Decided to try breakfast at Buffalo Cafe as for once the lineup was none existent. The service was pleasant and efficient. We ordered the Denver Omelette and the Avocado Eggs Benedict, which were light on flavour.

Lots to choose from on the menu and it's all great! We love coming here for breakfast. Be prepared for a few minutes wait as it is a popular place with the locals.

You aren't getting buffalo burgers here but the food we got was great - the Hellfire burger was delicious. Everyone else enjoyed their food, and one in our party got the soup of the day (creamy broccoli, I think) and said it was great. Nice...More

We go to Trip Advisor a lot to find good places to eat. Other reviewers put Buffalo Café #1 for breakfast in Whitefish, so that's where we went. Coffee was smooth and hot. Dishes were hot, tasty, and generous, but not overly generous. Staff was...More
