I am a breakfast person and was thrilled to hear that restaurateur Jim Gregory and his wife Ranelle recently opened another (first was in Arvada, 2018) Morning Story breakfast, brunch and lunch casual dining spot in Leetsdale Shopping Center off Holly. At the Grand Opening there were delightful samples of fare in addition to an extensive beverage bar, including traditional drinks, but so many more colorful variations on the themes for refreshing and interesting brunch cocktails. Open from 7 a.m – 2:30 p.m. daily, the large menu offers equally wonderful options for lunch. I could hardly get past the special insert of Summer Features that attracted me to the Romesco Avocado Benedict. How could one resist a piquant tomato sauce of red peppers, nuts, garlic and olive oil topped with avocado, filled with sautéed spinach and poached eggs then topped with Morning Story’s own hollandaise (flavorful and not overpowering) and fresh herbs! In a time when there is a shortage of avocados, Morning Story is quite generous with theirs. It’s served with dressed mixed greens and a perfectly toasted English muffin. All the menu descriptions are equally enticing – basics plus modern twists at great prices. If you have business or shopping in Cherry Creek – stop in before or after. Or, make it a destination. On a hot day, your thoughtful server will ask if you’d like a cup of ice water to go. The ambiance is updated, cool and calming with a comfortable upholstered seating area should one have to wait. Plans call for another location southeast, bordering Cherry Hills Village. Please make it soon!
