Today we finally got the chance to visit Boulder Cafe. There’s been many times that I’ve driven past this Cafe and always wondered what it was really like. Many people have told me that it was very nice inside and the coffee was excellent. Whenever I hear people brag about a place it really sparks my interest and I have to finally go investigate for myself.

That day was today and we were so glad we did. As soon as we entered Boulder Cafe we could tell it was not like the ordinary coffee shops we’ve visited before. It had a funky grungy look to it with an interested atmosphere. In no way was this a bad thing and in fact it only made us like the shop even more.

Boulder Cafe has great staff

First I’d like to say that the coffee was fresh and didn’t sit on the burner for hours causing it to turn to mud. This was very important to us because it says that they take some pride in brewing their coffee and care about the customer being satisfied. Also the staff was very friendly and gave great customer service. Our coffees were served in a timely fashion and they made sure that whatever condiments that we needed were readily available. And any questions that we had about the menu or the place itself was answered politely without being rushed in order to get rid of us.

Boulder Cafe has a cool relaxed atmosphere

As we headed towards the sitting area the place was very inviting. The layout of the cafe made it easy to find a great table to sit at and the noise level was very comfortabl to deal with. Usually when we go to restaurants and cafes the crowd there is so noisy you can hardly hold a decent conversation without yelling. Instead everybody had a very relaxed attitude with many working on projects of some sort on their laptops.

Looking around the place we noticed some very interesting objects. The art work on the walls had a comic type look to it, and the furniture had a down to earth old fashioned look that made it the kind of place that you felt like you could really hang out at for hours. As we nibbled on Cheesy Eddie carrot cake and muffins the real pleasure was looking at all the old fashioned telelvisons piles up all over the place along with the vintage radio that was sitting almost directly behind me. I couldn’t help but wonder if any of this stuff still worked as it reminded me of an old television that I use to watch cartoons on when I was a kid. The whole atmosphere just had a funky cool vibe to it including the music playing in the background.

Boulder Cafe seems to really know the market they are catering to because the whole time we were there customers were constantly coming and going with most of them staying twenty minutes or more. People seemed to love this place and I can really see why. The staff are very friendly and they seem to care about the customers that they serve. We didn’t have to go back up and complain about the coffee being stale and causing us to request other cups. And the menu seemed to have some great sandwiches to choose from including some salads and soups of the day.

Boulder Cafe has a clean environment

Even though the place had a funky grunge vibe to it, the tables or floors didn’t look dirty or neglected. I can understand having a little bit of salt and dirt on the tables seeing that they seemed to constantly be busy, but if everything is terribly dirty for no reason that’s unacceptable. In this aspect Boulder Cafe passed the cleanliness test and we agreed it’s a cafe we’d go back to.

Sometimes we like to go to places to have a cup of coffee and a bite to eat that none of our family and friends know about just to get away and not have anybody able to find us. It’s not to be mean or anti-sociable but just a way for us to unwind and get away from all the hassles that life can sometimes throw at you. In fact, maybe one day I’ll go there to work on one of these amazing articles that I love to write in order tell you all about these amazing places. Now Boulder Cafe is on the list of places we’d like to go back to.
