I stopped here on my way to Oregon. The interior is PERFECTION. It is so fun and colorful, rustic yet modern, and most importantly the perfect combination of noisy and quiet. The staff are very helpful and make excellent suggestions. The portions are enormous. Even the baked goods are enormous. If you're solo like me, plan to take half with... More

Love love love the food, coffee and atmosphere! Great homemade food and goodies. Usually very busy. Interesting people watching too. Wish the coffee names weren't chest related though. Still am Thrilled to have them in the BOI airport - thank you for real coffee in the airport!

Great choices for breakfast---muffins, breads, eggs, bacon, sausage. Much more. Servings are huge. Atmosphere-sights, smells- is top notch. I don't drink coffee, but still love the place! Downtown location. Wine tasting next door. Service is great- line moves quickly. Been several times, no disappointments.

One stands in line to place their order. Of course, this exposes one to the bakery case with scads of temptations are displayed in all their glory. Whether you order a custom egg dish, have a fantastic cinnamon roll, or just enjoy the great coffee, you will be a pleased patron of this establishment!

A small little shop that was very busy. Breakfast is served all the time. You order at the counter then find a table and a waitress brings your food to you. You better be hungry if you order a meal for yourself. 4 of us went in at 11:00am for breakfast and the place was hopping. Not one of us... More

and that reason is some of the largest scones, muffins and plates full of food you will ever see. Also big calories so don't confuse this with health food coffee shop. I like the atmosphere, the big display case and the staff constantly flying around taking orders and serving food with a smile. Get there early if you want a... More

Delicious, fresh breakfasts with a cozy vibe. Everything we've had is good--perfect way to start the day. Come early on weekends if you want to snag a seat. Love that there is also a small extension at the Boise airport for early morning flight days, too!
