Breakfast on a Saturday morning and it was very busy. We waited for a long time for our food but it didn't disappoint. Large portions - enough to split and great coffee. Loved the menu. The staff seemed a little unorganized but other than that and the wait, we would go back.

When a coffee/breakfast place is busy that's a sure sign they have good coffee and/or food - we hit the jackpot on both! Lucky us - as we happened on this place while in Boise for a conference - thanks to TripAdvisor :)

I ordered the Low-Carb Egg Breakfast - sooooo good and SOOOOOO much - I am not sure how many eggs they used, but it was more than 3 and 1/2 an alacado - and the 'side of fruit' was more like a PLATE of FRESH fruit (pineapple, grapefruit, blueberries, strawberries, grapes, raspberries and clementine).

My husband ordered a side of eggs (which again was a generous portion) and a side of bacon (he figured it would be 3 or 4 pieces - there were 10 pieces) and we ordered the Fresh Berry Waffle to share (was incredibly good!!!!! and HUGE - piled high with Strawberries, blueberries and raspberries - and LOTS of real whip cream!)

We had WAY too much food for the 2 of us - but enjoyed every bite!

We enjoyed the brewed coffee with our breakfast - then I ordered a Black and White Mocha on our way out - THE BEST EVER!!!!

Full of positive energy, this place is full of locals and the buzz around the place is really good. I've been there when it's slow and when it's busy, and had great food and coffee during both--a good sign that the standards are high here.

Every time we go to Boise, we "must" stop at Big City to get a memorable scone, pastry, meal, or a bunch of day olds! The quaint set up (old signs, mason jar glasses, etc) makes this worthwhile even when the place is packed wall to wall!!!! if you go after 8am there is almost a guaranteed wait.

We arrived in Boise early for an appointment, as we strolled around we found this treasure. We only had time for coffee (strong and hot) and lived vicariously as others' food arrived around us. We definitely want to go back for breakfast before our next appointment. The atmosphere is great with interesting folk art pieces, customers and workers alike are happy, even when I mistakenly took the menu from the customer across the group table. She suggested we try the pumpkin chai muffin - we can't wait til the next time!
