Jim's Coffee Shop Rooster

This is the rooster on top of Jim's Coffee Shop in Boise's North End. An old-fashioned kind of place smack dab in the middle of what I always think of as Boise's health-conscious zone - across the street from the Boise Co-op. And it's the antithesis of healthy - serving up old-fashioned coffee shop chow. In fact, as I recall, the "diet" offerings are pretty funny - like a cup of steam from the kitchen and toast crumbs scraped off the tables. The rooster has been a tempting target over the years, with pranksters kidnapping the fowl a few times.


  1. :-) Steam from the kitchen -- what a hoot!


  2. I can see how that would be the target of pranksters. Kinda big.

  3. Keep sticking it to them, Rooster! It sounds like my kind of place.

  4. I have a friend who is friends with the owner of this place - and really, every time the rooster is stolen, he kinda gets a kick out of it! He gets free publicity, and every far...the chicken has been returned or found.


Thanks for stopping by!
