This past weekend we hung out in Boise with some of our friends. I really like the vibe of Boise and how walkable and fun their downtown is to explore for food, shopping, entertainment – its great and if you’ve never been, its worth checking out!
Saturday we spent the morning at the Capital City Farmer’s Market. I love how large the market is and the variety of vendors that participate. One of the favorite pieces we’ve bought was bought at this farmer’s market last Memorial Day weekend – a wooden Idaho cutout with a heart over the city where we live. It’s on our mantle and we just love it! This year we bought some fun ciders and wine from our favorite Idaho winery.
After exploring the different stalls and meeting up with our friends, we grabbed a quick lunch at Bittercreek Ale House before hitting Zoo Boise that afternoon.
For dinner we went to Fork, a farm to table restaurant with many gluten-free options that I could enjoy without worries that my Ulcerative Colitis would flare. I had some trout and kale for supper and we had asparagus fries for an appetizer.
Sunday we put our name on the list for Goldys for breakfast and spent the 45 minute wait wondering around downtown. We stumbled on a tasty coffee shop where we grabbed drinks for our walk. Goldys was incredible and worth the wait – I had a sunrise mimosa and salmon, cucumber and fill eggs Benedict. After breakfast we spent a few hours walking the Greenbelt along the river before heading to Ste Chappelle winery in Caldwell for the afternoon. For supper we stopped at a distillery/restaurant in the basque block and then we headed to Spacebar for the evening.
Monday we grabbed breakfast at Goldy’s again and did a little shopping at Trader Joes before heading home.
Every time we go to Boise I fall in love with the charm, the cleanliness, the walk ability and the personality of Boise.
