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

Complete disclosure...I like breakfast at midnight, not at 7 or 8 a.m. That being said, finding myself in this very attractive breakfast and lunch place with my breakfast partner who was really hungry for breakfast I asked if they served their entire menu anytime. Yes! The burgers and other sandwiches were in play! Problem solved. Our fabulous waitress made excellent... More

Recently moved to new quarters, and this is a big plus. The decor is much nicer in this venue, the old pancake house. But, the menu is nothing special. Standard breakfast/lunch fare. Service is decent but the noise level is much louder than I care for. Typical college place.

I saw that there was soup for $5 and salad for $5, so ordered soup and salad. When my order arrived, the salad was just wilted lettuces and 4 thin slices of bell pepper. The lettuce was actually warm from sitting under a heat lamp prior to serving. The bleu cheese dressing was watery in a 1/2 tablespoon serving size... More
