“Pity the Fool(ish) who don't go here”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We had heard about Foolish Craig's from Guy of Triple D on Food Network, so we were expecting a lot... and did this little place deliver! It was so good we went back for breakfast twice in 5 days and a 3rd time just for mimosas! It's all good. Crepes like our French Canadian Grandma used to make, eggs benedict with spinach and tomato, whole wheat french with strawberry syrup, and the mimosas with just enough orange juice to color the champagne. Reasonable prices, friendly, funky urban vibe and great food.

“Great food but not super clean”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

After a fun day at the Pearl Street Mall we ate here for a late lunch. Even at 3 pm it was hopping. The service was friendly and quick and the food was tasty. They were already out of the bread of the day. The menus were filthy and the bathroom wasn't much better. We ignored it and stayed and enjoyed our meal. Funky decor with led zeppelin blasting. Enjoy!

“Yummy yummy!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

This is a cute and quaint little place.
We shared a crepe and a BLT sandwich. They were both amazing and a very generous portion.

“Tasty Brunch in Boulder”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

We stopped in on a Sunday for brunch after driving to Colorado the day before to visit my brother's family. I was the only one who hadn't been here. So, as a first timer I had to order a crepe selection and went for, what else, The Foolish Craig! It really hit the spot. We all enjoyed our food. Also enjoyed some O'Dell's 90 Schilling on tap. The waiter was great, as my lovely wife had a lot of questions to stay gluten-free, which he handled in a totally smooth manner. It was crowded and we had to wait a bit for a booth, but that is to be expected in a small spot like this.

“Lived Up to the Hype!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

We were passing through Boulder on our way to Estes Park, and wanted something unique and tasty. We picked Foolish Craig's because it was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, and we always try to hit those places when we are near. Well this placed lived up to Food Network standards!

It's a small sidewalk restaurant in a college town, with a really cool atmosphere and surroundings. The hostess sat us down quickly and our server was very informative and patient as we looked over the huge menu. I had a cup of the chicken curry soup, which was outstanding! My wife ordered a crepe, stuffed with chicken, cheese, spinach, and other goodies. She said it was very good. I ordered a bacon cheese burger, because it claimed to be the best in town. It was! Excellent taste and quantity.

The service at Foolish Craig's was great and we enjoyed walking around outside on Pearl St. afterwards. We will definitely return when we drive through Boulder again.
