Used to be the old telephone building back in the day. Service is great. Everything is geared around cats. It is very eclectic looking. Food is very different. I had the Greek scramble w eggs, olives, spinach, feta cheese and sin dried tomatoes. Amazing. They also have gluten free bread options. Small place, the wait is a little longer. We... More

I love the Cateye but when I tried several times to go back it seemed that it was open odd hours and never opened when I tried so I gave up. There are so many other great places to eat in Bozeman.

We ate a delicious breakfast here. Best French toast I've encountered with an unusual twist. Plenty of choices. Our eggs were cooked perfectly and the service was good. The decor is a lot of fun and it's a friendly, comfortable venue. Not a coffee shop (no espresso, etc.) but abundant cup refills!

The place has excellent food and is a jem!! My wife and I got caught in an October snow storm and was recommended this place from our hotel, and we are glad we went! Parking is a challenge but once inside there is not a bad thing on the menu. The decor is unique and favors the cat lover, hence... More

The best clam chowder on Fridays. Interesting decor accompanied by great waitress names that add to the cheer. Good breakfast. Fair prices. Friendly staff.

We have only had breakfast, but they also serve lunch. The special always comes with cornbread and blueberries, which is very good. We also like the banana bread French toast. For entree's we have had Popeye, BLT and Greek, to name a few. We have been coming here for several years and highly recommend you try it.

Saturday mornings are busy, but after a 30 minute wait we were seated in a shady outdoor patio area. This certainly added to the enjoyment of our meal as it was nice to be outside on such a gorgeous day. The service was slow due to the crowd. However, the server was great when she attended to us. We ordered... More

Lunches can be disappointing average. If you're in to kitty decor, then the ambiance will be enchant. Very popular for breakfast, so go early as the seating is quite limited.
