Fresh food, very reasonable prices and great service! We were 10 adults and one kid. The wait was longer, but they got all the orders perfectly and everything came at the same time. Nobody had any complaints, and not one bad bite. The sunrise sandwich was exceptional and other favorites would include banana walnut waffles, the coffee cake and blueberry... More

Went with friends around 12:30, one friend has significant dietary limitations, which these folks easily met. We mostly had breakfast style meals, which were about as expected. The potatoes, either as a side, or a separate dish, are most enjoyable.

Boulder has always had great breakfast spots. This place was recommended to us and we went yesterday. It was terrible. Raw bread, chicken salad was a tragic pasty mess that seemed like it was made in a blender, unimaginative Huevos Rancheros. Skip this place. Not worth it.

I always enjoy a restaurant that offers many choices and enough food for leftovers. The server was friendly and generous in substitution offerings. I ordered the "Blue Plate Special" and extra vegetables instead of the pancakes. It was all delicious and I will be back!

LOVE the Walnut, we always get a great breakfast here! I think they have the best gluten free blueberry pancakes in the world, ok at least from what I have tried.

You can tell from the moment you walk in this cafe is locally owned, with an emphasis on customer service and great food. The menu is GREAT for vegetarians, as well as bacon-lovers! I highly recommend the Eggs Marcos: scrambled eggs with bacon, cream cheese and melted cheddar, served with two sides. And they offer a wide range of homemade... More

Met by friendly, efficient staff with an eagerness to serve tasty food with many options. Great place for a fun breakfast for all ages where you can sit indoors or outdoors on the sidewalk. Fabulous desserts, too, like the butterscotch cream pie.

Whatever breakfast you want, they have it here. Excellent choices, service and the food was super tasty. It's a strange location in a strip mall, but it was packed, even on a Sunday morning when all the shops were still closed. Great place if you want a big breakfast served with a smile.
