I decided to do a travel post by "visiting" my own home of Denver, Colorado. Denver is actually a very vegan friendly city! I don't live near downtown, so I haven't had a chance to check out of all these places yet. I think it's harder to find the time to go out and explore your own area sometimes because you have all your other usual commitments. I will definitely find time for each of these soon!
City O City
A casual but hip place that serves vegetarian and vegan foods. I highly recommend the City O burger or the Savory Waffle! Everything from their bakery is vegan too.
Udi's Supper Club
The Arvada location of Udi's Cafe has a once a month vegan supper club. It's a set 4 course menu that changes every month. I've been a few times and it's always fantastic!
My posts: here and here.
Sweet Action Ice Cream
A small but super popular ice cream place in the South Broadway neighborhood. They always offer at least 2 vegan ice cream flavors AND have vegan ice cream cookie sandwiches! Awesome.
NOOCH | Vegan Market
That's right - Denver has a vegan food truck! I can't believe I haven't been able to visit yet!
You can find the van through their website, and currently they at Nooch on Wednesdays and at Sweet Action on Friday nights.
Maybe the most well known vegetarian restaurant in Denver, Watercourse also has a full bakery and always seems to be busy. I hear that their Seitan Buffalo Wings are the best ever. Also, Vegan Milkshakes!
A fairly new upscale Denver restaurant that has been getting rave reviews. They offer several vegan options, including pad thai, masala dosa, tamales, and salted butterscotch pudding for dessert. I also hear the bar is covered in lite brites, so clearly I need to go here very soon.

Colorado vegans - I'd LOVE to hear more suggestions in the comments!
