With its sun-dappled outdoor patio, laid-back vibe, and cozy interior permeated with the sounds of live music, The Blue Moose Cafe has established itself as a local favorite for informal eats throughout the year. On the converted bungalow’s porch, umbrellas and ceiling fans create a comfortable ambiance that caused one Boise Weekly food critic to proclaim the eatery “hard to beat” when it comes to "casual summertime dining." Inside, hardwood floors and quirky artwork line the space, where cushioned stools dress ranks in front of a wood-and-granite wine bar.
No matter where you choose to sit, however, the savory selections from the kitchen staff’s eclectic repertoire are the stars of the show. On top of daily specials, which can include everything from green-chili chicken enchiladas to salmon pinwheels with garlic mashed potatoes, the cooks maintain an established menu of lunch classics. They toss crisp salads with ingredients such as fresh bay shrimp and housemade peanut sauce and prepare 19 gourmet sandwiches, including clubs, melts, and grinders. On Friday nights, live bands entertain crowds with original songs and SAT prep questions set to a melody.
While most kids now bond over headsets during Call of Duty rather than during bouts at Ms. Pac-Man, the lazy Saturdays of growing up in the 1980s and '90s still live on inside Grinkers Grand Palace. The staff has brought together more than 100 arcade games released between 1975 and 1992, allowing Gen-Xers to relive the joys of their childhood as they plop quarters into arcade games in a friendly bar setting. While they aim for the high score on Super Mario Bros., BurgerTime, or Space Invaders, guests can sip on wine and beer or refuel with a range of subs and root-beer floats. A playlist of classic rock hums through the speakers, creating an atmosphere conducive to transporting players back in time so they can remember where they left their lost retainer.
Clad in a cowboy hat and honky-tonk boots, the Idaho Burger's smiling spud mascot holds a burger up to his ear, as if listening for its secrets. Inside the eatery, hand-cut fries made with Idaho potatoes flank the never-frozen patties, which hide within toasted buns. Bakers rise each morning to carve their initials in the sleeping sun or craft cream pies from scratch.

Mobilizing more than 25 years of catering experience, Rachel Hurn— owner of Seasons Bistro, Wine Bar & Catering—blends a Cajun-influenced eatery with a door-to-door catering service that earned a Bride's Choice Award from WeddingWire in 2010. Within the bistro, paninis and salads incorporate flashes of Louisianan flair, such as spiced shrimp, remoulade sauces, and improvised jazz steps. As diners nab forkfuls of Cajun shrimp buerre blanc, occasional live music wends its way through the dining room, complementing the complex notes of an extensive range of hand-selected wines. Alternatively, multicourse catered meals add a splash of elegance to both corporate and private events with formal place settings and French- and Italian-themed menus.

At Big Star Coffee, rigorously trained baristas handcraft each cup of coffee to their client’s request, rather than relegating their jobs to automated coffee makers.

They also stock a glass-fronted case with pastries, wraps, and breakfast sandwiches.
