Restaurant is right down town. Town was crowded and parking somewhat difficult to find. My wife had the BLAT (butter lettuce, duck bacon, avocado, and really tasty roasted Roma tomatoes) with Gorgonzola dressing. Lots of flavors. I had the curry chicken salad (curried chicken, mango chutney, beet chips and cashews) with romaine hearts on the side with some of the... More

Loved the stuffed portobello sandwich and my husband really enjoyed his chicken and veg curry bowl. Servers very nice, efficient and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, on weekends only breakfast is served but it's always full and obviously a popular place. The decor is like a diner, with formica-like tables and lovely local art. I'd definitely go back.

I stopped in to eat some breakfast on a week day morning and get some for my wife to take to her work. The food was okay not worth the wait and not a good deal for the $. I doubt I will go back.

Have been here before for breakfast and always come back. The Boslie is not on the menu, but still available - consists of scrambled eggs with white cheddar cheese, cottage fries and toast. This visit, the raisin/cinnamon toast was too well done. Great waitstaff.

This is a top choice for breakfast in Bozeman. The menu selection is wide and innovative. Service and food are consistently good. There is often a little bit of a wait for a table, but it's worth it.

With only three mornings in Bozeman recently, we had a daily dilemma about whether or not to venture into another wonderful Bozeman for breakfast. The verdict was...no way! We LOVE everything about The Nova Cafe - fresh coffee service as they get your table ready, inventive daily specials, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff, and delicious food! Our favorites were the... More

Traveled extensively and found awesome coffee and breakfast at the spot. Go in to load up before your outdoor adventure. The huckleberry coffee, GREAT and benedict eggs very good too. I only really needed a half order if you are going to eat the hash too.
