The Buff is a Boulder institution. Great food in a cool venue that is all about the CU Buffaloes. Service is friendly and the place is locally-owned by a terrific Boulder couple. President Obama chose The Buff for a stop on his visit to Boulder and fun photos of that visit adorn the walls. A versatile venue -- great place... More

My friend and I really enjoyed our meal after a nice hike. The server was friendly and we felt like we wouldn't be able to make the same dish at home. Will go back to have more next time I'm in the area!

We had a 45 minute wait to get in for brunch on a Sunday morning, but the had cheap bloody mary's and mimosas and the food was awesome. I had the Chimi Pollo and would recommend it.

I eat here every time I am in Boulder! They have the best breakfast around and the vibe is really comfortable. I would eat here every day if I could...

I want to like this Boulder institution. You can't beat the 99 cent Bloody Mary! But the food is not so great. The biscuits & gravy were boring & like glue. The chili was lukewarm. The atmosphere is nice & comfortable. The staff is friendly.

Had breakfast here. Good juice. Good biscuits and gravy. Prices are OK. Great service and staff. Based on the massive lines I always see here my expectations were super high. The food was great, but I would not wait 45 minutes. I got here right when they opened and was immediately seated, had order taken, and done eating within 40... More

Peaceful breakfast on a early weekday. Yummy blueberry pancake loaded with blueberries. Large latte and they offer refills in the latte!

We can't recommend The Buff any more! We ate here on our way to hike the Flatirons and were really impressed! The Ole skillet instead was absolutely delicious and the Baja Benny (with bacon added at the awesome recommendation of our server, Jenn) was awesome. The food is fresh and every member of the staff was smiling, friendly and helpful.... More
