Henry's Bar and Grill has been a staple of downtown Louisville for decades and its staying power is easy to understand; low prices, good, filling food, and friendly atmosphere are great draws to this little grill! Located right in the middle of the downtown area, Henry's is small and unassuming, but worth a visit during your day downtown. The menu is simple bar food but all is prepared with care and made to be delicious. Furthermore, the drink menu is extensive and ranges from local brews to favorite beers, wines, and mixers. Henry's is busiest during sports games but still worth a visit any time. If you're looking for a drink, snack, or full meal while you explore, check it out. - Sabrina Zirakzadeh
The Huckleberry is the only British tea room and restaurant in the Boulder area. Located in the heart of downtown Louisville, the restaurant is easy to find and an enjoyable diversion from wandering the other local shops and museums in the area. However, the popularity of the Huckleberry makes it difficult to just "pop in" without prior planning. The menu offers full British breakfasts and Colorado favorites alike, comfort food entrees served in the British style, and rich, freshly made desserts and wine for a full dining experience. The afternoon tea is the real draw, offering sandwiches, cheeses, and other snacks alongside the usual tea cakes and sweets. However, while the food is delicious, the prices are a bit high, with very little outside the breakfast menu costing less than USD10. -Sabrina Zirakzadeh
Cafe de Paris, located in the middle of Downtown Louisville, is a lovely international coffeehouse in a fantastic location. Within easy walking distance of all of the old town area, Cafe de Paris offers a place to stop for drinks or a small meal whether you've been shopping, browsing the historical district, visiting the park, or even bar-hopping in the evening. The coffee is made from fresh, organic beans, the sandwiches range from crab and cheese melts to eggplant and polenta, wine and beer are available alongside the hot and iced drinks, and live music and other events are scheduled five nights a week or more. Cafe de Paris is quite small but does not to reservations before dinner so be prepared to wait or put in your name and enjoy exploring the area in the meantime. For a quick, European-style bite, this is a great place to try. - Sabrina Zirakzadeh
