We met friends here and were happily surprised to find out that a guitarist and vocalist was on the premises. We sat indoors and enjoyed our morning drinks. Next time I would sit outdoors to enjoy the river. This is a step up from other local coffee shops.

This was a nice little coffee shop with yummy baked goods and breakfast food as well as coffee and smoothies but I am no expert on coffee admittedly. The staff was very friendly.

Red Buffalo is a great local coffee shop. They have great specials and breakfast items. I just tried their Orange Vanilla Spiced Latte for the first time and it was amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you come in the summer you can take your coffee out back and sit on the patio with a view of... More

The coffee was good, the environment was LOUD. Not because of the customers, but the employees. I honestly felt like I was in a bar. One particular employee talked inappropriately and was not quiet about it. She swore often, talked rudely to customers, and was just plain screaming as she was talking. I was appauled. Whoever owns this place needs... More

I discovered this local coffee shop a couple years ago. It is now my favorite place to stop when traveling through Silverthorne. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. I have tried many of the drinks on the menu, all have been delicious. My favorite thus far, was their summer seasonal Honey Lavender Latte. The espresso is smooth with low... More

Run by a local (I believe) this is a beautiful place to have coffee and relax. They serve good coffee and have nice seating inside and outside in the back that overlooks Blue River.
