Went there for brunch on a Saturday and ate at the bar as the place was packed. The food was delicious and big servings. We couldn't even manage a dessert. If only all veggie/vegan places were this good.

I visited WaterCourse twice in my most recent visit to Denver, Colorado. Both meals were delicious, nourishing and very satisfying. The full vegan menu is very extensive. The service was great both times and I found the prices reasonable as well.
