Fresh Exchange, I have to be honest, is the one place in Union Station that I’m not really excited about. It’s an average sandwich shop. I get that they want a range of offerings in the station, it shouldn’t all be “high end”, that makes sense. And I get that they want non-chain places. But the other “basic” offerings – the burger place, the coffee shop, the ice cream parlor, all have something a little bit special and cool about them. To me this doesn’t, sorry :(. But if you want a quick sandwich in Union Station, you can get it here!
Many Denverites probably know Snooze, who have been serving great breakfasts in a fun environment in the Ballpark neighborhood since 2006. They’ve expanded to six locations in Colorado, and three outside, with Union Station being their latest one. You should plan on a wait, but they will text you when your table is ready, so check in as soon as you get there and plan on exploring the area while you wait.
Pigtrain Coffee serves great coffee from local company Novo, as well as delicious pastries from Babette’s bakery, based in the Source market nearby. They take advantage of the building’s liquor license to offer a few alcoholic coffee drinks too! They also have outdoor seating overlooking the fountains.
