Be sure you are hungry!

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

Took everyone's advice and got the buffalo chip. It was a delicious heart attack waiting to happen. Good coffee. Nice waitress. Only con is its not handicap accessible. It was hard for my mother to navigate the potholes, steps, and weird series of curbs leading into the cafe.

Man this place is always packed.. like always… but for good reason. Every time I go back to Twin this is one of my got-to-go to restaurants. Before I moved away I would always bring friends to this cafe and they always want to come back. My favorite part, other than the awesome customer service, is the coffee. I mean... More

Food: The portions are large! We ordered half servings and each of us still took food home. Also, the food flavor a were wonderful. I had the Eggs Hunter... More

Food is always excellent. I love going for breakfast so I can have some of the homemade jam. When family comes to visit they always want to go to the Buffalo Café for breakfast. Staff are always super friendly and coffee cup is never empty.

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!
