Wonderful breakfast selection and cool drink options

Yummy! Highly recommend the turkey sausage and so many good options like saddlebag pancakes, breakfast burritos and chicken and waffles!

Really enjoy their food, and their new lacation. Was sad we had to wait for them to re-open. We usually came here for breakfast because and the Buff was serving gluten free bread (toast) years before it was even popular to offer it on their menu's! Great coffee too!

I went to Buff Restaurant with friends from work on recommendation from a local. The breakfast selection was overwhelming...so many great choices. The four of us all had different choices and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The portions were generous and arrived quickly after we ordered. I will definitely be returning here for breakfast.

In the heart of the Boulder hubbub, Buff Restaurant, was a choice for a family get-together. We had heard great things about the food here, and we weren't disappointed. I shared a plate of pancakes (granola) and eggs, sausage and fried potatos. They were all well prepared and delicous. 99 cent Bloody Mary to get things started didn't hurt. Service... More

Atmosphere for the college student. Portions for a starving teenager. Flavor for the foodie. Pecan pancakes satisfying. Sausage links plump, juicy, meal topper. Lots of restaurants in Boulder to satisfy the palette. This one is popular. Arrive early to avoid the wait.

We came to the Buff for lunch, but two of us wound up ordering breakfast. That's the restaurant's specialty. All three dishes were well prepared: bacon infused pancakes, Denver omelet, and California sandwich. The prices were a little bit high. The service was excellent.

Great variety of skillets and service was good. Now for the good stuff. THE PANCAKES! !!!! Not too thick but good size around. They melt in your mouth literally. Just absolutely delicious. Looking forward very much to my next breakfast there.

So..the menu looks just like any other menus. Quite hesitated at first. But once we were there on easter Sunday..we just had to come back before flying home today. Waiting for the food to arrive..hopefully as good as we had it yesterday. We had the Two Step..which had bacon, 2 pancakes (we chose blueberry and add granola), 2 eggs and... More

We travel a lot and by far this is one of our favorite places to eat. The lines are worth the wait and the workers are very friendly. There are black boards for kids to draw on but if you have a long wait and your kids do not wait well you might bring something for them.

Great place to start your day in Boulder. Go early and make a reservation. If you have to wait no big deal as you can get a coffee and sit outside in the sunshine. The Buff serves big everything from a 24oz latte to dinner plate size pancakes. Go hungry
