Rainbow is my first choice for breakfast. Ever since I learned to add vegetables to my eggs I have been feeling better and my blood results are so much better. But I have learned that quality food makes all the difference. And Rainbow is quality. They have the best bacon in town. My favorite... read more

I have come to the Rainbow a couple of times for breakfast after working out with some friends. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Every time I have gone, I have have gotten the banana rum french toast with a side of breakfast potatoes and a strawberry/banana smoothy. It so so delicious and sweet with just enough salt to...

Eggs benedict (my usual fare) was good, coffee was okay but as per most Fort Collins restaurants, this was pricey. Servings were plentiful.

Since going gluten and dairy free in 2013 due to allergies, I haven't been able to find restaurants that do much in the way of sauces or great flavors for my limitations. This restaurant is amazing! I found many things I could eat AND they had great flavor! What a treat for me. Eat here and it's like a real... More

I have been coming to the Rainbow for many years, in fact it's one of my favorite breakfast places. This day we came for lunch to celebrate my daughters 26th birthday. The service was awesome, quick but helpful. The food was simply delicious. I ordered the pesto chicken. It came with a side of sautéed brussel sprouts, and polenta with... More

I started coming to The Rainbow 15 years ago. It was very small and quaint. Service was good and the menu was different. If you like to eat good organic healthy food, this is your place. They have expanded to add an outside patio, which is terrific. The menu changes a little from time to time, but the Eggs Benedict... More

Love, love, love this place. I have eaten lunch here several times and have never been disappointed. There is something for everyone, and everything is just a home-cooked healthy option. Highly recommend!

I have been to Rainbow 3 times- I will first say the food has been great each time- we are vegetarians and they have lots of options- I have tried something different each time and each meal has been great which has kept me coming back. However, the service has been less than average each time which tells me it... More

We have lived in town for over 20 years and have come to this restaurant frequently when we want a good meal and have never been disappointed. I was inspired to write this review after my husband and I went to lunch and said we were going to split a menu item. Rainbow went to the effort of taking the... More
