While visiting Denver, some friends of ours recommended Vital Root because my husband and I are both celiac and vegan. This place was perfect!! Both of our meals were tasty and satisfying, and honestly we wished we were staying in Denver long enough to try everything on the menu. We got there around 1:30 on a Saturday and there was a long line. It took about 10 minutes to get through that line, but it was worth it. I highly recommend Vital Root to anyone who likes food, not just gluten free and vegan. We will be back on our next visit.
The food is gluten free and very good but they offer beers that are not so be sure you are aware when ordering.
Vital Root is now completely GF [it wasn't when it first opened], and I've eaten here at least a dozen times without issue. The food overall is very, very good, although I do agree that some of the items are a little pricey compared with what you get. Standouts on the menu are definitely the pancakes - these are the BEST pancakes I've had in years, maybe even since pre-celiac days. The avocado toast sounds simple, but is filling and delicious, and the Root Down Benedict [brunch only] is very flavorful as well. I haven't had many of the desserts except the muffins, but they, along with the seed bread that they serve, are all made in-house.
