A somewhat-upscale vegetarian restaurant located in the heart of downtown Denver, WaterCourse Foods has an expansive menu that is chock full of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. Food allergies are taken very seriously; foods with nuts are noted prominently. The menu selection is surprisingly creative for a vegetarian restaurant, which may be why WaterCourse is so popular. The restaurant makes several types of vegan “cheese” in-house, and offers a host of vegetarian protein options, including seitan, tempeh, Portobello mushrooms, and tofu. Prices are mid-range, with an entrée costing between $12-20. I tested the nachos and the sweet potato and black bean tacos, both of which were delicious and elegantly presented (well, as elegantly as nachos can be presented). There is also an in-house bakery and coffee shop if you’re craving a sweet treat for dessert. WaterCourse can get busy during the nights and weekends, and they do not take reservations, so make sure to plan accordingly.
