Delicious - in our top three for restaurant pancakes!

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... read 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

In the midst of a Friday morning crowd, we were seated promptly in a nice outside dining area. Our Yelp check-in earned us one free mimosa to kick off our mountain weekend! We both ordered omelettes, which were delicious. We love the vibe of the local place and will return!

I recently spent a week in CO. The best breakfast I had during this visit was at this place. We sat at the counter as the place was packed. Very cool folks were sitting at the counter. Piped in music playing everything from the Dead to Zep. Food was wonderful. Fresh. Tasted great. Service was efficient. Would go back in... More

The food was fantastic. I had eggs benedict and it was one of the best eggs benedict that I have ever had. My husband had the Valley of the Sun Omelet. Everything was really delicious. The service was fantastic. It was right next to our hotel

Visited the Buff Restaurant today at lunchtime. It was heaving with people, with a 40-minute wait time (which is a reflection of the popularity of the place, I guess). Nevertheless, we waited and when we were eventually served, our order - the Homeland Skillet, appeared quickly, and I mean QUICKLY!! Excellent food, tasty, fresh and filling, washed down with a...

My husband travels to Boulder for work quite frequently and stays at the Marriott next door. He loves this place and couldn't wait to take us. We got a nice table out of the patio, so lovely to feel the fresh mountain air. My kids both got Pancakes. One of them got Blueberry and the other got the pancakes with... More

It was a busy weekend with graduation. The resturant was on top of getting guest in and out timely without feeling rushed. The food was wonderful, for us more than enough to eat, we are light eaters. Service was friendly, helpful and on top of each customers needs.

We stopped at The Buff for lunch on our way to Rocky Mountain National Park. They have lunch in the afternoon and breakfast all day. We had a few that had lunch and a few that had breakfast in our group and everyone was very pleased with their choices. The Buffaquilles was really good and filled me up before I... More

Service is slow. Wait staff is indifferent to customers. We actually had a server take away maple syrup OFF our table while we were still using it and give it to another table. When we asked for a replacement she dropped off The replacement with an attitude. Finally I asked for a second cup of coffee which the server overfilled... More
