Back in my life in Denver, I had a standing Thursday meetings with two colleagues. These meetings were not only productive, they were fun. One of the things I miss in my new situation is that I’m no longer working with my awesome coworkers. I’ve been staying in touch with many of them but I haven’t seen anyone until one of them moved out here in May.
We decided to meet up for brunch at Zest Bistro to catch up on the last few months. It was like no time had passed. We were back in Denver at the coffee shop going over our notes from the week. The atmosphere of Zest was laid back and minimalistic, by the time we left it was packed but we were still able to hear each other clearly. It was much easier to get a table at 11am than at many of the other brunch places in Eastern Market.
My friend ordered an omelet that she really enjoyed. I went with the Challah French Toast that was topped with apple compote, powdered sugar, maple syrup. The French toast was good, but there wasn’t enough apple compote or powdered sugar. I had also expected the Challah to be cut a little thicker, but to be honest it tasted a lot like regular French toast. That aside, this was a great place to meet with friends and talk for hours. We weren’t rushed through brunch and the next thing we knew, a few hours had passed and our plates were clean.
