Explore Things to Do in Buffalo

Buffalo has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years, from a redeveloped waterfront and revitalized neighborhoods to a burgeoning craft beer scene and over $1 billion in new investment. Now there’s even more fun and exciting things to do in Buffalo! Like architecture? Visit seven Frank Lloyd Wright structures. Enjoy art and entertainment? Spend the morning with Charles Burchfield at the Burchfield Penney Art Center. History buff? Relive where President Theodore Roosevelt took the oath of office. Looking for something more casual? Take in the scene at Canalside or Larkin Square. Or check out Niagara Falls. (Yes, THAT Niagara Falls!)

  1. Sophia’s

    Sophia’s always has that homey feeling when you walk in the door. That is if you can walk in the door! They tend to always be packed. It’s hard for me to get anything off the menu, but the giambotta. It’s a huge scramble of Italian sausage, peppers, onions, potatoes and eggs. I always get the homemade bread and it’s delicious!

    749 Military Rd., Buffalo

  2. The Howling Rooster

    The food is always fresh and tasty, and the staff is always attentive and quick. Your coffee won’t go unfilled. I like their spins on some standards. Like “The Chill” breakfast sandwich with ham, spinach, smoked gouda on sprouted grain toast. My wife is a big fan of the potato pancakes.

  3. Savory’s

    Savory’s is a little bit of a hike, and I don’t get out there often, but it’s great! The food is fresh and there are always different specials to choose from. The skillet scrambles have fun mixes of ingredients and their omelettes are done right.

    5564 Camp Rd., Hamburg

  4. Breadhive

    Breadhive is the kind of spot I love. Their bagels are literally the best bagels ever. It’s counter service and the vibe is perfect. You have to get “The Courtney” which consists of scrambled eggs, pastrami, swiss, greens and whole grain mustard on one of their bagels, or pretzel if you prefer. It’s to die for.

    402 Connecticut St., Buffalo

  5. Five Points Bakery

    This toast café and bakery is perfect for a light bite and a casual hang out. Their toast menu is just perfect for that. From the Vollkornbrot – sauerkraut and raclette, to the Apple Cider – with triple cream brie. A cinnamon roll is a MUST! It’s the best cinnamon roll I have ever had. And make sure to grab some bread to go.

    44 Brayton St., Buffalo

Years of research have shown that the Coop nails this recipe each and every time – a dependably rich, moist, decadently dark chocolate cake that’s Buffalo’s best dessert deal at $8.99.
