Snooze in Boulder

Just a quick note to say that my first visit to Snooze's new location in Boulder was a smashing success - definitely the best breakfast I've had at a restaurant in a while. They'll let you mix and match two benedicts, so I had one egg of prosciutto, talleggio and arugula benedict and one of caprese benedict (fresh mozz, heirloom tomato and basil pesto), both with cream-cheese hollandaise and a balsamic drizzle and both served on Udi's ciabatta. They were completely distinct - the caprese was fresh and bright, while the prosciutto/talleggio was rich and a bit funky (in a good way) - and both were perfectly cooked, with the yolk just runny enough without the white being at all raw or watery. The hash brown cake on the side was also excellent, though I'd personally like a higher crust-to-interior ratio (maybe two smaller cakes instead?). But the inside was well-seasoned and moist, not a dry potato crumble.

Coffee was hot and served in giant mugs, and was refilled regularly. Service was a little on the slow side but not bad, especially given how complex most of the dishes are for a breakfast place and how much they're willing to customize (mix and match pancakes and bennies, just about everything is available gluten free, etc.). We got there at 9am on Sunday and only waited about 10 minutes for a table, but the crowd outside when we left was huge.

Very excited to have such a great new breakfast option in town!
