Tattered Cover Coffee Shop in LoDo
"You head to the Tattered Cover for books, and maybe even for espresso and pastries, but what about for hot, nutritious lunches? The cafe/coffee bar area at the Tattered Cover in LoDo is open for simple lunches that include salads, sandwiches, and a soup of the day. For $5.50, you can order a hulking half sandwich and an oversize cup of soup (flavors rotate daily), and then settle yourself into a chair for a quiet lunchtime getaway, surrounded by books and intellectuals. To ensure a seat, arrive by 11:30 a.m."
