Breakfast Spot

“My favorite breakfast place in town. Typically they have a significant wait, so I like to get my name in and walk around the Pearl Street Mall. This is a good option if you are not in a rush. My favorite is the Eggs Benedict, but it is all delicious.”

“On Sunday mornings from 10am to noon in the spring, summer and fall, Spruce Confections' charming courtyard on West Pearl Street is filled with the sounds of gypsy jazz. Order a freshly baked croissant and a latte and join the live band on the patio to feel as if you've been transported to Paris. ”

“As close to the NYC variety as I have ever found west of the Hudson. If you want something different from Beleza Coffee two doors to the left or Breadworks, two doors to the right, Moe's might just be the perfect quick breakfast for your active day in Boulder”

“Cafeteria style service. Excellent value. Great for a quick mess of fluffy eggs scrambled with chunks of veggies ($5). Also super for a bowl of house-made soup and wonderful fresh bread (also about $5). Made to order salad bar and copious bakery goods also available. Usually 7am to 7pm, but different on holidays. Outdoor seating with views to foothills.”
