We arrived at Bozeman's airport and asked the woman at the car rental counter where we should go for lunch. She recommended Western Cafe and we're so glad we went. We ate a delicious meal outside on a beautiful afternoon. The service was great, not just from our waitress, but we could tell that the other staff were great as... More

We often eat at the Western Cafe for breakfast. We've always been satisfied with good basic fare at a reasonable price and good service. Yesterday a friend suggested lunch there as they had just fixed up a cute little outdoor space next to the building with a white fence and hanging baskets. When we asked to sit in the off... More

Great breakfast or lunch. Friendly staff, outside seating is wonderful in summer. Bobcat Special is delicious - cinnamon roll French toast! They even have cheater specs available when you pay so you can read the bill!

We stayed in Bozeman on our way to Seattle and needed breakfast and just happened upon this little diner. A few days later heading back this way towards Yellowstone we stopped once again for breakfast and were once again pleased with the entire experience. When traveling finding a great breakfast is one of our priorities and this was a very... More

We had breakfast and we will be going back. The menu had nice options, the food was good. The portions were nice and the prices were fair. The restaurant was full and it is larger than it looks from the outside. Still it is a cozy, locals kind of atmosphere.

Party of three; 9am breakfast time; sat outdoors. Great, attentive service. We had pancakes (get the sort stack - 2; 3 stack too much unless you are Haystacks Calhoun) with sausage on side, bacon and eggs with hash browns. Best restaurant breakfast meal in a decade. Highly recommended.

We went on a weekend, mistake! Food was very good, but took waaaaaaay too long. I understand it was a very busy day; very long wait for service, food and check. We had also no silverware to start eating once we received the food. There were two server outside and our server disappeared, we did not see her once after... More

Our party of 5 and a dog had lunch outside and were thoroughly charmed by the simple menu, friendly, chatty service, and good food. We talked local hikes with our wait staff and everyone enjoyed the burgers and sandwiches. The daily special was a screaming deal with a sandwich, potato salad and a sundae for a reasonable price.

Terrific family breakfast restaurant with reasonable prices, generous portions, and excellent service. The Bobcat special was delicious, especially the cinnamon roll French toast. Easily recommend. Don't let the modest exterior deter you from going in...The food and service are well worth it!
