Breakfast with the trains!

This is a lovely building that used to be part of the Northern Pacific railroad depot, so you can hear the trains go by, or step out to see them during a great breakfast. I had the short stack of pancakes which were light and perfectly done. The art work on the walls is from railroad promotions of... read more

Good service. Good quality home cooked food. Good portions. Good atmosphere. I like the breakfast and dinners. Coconut cream pie is fantastic. Servers could be a little less pushy with taking your plates away...let everyone finish so people still eating don't feel pressured. One of the few consistently good food places in Livingston.

We had an awesome, inexpensive breakfast at the Northern Pacific Beanery, which is in a building adjacent to the historic train depot. The omelets were great and the cinnamon roll to die for! The service was also quite good.

Very average food provided by TERRIBLE management. Sure wish they would worry as much about their food as they do about who is parked in their lot. Everything appears to come straight off a Sysco truck. Many better options in Livingston. GO ELSEWHERE!

I visit Livingston several times a year. The Beanery is my absolute favorite for good food, friendly service and my morning coffee. The daily specials are great; if they sound good to you, try them because they will almost certainly meet expectations. The ambience of the old depot, passing trains, and interior decor only add to the experience.

The Beanery features REAL food, fresh, and lovingly prepared. Delicious lunches... including scrumptious sandwiches, homemade soups, light yet satisfying salads, and hearty specials. And out-of-this-world PIE! The service is fast and friendly, and owners Phalle and Joe have done a wonderful job of making this Livingston landmark a great place to eat once again. It's my family's favorite place for... More

Livingston has a number of good breakfast places, and this is one of them. A large part of their appeal is the place itself, plus the staff is serious about being cheerful and competent too. I'm a fan of the blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs. The coffee could be better, and sometimes the noise level is off-putting, but i persistently... More

The first time, I had the Eggs Benedict which was the special that morning. It was great! We were on vacation with friends for a week in Livingston and we all liked our food so much that we went back later in the week. The 2nd time there, I had the Cinnamon Roll French toast, it was wonderful!

I had the southwest chicken salad, nice combination of bean, corn, chicken and lettuce, the salad dressing was nice and spice, but not over powering (grandma would not like it, but fit nicely with this salad). Because the restaurant is in the old train depot the high ceilings make it rather loud, sit at the lunch bar so you can... More
