WaterCourse Foods is proud to serve a 100% vegetarian menu. Our style of comfort food has won over the hearts and stomachs of people from all types of dietary backgrounds. The greatest compliment we hear (and we hear it often) is when a initially reluctant patron, who was dragged in by their spouse or kids, says they never thought they would eat vegetarian food and now WaterCourse is their favorite restaurant.
WaterCourse Food's philosophy, like our food, is simple and accessible. We have created an atmosphere that welcomes everyone. We prepare fresh ingredients daily to produce incredibly satisfying vegetarian comfort foods in a welcoming environment served by a friendly and efficient wait staff for a reasonable price. We are proud to be members of the hospitality industry and adhere to the highest standards set by some of the world's finest restaurants and hotels.
By maintaining a completely vegetarian menu, we believe we minimize our environmental footprint and provide a welcome alternative to many restaurants in the city. In addition to the food we serve and vendors we choose, WaterCourse Foods is dedicated to reducing our negative environmental impact by recycling everything we can, including fryer oil that is converted into bio-diesel. Our to-go containers are completely biodegradable. We serve water only upon request. We offer 10% discounts to bike riders.
Our story is one of perseverance and patience. By adhering to the philosophy of mastering one task before taking on another, WaterCourse Foods began as a breakfast and lunch restaurant serving only five days a week. Over the next 10 years we have slowly and methodically grown into a 7-day a week breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant with our own bakery and wine and beer license. WaterCourse Foods is lucky to have the best clientele in the city. With their patience and understanding we continue to learn how to handle a growing business without sacrificing the love and hospitality our clientele have come to expect. Our story will continue to grow as we develop events catering
As a way of continuing our history of supporting non-profits throughout Colorado, the WaterCourse Foundation is also in the works. By creating the WaterCourse Foundation it is our hope to contribute to causes that we are passionate about. In the meantime, you may request a donation by clicking here.
Dan and Michelle Landes began WaterCourse Foods with plenty of what Mark Twain remarked were the makings of great entrepreneurs, ignorance and courage. What they lacked in finances they made up for in tenacity. Moments before they unlocked the front door to WaterCourse for the first time Michelle realized they had no money in the register to make change with. With no money in the bank, Michelle ran back to their house and emptied the change jar. On February 19,1998, one month after the birth of WaterCourse Foods Charley Landes was born. On October 6, 2001 Henry Landes was born.
The Landes family live on an urban permaculture farm run by solar with organic gardens, chickens, fruit trees, three big dogs, a toothless cat, a porch cat, one leopard gecko and a speedy little tortoise.
