Died and went to vegan heaven.Very diverse menu (completely vegan) including milkshakes(!), attractive surroundings with cool art and reasonable pricing. I will be back, and I'll be daydreaming about Watercourse a lot while I await my next trip to Denver!

This place has seriously delicious food and, of course, it's a dream for vegans. We ate some crazy yummy dinner and then returned for more delicious brunch. Highly recommend!

The food here is incredible. Who needs meat when it tastes this good without it? This is serious gourmet cooking. With that said, please get rid of that music. It seems designed to get people to eat fast or something, and it is way too...More
