The History of Boulder Restaurants, Bars, Coffee Shops, and Markets with Ready-to-Eat Grub


How many times have you racked your brain trying to think of a restaurant you visited in high school or a bar you frequented in college when you lived in Boulder, Colorado?

Hopefully, this list will help you answer those questions.

It's a work in progress and a social effort. At the bottom of Menu of Restaurants page, is a list of "Unknowns" that I could use your help with. If you have any more information or corrections to share, please send an email to bouldergourmet at aol dot com. I will update the list and repost revisions as I have time.

Lots of thanks goes to the I was in Boulder, CO in the '70s Facebook group who helped fill in lots of the blanks. And, thank you to Karen E. who has gone to the Carnegie Library numerous times to get valuable information. Of course, much thanks to John Lehndorff, food writer extraordinaire, who inspired me to ask such questions and for being my touchstone to the restaurant world all these years. (Check out John's article about Boulder's food history, "Forty Years of Nibbling"). Mangia!
