Just what I was looking for.

I was looking for a "typical small western restaurant" for breakfast. It was a nice day and they have outside seating. The service was great and the food excellent.

So, if you are an eggs Benedict fan like me, this is your place. As with any other breakfast joint in town it gets busy fast. I go here once a week and have never had a problem with the service or with the eggs Benny. Get selection of foods and great ambiance. Get there early on the weekend, or... More

This is a classic Montana cafe. Expect the waitstaff to treat you like a regular and the food to be substantial and filling. Plan on eating big and it tasting like the comfort food it is. There's Parking in back too if the street is too crowded and a back door. Prices were good and so was the food I... More

Fresh cut fries, chicken fried steak, a fresh made biscuit, and ice cream included...very hard to beat for $12 excluding tip. We had to wait awhile to be seated and served, but when the food arrived it all made it worthwhile. The service writer at the local Audi dealer and the front desk clerk at the Comfort Inn both recommended... More

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

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

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
