Had Sunday brunch here and we all could get what we wanted between breakfast type food and lunch type food. My burger was delicious even though I ended up eating it with a fork because it wouldn't fit in my mouth! Thick hand pressed patty with all the goodies cooked just right.

What more can you ask but to have good coffee, wide selections of healthy breakfast options and the Grateful Dead being played on the stereo? Just a block off the Pearl Street mall so also convenience.

Located just a few blocks off the Pearl St., Mall . We had a late afternoon Sunday meal. Both of what we ordered was superb. I had the homemade corned beef hash and it truly was homemade. My wife had a BLT which despite its ordinary sounding name was just terrifically prepared. Pricing was very fair. Excellent, and the menu... More

To me, this is the best breakfast in Boulder. Everything is exceptional from the coffee to the Bloody Marys to the diverse food offerings. Expect a wait but it is worth it.

Had the corned beef and hash breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. Corned beef was nicely done, moist in roughly one inch cubes. Same with the roasted potatoes. Rounded out with onions and green peppers. Preparation was thoughtful compared to standard New York style corned beef and hash. Companion had a breakfast burrito and was pleased with it.

I debated with myself whether to give it a four but I think a three is appropriate. The food is pretty good and the kitchen makes an effort to have a few different things on the menu (e.g. Bacon Mac 'n Cheese); it all seems well prepared but some of the flavors are slightly dissonant. In fairness, I started off... More

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
