Winter, it seems, is coming early this year. Which is reason enough to head to Capital Tea on South Broadway for a cozy, leisurely lunch. Visit on a Friday or Saturday for fluffy quiche with a buttery, flaky crust. The entrée—ingredients of which change each week—is baked individually and comes with organic greens tossed with a bright, mustardy vinaigrette.

Pair lunch with one of the 60-plus loose-leaf teas or a C Tea Fizz, a tea soda made from black tea, Perrier, and flavored syrup (try blackberry).

Bonus: The space is reminiscent of a British tea room, complete with dainty—and delicious—pastries and baked goods. Save room.

1450 S. Broadway, 303-777-2255
