We came to Thermopolis for a 4 day mini vacation & planned pretty much everything from Tripadvisor reviews. Today we ate here due to the reviews here on Tripadvisor and it was ok. We were a party of 4 (2 adults, a 3 year old and a 12 year old). I had the basic burger and fries, with their fry... More

This place is awesome. Great staff and delicious food. My coffee cup was never empty, the French toast and bacon was delicious, and we even came back the next morning for round two (eggs Benedict)!

Good food, good prices and very nice staff. Could use a bit of deep cleaning on walls & ceiling, but then this is a very old building and it would be a big task. We will visit again next time we are in the area!

We decided to try this place for breakfast and very much enjoyed it. We were a little worried about the service because of the previous reviews by people. Our service was good with no long waits but they weren't very busy either. Nothing really stood out about the cafe but it was good. Their banana pancakes were good. We would... More

Definitely not a chain. The location, downtown, side street, made it a challenge. Full of locals and visitors. Outstanding breakfast selections all well prepared and served. Also good lunches. Prices reasonable. Free book box!

Totally good - everything. Pancakes, cinnamon rolls, service, chili offerings, bison from a local ranch. Delicious and filling to keep you going through hiking or road trips.

Great breakfast in a cute old building downtown. (You'll have to look a little - it's a block off the main drag). They have an extensive menu with huge servings. Very nice staff with quick service.

I eat here once a month with several others who drive a couple of hours for our monthly gathering. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are large. The owners do some of their own baking and I definitely recommend whatever they have fresh on the day that you arrive. They purify their water so the coffee tastes right.... More

Had great hopes for this restaurant based on previous reviews. We stopped for lunch. I'm gluten-free and was looking for just a basic scramble or egg and meat breakfast item, but most of the choices included so much stuff. . .more than I could possibly eat. I could see by the plates passing our table that the portions were large....so... More

Great food in a cute place. Good service. The burger was really good and cooked to order. Try the home fries.
