My husband and I have been spending time in Livingston for the past four years. We hadn't noticed Pinky's but recently saw a clip on the Food Network. Expecting a squat and gobble breakfast, I was pleasantly mistaken. We arrived just at close, but the waitress allowed us to stay, warning us of the closing time for future reference. Last to be seated, we were last to leave. The two waitresses were cleaning and setting up. A young man came out to the cash register and asked how we enjoyed the meal. We were effusive in our praise. It turned out this personable, unassuming young man is the new owner of Pinky's. His credentials are impressive: chef at Chico's. And even more impressive is that much of the food is produced at the family ranch north of Billings. The bread is homemade by his mother as well as the jam. My husband had a waffle with a side of sausage patties. I had the buttermilk pancakes. The pancakes may have been the best I have ever tasted. They were not overly cakey, and they had a hint of egg like a crepe. The maple syrup was a high grade. My husband was equally happy with his breakfast. The orange juice was truly freshly squeezed. The dishes had a lovely garnish of fresh fruit. The new owner said his signature
breakfast was Eggs Benedict with the real deal Hollandaise sauce. We will be back!
