We stopped in for breakfast after reading the online reviews. We were not disappointed. Very good breakfast in downtown Whitefish. I had the "Special Pie" and my wife tried the avocado toast. Both were perfect!

We ate at the Buffalo Cafe twice while in Whitefish. Their breakfast is second to none. A lot of good choices to choose. Our lunch was as good. The staff is friendly and the service is good, The prices are very competitive.

We don't have burgers often but sure glad we decided to here, they were to die for. Decor is casual, staff are very conscientious, service is exceptional. We will certainly be back.
