Lucy's is the only way to go!!
The barista's are amazing, it's small and quaint. I love the music they play, it gives the whole coffee-drinking experience a whole new feel. Not to mention the coffee is out of this world.
Free wi-fi and outdoor seating as a plus, I freakin love Lucy's, and they've got my undying support. Way to go!!!

The coffee isn't bad. Some of the baristas there are pretty cool. But, the terrible labor practices at Lucy's might make Mr. Hightower reconsider just how revolutionary this greasy spoon really is. Afterall, even Starbucks offers healthcare, 401k, and a living wage.

There a few things about myself that I'd rather not divulge. One of them is that I have a $30 a week coffee habit. As unseemly as that may be, it does make me uniquely qualified to hand out advice on coffee shops. That being said, believe me when I tell you that Lucy's is the gold standard. The coffee is top shelf and more than that it's also Fair Trade. If you don't know what that means the proprietors will gladly fill you in. Essentially it is this: When you are drinking Fair Trade you are fighting corporate tyranny and sticking it to the Man, plain as that. So, if you relate more to say, Che Guevara than you do to d**k Cheney this is the place for you. Highest quality product and a social conscience to boot. How ya gonna beat that Starbucks?

Viva La Revolution,

Buy local or bye-bye local
Great staff, local entrepreneurs and the fair trade is the wayyyy to go. And the Anarchy Poetry Slams are the bomb.

Stay with the local solutions and keep Boise unique.

You can't beat Lucy's for great baristas and organic free trade coffee. Coffee you can actually feel good about drinking! Lucy's is the only place in town for me. Plus, it's so much fun to support a business that had the balls to open up right across from that over-roasted, over-rated beast. YEAH LUCY's!!

Lucy is Mike's Grandma
Whenever Mike does anything he does it right - especially when it comes to food and drink. When Mike is in the kitchen you can be sure you are getting only the best and politically correct ingredients and you are definitely getting the all-important ingredient of TLC. Lucy's is Yum-O and Mike is supercool to boot. Starbucks sucks - look it even rhymes.

Just try it and see!
Mike has really done his homework. This coffee is the real thing and right here in little old Boise, Idaho. My kids and I love the bubble tea! Lucy's is still quick too, even without a drive through. I can park right out front run in and out while I watch the cars in the Starbucks drive through sit and wait. All I can think is see ya later suckers! Anyway it really is the best esspresso in town. smilies/cheesy.gif

Lucy's is what a great coffee house is supposed to be! Excellent organics, serves consistently great food, perfect roasting (not too little, not too much....Starbuck's take note - this is how you do it!!) and a comfortable atmosphere with friendly - efficient service. Why would you go anywhere else?

Mike Stevens is the best cook I have ever known! Best coffee in Boise, too. Best of all Locally Owned and Operated.

Lucy's is the only place I stop for coffee when I am in Boise regardless of what brings me to town. Free wi-fi and it is the only place you will catch me eating quiche in public. Discover it for yourself!!
