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.

By far one of our favorite coffee shops ever visited! Decor is really cool - old farm house feel. Several brewer coffees to choose from. The food menu was very impressive! Food was delicious and served hot! Beware the portions are huge!!!! If you like biscuits and gravy it is a must try for you!!!

I had lunch here while waiting for a delayed flight. The food services at the airport have changed and I was very pleasantly surprised to have a nice choice for lunch. I had a Mexican mocha and vegetable quiche both of which were good. Overall this is a great upgrade for the airport as great coffee, good food, and nice... More

The only negative I have about this place is there are not enough tables. I'm sure the reason is because they are so popular they have just outgrown the building. There food is absolutely wonderful and their coffee is too. They also donate a portion of their proceeds to breast cancer research. Just one more reason I love this place!

My sister-in-law had been telling me about Big City Coffee and I was excited to try it. She loves their coffee and my hot chocolate was great, but neither was as good as the lemon raspberry scone that was seriously bigger than my head. The Oreo brownie was fantastic too! I'm looking forward to going back for breakfast, but only... More

If you can find a seat, this is a place to eat BIG and good portions with good old fashioned choices: bacon, omlettes, quiches, taters, etc. Very informal, sort of noisy but worth it if you're hungry. Yum.

This is a must see place for a Boise visitor! I love it there and go every time I am in the city. I would definitely recommended getting there early on the weekends, we arrived at 10am and had to sit outside, which was lovely! They have a ton of options for different diet preferences and restrictions. My boyfriend is... More

Great little local joint in downtown Boise. Stand in line to order. Find a table and wait for one of the best breakfasts I have had in a very long time. The oatmeal was excellent, the Spanish egg dish very, very good. Only had one complaint from my crew who said that the fruit tasted like soap. You might want... More
