Green Travels: Denver "Snooze" Sustainable Eatery

On a recent family visit to Denver, I had a DELICIOUS sustainable restaurant experience I wanted to share!  Snooze on 2262 Larimer St was quite the brunch treat.

Being the greenie I am, I noticed the recycle & composting signs throughout the restaurant (the trashcan in the bathroom requested only paper towels & compostable products).  I suspected other green practices to follow suite and found their eco-friendly actions on their Snooze-licious website:

  • Energy and water efficiency and conservation – we actually buy carbon offsets, are completely neutral in our operations and purchase alternative energy for consumption
  • Recycle everything possible
  • Compost everything possible
  • Sustainable local food, organic ideally
  • Recycled, organic and/or chlorine-free paper products – check out our sugarcane by-product take-away containers and corn based straws!
  • Non-toxic cleaning and chemical products
  • Provide employee education and incentive to act accordingly
  • We’re beginning our foray into sustainable development and construction!

Snooze could easily have fit in Northern Liberties – so I definitely felt at home in a hipster habitat.  The servers could have been No’ Libs transplants and gave a free pancake if you named the artist currently playing their tunes (Luckily, I guessed Iron & Wine… and scored my table a free cranberry & deliciousness pancake!) Oh, and the Huevos Rancheros I ordered… absolutely phenom!  Need a morning pick-me-up? Mimosas were quite the icing on the cake.  Interested in traveling?
