We ended up at this buffet, after almost all the others in the area said that they had no mild dishes. Many of them seem to offer tastes, first, which is VERY different than restaurants in downstate NY, but I wouldn't take a chance. Since...More

Stopped in here for ice cream after visiting the falls. Had 2 slushing and 3 gelatos for around $6......an unbelievably low price for Niagara Falls. Next visit, we are definitely returning here for lunch.

Cheap and good! The pastries and cookies are great. The coffees are all 99 cents. Even cappuccino. Everything in this store is reasonably priced or cheap. Go there first!

Had to return 3 times to find it open. Then was disappointed with the merchandise on the inside. Would have liked to see more locally made crafts by the native tribes, rather than t-shirts and trinkets from China.More

Get gelato, breakfast sandwiches or coffee at only 99 cents each, you cannot beat the quality either! A hidden gem, plus all the souvenirs you could ask for

Inexpensive coffee and baked items; better than Starbucks (99 cents for coffee, croissants!). The best prices on souvenirs: tshirts as low as $2.99, postcards 20 cents each. Staff was very helpful. My husband purchased a Native American bow and arrow set. They are open everyday....More
