Disappointing lunch

Remember loving breakfast at the Buff in their old location years ago, so I figured lunch might be good, too--tho' I know things can change over the years. Hopefully, breakfast is still good there, because lunch was a disappointment. I ordered the "Ensalada" with chicken on top. The chicken was... read more

One of our favorite breakfast restaurants. Food is reliably good, I like the new location and well worth the wait ( which can be large on Saturday mornings)

The Buff has always been a great spot, but is even better with the expanded room. Only complaint is waiting, but usually not too long, especially when a newspaper and people watching are always available.

The Buff has been around "forever" but had gotten a little run down. About a year ago they moved across the road to new digs. Much better. A lighter more upscale feel. Improved the menu to be "more Boulder", fresh and healthy choices. Great for breakfast or dinner.

It was so good the first morning, we have to go back the second morning, and we still may go back the 3rd morning. The flavors rancheros were fabulous, the fresh fruit on the plate was very fresh and delicious, fast and efficient service, & a very friendly staff. Overall of positive experience

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 goodies on offer. I went... 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!
