Foolish Craig’s has been going strong since 1998 and has become a Boulder favorite.

At the time of its opening, co-owner Craig Moelis noticed that there weren't too many places making crêpes in town. He combined this with their award-winning bread to create a winning formula.

Their menu has some great breakfast classics, but what makes them truly special is their incredible selection of crêpes.

Their sweet crêpes are fantastic. The Blintz chock is full of strawberry compote, cream cheese, and whipped cream. They’ve also got a Hot Strawberry & Nutella Crêpe adds a chocolate and cinnamon twist as well.

On the other hand, their savory crêpes are to die for. The Breast O’ Pesto combines chicken breast, pesto, onion, sun-dried tomatoes, and cheddar for a truly special crêpe. Another favorite is the classic Foolish Craig (Yum Bacon), which combines bacon, mushrooms, onions, roasted red peppers, and house potatoes topped off with eggs and salsa.

Finally, they have a Butter Rum Caramel Crêpe Cake, which is a favorite of Guy Fieri and was featured on Triple D.
