If you like going back in time, this is a place you'll probably enjoy. Big breakfast, I especially enjoyed the bran muffin wasn't too sweet was excellent and fresh.

Can't go wrong for breakfast. Great food at reasonable prices. Pancakes large and delicious. I like the homemade jams, especially the peach on my pancakes. Weekday specials and senior discounts make it affordable for everyone. Wait staff very friendly and efficient☺.

We knew we were in for a treat when we walked in and heard the hum of pleasant conversation. The type where you can't hear any words, just a buzz with the occasional laugh breaking in. This is the first star. Then there's the personality of the wait staff. They clearly enjoyed their job, bantering light heartedly with their customers... More

We arrived to a line outside the cafe. FYI, just wait at the end of the line because restaurant does not take down names to fill the next available table. It was a short 10-15 minute wait for a table. We immediately had our beverages and waitress promptly took our order. The homemade biscuit was the best I have ever... More

Love everything about this place. The food is amazing and the service is too. Love the toast and jam but my favorite is the Buffalo Chips. 1/2 order is plenty. Get there before 10:00 am

We followed the great reviews to Buffalo Cafe and weren't disappointed. The steak and eggs were awesome! Definitely order the biscuit, it is huge and delicious especially with the homemade (strawberry) jam. The friendly and lively staff will leave you feeling appreciated. Oh ya, thanks for the steak knife..wink wink.

Best place I've ever eaten. Haven't found anything that compares since I found this gem. Homemade food. Everything homemade from fried potatoes to English muffins and jam. Super friendly service. Exceptionally reasonable prices. Better than my mother made.

I grabbed breakfast here before hitting the highway coming and going between Oregon/California and back East someplace, on vacation. I was blown away by the exceptional customer service and fresh made food and pastries. Biscuits and gravy were by far best I have ever had on a road trip or even at Grandma's house back home. The locals know it... More

If you like an awesome breakfast in a kind of local campy place you will love this. Every breakfast I've had is amazing. Please order toast with the homemade jams, you can't go wrong.
