No matter what you decide expect ample portions and a delicious meal but the following five options are tops when it comes to the lunch menu at DJ’s Cafe.


The feature of the hot sandwich menu portion, roasted eggplant is a delightful surprise. One of the best options on the entire menu, this sandwich will crave your midday hunger and leave you counting the days until your return.

Comprised of succulent eggplant, feta cheese, tomato, fresh basil and a garlic aioli on grilled and freshly baked baguette it leaves no feature of the palette untested. Further, patrons can pair one-half a sandwich with a cup of soup to create a specialty combination any day of the week.  


A unique name for a similarly different type of sandwich. The Spuckie J also comes served on a freshly baked baguette but is served cold as opposed to the roasted eggplant.

Both meats and cheeses make up one of the most delightful items on the lunch menu. Ham, genoa salami, provolone, shredded romaine, tomatoes, giardiniera, and Italian dressing are the staples of this lunch favorite.

If not used in creating a combination with a cup of soup, all sandwiches are served with the patron's choice of french fries, fresh fruit, coleslaw, or potato salad.


One of the best salads available in Denver is easily located at DJ’s Cafe and provides a great option during lunch for any day of the week. Salads come served with any of the following dressing options: ranch, blue cheese, citrus vinaigrette, balsamic vinaigrette, or Italian and can be spiced up with the grilled chicken option.

The spinach bacon salad is a mix of baby spinach, hard boiled eggs, bacon, tomatoes, cucumbers, and house made croutons.


While the ingredients that comprise your Italian chicken sandwich may be similar to those of any other restaurant offering a similar specialty sandwich, DJ’s Cafe grilled chicken breast and grilled focaccia bread liven up this menu choice.

Combined with prosciutto, tomato, mozzarella, basil, and garlic aioli this chicken sandwich options can’t be beat.


Finally, the Popper Burger owns the title of best burger and would seriously contend for the number one item available on a menu packed with items to satisfy. While visitors can create their own burger the “Popper” is a chef specialty for those who like a little heat.

Beginning with a one-half pound freshly ground beef patty the jalapeno cream cheese and egg bun create an amazing taste.
