Great brunch!!!

We had a late morning brunch, and loved it. Wife's french toast was very good, and my breakfast burrito was the best I've ever had. Service was slow, but we were in no hurry. Great little breakfast and lunch house!

Not bad but nothing special. We had a small wait for the table but a long wait to order and for the order to arrive.

We went there twice during our stay in West Yellowstone - nice place with a good buzz. The service was good; our waitress was friendly and helpful. The only downer was the fact that substitutions weren't allowed which when catering for a 2 year old is a bit if a pain. All in all, a good breakfast joint.

I ate the omelette and it was the best omelette I have ever had. Is big in size, served with potatoes and breads. I was so satisfied.

This place serves breakfast late. I think until 2:00. So if you are slow going in the morning and want to eat breakfast instead of lunch at 11:00, this would be an excellent choice. The food is great, the portions are huge, and there is a variety to choose from. The staff is pleasant. Don't be turned off by the... More

We ate here for breakfast. The food is good. The coffee is good also. Generous portions. Mid-range pricing. Would definitely go back. I had the breakfast burrito. My husband had the biscuits and gravy.

Really popular and busy, even in late morning. Good breakfast choices, especially the pancakes. Large portions. A bit slow due to the large crowd, but server was attentive and kept the coffee topped up.

Excellent breakfast. There was a 30 minute wait - but even the local people were in line. The food was good - especially the fluffy pancakes.
