Not THE most Vegan Friendly

Certainly has a few options, some need adjusting or a decent dialogue with the waiter to clarify vegan preference, but its do-able and a few provides choices which is always preferred.
Ended up going with the Beyond Burger and it’s pretty difficult to mess that up, as you would expect it was good. Would be awesome if they implemented a special vegan house sauce or something to make their Beyond Burger a little more “Foolish Craig’s” style. Even still just a classic Beyond Burger always makes me feel satisfied so I’m not complaining!

For me they lost the 4th star with the lesser options and the need for slight adjustments.

Good but not many options

This place is very vegetarian friendly, not as much vegan. There are a total of like 3 vegan options and one of them you have adjust. The tofu scramble was still good though.

many options

Many vegan options. You might have to get creative but our waiter was totally willing to sub egg for tofu and their veggie sausage.
Keep this in mind when you go, that way you will see how many options you really do have here.

Pros: many vegan options

Cons: no vegan pancakes or waffles

Great Brekky Spot

My fav spot to brunch in Boulder! So veg heavy and the ambiance is lively.

Ask for NO EGGS on your Tofu Scramble!

Yup, you have to ask for NO EGGS when ordering the Tofu Scramble. Weird, right? But it's pretty good so we come occasionally. It's served with Peanut Sauce which is pretty darn yummy. The only other options here are to ask to sub-out the eggs in the burrito and one other dish - i can't think of the name. My husbands scramble had ham pieces in it the last time we came, so that is a real turn off.

Pros: peanut sauce

Cons: meat found in food, have to ask for no eggs

heartiest vegan breakfast ever!

tofu scramble, ask for no cheese, more potatoes instead. a massive helping of delicious sauteed vegetetables, plenty of tofu ( not the miserable little square which is so sadly the hallmark of many tofu dishes ) and choice of 5 kinds of bread. Huge, impossible to finish, enough for two, zesty and tasty. edit: this place also has the friendliest staff, cozy hipster attitude and atmosphere.

After having eated vegan breakfasts coast to coast this is th e king!

Awesome tofu scram

Well known diner among Boulder locals. Even this place is not vegan, the tofu scram with peanut sauce, greens and potatoes is very tasty. Great meal for a brunch out.

Pros: good for breakfast or brunch

Cons: very limited vegan option, don't recommended for dinner

Super Cool Atmosphere and Lots of Veggies

I've been going to Foolish Craigs for years, they have a full bar, tables and booths and lots of cool local art on the walls. I order veggie burgers sans cheese, a tofu scramlette, soups and salads there. They keep hotsauce on the table too. For laid back Boulder style I'd say go and enjoy yourself.

Pros: nice vibe, more on the health food side, tasty!

Cons: they can get super busy, I wish they had a vegan cheeze option

Foolish Craigs

Foolish Craigs is one of those places you go to when dining with non-veg*ns - it's also more suitable for vegetarians rather than vegans. That said, I stuck with snack items such as chips and guacamole, hummus, etc. The guacamole was actually very good, but I found everything else to be average. My bf and friend really enjoyed their food items and even want to go back - going back is not on the top of my list however. Overall, FC's has a neat setup and they cater to vegetarians (not really vegans). So if your vegetarian and need to find middle-ground when it comes to dining, by all means try FC's. If you're vegan, I wouldn't bother.
