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

I love the Rainbow. Breakfast and lunch are amazing. You leave feeling healthy and happy. Their patio is beautiful and the owners create a warm and welcoming environment. If I had to pick one resturant to eat all my meals at for the rest of my life, the Rainbow would be my choice.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Fort Collins but haven't been for lunch in awhile. Great organic and gluten free options. I had the Quinoa burger topped with fresh chilies and guacamole, side of brussel sprouts was even better.

While the prices were higher than expected for a small cafe with small portions, the food was very good. Service was fast and super friendly. Clean fresh dining room, small tables, open and light. Will return to try other dishes.

This morning my wife and I were looking forward to a quiet breakfast together so we could enjoy a meal and talk for a while. We couldn't decide on a place. After thinking about it a while I remembered passing by Rainbow multiple times and saying to myself "I wonder what that place is like". So away we went! We... More

Could there have been a change in management? Was it just an "off" day? Whatever the reason, I was left feeling quite disappointed with the experience. The staff are friendly and welcoming and although one of the orders we made had to be done three different times as the staff got it wrong each time, that is not my issue... More

First time visit after driving by it many times. Terrific. Quaint atmosphere in a restored older home. Big portions, very tasty food. Looking forward to going back, perhaps for lunch next time.

A beautiful and unique setting with lovely artwork. The food was delicious and well displayed. The French toast was out of this world! Only complaint would be the coffee - make it stronger!

You must try the Ultimate Latke platter. Two delicious sweet potato latkes with applesauce and sour cream surrounded by lots of other good breakfast food and fruit. We love the patio in summer because 1) the patio is so pretty and 2) because the college students are gone for the summer. If you're vegetarian, you're sure to find something to... More
