Just a few blocks away from the University of Colorado Boulder, as well as several parks and Boulder Creek, Modmarket has modernized the fast food experience with counter service for a wide array of made-from-scratch seasonal items. Wood-paneled walls near the counter are paired with a stark white seating area to provide a clean, stylish feel to the interior. Outdoor seating is also available. Simplicity reigns in the creation of their menu items, and each option is made from whole ingredients, with sourcing information and recipe details for their menu available online.
The breakfast menu offers up options ranging from whole grain waffles with pure maple syrup, egg and tofu scrambles, breakfast sandwiches with different choices of meats and spices, and other plates of more variety. These breakfast plates combine cage-free eggs with prosciutto and lemon maple vinaigrette, chili and roasted potatoes, or simply bacon or sausage. Lighter options in fruit salad and gluten-free honey multigrain toast are also available.
The lunch and dinner menu starts off with eight different salads to choose from, including the Superfood salad made up of a spinach/kale blend, quinoa pilaf, feta cheese, carrots, almonds, red grapes, and finished with champagne vinaigrette. For those looking to add meat to their greens, the Flatiron salad mixes grilled steak with roasted potatoes, gorgonzola, and caramelized onions, and the Thai Coconut adds roasted chicken, grated coconut, sweet potato, and a peanut mango dressing to its mixed greens. Made-to-order sandwiches and brick oven pizzas made with 100% whole grain dough expand the variety of the menu. Home-style plates and three types of seasonal soups/chili round out the heartier part of the lunch and dinner options. The home-style plates, including a sesame tofu plate, are offered with two sides, which are somewhat lacking in greens but not in flavor.
Parking is located at the Twenty Ninth Street mall.
