This is THE place to have breakfast in Twin Falls. I was there with the locals and Lindsey, my waitress, treated me like I was part of the family. She was SUPERB. Never was my coffee cup less then half full and she helped me order what could not be missed. The one downfall was the biscuit. I found it... More

I love these small mom & pop type places. I go out of my way to find them. Just plain good fresh food here, Perfectly prepared. Home fries are delicious and so is the home made jams. Wait staff was very friendly. Nice bonus, prices are better than most.

The small cafe is in the middle of an industrial section. Clean inside, waitresses were pleasant. Service was good. Food was ok, otherwise it would have gotten 4 stars. Too much gravy on the chicken fried steak. The chili verde burrito swam in sauce and melted cheese making it soggy. They have the best homemade jam and coffee. But if... More

Found this place on Trip Advisor and had to give it a shot. Wait for food was a little long, but the pace was packed out. Decor was typical diner, not too much too it. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros and it was delicious! The chorizo was super tasty.

Had Sunday lunch passing through on a road trip. What it lacks in size and roominess is more than made up for in ambiance and wonderful food and service! You MUST have something on which you can spread their homemade jams: strawberry, blackberry, apricot-pineapple, or peach marmalade the day I was there. it was an afterthought request to put on...

This is a place far enough off the beaten path that few tourists will stumble across it. Located on a side street on the fringe of the downtown business district, the Buffalo Café is the quintessential diner--breakfast and lunch only, booths and stools, and all sorts of fun stuff adorning the walls. The burgers were delicious, the service efficient and... More

When we read in reviews that it was homestyle cooking and that they were open for lunch, we were hoping for more homestyle lunch options than just sandwiches. We found the limited lunch menu very disappointing. The breakfast menu, however, has a good selection and the food comes in good portions. We were very pleased with our omelettes and pancakes....

Open from 7am until 2pm, this very casual café is frequented by farmers, cowboys and other locals. Most folks order the copious breakfasts at very reasonable prices. Dishes are loaded with meat and other fat-rich ingredients but there are a few vegetarian dishes such as the guacamole omelet that we ordered. A side salad was reasonable. The bran muffin was...

Amazing food, awesome price, great service!!! I'm from Maltby, WA, where we have the famous Maltby cafe. I have to say that the food at the Buffalo Cafe was on the same level: perfectly cooked and seasoned, large portions, home style. My 10 yr old usually has to order from the adult menu to get full, but not here! She... More

My wife and I eat here regularly on Sundays for breakfast. They have many great dishes however I always seem to have the same thing. The Huevos Rancheros. All of their menu is from scratch and the food is always great! Service is always great! This is a very old place and small probably seats about 60 people, be prepared... More
