5 in Boise for foodies and other stuff

Just back from a visit to Boise Idaho.
  1. Matador for chips salsa and the Tamarind margarita. Trust me and walk from your hotel. You won't want to drive after drinking a couple of these.
  2. Coffee...the good stuff like you get in Portland and Austin. We tried several places but finally found our people at Slow by Slow coffee bar on 8th downtown
  3. Our second choice for coffee would be either Dawson's Downtown or Big City. Dawson's has a great peanut butter cookie too.
  4. If you stay at The Grove hotel. A solid choice until the new Residence in opens. There's a Trader Joes Across the street for snacks and flowers.
  5. Places to check out. Hyde park district. Table Rock. Drive up don't hike. Snake river scenic drive. Old state penitentiary and the state Capitol
