The Nova Cafe in Bozeman, Montana, is a lively diner that features an all-day breakfast, perhaps the best in town, and makes it fun for kids. Located at 312 East Main Street in the heart of downtown Bozeman, it was established in 2005. Families are welcome and kids are entertained with a kids menu, toys and high chairs for the tiniest toddlers. We started with oatmeal with skim milk, dried cranberries and apples and topped with brown sugar and walnuts, cinnamon raisin toast and fresh fruit. I chose my favorite breakfast dish, Classic Eggs Benedict with smoked ham, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on an English muffin served with home fries. My wife had a huge helping of French toast with three slices of cinnamon raisin bread topped with powdered sugar and a sprinkling of pure maple syrup. It seems breakfast is a very important meal in the Old West, one that starts very early in the morning. It gets us off to a good start for another day of traveling and sight-seeing.

The forbidden black rice salad was delicious and filling. It was served in crispy won ton cups on mixed greens with pear slices, sweet potatoes and roasted peppers. Very healthy dishes are served in this cafe. They also had breakfast, soups and salads, sandwiches and burgers. They serve 7 - 2. Free parking nearby.

We celebrated my birthday breakfast here with a large party of 12; they were very accommodating. We had a vegan, couple vegetarians and a someone who is gluten free; we all had multiple options. The food was great. Service was excellent. So glad we found this place!

My husband and I stopped in just for a to-go latte on our way out of town... great little cafe/coffee shop! Our latte’s were superb! The milk was steamed perfectly and wasn’t too hot! Would def recommend this place! Wish we would have had time for brunch as the food looked delicious too!

Love the Nova Cafe for its forbidden rice and squash dishes which are very delicious. The restaurant has an extensive vegetarian/ Vegan menu while maintaining a fantastic regular menu. This restaurant will please everyone.
