Denver has caused quite the buzz in the plant-based community over the past few years. Although our beautiful city is no stranger to this way of eating, with so many people starting to transition to a plant-based diet we thought it would only be right to feature some of our amazing plant based restaurants around the city.
As one of Denver’s original vegan restaurants, Watercourse began in 1998 as a small vegetarian cafe. The name Watercourse comes from the Taoist philosophy of the “water course way” which in essence means to take the path of least harm. In 2007 they transitioned to a completely vegan menu and haven’t looked back since.
Their vegan comfort food does not disappoint when you want a meal that speaks to your soul. You can expect everything from a southern fried cauliflower steak to a big bowl of mac ‘n’ cheese. Their delicious salads and kombucha on tap will put a smile on your face while sitting on their sunny patio.
The friendly atmosphere pairs well with any adult beverage you want to order from their full service bar. If you haven’t yet visited Watercourse I encourage you to expeditiously make your way down to their restaurant for one of the best scratch food kitchen experiences you have ever had.
