Great food for a cheap price!

I have been here a few times and have always had a great breakfast and fast service. It's a small area but you don't feel confined. Staff is very friendly and willing to talk if you want or just get you what you need and leave you alone. The food is really good for the prices. If you order just... read more

I liked their Big Dill breakfast a lot, very similar idea to egg benedict. They were also dog friendly. We tied our puppy to the bicycle stand right outside of their porch/patio, and they got water for him and umbrella to provide shade. Efficient and friendly wait staff.

I loved this place! The food was healthy and delicious! I had some gluten free pancakes that were to die for! Heavous rancheros were great ... Nice outside seating and fast service. Fair pricing

WE were on our way to Estes Park and found this great gem for breakfast. The food was fresh, the service was good. It reminded of the fresh farm to table restaurants in Napa Valley CA. Since we have family in Boulder wi will visit again :)

Nice local breakfast & lunch spot. Large menu, many options, generous portions. the Boulder Latte was really good (vanilla and cinnamon), as were the Big Dill eggs and blueberry corn bread. I went with friends and we all enjoyed our meals. Service was friendly, relaxed, effective. I accidentally left a shawl there. The staff found it and tucked it away... More

One of the best breakfast places in Boulder that is very popular with local residents and a unique place for visitors to experience! Indoor and outdoor seating, very good food, excellent coffee and some of the best pies in town! The servers are friendly and attentive and if you visit on a Sunday morning you may be welcomed by Dana... More

The portions are large, that's the main good thing. Also it is regular ' 'Merican comfort food, and the outside sitting area is very pleasant. Those things being said,the inside is always crowded and hectic, the food is only ok, and the service too.

Spent Easter in Boulder to visit our daughter. After church at Flatirons Church (overwhelmingly awesome), we had brunch at The Walnut Cafe. They have 3 locations and we went to the one on Walnut Street. Awesome timing, no wait for a table. The place was bright, cheery and full of friendly help. The specialty coffees and Chai Tea were wonderful.... More
