We have been to this restaurant several times and we are always delighted by their original menu, friendly staff and fun atmosphere. If you are local or visiting Bozeman for the first time you will be love their organic menu featuring lots of delicious GF options.

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.

The four of us, new to Bozeman were delighted to have good local organic food for breakfast. Beware, the restaurant is next to a Starbuck's-type coffee bar. Proceed next door for table service and excellent fresh food.

Went with 3 other people and we each had a really satisfying breakfast. I recommend hearing about the specials, which are often just a bit healthier that the regular menu. We will definitely be back!

Nova is delicious. My favorite breakfast in Bozeman. They have all the traditional breakfasts and some with a special twist. There are always weekend specials. Lunch is also delicious, I highly recommend a slice of the fresh corn bread. Coffee is by far the best in town! The wait can be a bit long on the weekends, so be prepared... More

Traveling from the Midwest back up Oregon, we have had some less than fabulous meals, but Nova was an all-around great dining experience. The decor is eclectic and fun, the service was friendly and the menu has great standbys, as well as interesting combinations to try. Our group of six was impressed by the variety of options, as well as... More

The Nova Cafe, in downtown Bozeman, Montana, was always my favorite breakfast place. Their service was always spot on, not just people making a buck. The food was always so tasty and ethically/environmentally delicious as well. Every aspect of their establishment was something I felt good in supporting. They also supported local artists as well, which was way cool. I... More
