Nice place to grab a simple but well prepared lunch. Service is friendly and quick. Try to sit on the groundfloor or outside as the upper floor us unfortunately hidden behind a huge air conditionning blowing cold air in your face

We stopped in at Foolish Craig's for an early breakfast on a Saturday morning. My wife ordered the corned beef hash and I had the French Toast. Yum on all fronts, and the corned beef was great (they prepare it in house) with fried potatoes, peppers, and onions. The French Toast was great as well using some of there house... More

We eat lunch here periodically. Their burgers are surprisingly good. Big & very tasty. The interior is very Boulder and is filled with lots of college kids and 20-30 year olds. Good service, good prices. Can be noisy at times, but not intolerable. Sometimes a wait to get in. Breakfast here are also quite good.

My daugher and I sat at the bar and watched the busy staff prepare the food. They don't miss a beat. My BLT with guacamole on baguette was perhaps the best sandwich I've ever eaten. It was rated highly in a TV food show and I can see why. They spend time to make sure the bacon is crispy; my... More

I have been here several times. This was the most unimpressive visitwe have had. I hope this is not an indication of things to come.

Came here for a late breakfast. Busy small place. A bit crowded but wait staff was great. The portions are huge. Everything was great and we even tried a dessert crepe that melted in our mouth. Good selections and offer gluten free options.

When we got frustrated by the long lines at Snooze we went next door to Foolish Craigs. Good decision. DOn;t be put off by its bar-like atmosphere. It offered good service and good breakfast food. I'd gladly go again.

We hit Foolish Craig's for brunch kind of on a whim, after seeing that they offer a vegan option. After about a 20 minute wait we were seated, only to be forgotten. The good news there is that not one but three staff members personally apologized and for that...they rock! Mistakes happen, but when a restaurant trains their staff to... More

We decided to check out Foolish Craig's because it looked pretty good from Tripadvisor reports and the menu looked interesting.. We arrived about 4:30 on a Sunday. The place was not busy at all. Our waitress came by and took our drink order. When she returned with my cappuccino I asked her to bring me a spoon. She never did,... More
