Off Beat Restaurants in Boulder

Time to eat where the locals eat. Chic, downtown restaurants have their place, but when you want to cozy up to the more intimate side of Boulder, make the off-the-beaten-path trek to these neighborhood restaurants. You'll also have a much easier time getting seated on a Friday or Saturday night without a reservation!

Although Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant is just off the Pearl Street Mall, its subdued exterior keep it well-hidden. But its cozy, classy ambiance and delicious, unique cuisine make it well worth the divergence from the path.

Other spots popular with locals are truly off the beaten path because they're in strange locations around town. Efrain's, for instance, is in East Boulder in a section of town that is largely devoted to storage units and industrial warehouses. Likewise, Tibet Kitchen can be found next to a Subway in the tiniest strip mall in existence.
