I don’t live in Boulder, Colorado. I live 3000 feet above it in a tiny mountain town. But Boulder is my home base and there is a lot to love about that small city nestled at the foot of the glorious Colorado Rockies. I cut my food blogging teeth on this hip and charming town. Boulder has amazing food, very good people, and wonderful small businesses. I am decidedly biased when it comes to Boulder, after all – we moved here for quality of life and we have it in spades. Here are some of my posts on Boulder area businesses (mostly food-related) that I love and hope you’ll love too.
Asian Seafood Market – my local Asian market.
L’Atelier – a favorite restaurant on Pearl Street’s east end.
Atlas Purveyors – best tea and coffee shop on the downtown scene. [Atlas closed in 2013. We are sad.]
Best Dining Deals in Boulder – some of my favorite eats at a bargain price.
Boxcar Coffee Roasters – yet another fantastic coffee shop (also, excellent coffee beans).
Brasserie 1010 – French bistro dining and a favorite happy hour haunt.
