Cottonwood Creek Farms. The drink menu is nothing to shake a stick at, either: Try one of the "beastly" Bloodys like the "Smoked Maria," a brunch-friendly take that uses mezcal instead of vodka. Or if you're game for an early beer, go for the house saison that City Star Brewing makes specially for Beast + Bottle.

11) Devil's Food
1024 South Gaylord Street

Equal parts charming coffee shop, pastry slinger and supper spot, Devil's Food serves up a mean brunch, too. Whether eating inside or out on the tiny, secluded back patio, diners can choose from such dishes as pan-roasted trout and eggs, an array of Benedicts, shrimp and grits, or piles of fluffy pancakes or Belgian waffles. As a bonus, Devil's Food brunch goes until 4 p.m. on the weekends. The can't miss dish? The crepes. And don't leave without some fresh baked goods.

10) Beatrice & Woodsley
38 South Broadway

The atmosphere at Beatrice & Woodsley alone is reason to visit -- but the rustic, seasonally inspired brunch offered within the aspen-packed, urban Colorado wilderness will make you never want to leave. Step inside and you'll feel like you're in a dreamy theater set; sit down and contemplate a menu that reads like a fantastical story, with creations like the summer squash-and-chili bread pudding, a smoky braised lamb-and-egg sandwich, and crawfish beignets with spicy red-pepper aioli. Beatrice & Woodsley also offers an Impressive, well-curated morning cocktail menu.
