Waking Up Hungry

The Best Boulder Breakfast 2013

Its easy to accomplish in Boulder.   Waking up hungry and wanting the best Boulder breakfast out there.  So where do you start?  I’m a breakfast fanatic.  It helps that my wife loves breakfast.  My little sister remembers me making pancakes on Saturday mornings while watching cartoons.  Our household collects coffee cups. In other words, I think I am qualified to talk about the BEST Boulder breakfast!

What ISN’T In The Best Breakfast List

Star Kitchen.  Not anywhere near Boulder, so doesn’t make the list. But I will say – if you like Dim Sum, this is the spot to find in Southwest Denver.    Would be one of my Top 10 Picks for breakfast if it were anywhere near Boulder!  Check out Star Kitchen here.

Breakfast of Champions

  • Lucille’s – granddaddy, or should I say – Great Grand Mother  of breakfast joints in Boulder.  Southern comfort meets sweet and lovely. A match made in Deep South heaven.   Read my blog here.

    Fluffy pancakes, whipped butter and pure maple syrup. The Best Boulder Breakfast !

    Snooze – an import from Denver, this hotspot is known for a long wait and phenomenal pancakes.  Comfort food with an update. Try Juan’s Breakfast Taco’s or share The Pancake of The Day.  Enjoy a detailed blog post here.

  • Le Peep – This breakfast spot is super popular.  Located next door to McGuckin Hardware, so convenient for getting home improvement project off the ground – or at least mapping it on your place mat.
  • Turley’s Kitchen – start with a shot of wheat grass, enjoy healthy food or go all out with something sweet. Turley’s really gives back to the community as well, being the main sponsor of the annual Turkey Trot to raise funds for Boulder County Food Bank.  See 2013 post here.
  • The Chautauqua House – a great spot to enjoy a wonderful breakfast, before or after your hike.
  • Poppy Cafe is a fun spot. Nestled in The Lofts At The Peloton, this stylish spot offers good food in a comfortable joint.

By the way, I’m not saying the first place is the the #1 best Boulder breakfast and the last spot is tenth.  You will have to decide what your favorite Boulder breakfast is.

And for for some tribes, breakfast is a cup of Joe on the run to hiking biking skiing.   If your clan is seeking great food without actually getting into Boulder, you are in luck.  Louisville has some excellent eats as well.

  • Huckleberry is Top 10 Favorite for the best Boulder breakfast even if it is in Louisville.  Bakery check.  Great comfort food Double Check.  Bear (my son) recommends the Chicken Fried Steak and Gravy.
  • Porch Deli – eggs-cellent breakfast sammies!  I’m a recent big fan of this little deli.
  • Bob’s – not me, b.o.b.s. in Louisville.  Good food.  Deli counter vibe. Service can be a trifle slow while portions tend to be heaping big!  See the post here.

Where do you think the best Boulder breakfast is found? Are you an espresso hound? Eggs and bacon fan? Or is breakfast about baked goods and maple syrup.  Speaking of espresso and coffee beans, I have posts here, here and here on Boulder coffee.
