We enjoyed the food and service here so much we went back the next night. Comfort foods and enough choices to please anyone. Moose Drool beer was drink of choice. We went for dinner and got there before six to get a table. I think it's always busy. Even with the crowds, it was not so noisy you couldn't talk... More

My wife and I exchange rings in front of a witness in this little cafe 11 years ago this month. We were so focused then that we remember the place was really good, but for fun we went back so we could relive the moment and see if the food was as good as we remember . It was .... More

What a great café. We were told by a friend that you have to eat breakfast at the Buffalo Café. They were right. The food was great, definitely a place that the locals go. One thing struck us funny: Waitress said there are no substitutions, if you don't want something we will deduct from your breakfast and then charge you... More

The old Buffalo Café, what a gem. Locally owned and operated, has been around forever it seems. Good wholesome staff, family friendly, just a great place to eat. Food is wonderful. Some of the best in the Valley. It's one of those places that still puts the LOVE into their work and it comes through in a good meal. Staff... More

We watched the soccer finals here and had a great meal. The service was excellent and there were lots of things on the menu I wanted to try. Everyone in my group enjoyed their food. It was a simple bar type menu, but definitely elevated. We enjoined our leftovers the next day! It's very casual and was great for our... More

Very popular spot in Whitefish that attracts a lot of locals and for good reason. The breakfast here is super. Check out the Buffalo Pie offerings for something a little different than the run of the mill eggs over easy with bacon and toast. Also enjoyed the blueberry pancakes. Expect to wait on Saturday mornings if you arrive after 9... More
