Had breakfast here with our family the day after Thanksgiving and was quite the treat. The corn beef hash was amazing as well as the Rustic Benedict. The restaurant was really busy and although they did forget my order and did not receive for a while after everyone else I would still give it an excellent rating. Patience is a... More

Despite the wait we were seated fairly quickly. Friendly hosts. Nice server. Cool decor. Yet, the food was not what we had hoped to enjoy based on other more positive reviews. Omelette sitting in water, veggies undercooked, not much cheese at all in omelette that was supposed to have it, potatoes with sort of an odd flavor, orange juice didn't... More

Definitely worth the wait for Brunch. There are great coffee and cocktail drinks you can get while you wait. Once at the table choosing which benedict or dish will be hard. I went for the Baja Benny to get more vegetables and it was so good! I definitely want to return! Recommendation for drink is the dirty hippie which is... More

An easy 5 to give here. Great breakfast all items. Great gluten free pancakes. Great potatoes. Worth the wait. I would go again in a flash. Also, 99 cents morning drinks - Bloody Mary, mimosa, screwdriver. Only complaint is flimsy silverware. Maybe the students come there and take them, just doesn't make sense to have a bendable fork.

This restaurant is worth the wait on a weekend morning. The service is very good and the food is delicious.

Best we've had in years! Husband has the Ole skillet with a side of sausage, and LOVED it. I had the Atlantic Benedict with a side avocado because I couldn't decide between... yummy !

I usually equate a good breakfast with a lackluster atmosphere. The Buff is the exception. My wife said the breakfast sandwich was the best she has ever had. I had biscuits and gravy which were fantastic. The potatoes were superb.

After about a 45 minute wait (always, I'm told), we had a delicious brunch. Sitting outside in the CO sunshine while waiting is pretty plessant! They make everything from scratch. The lemon-pecan pancakes were fluffy and flavorful, great bacon, the saddlebags, pancakes with chopped sausage inside were yum! We all enjoyed it a lot, and would love to go back!

Saturday was my second time her for breakfast. I had a great omelette, prompt service, and my friends really enjoy the place. Too bad I don't live closer..as I would come more often. I suggest you go early for best parking.

Thank David B
