They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Without breakfast to power through the morning, the body lacks the energy it needs to be effective during the most productive hours. Sometimes some fruit and a bowl of cereal from home will do the trick, and occasionally it is nice to go out and sit down with family or friends to start your day. Sometimes there are days on which something a little heartier is desired but time does not provide the opportunity to sit down to breakfast. Those are the days which prompt a search for local eateries with speedy take-out options...and COFFEE! I am always seeking to discover new experiences. I want to introduce you to my workplace favorite, Hi*Rise.
Located at Larimer and 22nd, Hi*Rise is just blocks away from Coors Field and a
quick walk to the 16th Street Mall and Union Station. Behind an understated red brick façade and floor-to-ceiling windows with glowing neon lights, visitors are enchanted by the aroma of fresh baked goods, brewing coffee and sizzling eggs and breakfast meats. Ascend the ramp to the counter and be welcomed by the friendly staff member, ready to feed the next hungry customer. Featuring bagels made from scratch daily, house-made egg patties, and a hot skillet ready to cook up the next sandwich, it is one of the freshest bakery/coffee shop breakfasts one will encounter. Before placing an order be sure and browse the "day-old" bagged bagels, breads and other baked offerings to take home with you. There are many menu items to choose from, as well as a Build-Your-Own-Bagel option. One of my absolute favorite items is the Steak and Egg sandwich.
Piled high with sliced beef, a fresh egg patty, American cheese, and Bloody Mary cream cheese (virgin, of course), the Steak & Egg is a Diner breakfast stacked sandwich style. Served up on a toasted Everything Bagel (or any other bagel on the menu), you will hang on to every bite until you are left licking the crumbs from it's wrapper. My favorite twist is subbing horseradish cream cheese for a hint of spice. If you are looking for something simple, try the savory Jersey Breakfast. Thin sliced Taylor Pork Roll layered on a plain bagel with egg, American cheese, and ketchup if you want it. Ketchup you ask? The sweet tomato balances the salty pork, and the melted cheese brings it all together for a flavor combination straight out of the Garden State.
If the downtown lifestyle sounds enjoyable, consider living it! With endless bars, dining options, and easy access to public transportation, this neighborhood has everything a city dweller needs within walking (or cycling) distance. Take a look at some highlights*:

"We cannot thank Jim & Julie and the team at Ion Real Estate enough!!! We were very impressed with Jim's knowledge of the business and his drive to find us our perfect home; from the lender-side and how to get the best deal to the realtor-side and everything in between. As first time home buyers we really appreciated Jim's direction in gathering everything we would need. In addition to Jim's wonderful guidance, Julie was exceptional to work with too. She was always willing to listen to our concerns and was very encouraging on our journey hunting down our first home. She is so dedicated that she found us "our" home during the holidays and we were under contract by New Year's, which was a great way to start off the new year. She found us our dream home, in a great location and we couldn't be happier. I always recommend Jim, Julie and Ion whenever someone I know says they are looking to buy or sell their home. Go with Ion, they make dreams come true.
