I'm a native in the area, and it shocks me that I never knew that this was there. His food quality is top-notch, and the service is great. If you are looking for a "fancy" restaurant, this isn't it. If you are looking for a...More

This was our second time to eat breakfast at Nick's and it didn't disappoint. Our son and daughter-in-law were with us this time (we're all from Texas) and we had so much fun here! Never mind the food, which is fresh, delicious and affordable -...More

Nick has the best breakfast around. Little slice of Americana. Nick was good for Elvis and is still cooking for the best. Multiple regulars and Nick will remember your name. His food is great

Nicks Cafe is unique. He has been in business 29 years. Serves good food at very fair prices. Lots of Elvis memorabilia cover walls. For anyone heading out of Denver to the mountains on Hiway 6, this is the place to stop.

Ok my first trip to Denver and the hotel said it was a must try. They only take cash. It's a very small place with a lot of character. With 9 tables I came in at lunch and all but one was taken. I had...More

Nick's offers homemade food at very reasonable prices. It is a cash-only restaurant so be prepared. You're surrounded by Elvis memorabilia as you eat; apparently Nick was a cook for Elvis. There is nothing fancy here... the coffee cups are paper, the water glasses are...More
