I come here about once a month for lunch. I would come more frequently, however it's terribly expensive. Lunch for two of us today was $45. On the other hand, you are paying for delicious, high quality food. My boyfriend had the "chop chop" salad and I had the "free bird panini" on GF focaccia bread. His salad was awesome.... More

As a first time visitor, the front counter person gave wrong instruction. Manager attempted to discount event by saying it provided a 'training experience'. Water glass wasn't refilled. No one checked in to see if everything was satisfactory. No signage for where to enter patio. Their drive-thru is located next to patio; grew tired of hearing car engines and smelling... More

Loved this place! We had great coffee and some nice salads here. Also, some good local beers. It's well worth a visit for a light, healthy lunch.

This place was recommended by a family member who loved the Huevos Rancheros. I don't order this dish often but the power of suggestion had me all excited about having this dish which I ordered. It came out as a kind of casserole with everything kind of mixed together including too much sauce. It tasted like a bad enchilada. The... More

We had noticed this cheerful-looking cafe while driving to the nearby Museum of the Rockies, and went there for a Friday-evening supper. We each had a salad, and were very happy with the quantity and quality, particularly the dressing. The music in the main area was rather intrusive, so we went to a quieter area. A silent auction of paintings... More

A friend on a gluten-free diet was visiting last week, so we decided to try Sola Café for the first time. We arrived during the lunch rush, but the service was fast AND friendly-and there were plenty of options for both of us on the menu. I love how they support local growers. We were able to find a table... More

Good breads; interesting combos for foodstuffs ("grown-up" macaroni and cheese); friendly service: order at the counter, wait staff brings it quickly to your table; committed to locally grown, locally raised (free-range when possible); fun atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

Fun food options, but more expensive than expected & service was quite slow. The grown up grilled cheese was very good. Mac & cheese, not so great.

Sola has 2 locations in Bozeman, 290 W. Kagy Blvd and just west of downtown in Main St. They have daily specials and can accommodate everyone's dietary needs. Buy a loaf of Gluten-Free Bread. It's one of the best I have tasted! Enjoy!

Stopped by here after a visit on campus. Sola definitely cultivates a 'cute eco-conscious foodie' atmosphere without pretension. The selection is decent, appropriate for an informal get-together; lots of sinful treats which is what I focused on! Chai latte was prepared well, coffee was fresh. Our cashier did get our order in wrong even after reading it back to us,... More
