Incredible place. Don't even look at the menu, order the Buffalo Chip. Don't ask what's in it...order it! Chase it with their sourdough French toast. It's usually crowded and hasn't changed in 30 years. Enjoy!

There is a server there that is so upbeat and chipper every time we come. She is clever and witty and not afraid to have a good time at work. The food is probably the best breakfast you can get in Idaho, so delicious and so much food. If we lived closer we would go every weekend. The restaurant is... More

We went in on a Sunday around mid day for breakfast. There was a small line, but it was worth the wait. The service left a bit to be asked for. The waitress would say she would be right back with coffee, water, butter, etc. but wouldn't come back. We had to ask another waitress for coffee refills. The food... More

It was mostly locals. That's always a good sign. Fast service, very attentive and personable service. The food was delicious. It was nearing the end of their business day and the bathroom was spotless. I would recommend it.

I read that Buffalo Cafe is hard to find but worth the trip. Is it ever!!! The most popular item on menu (breakfast/lunch) is the "buffalo chip" it is a plate of home fries (little cubes and slices) covered/mixed with green chile, tomato, green onion, and diced ham then smothered with a mountain of gooey melted cheddar blend. It is... More

I'll never eat here again. When they screwed up our order 3 times then argued when we complained, and then poked through our food with a fork to prove their point I was disgusted. It was such any easy thing to fix but they had no interest in doing the right thing. We were absolutely treated like an inconvenience and... More

This little gem is a great place for breakfast. Its one of those little hidden restaurants that are only known to locals.The food is always fantastic and more than you can eat and the prices are easy on the wallet. The key is to get there early and get a seat or there will be a line out the door.... More
