Wide Awake at Snooze   Leave a comment

The name Snooze is ironically misleading because this is an exciting, ambitious, and,
apparently, very popular diner. Although there are others in Denver, Boulder and Fort
Collins, we tried the Larimer and Park location.

To be perfectly honest, breakfast is not my favorite meal. Snooze could change that. The
menu has several items that piqued my interest: Sweet Potato Buttermilk Pancakes, Breakfast
Tacos, Snooze Spuds Deluxe and much, much more. I opted for the Sweet Potato Pancakes which
may sway me from trying anything else. The cakes were surprisingly light and airy; the sweet
potato flavor was subtle, especially under the ultra-sweet caramel syrup, so it took a little
experimenting to find the right taste balance. Pecans and ginger butter were perfect final
touches. My son ordered Red Velvet Pancakes, with a hint of rich chocolate, complete with
cream cheese frosting.

All the egg dishes use Neiman Ranch Cage Free eggs. I am not a coffee drinker, but I know a
good cup when I smell it. Hash browns while creamy are perhaps not as crunchy as they should
be. Service is very friendly and efficient. Still, it’s clear pancakes are the stars of the menu.
Afterall, Snooze boasts: Peace, Love and Pancakes!

Be prepared to wait, we were told 15 minutes, which was pretty accurate; as we were leaving,
those waiting for tables were being told 30 to 45 minutes. Snooze, an a.m. eatery, is a fun
misnomer because it is wide awake on all levels.
