Wonderful coffee and friendly staff

Red Buffalo is easily the best coffee shop in the are, including Breckenridge, Frisco, Vail, and Keystone. Well worth the drive if good coffee is a must. The staff were friendly and enthusiastic. Great atmosphere.

There was one employee that was the go-to-guy. The others were either trainees or should find employment without Customer contact. Our coffee and tea drinks were average. At best average. The atmosphere inside was tasteful, yet typical of a coffee shop. I did not have time to enjoy sitting down on the back patio overlooking the Blue River. If so,... More

We love supporting local coffee shops. However, im not sure i would classify as such. Its more of a 'get it yourself' kinda coffee shop. When asked for the daily brew i was handed a cup and told to get it myself. Really, i get better service and coffee at the local fast food joints. Really disappointed.

The coffee is, well, coffee. I personally like Sweet & Low and they don;t carry that, but it is very good coffee. All the usual offerings, with three choices of the daily grind, including decaf. What I liked about this place and the reason I went back is the back patio - outstanding. Quaint spot alongside the river. Awesome.

A relaxing coffee shop - and so much more. Tables by the river; friendly staff, great coffee and baked goods - and live music!

The coffee is good (not the greatest, but good). I had the Ethiopian brewed coffee. It was a little watered down and weak, but okay. I also had a pastry which was obviously not made in-house, but was good. The high point was sitting out by the river sipping my coffee and listening to the water.

My son kept telling me to stop in here and have one of their coffees since I had always been visiting a chain coffee shop. When I finally did I was completely surprised. It was the best white chocolate mocha I had ever had. The coffee is very smooth and the drinks are well mixed. It is a locals hangout... More

Coffee is good, and flavorings are not too sweet. Other items are just ok. The river in the back is relaxing hang out on warm days.
