This restaurant is open only for breakfast and lunch. It has excellent sandwiches in a very wide variety (the melts are especially good), outstanding soups (the tomato bisque was really good, and very filling), chili, all of the breakfast standards, and a number of inventive skillets. It is very moderately priced. I strongly recommend it.

Had the Ole which was perfect! The staff is friendly and attentive! The coffee drinks are really good. The place gets crowded so arrive early if you can.

On accident, happened in to this place for breakfast. Had a short wait, but turned out to be well worth it. Order the Matterhorn homestead skillet and my son ordered the Heartland skillet. This was THE best breakfast I have ever eaten and the homemade toast and $.99 mimosas were just the icing on the cake. YUM

One more (and my last) terrible experience at the Buff. I have never figured out why the long lines. Visited today with out of state friends and had the worst and most overpriced cheese omelette ever. How can you screw up a cheese omelette you ask? For starters, you add very little cheese and then cook until flat and so... More

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.
