could not agree with u more grant...odd how andra also gave a negative review on city search back in 2009,,,she must really have a hard on for clark and his crew to post an additional negative review more than a year later...i generally pay a visit a few times a month and have never had bad service and always enjoy the food,,, i think you just have to have a relaxed attitude and enjoy the ride...odd how she is the only one to bitch about the service,,look in the mirror and i suspect you will locate the source of the problem.....
Best Bakery Denver 2010 - Buffalo Doughboy Bakery - CLOSED
1298 S. Broadway
Denver, CO 80210
Just a block off Broadway, a Popsicle-hued Victorian is home to Buffalo Doughboy Bakery, a hustling bakehouse and confectionary whose glass cases brim with scratch-made savory cheese galettes, crumbly scones, sweet turnovers that pop with cherries, cupcakes, breakfast quiches and warm and buttery croissants, lighter than froth and so flaky that the softest blow turns the golden shards into confetti. You can order them naked, stuffed with feta and spinach, pumped with chocolate, or swelled with salty tarps of prosciutto and Asiago, the last of which is the equivalent of falling head over heels in lust for the first time.
My father is a baker in Oregon- a damn good one, that refuses to even mention the word "doughnut". A real baker-so I know the world of pastries and dough- and let me say that the Buffalo Doughboy has the most mouth watering menu. Love their food as much as Coloradans love their sunshine. We are missing it dearly while living in South Korea- the bean paste buns just dont cut it.
Buffalo Doughboy is truly one of Denver's hidden treasures! The crocodile and the chocolate croissant are TO DIE FOR!
The Buffalo Doughboy is a fantastic bakery. I really believe it's consistently highest-quality bakery in the city, croissants included. This is one of the first places I bring friends from out of town if I want to show them something unique, and really outstanding, that Denver has going for its culinary scene. I have to say, I couldn't disagree more with Andra's comment about the service; when I'm in town I go to the Doughboy a few times a month, and I've always found the service to be fantastic. Clark (the baker) and all the baristas are super friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I don't think I'm alone either- a reviewer on Yelp described one of the employees as "the most amazing, friendly barista ever". I really can't imagine how Andra could have had "consistently awful" service. I just have to take exception and leap in on the Doughboy's behalf here! Great folks serving great food! Best of Denver indeed- an absolutely deserved designation. We're lucky to have this place in town.
This is the most awesome bakery in Denver. I have been going there for several years and each visit is a taste sensation. The dedication and commitment to excellence by the owner and baker, Clark Eaton is extraordinary. The atmosphere is pleasant and convivial and usually filled with fun and interesting people. I commend you for your selection of this bakery for your award.
While some of the pastries there are very tasty, there is one fatal flaw- the service is plain awful- consistently. The heavily buttered pastries just don't make up for that. Plus, if you think you are getting anything remotely resembling a flaky Parisian croissant, you are wrong- try Devil's Food or Trompeau.
