Denver Eats: Jelly

With Monday being my first day allowed out of the house after having El Influenza, I was excited to take the big guy up on an offer for lunch out.  There’s a new retro-styled Breakfast & Lunch joint in our neighborhood called Jelly that I’ve been waiting to try.

I really wish I had taken more pictures because the restaurant is just plain cute, from the menus to the mason jar water glasses.  But, I was distracted by the hunkster.  Typical.

We ordered a nice mix of breki and lunch.  Preston got the Salmon Scramble

And a rather large order of buckwheat pancakes

While I didn’t try the scramble, the ‘cakes were hearty and delicious with just a bit of syrup on top.

I myself ordered the veggie burger and sweet potato fries

While eating this burger smothered in roasted red peppers, zucchini, mixed greens and herbed mayo, I found myself thinking, “This thang can’t be healthy.”  The bun was just so buttery and decadent.   Then I thought, “Who cares?  It’s delicious!”  The Big Guy had half my burger and agreed upon the deliciousness.  The Sweet Potato fries were good, crispy and sprinkled with sea salt – just how they should be.

With price points between $6-$9 for most meals, and yummy bites all the way around, we agreed we’ll be visiting Jelly again.  I love having more choices just down the street!

Show them some love at

    The next trip, we’ll have to try the coffee. If their coffee is tasty, I’d give this place an A.
