Rode our bikes here this morning to have breakfast on their patio. It's by far the best " breakfast patio" in Fort Collins, shady but sunny in spots, sheltered from traffic and lovely flower and vegetable beds to sit by. My husband had the Santa Fe quesadilla and I had the sweet potato burrito, both were delicious. If you're looking... More

Went solved The Rainbow for years for breakfast or lunch..it is the BEST, FOR ORGANIC vegan, or "flexitarian" and carnivore options Get the Benedict or the green eggs and ham with spinach and cream cheese and then top with Horsetooth hot sauce.

The breakfasts are always tasty and now we can get there quickly on the new MAX bus line. I am particularly fond of their pancakes. Service is top notch. Have eaten here many times and will come back again.

Not your typical restaurant. Very homey and casual, with a great range of flavors, including many excellent vegetarian options. The menu also spans a range from eclectic (Ali Baba) to familiar (BLT), making is easy for everyone to find something they like. And the value can't be beat, especially when you consider that half orders are available for a reduced... More

Came here with a large group for dinner and we were easily accommodated. Everyone loved their dinner! The Ali Baba had such good flavor that I didn't even need the dipping sauces. My boyfriend liked the poblano and cheese enchiladas. The chicken pesto was raved about. It was nice that there were meat options and SO many vegetarian options! Many... More

I love that you can eat breakfast with your dogs on the patio of the Rainbow! When we had brunch there on a Saturday morning, there were several other tables dining with their dogs as well. The waitress even brought a dog dish and filled it twice for our two dogs. The breakfast here has been very good the several... More

While visiting family in Fort Collins, we decided to try The Rainbow. It has a great selection of many gluten free options. Breakfast was wonderful. Would recommend highly.

I dropped by on a trip to Fort Collins. I've eaten here many times over the year. I can't recall the first time I ate here, but I DO remember that before it was a restaurant, I actually banked in this building in the early 70s! Still the best egg dishes ever. All served by some of the friendliest servers... More

Lovely little spot with great variations on your favorite breakfast and lunch entrees. Server was knowledgeable and friendly and food was freshly prepared. Husband and I both had eggs Benedict, but different varieties-both were delicious. Eat in or out-we choose in because of the heat, but outside looked cozy. Parking a bit if a problem, but that's the only drawback.

My daughter and I(Vt) recently visited my son who was working in foco. He is vegan for enviromental reasons and insisted we check this place out. Got to say I was super impressed. The menu caters to everyone. We actually ate there a few times and every meal was just as good if not better than the last. And the... More
