If you sit outside, you are right on the Pearl Street Mall and can view the passerbys and activity on the Mall. Often there are performers, mimes and music to enjoy.

On Pearl Street mall, we went for brunch and found this cafe. It's more treated towards lunch and dinner but they did have 5-6 egg Benedict dishes. I chose the crab and shrimp cake egg Benedict, with chipotle cheese sauce and roasted potatoes, OMG! It was fantastic, the sauce had a kick but not too much and the potatoes were... More

We ate here twice during our stay. The food was quite good, but, I'm sorry to say the service was pretty bad. We ate there a 2nd time because every other place was packed and the kids were hungry and we knew at least the food would be good. We hoped for better service but were disappointed again. Let me...

We ate here late one evening and the food was great, half price appetizer and drinks were a good deal. Do not order queso with chicken, it was not good but the chicken enchiladas were delicious. My husband had fish-n-chips. He said it was ok but he prefers a crispier fried fish, this was not.

The Happy Hour pricing at the Boulder Cafe is excellent. It starts at about 3:30 pm every day and offers half off on appetizers and drinks. We were there on a Saturday evening from 5-7 pm and ordered a variety of food and drinks. The food, drinks and service were good. Friends at the table with us who live in... More

Ate there with some friends last week. We got there a little later after the dinner rush about 8:30pm. The evening was just ok, the food, just ok, the service again just ok. Nothing memorable on either front. Certainly not great food as others had said, and a recent review mentioned the place's service standards being lacking. Food: I had... More

I now remembered why I didn't like this restaurant about five years ago when I ate there. It looks inviting, but offers only medium-quality food in relatively small portions. Most items are quite spicy.

We arrived hungry and excited to order. We reviewed the menu up front and found some great options. We ordered the white chicken chili quest as an appetizer. It arrived quickly. It was very good. However, we never saw our waiter again for about 15 minutes. We finished the appetizer and waited, and waited to order. At this point we... More

The best thing about this place is sitting outside and people watching on the Pearl Street Mall. The food was okay but when we left I still felt kinda hungry. I ordered a salmon burger which at $12.99 was not cheap, but it was very small. I chose cole slaw as a side instead of fries. My husband got the... More

I am never disappointed when I go to the Boulder Café. No matter what I try it's great. Great salads, great burgers and brunch faire. Great Bloody Mary's. You will not be disappointed.
