Once the staff decided to investigate our allergy to MSG, everything turned out well. Waitress a bit hesitant to investigate for use until we decided to leave without eating. Once she did investigate and tell us that our choices were MSG-free, the beef stroganoff and salmon entrees were very good.

Buffalo has the best breakfasts in Whitefish, there usually is a lineup, but it is worth the wait. Also for supper they have an awesome beef stroganoff or Mac and cheese.

We had breakfast here, you definitely do not walk away hungry. Service was friendly, and the cafe has a nice family feel to it. Can't wait to go back and eat here again!

We ate at the Buffalo Cafe twice during a seven night stay in Whitefish. It is a casual restaurant with great food and service. Even the house garden salad was impressively fresh and interesting!

The Buffalo Cafe has unique and delicious breakfast/lunch items in addition to the more standard fare. So good, in fact, we ate there two mornings during our vacation. On our first visit, we had the Trail Eggs (eggs scrambled with cheese, fresh mushroom, & ham) and Big Don's breakfast (spicy sausage patty, pepper jack cheese, and two poached eggs) both... More

We had dinner here in mid-June. Some unusual and very tasty menu selections, as well as your standard fare. All around great service and a great experience. We would definitely come back next time we're in town.

This is a casual family restaurant. The burgers are very good. We also enjoyed the French Dip and the Fish Tacos. Their milkshakes are excellent.
