Need a place to grab lunch in Boulder or meet up with some friends after work? Whether you’re looking for a quick cup of coffee or a sit-down dining experience, there are plenty of places to eat and unwind in downtown Boulder that you won’t find anywhere else. 

Astro Coffee Bar

Let’s face it, most of us are a little grumpy before our morning coffee. Astro Coffee Bar is a great place to grab a quick drink before coming into the office.  Whether you like your brew hot, iced, or blended, there are plenty of fun and unique flavors to choose from. We recommend the Nutty Astronaut, an “out of this world” delicious espresso drink made with caramel, peanut butter, and mocha.


Craving some delicious, high-quality tacos on the cheap? T/ACO has a tasty selection of street tacos, margaritas, draft beers, and more. You’ll find something for every taco lover here, with options ranging from chicken, fish, steak, shrimp, and veggie tacos.  Don’t miss the daily taco happy hours from 2 pm-6 pm as well, so you can get authentic street tacos for only $3!

T/ACO also offers catering, perfect for your next lunchtime office event. You can make a reservation with them by calling 303-443-9468.


Craving sushi and other traditional Japanese cuisines? Whether you’re familiar with Japanese food or trying it for the first time, Japango has something delicious for you. With lots of variety and fun flavors, we recommend bento boxes for takeout lunches. The daily special bentos have a featured entree, 4-piece California roll, and vegetable tempura. 

Japango has beautiful patio seating on Pearl street, a bar, plenty of indoor seating, and takeout options. Don’t miss the $2 discount on all special rolls and drink specials all day on Mondays and from 3pm-6pm daily.

Organic Sandwich Company

Looking for a grab-and-go lunch you can pick up on your way to the office? The Organic Sandwich Company, located at 1500 Pearl Street, is perfect for busy people. Their sandwiches are always made fresh, using organic ingredients sourced from local farmers. For even faster service, order ahead for pickup or delivery

If meat isn’t your thing, you’ll find plenty of other options, including vegetarian sandwiches like the veggie Reuben. They also have gluten-free bread and vegan options. Perfect for a quick and easy lunch!

Pizzeria Locale

Colorado may not be famous for its pizzas, but Pizzeria Locale offers wood-fired pizzas inspired by pizzerias in Naples, Italy. Grab a pizza for a lunch break or to take home after a long day at the office. Sporting an expansive menu with plenty of different choices of cheeses such as parmesan and mozzarella, toppings like peppers and mushrooms, and drinks, Pizzeria Locale gives you the perfect excuse to host a pizza party at the office.

License No. 1

After a long work week, it’s nice to unwind and grab a drink with friends or coworkers. License No. 1 is an excellent place to do that.  Grab an inexpensive bite and $4 drafts during happy hour, Wednesdays-Sundays from 5-7 pm. If you’d like entertainment to go with your food and drink, License No. 1 hosts events like comedy shows every Thursday at 7:30 or 9:30 pm or live performances by local musicians at 9 pm most nights.
