“Wonderful Breakfast Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I visit the Walnut Cafe, or its sibling the Southside Walnut Cafe (at the Table Mesa Shopping Center), about once a month. Almost always busy, both the service and the food are good. One of my favorite dishes is a simple two eggs over easy with sides of fruit and blueberry cornbread. The coffee is just so-so, but refilled frequently. The restaurant can be noisy, especially the Southside Walnut Cafe, but is still a perfect place to meet a friend or colleague for an informal business meeting.

“Good cafe off the main tourist route”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Very good breakfast - went back the next day to pick up some slices of pie which are excellent. There are several choices on the breakfast menu And the coffee is good.

“Huge breakfast at the right price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

My husband and I stopped here on the recommendation of Yelp and we are glad we did. With many of the items you get to pick 2 "sides" but they are really more like additional breakfasts! I had the scramble with veggie sausage and mushrooms and cheese and then had pancakes and potatoes for my sides. I have to say the potatoes were not my favorite breakfast potatoes -- I might have had too high of hopes for them. A little too seasoned for my taste. The pancakes were fluffy and excellent. Huge breakfast at the right price with a lot of fun sides.

“Yummy Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

In the back corner of a shopping plaza area, we went here on a recommendation from our local hosts. It was yummy! Not amazing, but really good. Definitely good choices on the menu and was enjoyable. I would go back, if I had several days in Boulder again.
(I would definitely go back to Snooze for breakfast, as that was my absolute favorite)
