Organic-oriented eats plus music, poetry, dance lessons & tarot readings that add to the funky vibe.- Google
"With swing dancing upstairs and blues music down, its an eclectic mix of music."
"I go to the poetry slams often, but tonight we came for dinner."

Service was good. Our waitress was attentive and pleasant. Food was mediocre at best considering the high prices. The whole place was kinda dingy, chairs were cheap, beat to heck and uncomfortable. Credit cards were not accepted which is silly in 2015 since I have been to garage sales which accepted credit cards. Don't think I would go back.

Amazing place for live music and dancing, but the food was mediocre. There was an awesome quirkiness to the place that really added to the effect.

I don't go out to eat in general.. food is ok actually. Service is so/so; but generally I get lousy service wherever i go in Denver though.. whereas i tend to get excellent service in the east coast where im from.

Mercury Cafe is awesome! Loved the fresh food. The menu is very detailed and there is something for everyone! Locally sourced when possible. Met by a lady with a huge smile and made us feel welcome. Server was very helpful and friendly and was fantastic. We will be back!

The Mercury Cafe ('Merc') food, wine and draft beer experience is all organic, sustainable and delicious. The Ballroom upstairs is the best dance hall in town. The 'Jungle Room' supports the talented Denver Poetry Community and speakers for environmental and social justice. All colors creeds sexual preferences very welcome. An extraordinary place.

Was not impressed with the food or the service. It was organic, but I felt it was overpriced. We went with a large group and most of the people in the group did not like their food or finish what they ordered. So glad to see more organic and gluten free options, but just wouldn't recommend this one. Also- they don't accept credit cards...

Went here because of the open mic night. The host was late, showed up stoned, and then didn't call me up to pick out a slot. Not a very nice way to treat musicians from out of town. The only thing that kept this from being a one star experience is that the atmosphere is cool, and hippy, and the food was very good. Also, they don't accept credit cards but do have an ATM on site.

I go to the poetry slams often, but tonight we came for dinner. The moment we walked in the door our server greeted us with a poor attitude. I was introducing someone to this place i had grown to love only to have their most rude and appalling server ruin the entire experience. First, I received dirty silverware. The butter that came with the bread was half spreadable and warm and the other half was cold and not spreadable... I dig the whole concept of sustainable living, but I don't pay to eat somewhere for someone else's left overs. We started with quinoa and bean dish. When she brought it over, the presentation shocked me as I've had this before. The beans looked carved off of a loaf then microwaved, and the salsa was MIA. This 4 dollar dish ALWAYS has three items. I had to ask repeatedly for the salsa as it's tasteless without and the last time I asked I had to get up out of my seat to be able to speak with our server. I also had to go retrieve a pitcher of water when I saw our waitress look at our empty glasses and walk away to do other things more than once. She bussed other tables but allowed our plates to pile up. I have been in the service industry for over a decade and I know and live by the idea that you earn your tips. If I choose to spend my money where you work, you serve me an experience not just plates of food. We paid our bill and left no tip. I wrote the reason for this on the actual ticket hoping someone who might care about that business would see it. I won't be back and I plan to tell all my friends how terrible this evening was that we spent at the mercury cafe anytime I hear it brought up or suggested as a potential plan.
