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. Roost

    Bringing flair to Buffalo’s West Side, Roost’s breakfast pizza didn’t disappoint!  Loaded with sausage, pancetta, thinly shaved potatoes and drizzled with egg yolk and maple syrup, this was a dish to remember.

  2. The Grange Community Kitchen

    Visiting the Grange feels like hanging out in a friend’s beautiful apartment.  Sunlight fills the entire restaurant, and their open kitchen concept with shelves filled with cookbooks makes you feel right at home. Be sure to grab a warm cinnamon bun to go!

  3. Toutant

    Toutant’s creamy shrimp and grits made with heirloom white corn grits, gulf shrimp, Tasso ham, and tomato broth will leave you trying to lick your plate clean. Pair that with a Lobster Caesar and you’ll have yourself an amazing meal. Don’t forget to ask about their pastry of the day!

  4. Britesmith Brewing

    Pair your beer with brunch favorites like fresh cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting and their famous brunch pizza with garlic cream, soft scrambled eggs, potato, Swiss American cheese, house sausage, and scallions.

  5. The Roycroft Inn

    In addition to its historic architecture and furnishings, the Roycroft serves a legendary Sunday brunch. Brunch is particularly special here in the summer months when you can dine outside on the peristyle among the beautiful gardens. Enjoy a complimentary Mimosa to cap off your trip to lovely East Aurora.
