The mushroom and ricotta danish I got here was the best pastry I had in Boulder by far. So much delicious mushroom flavor. The coffee is also excellent, and it is delightful that there are multiple coffees to choose from. There's also plenty of seating, but there doesn't seem to be outlet access so it's not great for sitting and working the day away. Still probably my favorite coffee shop in Boulder.
Update - I'm tired of driving all the way here to find they're 100% out of single origin beans. Wasted way too much time trying to be a customer. Somewhere near half the time they're out. So not 5 stars. Love that I can usually walk in and pick up some beans that were roasted within a few days of when I am buying them. Staff is really friendly. I'll always note queer-friendly businesses and this is one of them. To the coffee roasting people here: It would be great if there were more processes available at any given time. When I'm in, usually every bean but one is washed. Would like more natural and honey options. Thank you!
My introduction to boxcar was actually through their coffee beans. After loving their beans I went to the actual coffee shop for the first time. I ordered the cardamom rose latte and a spinach fetta croissant. The latte was hands down one of the best I have ever had. The flavors were phenomenal. You could taste each flavor without it overpowering the delicious coffee. Perfect balance of cream and sweetness. The croissant was also delicious. My husband ordered the pistachio and rose croissant and it was very good. I'm sad that I live 45 minutes away because I would go to this place all the time if I could.
The best around. Beans are high quality, fresh roasted, and baristas are pros. Pastries and treats are also incredible, if they don't sell out! Boxcar is my top choice for coffee in Colorado.
The coffee is pretty good, their seasonal drinks are tasty. The pastries were delicious! The everything spice ricotta croissant was one of the yummiest things I’ve had in a long time. The anise cookie unfortunately didn’t taste like anise, but had a perfect texture, it was light and crispy. Usually, cafes either do pastries good or coffee good, but this place does them both very well. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
