During our visit to the Museum of the Rockies, we stopped here for lunch break and were really impressed with their selections of cold and hot sandwiches, made with fresh ingredients and their sweet treats and grocery items. Will remember this place!

While I love the ethics and idea behind this restaurant, it is the restaurant I wish I could say I really liked. They prepare food that can be put out through the drive through window and I think this is part of the reason for my lack of awe-it often tastes like it has been reheated in a microwave. While...

Recently, as a visitor to Bozeman, I had to spend a day there waiting for someone to finish an all day meeting. I had my laptop, all I needed was a comfy place to work were I could get some food. Driving in to MSU, I saw Sola and thought it looked inviting. A quick look at TA and Yelp... More

Sola offers homemade foods for breakfast and lunch. The quiche is the best in town - offered with meat, vegie, or gluten free.

I am a local to the bozeman area and have had my fair share of coffee. This place has by far the most expensive coffee in town. Plus they charge you extra to add cream! 50 cents!! They people were very short with me when asking what size I wanted. He asked me while I was saying goodbye to someone... More

Hi Iron-Pony69, Thank you for visiting Sola Cafe and for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize for the poor experience that you had. We do not charge for cream, that definitely should not have happened. We will circle back with our staff and use this as an opportunity to make sure something like this does not happen... More

went here while i was waiting for the museum of the rockies to open. Exceeded my expectations. Private NON STARBUCKS kind of coffee house with more extensive menu. FUnky interior. Coffee was very good. Snacks - cookies, etc. were a little expensive. Also had numerous gourmet items available. I liked it a lot. Would definitely return.

This was a fun place to go in the first years after it opened. It was new and different and in the summer the outdoor patio was great for appetizers and beer or wine. I liked it back then. It no longer has a beer or wine permit so for me that eliminates 5pm social hour with clients or friends.... More

This place is a combination of a café, and a small store selling a few gourmet specialties. There is a full-service cappuccino bar with some interesting, thick cake slices. There is also hot soup. Service was quick and cheerful and the hot drinks were good. The atmosphere is noisy, with music playing, but is light and airy and good for... More
