People rave about tis place being the best breakfast in west Yellowstone. I say NOT! The quality of the food is horrible. Every time I eat here with friends the meats get someone sick. A small glass of orange juice is almost 5$ and doesn't come with refills. This place is a scam! I once asked my server if I... More

This small, out-of-the-way cafe is a true gem in the small town of West Yellowstone. We had breakfast there this morning. Four of us all ordered differently and each of us were positively delighted with our breakfast. The service was friendly, experienced, and efficient. The menu's variety offers something for everyone, and no one will leave either hungry or disappointed.... More

Arrived at 10:30 am on Sunday morning. Waited 10 minutes for a hostess to show up, finally went to ask for one and was basically told to go away. Seated after 20 minutes, waited another 20 for a waitress to notice us, ordered and food came another 20 minutes later. Had to get up myself and go to wait station... More

The portions are welcomingly out of control and the staff is disarmingly sweet! My husband we're looking for good down home country restaurants that we could bring out tinies to and... More

Very warm and cosy breakfast / lunch restaurant. Staff makes you feel at home. Lunch boxes (to takeaway when visiting the NP) are very good (and convenient!!).

The place was crowded but we were seated quickly. They had me at “Good Morning”. Best buttermilk pancakes I have had ever—sorry Mom. I had the 2 egg breakfast with 3 small pancakes. I was expecting 3 dollar sized cakes but these beauties were each as wide as the plate. The huckleberry syrup should be patented…delicious. We went there every... More

The food and service are excellent. All the locals eat there. Its clean. I have visited YNP and West Yellowstone many times was not aware of this place because it is not on the main road. I will always eat there when I return.

We ate breakfast there several times and tried different items which were all excellent. Got there early before the crowds and service was great. The "Grizzly Bear" will fill you up for a long day of hiking and exploring.

This was just a few minutes walk from our great vacation rental (Eagles's Nest house through Homeaway) so we loved the convenience, but it was great that the food was fresh and good too. We had breakfast a couple of days and lunch once, the service was very fast and friendly. It is a busy place with all kinds of... More
