Wellknown Buffalo Cafe is located on I90, only 3 miles south of the entrance to Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument on the Crow Reservation in Montana. We are easily accessible from two exits and receive many visitors on their way to Montana’s famous Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks!

Our cafe/coffee house is part of the Wellknown Buffalo Living Culture Campus. This little know historic property is adjacent to the Little Big Horn Battlefield National Monument and is named after the great grandmother of the current owner, Peggy White Wellknown Buffalo. “Sha Eh Gush” (Wellknown Buffalo) was a traditional Crow Indian woman, a mother to many, an herbalist and a healer. She built her own home board by board and lived on wild game and produce from her garden. Her powerful medicine was sacred and she was well respected in the community.

Whether you are coming for an extended Tipi Stay or a one day visit, visitors enjoy the convenience of a café, coffee shop, and authentic Native art and gift shop all on one campus. These social enterprises support the work of “The Center Pole”, a 501c3 non-profit organization which is also located on the Wellknown Buffalo Campus.

We offer fresh roasted free trade coffee, quality whole bean specialty coffees; traditional, espresso, and iced blended coffee drinks; Italian sodas; and tea-based drinks. We begin with the finest coffees, micro-roasted on location in small batches to create the smoothest, best tasting coffee. This unique roasting process allows us to achieve maximum flavor while delivering the freshest roasted coffee within days of roasting. We also serve delicious bakery items, fresh flat bread made in our tandoor oven, and a daily lunch special. We are open for breakfast and lunch.

Our new Café expansion features an “oatmeal bar” in the morning and daily lunch specials of soup and/or sandwiches. We also serve delicious bakery items and guests can watch us make hot, fresh flat bread in our authentic tandoor oven.

Guests may browse our adjoining gift shop where they get a glimpse of the culture and traditional ways of the Crow people through local art, jewelry, and traditional medicinal herbs and minerals. All art and jewelry is made by authentic Native artisans. Crow Voices Radio station is located in the same building and our radio hosts enjoy interviewing our diverse visitors!

We welcome you and are always excited to share our fascinating history and beautiful culture with our worldwide visitors!
