Went there because of DDD. As usual the food was very good. We had the caramel crepe and the blt. Both were very good. Would definitely recommend this place

We were looking for a place to eat lunch and found Foolish Craigs...good reviews...on the mall downtown. It was great. Felt like we were in Boulder. I had the Guacamole BLT and it was delicious. Everything looked good.

This is my favorite breakfast spot in Boulder. It's local, Not A Chain! The staff is awesome and service is very good. I love the local feel of Foolish Craigs. I've always had good food and drinks here. The owners are very cool and friendly. They have a great happy hour too. Love Foolish Craigs!

We had a large group eating upstairs- they forgot to take our order and weren't very visible to ask questions. When the other 2 tables got their food we were able to flag down a server to take our order. While the service wasn't the best-- the food was excellent ! Very creative menu and accommodating to all types of... More

The atmosphere was very fun with vibrant paintings on the walls. The food was excellent and the quantity was huge.

I recently had a l.o.n.g lunch at Foolish Craig's. Service is NOT high on the agenda for Foolish Craig. We got a table very quickly, but then waited and waited and WAITED for a server who, when he finally arrived, looked really tired and spacey. Either he needed a break or he had had too many breaks! The BLT was... More

We had originally planned to go to Snooze which was next door and was told that there was an hour wait so we went next door to Craigs and were able to get in right away. We were not disappointed. We started the meal with bloody marys. These were great. They have a wide selection of great food. I had... More

Stopped in for lunch...got seated immediately. My husband's order got slightly messed up but our waiter, Noah, and the manager comped him and brought him a new sandwich. Our meals were huge and delicious...very friendly staff, amazing homemade bread.

We had a 7 hour layover at Denver and decided to run over to Boulder for something to do. We found Foolish Craig's by chance and wandered in. The fact that it was packed at 2PM on a Saturday was a clue as to how good the food was here. We not only had a great meal but you could... More

Planned on going somewhere else but there was a line a mile long so we stumbled upon this place and had the best breakfast! The portions are enormous (crepes as big as a football!), food is amazing, and staff are super friendly. Very cool place, would go again!

Thank Jen W
