Went there for lunch and had burgers. I used to eat there 30 years ago during college and had not been back for a while. It was excellent food and excellent service. I recommend this place.

We have been going here for a good long while and even though it has great atmosphere the food just isn't cutting it anymore. Every time we go, weekday or weekend, our eggs are always overcooked and brown and the hash browns are always underdone. We have ordered the corned beef hash and every time it comes out light pink...

We went here both mornings we were in Bozeman, and I had the same thing both times - the special with biscuits and sausage gravy, an egg, hashbrowns, and 2 strips of bacon, all for only $7.50! Easily one of the best breakfasts I've had. Highly recommend!

Came in for breakfast on the way up to ski Bridger Bowl. Excellent food at a great price. The staff are efficient and friendly, and the service is quick. It's clearly a "locals" place. Can't miss.

We spent 24 hours in Bozeman and ended up eating here twice. Stopped in for a quick bite for lunch -- when we saw the menu we knew we had to go back for breakfast! Get the cinnamon rolls!!! Food is what I would call "guilt" food - I felt guilty eating it - but it didn't stop me. Everything... More

This the last of the areas old cafes and one of the best. This is an iconic cafe from Old Bozeman and the Cinnamon Rolls are legendary: You won't leave here hungry! This cafe still has the old fashion seating at the lunch counter. Make sure you get there early or the Cinnamon Rolls will be gone: they sell out... More

We have tried going here before but it was always filled and long lines waiting. They serve breakfast and lunch and it reminds you of being in a small town with all of the great homemade food available. Service was friendly and prompt and the four in our group had no complaints whatsoever!

The food here is amazing. It is a friendly family owned cafe that brings back memories of my small hometown. It is loud in there but that is because they are always busy! The prices for the amount of food you get is exceptional! Love it here!
