Friendly Staff

Stopped by while we were in Gardiner. We had run out of books to read. There is a small selection, many were about the Yellowstone area. Staff was super friendly.

We went for coffee and a breakfast sandwich. My hubby liked the coffee, but I thought it had a sour taste. Breakfast sandwich was OK for $4. Ice cream was the best (an after breakfast treat) Staff were very nice.

Great place to have lunch on the outdoor patio. Our group loved the chai lattes! Food is reasonably priced and the sandwiches were flavorful. The book/gift shop has unique selections. Perfect place for lunch or snack after rafting down theYellowstone.

Stop here to pick up their delicious wraps for a perfect to-go lunch while you tour Yellowstone. They are large enough to be shared. Find a pullout with a view and enjoy your picnic!

We stopped several days on our way into Yellowstone and picked up wraps to have for lunch in the park. It was perfect. Great food! Very convenient! (They also serve breakfast!!)

We sampled the Breakfast Sandwich one morning and were completely amazed at how excellent our jalapeno bagel, egg, pepper jack cheese and ham sandwich was prepared and tasted! The steaming mug of coffee was also spot on. Just $ 10 for 2 of these custom made sandwiches ( you choose what kind of bagel, cheese etc) Don't miss this place!

Latte was only average but sandwiches were large and tasty. Two people can share one. Good value and good service too.
