Our son took us here last weekend and what a culinary delight it was! I ordered the Tatanka Bloody Mary which was a quart and had bacon and veggies, delicious. We ordered the Ole' Skillet, the Pacific Benedict and the Primo Chimi. We had to share with each other as they were so awesome and we really wanted to try... More

Good traditional spot to eat at when in Boulder. Kids loved the huge specialty coffee drinks. Overall everything was very good and casual

Had a wonderful breakfast at the Buff. My friend and I came in on a Saturday morning and expected to wait long, but were surprised to be seated in just ten minutes or so. I really enjoyed my large iced chai in a mason jar, the California omelette, and lemon pancakes. Everything was delicious and the service was great.

The water at this location was a zesty flavorful type of snow melt taste that would sit on the palate of your tongue for minutes after you take your first refreshing sip. Omelettes are pretty good too. 8.5/10 would recommend

While this place does have a great breakfast, the service is so slow if makes it hard for me to give it a good review. They also tend to get at least one of the orders wrong when I have been here. The wait staff is friendly and the coffee free flowing but it's not enough to make this a... More

My son was a CU student and first introduced me to The Buff 3 years ago, and the experiences I had back then had been wonderful. However, the last 3 or 4 times I went after hiking with a friend (it's been a regular), it's been a big disappointment, and most of the time the kitchen's fault. Same great ingredients,... More

We stopped for brunch while entertaining family from out of the country. All were impressed with the atmosphere, the food, the selection and the service. They even provided a birthday pancake for my husband who was celebrating his birthday! We will return!
