Looong wait and pretty good food

We went here on a Saturday for lunch. We had to wait a very long time for a table. The hostess was busing tables, filling drinks and hostessing. Once we were seated, the service was pretty good but not outstanding. The food was also very good but not fantastic. I am glad we went. It was good... read more

Good food in a hole in the wall cafe. Attentive service and large portions of food. Had the Foolish Craig's Crepe. Loaded with bacon, peppers, onions and potatos with eggs on top.

This was my first time visiting Foolish Craig's Cafe (a Diner, Drive In's and Dives destination) and was very happy with the experience. I arrived right before Happy Hour ended and ordered a couple of specials. The glass of house red, which was quite good for under $5 and chips with guacamole and salsa, which was just okay. For dinner,... More

Maybe we ordered the wrong thing but I'd say it was just okay. Based on the reviews I was expecting more. Had the crab and sweet corn cakes. They were good but I thought a little too "crabby." The BLT avocado sandwich which was featured on DDD was something I could make at home. I didn't get it. I could... More

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.
