5 Must-Try Menu Items at The Buffalo Public House


The Buffalo Public House, Specialty Cocktail


1. Brazilini Mimosa

Get started with this tasty cocktail, featuring sparkling wine and orange juice.


The Buffalo Public House, biscuits and honey butter


2. Honey Butter Biscuits

We had these as a little appetizer before our meals came out. Piping hot out of the oven, these biscuits come with a creamy honey butter, drizzled with honey. I wish I could eat these on a daily basis, they were soooo good!


The Buffalo Public House chilaquiles brunch


3. Brazi-Quiles

This was my favorite dish! Think chilaquiles with a Brazilian twist: linguiça sausage, scrambled eggs, cojita cheese, house made salsa verde topped with avocado & sour cream. Careful, the salsa is a bit spicy. This is a MUST ORDER DISH, don’t debate me.

4. Linguiça Sausage Scramble

My mom was my guest, she chose to order the Linguiça Sausage Scramble. It was pretty good, they use free range organic eggs in all of their dishes, this plate had black beans and rosemary red potatoes as an accompaniment.


The Buffalo Public House french toast


5. Stuffed French Toast 

This delicious french toast is stuffed with fresh fruit and blueberry compote, topped with mascarpone cheese and a grilled orange slice. I considered this dessert, because it was a satisfyingly sweet ending to our delicious meal! I recommend you order this one.


Look, the next time you’re in San Diego, mozy on over to the Hillcrest area and stop into The Buffalo Public House! It is a family friendly establishment that I would recommend visiting during the day. At night, the area is a little more adult themed, gastropub style with the night life and such. I have yet to visit for dinner, I want to try the coxinhas, spicy ac with craft beer sauce and pastel. Thanks for having us!
