Best Of 2015: Place to Eat Local/Sustainable

Now 2 years old, Seeds continues to provide weekday lunches to anyone, regardless of ability to pay, while focusing on locally produced foods of all kinds. In fact, founder Lyn Harwell, a former executive chef in New Orleans, says 75 percent of Seeds' food comes from Colorado. Seeds also strives to create jobs, using "the power of food to empower people to own their lives again," says Harwell. "We give them living-wage jobs, not minimum-wage jobs." He says Seeds is assessing the possibility of expanding to Saturday or evening hours. Did we mention that the dishes served here are delicious? Drop in and, as the café recommends, "Pay as you can, or pay it forward." — Pam Zubeck
