Great selection of food!

Breakfast served all day. The Bobcat special and chicken fried steak are highly recommended. Biscuits were very fluffy. Fresh brewed tea and diet Coke!!

One breakfast is nearly big enough for 2 people. Tasted like ranch cooking. Great coffee. Service was right on.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and how the workers were friendly. Definitely a local stop they called many customers by name. Food was good. Homemade Fries were not greasy. They are definitely a breakfast place. I had lunch but will be back to try breakfast

Cozy, warm, bustling café at the edge of Downtown. Very quick and friendly service. Had a hot breakfast - very satisfying. Would return in a heartbeat.

We were looking for a good place to get breakfast on a recent trip to Bozeman. We happened to notice the Western Café and decided to give it a try. The line was huge, both front and backdoor. We decided that it would be easier to just wait it out instead of looking for another place. We are glad that... More

Because one of my other choices had a line out the door we ended up here. What a wonderful second choice!! It is small and the setting is limited, but the wait staff was super attentive to wait times and let a choose to keep waiting for a smaller table for two or share a family style table. We opted...

I've only ever had breakfast here, but it's the best breakfast that I've had! Quick service, great atmosphere, great food. I come here from campus all the time and bring friends from out of town here and they say it's better than the chains like Perkins (which it is)!

Being in bozeman for 8 years the "hole in the wall" look of the western detered me. what a mistake....it is fantastic and classic. fresh local food. a very hard working and present owner. i reccomend the classic meat hash. only negative.......the coffee is weak and the wait can be long.

Very busy little place. Sat at counter. Very clean. Best chicken fried steak ever. Homemade for sure. Crispy. Eggs over easy were perfect. Huge serving. Didn't need the toast. Will eat there again. Wish there was more seating.

Looking for a good breakfast? Want to eat where the locals go? Sit at the counter or at a table and enjoy the crew at the Western. Giant cinnamon rolls, homemade pies, big ole plates of eggs and bacon,sausage, or ham. Huge pancakes! Warm cinnamon roll french toast - yum. The coffee and tea just keep comin'. A fun spot... More
