“I see why there was a line at Snooze”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I guess Boulder gets up late since we were having trouble finding a breakfast spot before 9 am on a recent Saturday. Snooze looked like an option, so we headed there. Apparently it's very popular since there was a line - and we don't do lines for breakfast. Instead, we went next door to Foolish Craig's. The menu was impressive, and started off good with a lovely, aromatic Earl Grey tea served in a teapot. Unfortunately, my 'over easy' eggs were overcooked, as were my husband's scrambled eggs. Not good at a breakfast spot! The homemade corned beef was delicious, though, so not a total loss. And crepes are a specialty - might have been a better choice.

“Best coffee in Boulder!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I'm super picky about my coffee, especially at breakfast. Foolish Craig's coffee was amazing! So much better than other Pearl St breakfast places we tried. I had the french toast -- yummy -- and many cups of coffee. FC's was beyond busy at 11 AM on a Saturday, but service was perfect -- friendly and attentive. Our group of three did not feel rushed at all. The atmosphere here was fun -- great artwork, too. Looking forward to my next visit. FC's is just about everything I'd want in a breakfast place.

“Try the Ellie's Brown Ale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

It's a local beer (Avery) served at Foolish Craig's. They have pretty good food too, you can get all vegetarian as well.

“Great place for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

I went twice because I liked it very much the first time. Good quality typical American breakfast with a twist, fast and friendly service. If you are looking for an individual place that is not a chain Foolish Craig's is the place to go..

“Slight disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

For this being on DDD, I was a little disappointed. I had the Guacamole BLT and it tasted like just that. Nothing really special in my opinion. I also tasted the Hummus Cucumber sandwich and their hummus has a very mustard taste. It wasn't bad but I definitely wouldn't want to have the whole sandwich of it. The place was very small and not much room for anyone to really move around. The service was OK.
