This is your basic seat yourself cafe. The waitstaff is friendly but very busy. We each ordered two-egg ham and cheese omelets, one with wheat toast, one with rye. For some reason rye toast is $.50 extra. With hash browns and coffee the bill came to $18.40 without tip. The omelets can be ordered with three eggs but the two... More

The waiter was obviously tired and just wanted to shut up shop. He made it clear to us that he wished we were not there. We had to ask twice for drinks and when the “food” came it was cold and unappetising. We paid for just our drinks and eat elsewhere.

Just filthy, greasy and honestly not at all tasty food. I made a mistake by trying this place again and to be honest, I should give them an extra star just for not making me sick. I am so sorry but how do you mess up a stack of pancakes?

The cafe reminds me of a store front that was quickly converted (not remodeled) to house a cafe. I don't know if we caught the waitress on a bad or overly busy day, but her attitude and attention didn't win any points with us. We stopped there for breakfast. I guess they are known for their large breakfasts, but we... More

Folks are friendly. Basic breakfast options, but there are far worse places to eat in town -- like the Yellowstone Grill. My request for decaf coffee was honored (Yellowstone Grill did not have any decaff).

This place may not look like much, but the breakfast here was very good. Large portions; friendly service and a great place to start your day before entering Yellowstone.

Located in Gardiner. Montana, just outside of the NW park entrance, only 5 miles north of the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel. Had breakfast here and enjoy it very much. Loved the think cut bacon cooked just right.

We ate dinner here during our one-night stay in Gardiner. Two of us had a buffalo burger which tasted great - but if you're after a different taste - it wasn't particularly distinctive. Two of my friends had their chicken fried steak which did not match up to their expectations at all. Service was friendly, prices were reasonable, only the... More

We were pretty travel-weary when we arrived at this restaurant and found it refreshing. The food was good and relatively reasonable priced (everything is expensive in tourist towns.) Friendly staff and good service. Couldn't tell if the decor was purposely retro or just plain outdated, but I liked it. Salad bar was simple but had good choices and quality food.... More

I loved this place. We just spent 3 days in Yellowstone and based on reviews chose not to eat in the park but instead in gardiner. We had some good meals but I think my favorite was the Town Cafe. It was recommended to us by a server in Butte. I absolutely loved the down home folksy atmosphere, don't expect... More
