My husband and I had breakfast on our first morning in Whitefish. Thank goodness, because we will return at least twice more before we leave. Food is fabulous. I had huevos rancheros with chorizo. Mimosas after 11!

Good spot for breakfast. It is a busy place so there might be a wait on any given day. Had some interesting combinations for breakfast along with the usual fare.

3 of us got burgers that were all cooked to order. The fries were crispy and the cooked carrots tasty. The last order was for the beef stroganoff and it was outstanding! We enjoyed the homemade draft rootbeer - very crisp & refreshing. I'm only sorry we didn't get to try one of their desserts.

Buffalo Café was recommended for breakfast and I have to agree, it was a great recommendation. I had the Kansas City Pie (breakfast skillet) and my wife had the Veggie Pie. Both arrived hot and tasty.

We ate here while visiting Whitefish. We had a burger and the special of the day which was a barbecue chicken sandwich. The fries are very very good here too! Friendly and prompt staff and overall great experience with fair prices!

We always try to eat at the Buffalo Cafe at least once when we are in Whitefish. Usually we catch it for breakfast but they have really good lunch and dinner menus too.
