The reviews of this place look good, but the whole place seemed shut with the area around it pretty deserted too. Not sure if anything's changed, or it was our timing, but based on the Google search web results it should have been open when...More

When here for breakfast, the food was very good along with the coffee, the only thing was the service was a bit slow as they only had one staff member out the front the day we when.

Second best coffee I had but best burger. Great garden surroundings and a bit more modern than competitors. For an on-site cafe it’s great.

Smiling Buffalo is a place I'd love to chill at every weekend. So rustic and homely! On our visit, I'm not sure if the waitress misheard or I mis-spoken, but they served us mango waffle instead of the mango pancake. No matter! There was a...More

When you step into our place, you'll want to whip your phone out to snap a picture. Which is great because our wifi will let you Instagram it immediately. Then you'll sit down, order a hearty breakfast to go along with a cup of coffee which we take much pride in making. On weekends we have live music in the AM. If you like, ask us about our beans or just have a friendly chat. We love either one.
