Deli, Bakery, & Wine Bar
Old-world ingredients, Denver style.
Indoor Dining is Back!
That’s right: indoor dining has returned. We’ll still have the wine shop, social distancing, and enhanced cleaning, but we’re thrilled be once again inviting guests to “stay a while.”
And along with indoor dining, we’re firing up the grill again for afternoon fun. A bigger, better Happy Hour is now available 4pm to 7pm, Monday to Saturday.

“One word: WOW! I love this place. A true Jewish style deli. The pastrami was out of this world. And the mustard was so great I bought a tub of it. But back to the pastrami: it’s perfection. I can’t wait to go back. And often.”
— Neil R. —
“When there is a line after lunch time on a Sunday, you know you’re in the right place. Pastrami Reuben gets a 10/10, lots of yummy pastrami, perfect for sharing. Such a friendly staff too. Can’t recommend enough.”

A unique blend of deli, wine bar, bakery, and coffee shop
Leven is a modern take on traditional favorites, with roots stemming from all types of American Deli including Jewish, Italian, and Mediteranean. We cook from scratch, and carefully select ingredients with a focus on organic. We believe in old school food, which is why we bake our own bread, dry-age our 12-day pastrami, smoke fish in house, and grill sandwiches fresh on the spot. You can enjoy fresh roasted coffee to go or a glass of wine with lunch and dinner.
We’re up early every morning, baking up loaves of sourdough and rye, huge cookies, homemade chocolate-tahini-brownies, and daily pastry specials. We also have a large variety of wine, beer, and cocktails; a killer Happy Hour; and a delicious breakfast menu. If you can’t stop by, we have delivery and catering options so you can enjoy delicious, fresh-made deli favorites, such as the best pastrami in Denver, in the comfort of your own home, the convenience of your office, or out at your favorite Colorado parks.
Centrally located in the heart of Cap Hill and the Golden Triangle
Anthony and Luke missed having a go-to neighborhood Denver deli where they could grab a loaf of fresh baked sourdough or rye, a massive dinner sized sandwich, maybe even a beer. So, in 2018, they decided to start their own. At Leven Deli, we wanted to preserve the sentimental sensibility of the classic American deli, while providing a fresh new atmosphere with a contemporary model. Not only do we make all of our own smoked pastrami, roasted turkey, and other specialties from scratch, we are also a wine bar, coffee shop, and bakery where we bake our bread fresh every day. Whether you’re looking for the best Reuben in Denver, need a pick me up from our full espresso bar, or want to unwind and enjoy drinks with friends, we want to be your new neighborhood Denver deli.
Is it Leven, Levin, or Levan? The official spelling of our name is “Leven”, a traditional variant of leaven, which is what makes dough rise. Unofficially, the spelling doesn’t matter as long as our food and drink lightens your day and lifts your spirits!
