Our list of Best Littleton restaurants
Opinions and recommendations are below.
- The Melting Pot
The Melting Pot, which specializes in fondue, is part of a national chain, but don’t get it confused—it is still fine dining. They have created an intimate setting that makes it one of the region’s most romantic restaurants. They offer outdoor seating under sparkling lights when the weather permits. It’s perfect for couples but great for groups, too, to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or another special occasion.
- Steakhouse 10
Steakhouse 10 is another fine dining option in Littleton. It is a traditional, old-fashioned steakhouse with tremendous service and a formal atmosphere. It’s perfect for momentous family occasions such as graduations or milestone birthdays. In terms of hours, they’re open for lunch during the week to cater to the business crowd, but dinner only on Saturdays.
- Izakaya Den
Izakaya Den is a Japanese sushi restaurant. They have worked to create a really sleek and fun atmosphere, making it one of Littleton’s trendiest restaurants. Patrons rave not only about the delicious, fresh sushi but the other Japanese specialties, such as tempura. Even if the food were mediocre (which it’s not), the interior would still be worth checking out on its own.
- Nono’s Café
Nono’s Café serves authentic, amazing Cajun food, something that isn’t easy to find in Colorado restaurants. They specialize in Po’Boy sandwiches, a staple of working-class New Orleans cuisine, as well as quintessential Crescent City desserts, such as beignets. In terms of hours, they open at 8 am on weekends for brunch. With wonderful soup selections and hearty Jambalaya, this establishment is great for our 55+ communities and seniors, here in Littleton. It is also situated less than a mile from our Wind Crest Senior Living Community, near W County Line Rd & S Santa Fe Dr.
- Jajá Bistrô
You might be surprised by the name to find out that this is actually a French restaurant, named for a wine popular in the French Riviera, or the Cote d’Azur (Blue Coast). The décor and menu take their inspiration from that region as well, featuring such favorite French dishes as mussels and fries and other seafood delicacies, which are amazingly fresh, especially given Littleton’s land-locked location. Outdoor seating with water views is available, and they serve brunch on Sundays until 2 pm.
- Thai Bistro
While not much to look at from the outside, Thai Bistro is stunning when you walk through the doors—a real surprising treat. The menu features all of your favorite Thai foods, including Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles, several types of curry, and many other dishes. Offering dine-in, take-out, and delivery, this is sure to become one of your all-time favorite Thai restaurants.
- Café Terracotta
Located in an old house, this amazing café features remarkable steaks and chops prepared in unique ways that bring out the flavor of the proteins. Their menu is eclectic, featuring flavor profiles from around the globe. In addition to steak and chops, their menu also has fresh fish and delectable sides, like truffle macaroni and cheese. They offer outdoor dining and the menu changes seasonally.
- Kate’s Wine Bar
Kate’s Wine Bar offers a gustatory experience that is truly one of a kind. Located in historic downtown Littleton, the wine selection is impressive, even compared to other wine bars around the country. The menu items are designed to complement the glasses, and the staff is very knowledgeable about the wines and pairing options. Its cozy atmosphere makes it a great place to spend a snowy afternoon or evening, and the hours extend late on weekends.
- Jake’s Brew Bar
Just as Kate’s Wine Bar is all about the wine, Jake’s Brew Bar is all about the beer and the coffee. That’s right, this unique blend makes it one of Littleton’s most unusual restaurants. Part coffeehouse, part tasting room, it’s a wonderful place to hang out and get work done during the day and gather with friends in the evening. Their beer menu rotates on a weekly basis and is mostly local, so there’s always something new to try. While limited, the staple items on the menu are done exceptionally well.
- Pierre & Michel Authentic French Bakery
We’ll finish off this list with an absolute must-try for Littleton residents and visitors alike. The French pastries at Pierre & Michel are absolutely exquisite, decadent, and indulgent. What’s more, they have perfectly captured the feeling (and the aroma) of a quintessential French boulangerie. They have a dining room as well, where you can enjoy sit-down meals such as quiches and French toast. Be aware—they’re so popular that they often have to close hours early from running out of food.
