Awesome breakfast

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

Big City makes THE best Mexican Mochas in town. Their breakfasts are fantastic, but allow time - judging from the crowd others agree!

I will begin with the positive. The bagel breakfast sandwich was good. The coffee was good the service not so fast and the tables needed cleaned. I don't know how a place that serves food expects all of its customers to clear and wipe down the table after they are finished. Maybe it's a new thing but I doubt that... More

I moved from Boise to Eugene last year but everytime I'm home I have breakfast, coffee and dessert at Big City! To be honest- the portions are really big so dessert is usually to go! I love you Big City! Never Change!

Great pastries and Bfast. Yummy treats and deserts. Great granola. Massive portions! Awesome coffee. Easy going atmosphere. Make sure you grab a bag of Big (s2#!*^*) coffee beans to support breast cancer fund and enjoy at home.

I love stopping for a bite to eat at Big City Coffee when I'm in Boise. The food is wonderful, staff is competent and friendly, and the atmosphere is warm. The ingredients they use are top notch and I've never seen anything like frozen fruit. Only fresh and tasty. It's definitely a busy place, but I take that as a... More

This is a great restaurant/cafe that is based in the heart of the Linen District of Boise (west side of downtown). The sandwiches are big, the muffins are big and the coffee or hot chocolates are big. The folks behind the counter are nice and friendly and efficient. There is no rush to shift you out the door and during... More

Big City Coffee is one of my favorite places for coffee, breakfast and people watching. The decor is vintage divine and the food is fresh, home cooked and more than enough. Make sure you bring someone to share with. I love the waffles with blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries and fresh whipped cream. This is eclectic and very popular with... More
