We thought by going at 1013 on a Sunday morning they would have "brunch". We thought wrong. The breakfast buffet was just ending and the lunch buffet was not ready yet. One of our party had breakfast and the 2 of us ordered breakfast off the menu (breakfast served all day.) Breakfast was good with a huge helping of hashbrowns.... More

My sister and I stopped here for an early lunch on our way to Mark Twain State Park. The restaurant is very easy to find, right off of the highway. It is very clean. The waitresses are all very nice. We went on a Friday and the lunch buffet at $8.49 was incredible (you can also order off of the... More

While we were in town visiting family, they took us to Saints Avenue Buffet or as they called it "smorgasbord". We had the buffet which was very good. Large selection and most of the food looked fresh. The service was good. We had a large group and we spent a while talking and we didn't feel rushed to move along.... More

We stopped at Saints Avenue Cafe for a late lunch while on a recent trip. We ordered a BLT and a tenderloin. The BLT was good, and the tenderloin was huge! Service was good. The buffet was set up but didn't opt for that. I would question the condition of the buffet food for dinner that night as large quantities... More

While traveling through Missouri, we stopped for a late lunch. Café was not at all crowded. Luckily, we both decided to have the buffet where we could wait on ourselves because the service was very slow. Buffet had a wide variety of food and most of the items we tried were good.

Stopped by here with my family while traveling through the area. Made the decision to stopped based on some of the other reviews and we were not disappointed. We got there around 1:30pm on a Saturday and they weren't super busy but they did have several tables of guests and kept refilling the buffet to make sure it had fresh... More

We went to Saints Avenue Cafe in Bowling Green, MO to have a late lunch and found a very good buffet that was unexpected. Very good food and very good service. We were traveling home to MN from FL. I will make sure to tell friends,family, traveling thru MO, to stop! They have a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

To preface this, I will say that I have been to the Saints Avenue Cafe in Boone, IA, and that serves as a point of comparison in my experience at this Saints Avenue Cafe location. The price of the evening buffet is $10.49 + an expected tip and does not include a drink. There is only one buffet island along... More

We enjoyed eating here both for a brunch after church on a Sunday and for dinner one evening during our trip. The buffet food was better than we expected and the staff was very helpful
