Salad bar

Great salad/soup bar. Affordable and lots of parking. Would definitely go back again when in the area.

When I was in Gardiner this was my favorite place to be. Great and cozy atmosphere along with so many good things to eat and drink. If you want a nice and peaceful morning or afternoon this is the place whether you want to have a nice friendly talk, read a book or just relax.

On our way into the Park, Tumbleweeds offered a variety of items worth of a hearty appetite! Although the young lady seemed alone, she was handling breakfast/coffee/ lunch orders pretty fast. We got two wraps, chips, dessert bars and drinks for $11+ each and probably could easily have shared one sandwich. Both very tasty, bars yummy, good choice rather than... More

We found Tumbleweeds via TripAdvisor because of its high rating, and were not disappointed. It truly is a quaint little place that used to be a house. Great deck, as well as seating inside surrounded by a variety of books (not a bad selection either for such a small town). And the food was delicious - all homemade and prepared... More

We stopped in for an afternoon snack. The homemade soup was great and the salads fresh and tasty. Oh, the baked goods are yummy too. While we didn't have coffee, it looked very good. The interior was homey and the staff was lovely.

We went just for a coffee - but the cake looked so delicious that we could not withstand. Nice little terrace, you can look for books.

We checked this place out at the recommendation of our zipline guide. Coffee with skim milk and a flavor shot was only $1.25. This was a much appreciated respite from the tourist trap price hikes we were used to in yellowstone. Staff were down to earth and friendly. Environment was very chill. I definitely recommend this place if you want... More

The main attraction of this cafe seems to be the free wi-fi they have on offer. Our group ended up here several times! The coffee, sandwiches. and salads were all very good with some unusual offerings. The kids liked the smoothies too! They were happy to leave us to browse the books. The toilet facilities aren't good at all though... More
