Nice place, but a slow moving line. My two lattes were great. I also had the everything feta croissant which I thought was great but my daughter thought was very salty. I also had the muffin shaped frittata. It was also very nice. Overall a...More

While visiting Boulder, we happened upon this place. Very trendy! There are goodies for purchase in addition to various coffees. If you are in a hurry, this is not a quick java! The 3 of us ordered the oat milk latte. Very tasty!

I'm not entirely sure what the magic formula for a good coffee shop is. But the people at Box Car Coffee Roasters do. It's a pleasant place to have a latte drink and they make the drinks well

Visiting Boulder this summer and happened across this great coffee shop. It also shares the space with a wonderful deli. Will definitely be back. Thanks.

Had very good coffee at Box Car Coffee Roasters on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado. The latte and mocha were both excellent. Nice pastries too.

BoxCar was very busy when I arrived but well worth the short wait. My latte was excellent- flavorful coffee, just hot enough and nicely finished. There are many tables, including in a side room towards the back as well as on the front patio.

I will admit that I am a bit of a coffee snob. I really enjoy searching out the "best" local coffee roasters whenever I am somewhere new. We ordered a boilermaker and a drip. Both were coffees any coffee aficionado would enjoy while being very...More
