The Northern Pacific Beanery located in Livingston, Montana, is a great place to eat. I try to go there for Breakfast a couple of times a month. Keep in mind I am driving 20 miles to get there and Bozeman where I live has many great places to eat. The atmosphere is really nice with lots of Railroad prints and... More

This place is the one restaurant we went back to again. History, atmosphere, and service were all there. There is always fresh pies. The waitresses do not know the lunch specials at breakfast, because "the cook is still deciding". Fresh cooked food, pretty pies, and friendly staff. It was not the best restaurant food I have had, but for what... More

We were looking for a place to have a late lunch while traveling through town. What a gem the Beanery is. We had their Sunday lunch special which included a free piece of pie. One of us had a turkey dinner with stuffing and mashed potatoes and the other had a roast beef dinner. Both dinners were served with wonderful... More

We stopped in Livingston for lunch on the way to Yellowstone and this was the first place we found. Built in part of the old rail station, it looks nothing special when you walk in but the staff are very friendly and there were lots of locals eating who were obviously well known to the staff. My wife had a... More

Good breakfast but no espresso drinks - staff did encouraged us to bring our coffee drinks from shops across the street. Service was good but fairly slow given the few number of people in the restaurant. The space has been nicely renovated but furnished with standard diner tables and chairs.

I had a wonderful omelet breakfast with my son. The owners wife was just lovely and friendly. We were seated promptly and served coffee and water fast. Our order was taken fast and our food came within a reasonable time even though they were busy. The food was good and fresh. I would definitely come back again!

Hooray! The Northern Pacific Beanery has gotten its groove back. The long-time owners from several years ago have now returned to operate the restaurant... and it's returning to its former glory -- reliable, tasty, flavorful comfort food that we used to know and love. Their fish & chips (haddock) are terrific, as is their Asian slaw. They were very busy... More
