Great food and coffee! Huge servings. Very friendly, warm atmosphere. South side of restaurant is an overhead door. Warm season it is opened and restaurant spills out to sidewalk. Student and young worker crowd.

We just stopped by for pastry but all the meals being served looked delicious and big. We purchased a variety of goodies from the pastry case and were not disappointed with any of them. It’s a stop worth making next time we visit Boise.

Went to Big City Coffee for breakfast and coffee. Their portions are fantastic, the value was good, and the coffee was delicious. I'm only visiting for a week and usually try to not eat at the same place twice, but may go back here before...More

Food was decent, nothing to rave about. Interior was nice-rustic/modern feel with the street facing wall dominated by a roll up door which allowed indoor/outdoor eating options. But the wide opening provided one flaw, it let in all the flies. There were several flies landing...More
