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

Gardiner is a something of a culinary wasteland (which hardly matters: most of us are here for the landscapes and wildlife).

Stopped for a midday pick-me-up with the husband and dog. Stayed on the patio cause dogs not allowed inside. With our combo espresso/coffee drinks and shared sandwich (called the Jasper, it was fresh and delicious), we felt ready to take on the afternoon in Yellowstone.

This is the only place in town that is open before 7am. Stopped in after driving around town looking for an open restaurant for breakfast. House coffee was OK, a little week, but the breakfast sandwich (on a wholewheat bagel) was fast, fresh and very tasty. No doubt I'll be going back

We stopped here for a quick breakfast before going to the park.Service was friendly and fast, the food was very good. Try the oatmeal, it's local and yummy. My husband had an egg sandwich on a bagel which was very good.
