Best Breakfast in Boise

Big City is the best breakfast in Boise no question!!! It can get very busy so earlier on weekends or weekdays is when it will be quieter!

Wow! If you're anywhere near Big City Coffee you owe it to yourself to stop for a cuppa, and something HUGE! [The name is very much tongue-in-cheek. The decor is early American farmhouse, nicely done.] The coffee is fantastic, with beans for sale. Scones the size of dinner plates, muffins that are small cakes, all reasonably priced. I sat down...

I just finished a BBC bagel at the Boise Airport's Big City Coffee, and I just want to say that it was one of the best breakfast sandwiches I've ever had, airport or not. The eggs were fluffy, the bacon crispy and not greasy, the cheese nice and melty, and the bagel itself toasted to perfection. The price was reasonable,... More

Plenty of room to take care of seating 6 people. Coffee was flowing, and the amount of food they serve for breakfast will feed 2 people. Food is excellent.

Big City Coffee is a terrific breakfast/lunch spot in Boise! The decor is fun and quirky, the service friendly and speedy, and many of the breakfast items easily serve 2 people. I had quiche with fruit on the side and my husband ordered the waffles with fruit and (of course!) whipped cream with scrambled eggs on the side. My quiche... More

What a great place for breakfast! Not only do you get incredible FRESH food, but also a chance to mix with a variety of patrons! They have community tables (as well as small group tables) which gives you a chance to chat with the "locals." From the eclectic decor to the most friendly staff and generous portions, you will find... More

Great flavored fresh coffee. They do a great job on their delicious baked goods. Not very friendly. But delicious enough to go back anyways.

I love the smothered potatoes. Great meal. The atmosphere is wonderful, bustling yet you work. The crew is friendly. The menu has many choices and the fresh pastries are always tempting.

This place may be well known to some but I made my first visit to meet someone there on February 16th and I was quite impressed. They market themselves as a local coffee place but with a diverse breakfast and lunch menu. I enjoyed my breakfast and coffee very much. The portions were large. The ingredients were fresh. The service... More
