We always make sure to visit Buff for pancakes - they can be made dairy free and GF. Waitstaff is always friendly and your food is served quickly.

Visiting my son in Denver and this is his favorite restaurant for breakfast. We were seated right away and the service was excellent. The restaurant was clean and had a nice atmosphere! They would have gotten a 5 if my eggs were cooked to order.

This restaurant had a very good breakfast and was reasonable priced. We were in Boulder just for a couple of days and enjoyed this restaurant! We definitely recommend you check it out!

While I liked the character of the old place across the street better, the food is still excellent. Hearty and fresh food from eggs to pancakes and everything in between. We nixed our free breakfast at our hotel for one day to visit before returning home. Again, consistently great food and service, good thing we don't have something similar close... More

I would highly recommend Buff's! The food was wonderful as well as the service. Our waiter, Dylan, had the perfect recommendations. If you visit Boulder, a must eat place!

Great location. We all had omelettes that were amazing. The coffee and bloody Marys were delicious. If you come to Boulder you must eat here.

Had breakfast there recently for a work meeting. The food and service were great. I had steak and eggs with a side of green chili which was done just right, my two dining partners both had Cali omelettes which they loved. The food came out timely and was served well. It was tasty but not great but I would go... More

One of the best restaurants in Boulder for a great breakfast. Restaurant has been in Boulder for many years however this is a new location. The service is great, the portions are what you expect and the food is good at a reasonable price. Well worth a visit.

Sometimes when a place gets lots of press, the actual product they deliver ends up a little short of expectations. NOT here. We were dining around noon and evenly split between breakfast and lunch. All our meals were large and delicious. Even the .99 cent bloody Mary's and tequila sunrise. I expect this place gets crowded during the school year... More
