Great breakfasts

I was first in one morning after they opened, but got off to a bad start after being left in a corner while others who'd come in after me were served before me. After shouting over at the waiter I got some attention after that and things got better. There's a fantastic selection of breakfast... read more

It took a half hour wait to get in, but the supper fluffy pancakes and very large breakfast sausage made it worthwhile. I sprang for the real maple syrup and the the panckes were so good, it would have been a shame not to.

I went to the Buff on the recommendation of many people and was so happy I did. I had an outstanding skillet meal and the lemon & pecan pancake was out of this world. The sourdough bread they gave me with my meal was also pretty fantastic and the icing on the cake with the whole experience was that they... More

If you ever find yourself in Boulder (not an ideal situation for some) and are looking for a solid breakfast option, give Buff a try. We decided to eat here for the first time recently while on our way up to Nederland for a day of snow shoeing. I ordered the Buffaquiles (their take on chiliquiles) and my wife ordered... More

This is one you should not miss if you live in Boulder or are just visiting. The variety for all meals is awesome, the GF menu will bring you back and you get the bang for your buck here! Try this Boulder local establishment as soon as you can and can and can again!

Though it's often a bit of a wait on a nice morning, the Buff is well worth it. Lots of variety and good service. Truly a Boulder institution that's not to be missed.

In town for college graduation. We waited about 25 minutes for our table on Friday morning around 10:30, but it was worth the wait. We actually went to another place first and they had a long wait, too. I had the fresh spinach/mushroom/cheddar cheese/sundried tomato omelette. Awesome. As were the home fried potatoes. Coffee was also very good. Others in... More

Good atmosphere for breakfast with pancakes etc offered in gf versions which tasted good. Hubby had the low carb steak, eggs and bacon which all came well cooked. For someone English the tea leaves a little to be desired as the volume of water in the large glasses overwhelms the teabag so it's not that strong so would recommend asking... More

It seems the locals come here too. The servers are beautiful, eggs Benedict delicious, coffee freshly ground. What are you waiting for?
