The Buff Restaurant

The Buff moved across the street from its original location in January 2014, but it's still wildly popular with students, locals and tourists alike. The casual Buff Restaurant is one of Boulder's most popular breakfast and lunch spots. On the weekends, the place is packed, so expect a wait. The food is worth the wait, though — creative and tasty. Pico quesadillas make a perfect light starter: pico de gallo, cheddar and cream cheese grilled inside two tortillas, with a side of guacamole. Other favorites include breakfast tacos (choose beef, chicken or chorizo) and the Baja Benny (an avocado, tomato and artichoke Eggs Benedict) — both of which cry out for the Buff's 99-cent (with entree purchase) Bloody Mary and mimosa.
