Decent breakfast, good carry out for picnic lunch

This is a really good place to pick up a box lunch for a day in Yellowstone. Everything is fresh & they don't seem to mind making your sandwich to order. Friendly counter service!

My family and I stopped in this little café for dinner. The person working at that time was telling another customer that today was her last day, and it was pretty noticeable that she was ready to get out of there. We ordered a Winston wrap, a veggie gyro, and two salads, and a peanut butter jelly bar for dessert.... More

Tumbleweed is awesome. They have an excellent selection of books, very good sandwiches, and free wifi as well. Their coffee and food is on the more expensive side but typical for a café in this touristy area.

Appears to be a family owned business as a young girl took our order and an older women prepared the food. Ordered the hummus wrap, daughter order the... More

Slow service, but good food. Our person was alone the morning we went in for an early breakfast before our day in Yellowstone. She was very patiently taking order after order and trying to keep things organized while also preparing the orders, but there were just too many people coming in. After waiting for about 20 minutes for our order,... More

Wonder coffee shop with snacks. Healthy quick breakfast. Delightful employees! We stopped for coffee a couple of times and it was well made. Tea is great, too. Skip Starbucks and go here!

Best coffee in Gardiner! A little slow to arrive if the shop is busy but worth the wait. Nice bookshop too and the cakes looked tasty, although I resisted.
