Had lunch at Foolish Craig's based on a recommendation from the guy at the tourist information booth on Pearl Street Mall. The restaurant is on Pearl Street but past the east end of the pedestrian-only zone, so the small outdoor seating area has to deal with traffic noise. We chose to eat inside, which was also noisy due to it... More

Our waitress was friendly, happy, and fantastic! We had breakfast there, and there was no issue of ordering half cheesy grits and half potatoes...those little things make it a great place! The potatoes were amazing, as was the sausage. We had the crepes, which were good, but the veggies, meat, cheese, and eggs inside is what rocked the breakfast! The... More

My only negative comment on Foolish Craig's was that the music was just a touch too loud. Otherwise -- good service, good food, and the place had a dive sort of charm to it. Definitely worth another visit next time in Boulder.

Best breakfast in Boulder. Get there early as there is usually a line. We actually came back for lunch a couple days later because we had such a great meal.

Came for early morning breakfast on Sunday morning. Great great service, constantly coffee refills, decent prices they make a killer bloody Mary!! So funny, there's a line out the door at the place next-door... this place is hundred times better. The place next-door is more kids family.

We are fans of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. After researching spots Guy had on his show, we decided to stop at Foolish Craig's. I ordered the BLT that was featured on the show. The bacon was tasteless and the sandwich was just fair. We ordered Crepes for desert. They were stacked and covered with a sauce. We couldn't eat more... More

My wife and I saw this restaurant on Trip Advisor and noticed it got great reviews so we decided to give it a try. The warm Brie appetizer was amazing! However, the Chicken Duxelle crepe from DDD was average. Prices in Boulder seem to be a little higher than other cities, so given the situation the prices were reasonable. The... More

We arrived in town without breakfast after a long drive from RMNP. Starving! This place did the trick. I had the Hootenanny (beggie and egg scramble). It was awesome!! Husband had the lox and bagel. I think I got the better end of the deal.... more food! Great service and nice breakfast selections.

Despite its Popularity, the waiting time was not very long.. This place had a varied menu.. I tried a Bison Burger as I was in Colorado, why not.. It was very good. I'm sure a cow would thank me for my selection. Boulder is a good place to walk around and enjoy..you'll find this restaurant easily.. Lots of different Beers... More

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.
