Deli, Bakery, & Wine Bar

Old-world ingredients, Denver style.

More than a neighborhood deli

We’re best known for our signature sandwiches, but throughout the day, Leven plays the role of deli, coffee bar, wine shop, bakery, market, caterer, and neighborhood hangout.

We keep our ingredients simple, build on tradition, and bake a bit of joy into everything we do. You can find us right next to the Denver Art Museum, come say hi!

Five Star Reviews

What’s a deli-bakery-wine-bar?

Leven is a unique neighborhood hangout with all the things that make us happiest: old-world ingredients, fresh baked bread, accessible wines, familiar faces, and genuine hospitality.

Where are you located?

You can find us at 123 West 12th Avenue, right next to the Denver Art Museum. We’re centrally located in the heart Denver’s Golden Triangle / Cap Hill neighborhood.

Do you offer delivery?

Delivery is back! We’re currently delivering anywhere in a 5 mile radius for a $7.50 delivery fee. We can also accommodate broader delivery requirements for catering orders, call 303-325-5691 to inquire.

What kind of catering do you offer?

We specialize in events offering casual food and drink for 8 to 150 participants, ranging from business lunches, to corporate fundraisers, to private parties.

What are your hours?

We’re open every day for breakfast 7a-11a, and lunch 11a-4p. Mondays through Fridays, we also offer a Happy Hour with limited food service from 4p-7p.

When does the coffee bar turn into a wine bar?

Choose your own adventure: we serve coffee and wine all day, just the ratio shifts toward the latter over time. We also offer cork-and-go and a retail wine shop, so you can bring the fun home.

When can I buy fresh bread?

Our first loaves of fresh-baked sourdough and rye drop at 8a every morning. Loaves are generally available throughout the day, but we do need to save some for the sandos!

Is it Leven, Levin, or Levan?

The official spelling is “Leven”, a traditional variant of leaven, which is what makes dough rise. Unofficially, the spelling doesn’t matter as long as we lighten your day and lift your spirits.

Happy to say we’ve made it through the darkest 10 weeks of the year. Here’s to a little more morning light and a later golden hour🥂
Special we’re rockin today- braised beef, slaw, refried beans on a bolillo roll. 

Has a little heat on it🔥

No more boring catering!

Leven catering is the easy way to add something special to your next meeting, business lunch, company event, family reunion, holiday party, or joyous gathering of any kind.
