Head to Bump and Grind
(439 E. 17th Ave.
, 303-861-4841) for tasty breakfast fare, and to watch the slightly (but affectionally) freakish drag waitrons work the room (these are not glam female impersonators but rather gruff but very dishy and fun guy clad in just the barest pretense of drag wear). Weekend brunch (and especially the Sunday Petticoat Bruncheon) is the main event here, and the kitchen serves up quite tasty (and ginormous) portions of Mexican eggs Benedict, banana waffles, carrot cake muffins, delicious chocolate chip cookies, and the like. Arrive with a sense of humor and a hearty appetite, and you won't be disappointed. Breakfast and lunch are served on weekdays (except Monday, when it's closed), and the brunch is served on weekends till around 2ish.
