Three words: Best. Breakfast. Ever. AND they serve drinks in giant mason jars! Need I say more? No, but I'm going to. On Sundays they have $1 mimosas at the tables, and though their menu is one of the biggest I've ever seen, literally everything is good. Last time, we ordered all sides just so we could try a bit of everything. The corned beef hash comes highly recommended. The service is also stellar, and the atmosphere at the new location is somehow laid back and sophisticated at the same time. It makes a huge difference that this is a family-owned restaurant.

The food was good, slightly more expensive than average, and the portion size was great. The service was also good. I ordered their breakfast taco plate, which comes with either flour or corn tortillas. We did have big issues with the kitchen. My wife ordered eggs cooked so that the whites were cooked and the yolks slightly cooked, not an uncommon way to order eggs. When they came out, you could clearly see they were under-cooked. So, the kitchen wasn't really paying much attention to whether their food matched the order. When she sent them back, they came out in 2 minutes cooked like leather. It's not hard to imagine the scenario. Cooks are busy, shovelling food as fast as they can, and someone sends their order back. So they fry the crap out of it and send it out, again without checking the order to verify how it's supposed to be cooked. I ordered corn tortillas with mine and requested that they cook them longer than usual so they were a little crispier. Again, the order came out cooked the way it's usually cooked instead of the way I ordered it. I talked to the manager, who took both orders back to get them cooked correctly. However, mine came back the same way it was originally delivered. When I asked him why they didn't cook the tortillas a little longer, he politely explained to me how complicated it would be for the cooks to fry those tortillas a little longer than usual. It was a lame and implausible explanation but the message was clear, "you get your order the way we say you're going to get it and even trivial deviations are not allowed". To their credit, they comp'd both of our orders but we left there with the impression that they were being needlessly intransigent about how you can order their food. It's hard to remember when I was last in a restaurant that refused to do such a simple thing. But, that tells you something about how far they are willing to go to satisfy their customers, which is not very far.

Love this place! One of the best places to go in Boulder for breakfast or brunch. If you go on a weekend expect some wait time (30min) because they are always packed on weekends. It is a locally owned place and the husband and wife owners are supper nice. For example I showed up once about 10 min before they closed so they couldn't seat me and the owner gave me and all my friends (5 of us) coupons for 50% off our next meal that never expire.
