Great casual breakfast / lunch. Prices were good food was good. Clearly peopled by hippies but, that's ok. Tiny cupcakes even came with the check. Really enjoyed the whole vibe.

Upon arriving we were greeted by either a waitress or a hostess by her looking at us and acting frantically, as if she didn't know why we were there. We asked for a seat and she kind of just looked at us weirdly, then had another person seat us. Other than the awkward greeting, the food was great and so... More

This is a great spot with a fun friendly vibe. The menu is very extensive so everyone can find many choices to please them. We will be back, it was hard to decide what to eat.

Once the Walnut South moved into the South end of Boulder, the shopping area became revitalized! With south facing garage doors, outdoor seating (for those occasional warm winter days and the other 9 months of the year), amazing breakfast and lunch, and fun, friendly staff and patrons, you can't go wrong and it is worth the wait on weekend mornings....

I joined coworkers here for lunch last week after a morning team bonding hike. I am always impressed by the stellar service and delicious food at this place, so when we were looking for something easy after hiking I immediately recommend it. Once again, they exceeded everyone's expectations. I had the turkey burger with apple slices on the side and... More

For Omelets, Pancakes, etc., this is a great spot. All ingredients are fresh. They accommodate food allergies and preferences with gluten free and vegetarian items, along with almond and soy products. Service is very pleasant and food arrives quickly. Even though there does not appear to be any soundproofing, the noise level is not high. One can eat outside. Various... More

Stopped in for a little breakfast after my support early flight. I opted for a simple two egg breakfast and a latte. Coffee was good, and the eggs were cooked perfectly. I liked being able to choose two sides. The place was really busy, but the service was still excellent.

This is our go to place for breakfast. Lots of choices, standard and boulder friendly food. They are quite proud of their breakfast potatoes, but I would love to have hah browns as a choice. Can't go wrong here AND the wait is tolerable.

It doesn't matter what you order--the food is always good and fresh. The huevos rancheros are so yummy, and the home made breads are amazing. Pancakes are huge, bacon is crunchy. Coffee is great. Service is prompt and efficient. Fun to see what local artist is being featured on the walls. Cool joint.

Good food, good prices, terrible espresso. Great with kids, our kid had a meltdown and they were like "hey they're pouring concrete outside." Moved to outside table, kid loved watching the big concrete mixer and the guys working it. Overall great experience.
