Excellent & varied breakfast selections (for vegetarians before 5pm); very good coffee & service

It's important to note that the menu changes at 5pm and it becomes *much* less vegetarian-friendly. With that in mind, it's an excellent choice for vegetarians if you arrive before 5pm and order "breakfast for lunch" (or merely breakfast for breakfast). My husband and I visited this weekend... read more

We were spending a week in Boulder and our first day we went to Foolish Craigs after a stroll down Pearl Street. Loved the jumbly atmosphere, reminded me a bit of Mellow Yellow in Hyde Park in Chicago (they also are known for crepes) but more modern (except for the 70's music) and brighter, and there's a bar. DH ordered... More

We were visiting Boulder, Colorado and I decided to check online to see if there were any restaurants Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives had ever visited in Boulder. And sure enough, he visited Foolish Craig's Café. So we decided to visit as well. The diner was very nice and the weather was perfect for a meal outside... More

We only had desert there, but it was a great place for desert and decaf after wandering the walking mall after dinner.

Great location right on Pearl and across from public parking. We tried the hippie burger and guacamole BLT. More than enough food for 4 people! It wasn't too busy for dinner, but service was still slow.

My husband and I both had fabulous meals here - he had the Cuban Sandwich while I had the Greek Omelet. Yum, yum, yum! Even our child cleaned the plate of the kids meal. We then splurged for a piece of butter rum caramel crepe cake which was divine - unlike any other dessert I've ever had in a restaurant.... More

Ate here with my husband and two teenagers based on TripAdvisor and DDD. The guys each had burgers (one beef, one bison) and were pleased with their selections--the fries were terrific. My daughter and I each ordered different risottos. While the proteins on each were well prepared (shrimp and chicken), there was way too much bland risotto and not enough... More

We visited here based on TripAdvisor but didn't have a good experience. The table we were seated at wasn't cleaned and my rolled napkin was alreay dirty. Server forgot numerous items. I ordered the Reuben which was dry and heavily sauced. Bad service and bad food mean I am not coming back here again.
