We could not get a reservation elsewhere on this busy Friday evening and were so pleased to chance upon Buffalo Cafe. The veggie burgers were exceptional and the fries among the best we've eaten in some time. It is a quick, casual dinery but wonderful for what it is. They also have a great selection of beers.

You know you've made a good choice when the place is full of locals! Excellent food and enough variety to satisfy the vegetarians and the carnivores.

This place was so good we went back twice! Excellent breakfast- the "Kansas City Buffalo Pie" was delicious Kansas City Bacon, smoked cheddar with 2 poached eggs over fresh hash browns! Fabulous Pancakes & coffee too! Staff super friendly & the place was spotless.

We visited for breakfast, deciding on the cafe by the number of people eating there. Great service and good food was clearly the reason so many people were present. There were many locals which to us is a good sign. Well worth a visit.

This is a family friendly restaurant with very good food. My husband got the mac and cheese and I got the greek bird both were very tasty. So we went back again on Friday night and both got the special which was Fish and chips with a side of slaw. They knocked it out of the park both times. Great... More

I have eaten burgers and fries from one end of North America and Canada, to the other. I stopped here after reading the reviews and decided to give it a shot. I made up my own mix of jalapeños, carmelized onions and Chipotle sauce. Heaven should serve that dish. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
