Buford's is an adorable privately owner diner that's open for breakfast and lunch 6 days a week. Table and bar seating with reasonable prices! All the normal choices you would expect from a diner and great for locals - the Electric Boat crowd loves it.

Very good breakfast food, good atmosphere, and good service. I especially love the hash. My standard is scrambled eggs, home fries and bacon, with coffee.

We went to Buford's because it was near our hotel. We let the GPS guide us and I'm glad we did. Did you ever wonder what breakfast would be like in Mayberry? Well, then, this is the place for you! It has everything but Andy Griffith-stools at the breakfast counter, small tables and chairs, friendly servers and cooks and that... More

Breakfasted at Buford's twice, most recently was today. Its a friendly neighborhood place, good coffee, friendly service, parking is easy. My chorico and veggie omlet was tasty, liked the dry hash browns and toast. Wife asked for bacon well done - which she just hoped would not be oily and limp - and instead got a cremated bacon flag we... More
