A Tennyson Start to the Day

Rise and shine, mornings just got a little better. Get up and at 'em with this list of early-riser ideas for tackling the day on Tennyson Street. In this Denver neighborhood, the coffee brews a little stronger and the sun shines a little brighter. Check out our Rise and Shine Itinerary for tips on the perfect start to your day:

Cuppa Joe

Satisfy your caffeine addiction with an infamous Death Charge and pastry bite from Allegro or a warm cappuccino from local roasters, Novo Coffee at Downpours, Tennyson's coziest little coffee shop.

Body Moves

Looking to really jumpstart your day? Get your sweat on with sweet sun salutations at Vital Yoga, an energizing barre class at The Dailey Method, or a full-body conditioning class at Pearl Street Fitness. With schedules beginning at 6:30 AM, grabbing an early morning class on Tennyson couldn't be easier.

Breakfast Bites

Now that you've worked up a sweat, time to refuel. Get your belly's fill with some local breakfast nosh in the neighborhood. Some of our favorites include the steak and eggs at DJ’s Berkeley Cafe, fresh-baked buttermilk biscuits at Denver Biscuit Company (check out the Three Run Double), or the huevos rancheros at The Cozy Cottage. For in and out bites, check out Kyle's Kitchen (diner-style, counter service) or farm-fresh egg and bagel sandwiches to go at Il Porcellino's (now featuring Denver's own NYC style bagel makers, Rosenberg's).

Peaceful Start

Searching for a peaceful start to your morning? Look no further. Enjoy the crisp Mile High morning air with a lap or two around Berkeley Lake. Before you go, grab a freshly pressed juice from Pressed Juice Daily. Our go-to greenie is their Greens 4 - a power-packed green apple, kale, and lemon juice made up of delicious goodness.

Coffee and Canines

Pups looking to get out and about at daybreak can have their fill of fun at Berkeley's Dog Park, conveniently located adjacent to Berkeley Lake. This neighborhood favorite features ample room for you and your four-legged furry to toss around the ball and to meet with other pups around Tennyson.
