Locals favorite. All home made, truly from scratch, western style slap your momma good food! Even the jams are made from scratch from local fruits. Everything is big. If you leave not stuffed your will power is herculean and/or you've successfully graduated from over-eaters anonymous. Big fluffy biscuits to soak up the butter and hold the jam, great cuts of...

The Buffalo has the best and biggest breakfast in town. Atmosphere is small town, down home. Waitresses are always friendly and helpful even when running around trying to take care of everyone. Also don't forget to try the homemade blackberry jam. Yum Yum..

Get here early on sunday to get a seat. It's amazing what good, consistent food comes out of a small kitchen. If Cheers had a restaurant, this would be it. They serve locally produced food, and specificalize with homemade muffins and jam. We love this place, it has an amazing history.

Get The Chip!!!! don't know much about the rest of the menu because i just can not get past the Buffalo Chip. As Skillets go this is what Potatoes, Cheese, Veggies and Meat all must want to be once they have reached perfection. It is not a large dinning room so service is fast and the food is hot and...

A great weekend stop for a late breakfast..you could also call this the "Western" café since it evokes all the elements of a great western breakfast.

This is a small locally owned place with great food and service. Be prepared to wait for a table if you go on Saturday of Sunday. One of my favorite local restaurants.
