Highlands Cafe & Bar


The Radiator is a café and bar in Denver Highlands and Sunnyside. While we are widely known as a coffee shop featuring the artisan style coffee from Pablo’s Coffee, along with tea and kombucha. We serve breakfast sandwiches on bagels from Leroy’s Bagels. Our menu consists of bagel sandwiches and artisan coffee, as well as a large selection of craft beers and cocktails that we serve all day long. Our craft beer & cocktail bar includes a large number of local craft beers, ciders & sours, and IPAs, as well as our house made red & white sangria. We also have rotating drink options so ask your server. During weekends, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, we host local food trucks on our patio. We often feature limited time food options, and they can be found on our socials. And yes, these include PIZZA! We serve a limited number of pizzettes daily and regularly run out so be sure to ask us what is available. Honestly… who doesn’t love pizza? 

At the Radiator, we strive to make sure everyone is welcome and are a dog friendly restaurant, so don’t forget to bring your furry friends. Join us for a coffee in our shop for a quick pick-me-up, have a cold drink to cool off in the summer heat, and make friends with our staff and patrons. We love the camaraderie and will be happy to see your smiling faces.
