Best place to burn 3 hours in DEN

It's looking like I will probably be stuck in DEN airport for about 3 hours next week, and I'm DL Reserve, not Amex Plat, so no SC means no lounge access. Any suggestions where is the best place to hang out? It will be morning, so I probably won't be ready yet for a glass of wine (though possibly will!)

There is a restaurant in the same terminal as Delta called Timberlake (I think). They have free wireless internet, and window access to see outside. Order yourself some Huevos Rancheros and relax.......I'll be there on Monday as well as Sept 17. I'll be taking my own advice on Sept 17 for breakfast.

Timberline is a good option. I'm quite partial to New Belgium Brewery (or taproom, forget exactly what they call it) at the far end of B. Very easy to get to from C. Great breakfast and bloodies.

Going to Telluride the week after this trip, and that is definitely the place to burn one

Thanks for the advice, everyone! Sounds like I'll be able to get a good meal.

Den is a very easy airport to kill three hours or stay productive, whichever you need

A ton of nice restaurants and bars. travel between any concourse is easy the train is frequent and fast so no problem visiting other concourses. concourse b has the nicest stuff and upstairs is much quieter and there is a section with private cubicles for laptop work and free internet. den is a very easy place I've booked longer layovers on weekdays just to work and stay connected its the best connection airport in America. Not as user friendly as an origin or destination but excellent for layovers.

No delta club in den anyway

Root Down in Terminal C is the best place by far IMO. Airport location for a cool funky place in downtown Denver. Great food.
