Foolish Craig's seems to be a super popular place--it was busy, but we were seated quickly, and the service was fine and friendly. I tried the Guacamole BLT, and it was great. Their hearty home made bread is delicious!

I'm a sucker for Eggs Benedict, though it's a difficult dish to find in the city I live in. I was very pleased with the dish at Foolish Craig's. I was initially drawn to it, because it was featured on Diner's, Drive-ins, and Dives, and it did not disappoint. The service was great. The food was reasonably priced for the... More

This is a GREAT place. First stop was for drinks on sunny February afternoon. Sitting outside is great people watching and the beer selection and cocktails are top notch. Second stop was breakfast. Biscuits with sausage and gravy was good - not enough spice for me but easily remedied with some pepper. The place is known for crepes and there... More

My boyfriend and I recently visited Boulder for the first time. For Sunday brunch, we had planned to go to Snooze, but we arrived there to find a 50 minute wait. Instead, we decided to take a short walk down the block to Foolish Craig's, and I'm so glad that we did. We were seated immediately and provided with excellent... More

We were there over Christmas and it was crowded and a little slow but the food arrived hot and delicious. I had a cranberry chicken salad sandwich on the special bread of the day which was an oatmeal stout and it was very good. The bread was fantastic. Our table also had the Blue Cheese Bison burger which was reported... More

This place has a home feel too it, however, it is very loud. They have loud music playing, which in turn makes the customers talk even louder. However, this will not stop us from going back, because their breakfast was very good. They have many options for the gluten free customer. They have GF crepes, which we did not try... More

Part of our reason for spending a weekend in Boulder is to eat at Foolish Craig's. Everything we've had from FC is delicious, and the decor is so entertaining and colorful it's worth the wait.

Four times out of five we go to Foolish Craig's for breakfast. It has a great organic, hippie vibe, terrific breakfast selections, and a very friendly wait-staff. I have had several of their omelets, benedicts, French toast and breakfast sandwiches. All are made to order, very generous in size, and delicious! Coffee is unlimited and very good, and the offerings... More
