“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

From the service to the food, this place rocks! Found my new favorite breakfast joint! It was super busy but we still felt at home and well taken care of.

“Best breakfast in Boise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

They have the best quiche, muffins, and chai tea lattes! There is nothing on the menu that isn't amazing. The only thing is, come hungry! OR, share with a friend, as you will not be able to finish. Enjoy!

“Awesome! Must go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Incredible pastry selection, huge breakfasts, funky style. Must try this place at least once. Pretty industrial building, community tables and plenty of newspapers hanging around to grab. The pastries are really the highlight. My husband got the biscuits and gravy and holy cow, it was enough for three people. Will definitely go back.

“Best breakfast in Boise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Downtown in Boise's Linen District, Big City Coffee is the best breakfast place in Boise. The casual yet funky setting is perfect whether you're there on your way back from a hike or on the way to the Saturday Market. They are well known for yummy fresh pastries. The $9 "Farmer Girl" breakfast consists of scrambled eggs with cheese, vegetables, fruit and whole wheat toast . The water is served in mason jars. Many times you share a table with complete strangers. Outside seating available - picnic tables.

“Awesome Wake-up Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Great breakfast, great coffee, and outstanding music (especially if you like the down-home, traditional country--eating breakfast and listening to Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn duet is just hard to beat). And the food--I'm serious folks, I've never had a better quiche anywhere, and their baked goods are to die for. Dang, this place is a little jewel!
