Off the beaten path...

This place was well off the beaten path. It was worth finding. Typical lunch and breakfast fare, but some unique items on the menu also. Food was tasty and well done. We liked the home made jams and jellies.

Good food, good coffee, good atmosphere, and an excellent variety of home made jams. Large portions so bring a big appetite.

You won't be hungry when you leave here. Homemade jam, hashbrowns and a great cup of coffee. The mini Omelets will fill you up and are very cheesy :) this is a great place for breakfast :)

We had such a great time eating here for our Sunday morning breakfast while we were on a getaway for our anniversary. The food was delicious and the customer service was stellar. Our waitress had a ton of energy and was a lot of fun. Buffalo Cafe's muffins and biscuits are home made as well as their jams. I suggest... More

This is a true hole in the wall, off the beaten path, and well worth the effort. Go and get breakfast or breakfast for lunch. Order the Buffalo Chip and prepare to be impressed.

We had breakfast here yesterday and it is the type of local place we love. The food was delicious and portions were more than generous. Choice of homemade jams for the toast was a nice touch. This is a no frill diner with home town food. We will be back for more.

We stopped in for Father's Day Breakfast during our month long camping trip (three generations). We had a wonderful experience thanks to Lindsey, our waitress, as well as wonderful home cooking! We (especially Freckles and Brother Bear) highly recommend making the trip to Buffalo Cafe...if you're lucky Lindsey will be on duty!! :-)

Excellent food!! We went for a late breakfast on Father's Day and there was a wait (all of about 5 minutes even with others in line before us). We're told there is often a line but you definitely want to wait!! The staff were superb and super friendly. And the food.....WOW. We had the Buffalo Chip.......a must try. The 1/2... More
