Still The Best

The Buff is located near McGuckin's & the Marriott. It is still the best breakfast & lunch spot West of Denver. It can be very,very crowded, but today (Thurs. in August) we got right in. I had the Huevos Rancheros - delicious. My spouse had the turkey-avocado sandwich, really good. The portions... read more

I think I know why this restaurant is so popular, very large portions. When I looked over to the table next to me, I was shocked how high the food was piled. My own order of French Toast was too much by 1/2. The breakfast options were many, but unimaginative, making them seem expensive for what you're getting. Service was... More

We love eating in the Buff and everyone else in Boulder does too. If you are going at a real meal time, you will probably have to wait. It's a college town, so early is best. We came in at 10:30 and it was hopping. Why? Lots of yummy breakfast foods with plentiful portions. Mimosas and Bloody Mary's are a... More

Always a definite stop when we're in Boulder to visit our CU son! Delicious selection of anything you could name for breakfast. My favorite is a large selection of Eggs Benedict varieties. Yum! They also have tasty Mimosa's for 99 cents on Sundays.

Very attractive, excellent food. We had a veggie omelet and steel cut oatmeal, both of which we recommend.

The new facility is very appealing. This is a long standing local establishment. Pancakes (lemon-pecan) were very good as were the Eggs Benedict. I would go back again and recommend it to others.

I had the eggs Benedict with salmon and spinach and it is by far the best breakfast I have ever had.

Our family spent a week in Boulder, and while our kiddo was at day camp, DH and I went on a date for breakfast or lunch every day. The head of the camp recommended the Buff for the best pancakes, and she was right. DH placed them third all time after Al's in Minneapolis and a tiny place in San... More

We like going for breakfast at the Buff because the food is always good and you can't beat the $.99 Bloody Mary's. One of my favorites is the egg benedicts. You get a choice of potatoes or fruit with the dish. My wife tried the breakfast tacos and thought they were pretty good. If you feel like having a Bloody... More
