    Huge portions, 99 cent mimosas, amazing dirty chai with soy milk. Get saddleback if you like sweet savory mix. This is the place for a hearty breakfast.

    The food was good though the address on Foursquare is completely wrong and that ruined breakfast as we had to wander around trying to find a slightly above average place to eat. Meh.

    Chai Latte was excellent, Chicken & French Toast was amazing. Must have breakfast while in Boulder. Be prepared to wait a bit, but so worth it.
