Very disapointed

We were so looking forward to eating here. I wanted to love this place, but then we went there. We went on a Tuesday late am. Well it was full, so we waited. No signs or organization for seating of any type. Asked two tables if they had room, both said that they were waiting for people. One guy... read more

From their coffee, chai to their sandwiches, egg dishes and crazy oversized sweets, this place is delish! You can't go wrong with anything...definitely the best brekkie in Boise!

Fantastic scones, bars, cookies, cinnamon rolls, muffins, and homemade granola. No doughnuts/pastries, but a sweet tooth is easily satisfied! Large portions of updated/fresh 'home style' menu items for breakfast and lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed my smaller portion egg scramble with avocado, bacon, and salsa! We visited twice in three days, and picked up goodies at the airport to take home for... More

I've eaten here twice now and both times it was fantastic. Great atmosphere, the portions are huge and the food is excellent. My only gripe is they use styrofoam to go boxes

I love Big City. It has such a great eclectic vibe. Country farm-to-table meets a bohemian and cozy vibe. Water is served in mason jars and all entrees are served with a huge portion of fruit. You can't go wrong with breakfast or lunch. And they know how to make a mean cappuccino. Don't forget to get a scone the... More

A local recommended this place. It's easy to find and a fun atmosphere. Husband said his coffee was excellent and you must try one of their sinful goodies! Only bummer, they don't make blended drinks.
