I am a long time resident of Bozeman Montana and a frequent customer at Sola Cafe. But after my my most recent dining experience I do not wish to dine there ever again. To start, the lady behind the counter taking our order was absent minded and not fully attentive to me and my friends. We visited at around 6:30pm... More

First off Sola Cafe somehow managed to get themselves listed as a dog friendly restaurant... and they are not. They also are not a people friendly place. The atmosphere is cold and industrial and ugly. The food in the displays looks three days old... So, when it. Ones to ordering there is no table device and there is no board... More

Tortilla chicken, white bean, chili and other creative concoctions I can't remember right now. It doesn't matter what soup they are serving, I am satisfied. I also love the gluten free cookies, although they are best the same day they are baked. This place is local sourced and food sensitivity aware. I really appreciate their consideration for the community and... More

I have eaten at Sola cafe quite a bit, and don't know why I still go back. Maybe because it's the only restaurant on that side of town to grab something quick. Anyways, my experiences there have been consistently poor. I generally order something that takes 1 minute to warm up in the microwave, and receive my food 15 minutes... More

Having been in an "old" Bozeman place for breakfast we tried a "new" Bozeman place for lunch with the rest of the hip crowd. The menu is extensive ranging from simple soups and salads to quiche, hearty sandwiches and entrees. We opted for a light lunch, I had their chili special with a piece of delicious sourdough bread, while my... More

I like this place, near my home, for brunch or lunch. The bread products are good (they have their own bakery). Because you order at a counter and some items are brought to table, some you carry I don't find it a very relaxing dining experience.

He had the clam chowder and I had the bacon & ham chili, both excellent. Lots of vegetarian and gluten-free choices.
