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

Our waitress, lindsey(sp) was amazingly friendly, attentive and helpful. She should be dean of students at waitressing school - she does it how it should be done!

Buffalo is a consistent, hearty & delicious place for breakfast. I love the ham & eggs, the buffalo chips & giant biscuits with house made jams is always a winner. Good size portions & friendly service.

The food here is just about as good as it gets for breakfast, but the real joy here is the staff. Our visit happened to occur on a day when they were already under staffed and then they had another waitress and a chef leave just as we were walking in. Normally that kind of situation causes an insanely long... More

Although crowded for a late breakfast crowd, the staff was friendly, accommodating, and helpful. This is a small place so gets noisy and crowded. It didn't take long to get our food and it was really good and plentiful. Everyone so friendly---obviously a local favorite.

Buffalo Cafe is in the historic downtown area of Twin Falls. If it weren't for the buffalo sign above the door, you might miss it. The food was tasty, and they had a delicious selection of homemade jams (strawberry, blackberry, peach, and apricot-pineapple) that you could also buy by the jar, but I was most impressed by the service.

Stopped for breakfast we had an omelet and the Hunter style eggs. Omelet was well stuffed with veggies and cheese with a side of fresh (not frozen) home fried potatoes on the side. Hunter style eggs had a foundation of the same potatoes upon which they poured a gravy of sirloin and mushrooms and topped it with two eggs. Most... More

Plenty of people there in the later morning. We sat at the bar to avoid any wait, but wouldn't have waited more than 3 to 5 minutes. I ordered the Buffalo Chip on a recommendation from the waitress. I switched out the toast for a pancake which was delicious! I definitely would order more pancakes next time. The Buffalo Chip... More

This restaurant was top notch! We eat here at least once a month. We generally order the same thing, but have tried a few other things. We get the buffalo chip which will usually feed my husband and I. It is HUGE! Cheesy yummy delicious goodness. This is home cooked homemade food at its best. It is a little hole... More
