Great little diner in the heart of Bozeman. Hearty breakfast with generous portions. Great chicken fried steak, gravy and eggs! You won't need anything else until dinner! Servers

This is going to be a bad one! We stopped by for lunch yesterday, hoping to get a decent buffalo burger from a local joint instead of going toTed's Montana grill, which we also have at home. The place was packed, which is usually a really good sign, right? After we were hardly acknowledged we first decided to wait for... More

My wife and I frequent the Western Cafe on Saturdays and Sunday's. It has never failed to impress. The food is outstanding, the service excellent. If you are going, get there a bit before 8am, you have a better chance at not having to wait for a table and the cinnamon rolls typically come out of the oven at 8am.... More

We went to the Western Cafe based on other Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. There are not many of these mom and pop restaurant places left and even fewer that are this good! All of our breakfast's were delicious. From corned beef hash, to bacon that we had to fight passerby's from taking, to sweet breakfasts - everything... More

Fantastic breakfast, I had the "best in the west" chicken fried steak. My son had blueberry pancakes and they were loaded with berries. Good portion size too as he is 15 and can really put it away. Traditional old style diner with western decor. Comfortable place with good prices and very good service.

We were in town and looking for a lunch and decided to try it based on Tripadvisor reviews. I had a tuna salad sandwich and my husband had a ham sandwich. We both thought it was very good. It's a great old-time diner, and the staff and was very friendly and the owner even talked with us. We would love... More

This is an old school comfort diner. It seemed many of the locals dine here. Good service and good food.

I am from the south and LOVE food. My husband and I loved the cinnamon roll French toast, hand formed sausage patties, and the creamy gravy on biscuits. It is 8 pm and my 250 farm boy husband just said" you are lucky they are closed now, or we would be going back for dinner". You will enjoy an old... More

Like taking a step into Montana history. A cafe like I remember from many years ago. And the food was also a reminder of good things from the past. We had a wide sampling from breakfast, the grandson loved the pancakes, to burgers and a very good chicken fried steak. If you're in the Boseman area and looking for good... More

The cafe itself is interesting, with old Montana brands and mounted fish. Just what you would expect in a downtown Bozeman cafe. Large portions, friendly staff. We will be back!
