Noise, loud music, screaming kids, clanging dishes, having to YELL to speak with the person across from you is what we experienced today. We also waited over 30 minutes for breakfast once we were seated at about 12:30. I have to say the food was pretty good (vegetable quiche, eggs, bacon, great breakfast potatoes) so would love to come back... More

I've been going here my entire life, and I still love it. It uses incredibly delicious and fresh ingredients in their food and it just feels great. One of my favorites!

This is one of the best breakfast places in Boulder and it's not pretentious. You will have to wait on the weekends. The food is made with great ingredients. Good Gluten Free options. Interesting specials. Lunch menu is limited and there are better options in town.

We were driving around looking for a place to eat after hiking in the mountains all day. We happened to drive by and decided to give it a try. What a great place. We were able to sit outside and the for was amazing. Service was top notch too. Highly recommend!

The South Side Walnut Cafe is far better than the original Walnut Cafe. The service is excellent, all the food is very good and comes quickly (just the opposite of the original Walnut). Prices are very reasonable. The ambiance is nice enough. It is a popular venue, so one might have to wait at times. Nice outdoor patio, unfortunately next... More

This place serves breakfast and lunch but I have only eaten breakfast here. It is consistently very good food, good service. The atmosphere can busy and loud but that's the way it is in good breakfast places. In a town full of great breakfast options South Side holds its own.

Definitely go for the egg scrambles, with chorizo, ham or any combination which this south side spot whips up. The sun is usually shining at 6,000+ feet in Boulder, but Walnut Cafe has blinds to shade the inside or outside tables for full sun. Just a great spot to meet a friend for breakie.

I have been here once before and it was much better. This time the fruit side was not even close to fresh as described and the dill eggs were bland. The waitress served my water and never came back to refresh it. It was disappointing. Not certain I will return.

I love this spot, there is usually a wait (on the weekends) but they are great at turning tables without making you feel rushed. I've been there multiple times, just yesterday in fact. Their Plain Jane omelette (or scramble) is awesome because you can add as many toppings as you want without extra charge! I also love their french toast... More

There is a reason that Southside Walnut Cafe is always crowded, no matter the day of the week. Families, friends, business lunches, high school students on break, everybody loves it. Even if there is a wait, it is always worth it. The price is reasonable and the staff friendly and no matter how crowded it gets the food always comes... More
