A smallish café with seating for less than 50 in table, booth, bar seating format. They offer tRaditional American breakfast options with generous portions and reasonable pricing. Lunch options are available at breakfast as well. The homemade biscuits and variety of jellies and jam were fantastically delicious. Friendly service. We will come again when we are in the area.

The food was delicious and they give large portions. Most people were walking out with doggie bags. We split an omelette and it was enough for 2. Great food, great prices!! It's a must visit if your in the area.

Buffalo Cafe is the best little, hole in the wall for breakfast in Twin Falls! My favorite is the Buffalo Chips! A half order is plenty. The service is outstanding!

The food is good here but you might end up waiting for a table as this restaurant is very small. Don't go in with a big group...someone will have to stand.

Great food, great atmosphere, and great service. If go on a Sunday after Church you may have a little wait. But the food is worth your time. 👍
