Snooze is THEE BEST breakfast diner I have ever been to. The wait staff is exceptional and attentive while the menu is varied and creative. We ordered a drool-worthy local favorite not found on the menu - cinnamon bun pancakes. While the prices are a bit high, the amazing food, retro-deco, and great staff make it all worth it. Nom Nom Yummy!
Snooze an AM Eatery-Denver – On a recent visit to Denver, we had the wonderful adventure of having breakfast at Snooze. We initially found the place to be bright, inviting and just pleasant! Hostess was personable and friendly as were all the staff we encountered. We were even given a free Pine-Apple Unside Down Pancake to sample for our party of 5, by the hostess! Our waitress was extremely helpful in assisting us with our tough decisions on what to order for breakfast. Their menu is extensive and there are so many options with choices and personalizing your order. They have loads and loads of "sweet" options that make you think you're having dessert for breakfast...but also numerous egg options, scrambles, benedicts, etc. Everyone will be able to find something to their liking. Between the 5 of us, we ordered some pancakes, breakfast tacos, sausage gravy. Everything was served as generous portions with wonderful, flavorful quality. We WILL return, we would highly recommend. We arrived close to their open at about 7:20 and did not encounter a wait or a rush. It was a wonderful meal, can't wait to return!
Overpriced – We dined at the Colorado location today. Waited 35 minutes for a table for 8 which was ok for such a big crowd. The waiter was a bit unfriendly and the feel of the restaurant was crowded. Also, there was only one bathroom stall- probably need more for such big crowds. Most importantly, we were so excited about the food after seeing the very creative menu. At best, the food was good and definately overpriced. For the amount of food we got the prices should have been lower. Not sure if I would go back.
Streets of Southglenn Snooze – A friend & I had been waiting to try this new restaurant at the Streets of Southglenn. On our second try which was a Wednesday at 10:30 am we had to wait 30 min. This seemed like a good sign. We were seated in a very crowded row of tables where we practically had to yell at one another to have a conversation. It felt uncomfortably close to the other tables we were next to. The music was much too loud also making for a less than relaxing time. The server was nice and accomodating when we asked about gluten-free menu items. The food was no better than other less expensive breakfast restaurants in the area. So I guess I am saying I was disappointed and probably won't make much effort to go back. Just didn't seem worth it to me. I think the reason for the wait at this point is because it is new and it's a much needed breakfast place in the area but when the new wears off and people have had the kind of experience we have had, there won't be much of a wait. Hopefully this restaurant will make it.
Insultingly Overpriced - Mediocre Service/Quality – This review is for the Southglen location which is not listed in Citysearch:
I wish this review would make a difference enough for it to be addressed by management but Snooze has people climbing over each other for a chance to eat at this overpriced restaurant with mediocre food and service, so this review as well as the other negative ones for their Larimer location will go unaddressed.
The presentation of Snooze is excellent and it is one of those places that you feel more sophisticated just for being there; but peel back the layers and you have an overpriced IHOP with a high brow menu.
To start off, approximately 8-10 oz of orange juice will cost you $3. They serve it in a tall, skinny hour-glass shaped glass to disguise the fact that you a getting a small juice at the price of a half gallon in a supermarket. I should have just asked for the check when I saw that; but their menu was so unique that I continued.
The pancakes were certainly inventive but $8.50 for 3 - 6" pancakes (one of them was more like 5") in the pancake flight (sample of 3 different pancakes) is well over-priced. The pancakes should be larger (at least 8") to justify the expense even with the unique offerings. The flavors were good but I have had far better pancakes at a German pancake specialty restaurant that were a little cheaper but significantly larger.
On my meal I had to send back my eggs for a simple request of breaking the yokes before cooking, and would have had to send them back again if I hadn't rejected the meal all together. I rejected it because in the process of attempting to fix the eggs they broke something else in the dish and I was too frustrated to continue.
To their credit they removed the dish from the check; but no manager stopped by to ask what the problem was.
In the end our check came to $27 for 4 small pancakes, a breakfast burrito, an orange juice and an iced tea (I had water). This was 2 times what the same meal would have cost at Le Peep. Snooze provided an inventive pancake offering, but Le Peep would have provided better service and quality.
4 Locations – they have 4 locations. the 2 listed and then one in Southglenn mall parking lot which is reviewed here and one in Ft Collins.
We waited for an hour to be seated. The service was excellent, the coffee was good even by starbucks standards and the food was outstanding. It was worth the wait. Plan on waiting 30-70 minutes. Will definitely be back. Southglenn is largest location.
Worth the wait – Had to wait thirty minutes to get in the door on a tuesday morning, but it was so worth it. The food is sinful. The staff was really friendly. The atmosphere was great. The specialty here is decadent pancakes, but I've been back now four times, and I've been wowed every time. Nothing on the menu is less than amazing. Go with some friends, wait the half hour or so with a cup of joe, and enjoy more than your average breakfast. Good eats.
Great Breakfast – Great drinks , corn beef hash, coffee, B Fast burritos, Gluten Free menu. The service is fantastic at this fun place. If there is a line very day of the week for the entire time a place is open, you know it is great. This is the case at this gem.
