The Boulder Cafe closed a few weeks ago. This was an old iconic restaurant on Pearl Street and will be sadly missed. Hopefully another good eating place will take the space.

This was one of the best places to eat in Bouder, the happy hour menu was excellent. Hopefully they'll come back and open somewhere else in the city. I highly recommend it.

Since coming back to Colorado for the summer we noticed that some of the restaurants in Boulder are no longer there. We invited one of our neighbors to happy hour at the Boulder Cafe where the appetizers are half price and you get a discount on wine. As we were sitting in the bar area I was looking around and...

We were hungry on a Friday evening, and the wait line was short. Food was average at best. Same with service. Appetizer arrived with the entree, a huge no no for any restaurant. Waiter was disinterested. group next to us was extremely loud. Oh well. Won't bother again, not with so many superior choices a short walk away.

The happy hour is long at Boulder Cafe and the choices for appetizers during this time are excellent. You can make a meal (and somewhat healthy too) during their happy hour. So sad that it'll be closing this summer. Good people watching too along Pearl Street. The waitstaff is very efficient and friendly.

At 5 pm on a busy Saturday we dropped by the Boulder Café and were immediately seated in a comfy booth next to the window where we could gaze at the people on the Pearl Street Mall. The server was friendly and helpful, the food was great, the servings generous. I had a mahi mahi with mango salsa, black pepper,... More

After a hike in the Flatirons, we wanted a restaurant that was truly "Boulder". With a name like Boulder Cafe, it had to be right. The food was very good and the service was fast. We were amazed that the total bill was so reasonable, especially since it is located on the Pearl Street Mall. The only complaint we had... More

We came to Boulder Cafe a party of 6 & were seated in the back. The bbq pork sliders and black bean sliders were solidly good. The chicken tenders on the kids' meal were too fried & difficult to eat. Service was great. The food was pretty good - better pub food than I expected. What led me to rate... More

I've walked by the Boulder Cafe on several occasions, but never went in. So when I had two guests come in from town, we decided to try it after a long hike in the foothills. The food was delicious. We had the cheese fondue appetizer which is really easy to share. The service was great and the atmosphere was lively!... More

Old Pearl Street building right on Main Street. The food was great and the wait staff efficient and friendly. Would definately go back and recommend to other travelers.
