The locals love it

If you like to eat where the locals do, track this place down. You won't regret it. It is the real deal for sure. I recommend it all, always have a hard time deciding what to order. The specials are always original and delicious.

While in town for work I had breakfast here 2 mornings out of 3. Down-home tasty food with a Mexican flair, and the ambience is fun and playful. Staff was friendly and fun as well, and they make a dang tasty bloody mary too.

Loved the catastrophe and the cowgirl. I mean, banana bread french toast?!?!? And the bacon was perfect! And the salsa on the catastrophe was delicious. Plus our server threw in a pun for good measure.

I try to eat at the Cateye every time I come through Bozeman(which isn't often enough), it's a great little restaurant with great food and a playful sense of humor(check out their website for the Way of the Cateye). And they have signs directing guests to the Litterbox instead of the restroom. They serve local and organic done very well... More

Definitely worth trying this unique atmosphere, dishes, waitresses and all. Decide for yourself if it "fits your taste" (if not, try Main aStreet Over Easy, a 1/2 block away on Main St). Many good breakfast and lunch items, like their Wavy Gravy, Chicken Fried Steak n Eggs, French Toast variants & some neat Scramble (can't recall the name). Usually crowded... More

We had a short wait on a Sunday morning. The food was excellent and very homemade. They really catered to my dietary needs also.

My friend and I ate here on our last day in Bozeman on the recommendation of locals we'd met at our hotel. The cafe was busy, but we were seated immediately. Coffee was served steaming hot in cracked mugs. I had to ask for my mug to be replaced, because it was rapidly creating a puddle on the table. I... More

My hubby and I travel through Boseman at least once a year headed to Yellowstone. We found Cayeye Cafe years ago and it's been a must stop for us every time. Wonderful food, quirky decor, over the top staff. This year we had a little problem with the food but the waitress took care of it and all was well.... More

What a darling restaurant! Quaint with it's "cat" theme and the food is delightfully different and delicious! We ate breakfast here while visiting Bozeman recently. I had banana bread french toast which was tasty and yummy! Friendly waitress and lots of offerings that really appealed to the taste buds! Will return on next stop in this lovely town!
