Everything is usually outstanding, but today the home fries were cold and hard, seemed like they were prolly left over batch from breakfast. They are usually really good. We were there shortly after 1130.

Our family of six went to Citrus the Diner because of the vast variety of menu options. A lot of us got breakfast. I had the shrimp and grits which were creamy and absolutely delicious! The staff is very knowledgeable about the gluten free options available. My son said the gluten- free toast was amazing, which is something you can’t usually say about gluten-free bread. I can’t wait to go back to this charming little restaurant with a fresh menu and great service! Thanks to Jersey and management for making it so enjoyable!

We love Citrus. Every item we have tried has been amazing. Word of Advice: Don't order delivery. We requested our order to be delivered at 12:30. Our food did not arrive until 1:30. We think their online ordering system is deceiving. You are asked what time you want your order, but in actuality, the time you select is the time the order is submitted. On the other hand, their pickup system is the best in Denver. Park, text your spot # and your food is delivered right to your car. Excellent service. Excellent food. They are busy because their food is amazing. So be ready to wait if you arrive during normal dining times. Try the Maui Waui or Speed Boat. So delicious!

Great eats! Service was great, menu was small and diverse so if its mid morning and you dont feel like breakfast, they have other options. No complaints here. The atmosphere was intimate, but we sat outside. If you are in the area give them a try.

If you want to be ruined from any other biscuit....try Citrus. Everyone else's will seem just okay. Very kind service. These people somehow make your breakfast not just their job but their REASON for being there. Thank you to all of you for such a great spot to eat.

I literally can’t think of the perfect words to describe my dining experience. Everything from their bacon and eggs to their GRITS were so well made and seasoned. My husband and I couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the food was most of the time we were eating. (Not even counting my mimosa). Stop what you’re doing and go eat there. I bet you’ll see my husband and I there at least every Saturday.
