(Editor note: if you go for lunch and you like salad, try to Bleu Salad! It’s yummy.)

If you’ve been in the metro area for any length of time, you have probably heard of Snooze. The retro vibe and fun menu has made it a popular brunch spot in Westminster (and Denver!).

Famille in Westminster opened in March 2021 and is located inside the Origin Hotel. Location is where the old Westminster Mall used to be (you may remember that mall).

Famille is a French restaurant and has an upscale feel to it, but the atmosphere is friendly and approachable.  The breaskfast menu includes Granola Parfait Bowls, Chocolat Framboise Pancakes, Salmon Avocado Toast and a breakfast burrito with farm fresh eggs and chorizo. There’s also a Colorado Green Chili Ranchero on the menu, so don’t let the French-inspired theme throw you off!

The brunch menu is available after 10am and includes Gruyere Pate Gratin and Roasted Vegetable Hash.  Grab a mimosa from the bar while you’re there.  When you’re finished eating, hop across the hotel lobby to Tattered Cover.

May not be as kid-friendly as other places on this list as the food is a bit more “fancy” in nature.

Brunch hours: Breakfast starts at 7am, Brunch menu available at 10am.
