This is the best location in West for breakfast and lunch with a diner style menu. Breakfast served until they close at 2pm. Good choices for daily breakfast and lunch specials. A family run business with a friendly staff.

Love this restaurant...everything they make is fabulous. My son especially loves the Peach Pancakes which are as big as his head. Only drawback to this place, they are only open until 2pm.

great eggs, but poor service, our wait staff spoke very little English could not understand what she was talking about or she understood our order.

Excellent food and unique menu items. A very busy place and probably not your best choice unless you have ample time, but it's worth it and you will NOT go away hungry.

Great locals hangout with incredible breakfast. I highly recommend the pancakes. I'm a big eater, and I couldn't eat more than two. Everything is cooked to order and delicous!

The breakfast was served quickly with friendly servers. The portions were very generous and the pricing was a value. The food was very tasty and cooked properly. The restaurant was very clean and has a family atmosphere. I go to Yellowstone every year and in the future I will include this restraint as one of my eating places.
