A cheap breakfast spot. More diner quality food, but they have toys for kids, and you can eat here cheap as a family. Also, popular with locals and families and college kids so get here early. Many entrees come with 2 sides such as french toast or pancakes as your sides, making it cheap to feed a family.

GREAT happy hour. This is a small local place that's been around forever, but it's tiny, so it fills up fast. If going for happy hour, get there by 4pm or expect to wait. Gets crowded so not kid friendly. Probably some of the best seafood in Boulder

If you just need a general grocery store, this is the best one and just a 5 minute drive away. There are others such as Safeway near us, but King Soopers has everything, including decent organic produce and prices are better than Whole Foods
