The cafe is also staffed by the Via crew until the border. Then they take all of their food off the train and the Amtrak crew gets on the train with all of the Amtrak food.
I was getting off the train in Buffalo and figured I would have breakfast on the train. Word of advice: if you're getting off in Buffalo, get your cafe food while the VIA food is still available.
By the time the Amtrak cafe attendant slowly got the food out and took a long break, she was finally able to open for business after the Buffalo stop was announced. I literally hurried and bought food as I was on my way off the train.
