Top of the Morning

Start the day off right with Mangiamo Pronto’s granola.

|

If breakfast is your key to a productive day, consider the hearty treasure found at LoDo’s Mangiamo Pronto. The sunny Italian cafe bakes its granola each morning and tops each order with two scoops of organic Greek yogurt. Add to that a side serving of house-made spiced fruit compote that includes raisins, figs, and peaches. You’ll like it so much you’ll want the recipe. 1601 17th St., 303-297-1229, mangiamoprontodenver.com
