The heart of the Linen District beats with caffeine. If there were nothing here but Big City Coffee, it’d still be enough to make it one of the best neighborhoods in Boise. When the weather’s nice, bright red picnic tables appear in front of the shop, a former farm-supply store complete with a working garage door, and are immediately filled with families, businessmen and cyclists waiting for a seat inside. Profits from sales of the shop’s signature Big Titty Blend go to fighting breast cancer. The sunrise muffins, along with the rest of the baked goods, are sometimes bigger than the plate they’re served on. The day-olds are a steal at $1. Some people have an issue with the way Big City fixes its eggs—steamed in an espresso steamer—but if yours come with a side of potatoes (soft but crisped on the outside), you won’t care. If you think you will, choose from over a dozen different types of waffles.
