“Just the best atmosphere. When you order they ask your name to make it easy on the waiter but it’s a really personal and home feel. Great home cooking and genuinely nice people. Best experience Ive had at a place where you can get full on 10 bucks.”

“BEST SOUL FOOD IN DENVER!!! This restaurant is a staple to the denver- metro area and there’s a reason why. Everything is cooked to order, the ambiance is unique and Corafaye will greet you her self.”

“The service, the atmosphere, the menu. I loved it all. It feels like being at your grandmother’s house, you may not want to leave.”

Featured In Westword

“Brought to you by generations of Southern inspiration and love” is what it says on the menu — which is code, too, for sweet tea, fried chicken, fried catfish, fried pork chops and macaroni and cheese done not always well, but always right.

Lunch At Corafaye’s
(A soul food restaurant in Denver, Colorado).

The tongue is tied to recollection,
as thick as the good gravy
and as secretive as the collection

of recipes handed down like Scripture
from matriarch to daughter
in her family’s ancestral tree.

Believe me when I tell you
it’s food that can make you cry.
This delicious genealogy
of fried okra; sweet potato pie.
Every taste is true: from the black-eyed
peas to the candied yams,
the catfish and the “recession special”
Spam sandwiches.

It’s just like I remember
in my grandmother’s kitchen:
from the wood-paneled walls
to the sound of fried chicken
splattering in the pan.

If love can be measured
by food for the soul,
then we have been expanded
by a love so large
some may call it gluttony,
but I prefer abundance.
A feast with the fixings
free of charge.
