Great place to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. Under-rated dinner on the Boulder scene and excellent breakfast served almost all day long. Everything is made from scratch so you know everything is fresh and local. Best for eating with friends.

After a long visit to the classic poster shop just up the street, we stopped for a quick lunch at this very popular place. Just a short wait and we were comfortably ordering - my 15yo opted for a great burger and I asked our server what her favorite item was - she brought me an amazing Reuben - I... More

We like to visit Triple D's and this one was very average at best. The service was just ok as was the food. Would not go back to this restaurant especially when Snooze is right next door and is a hundred times better!!!

Rude young wait staff. Manager with an attitude and place smells bad. Manager was insistent that waiter wasn't rude, after she slammed the utensils down and acted as if it was a chore to seat us in this near empty place. Don't be foolish and instead go right next door to 'Snooze' excellent food, and friendly staff. You may have... More

My wife found this spot on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Well, that is until the desert crepe arrived. To our surprise, we saw a poster on the wall that said that this restaurant had been featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives. We had the most amazing artichoke spinach dip we have ever had. This appetizer... More

They do a good job of promoting that the restaurant appeared in "Driveins and Dives", but they still are a small place and still somewhat of dive with good food.

We had heard about Foolish Craig's from Guy of Triple D on Food Network, so we were expecting a lot... and did this little place deliver! It was so good we went back for breakfast twice in 5 days and a 3rd time just for mimosas! It's all good. Crepes like our French Canadian Grandma used to make, eggs benedict... More

After a fun day at the Pearl Street Mall we ate here for a late lunch. Even at 3 pm it was hopping. The service was friendly and quick and the food was tasty. They were already out of the bread of the day. The menus were filthy and the bathroom wasn't much better. We ignored it and stayed and... More

This is a cute and quaint little place. We shared a crepe and a BLT sandwich. They were both amazing and a very generous portion.

We stopped in on a Sunday for brunch after driving to Colorado the day before to visit my brother's family. I was the only one who hadn't been here. So, as a first timer I had to order a crepe selection and went for, what else, The Foolish Craig! It really hit the spot. We all enjoyed our food. Also... More
