My husband and I ate here a number of times while visiting Bozeman the last week of July. Service is a bit slow when the restaurant is packed. Great omelets and flakey biscuits. Good comfort food.

We visited on a busy Sunday Morning. The wait was short, the service was excellent and the food fantastic! I recommend the chicken fried steak with gravy! My daughters had cinnamon bun French toast and hash. All very good

We chose this bustling place for breakfast, and we are so glad we did. The food is homemade. The service was excellent. It reminds me of a traditional diner. I would highly recommend.

We had lunch at the Western cafe, I would highly recommend it as lomg as you are not in a big hurry because it takes a while to be seated and served. We were there on a Saturday and it was really busy, food was great.

This is a fun, throw back in time, cafe that is very popular. The food is good. The biscuits and gravy were excellent per my husband. I am a more healthy eater and found the eggs with veggies to be very good. My husband got the cinnamon roll--holy cow it was HUGE! Definitely worth going to!

This was our first stop in Bozeman and it was the right choice!! Filled with local memorabilia, super friendly people and amazing food. You've got to get the chicken fried steak for breakfast!!

Stopped for lunch today just walking by and deciding to give it a try. Down home and lots of locals. Interior is decorated with historic photos of Bozeman that are fun to look at while eating. Service is good and the servings are generous And tasty. We will be back here again.

Been getting breakfast here since 1983. Best breakfast in town. Great downtown environment. Great service. Get one of the the omelettes.

They must be good if they were not seat inside, so we sat outside. Our waitress put two tables together since there were 7 of us. Service was great and the food came out quickly. We all enjoyed our breakfast and the portions are large. I would come back.
