Lovely, charming place with an atmosphere of home. So nice to see a bookstore combined with a place to have breakfast! The 3 women who worked in it were helpful and distinct individuals who made us feel right at home!

Such a cute store! They have hand made and recycled books and scrapbooks, along with hand made jewelry. The sandwiches and coffee are great. Alsop, there is a Groupon you can use!

We just stopped in for a quick snack, and it worked out perfectly. The servers were good and friendly and our food was terrific. No problems here.

We are very happy to see you returned to our little store so often during your stay in Gardiner. It is always our goal to bring folks back which is often hard when people are just passing through on their way to Yellowstone. Thank you for being such a faithful customer. We hope to see you again on your next... More

We stopped in this quaint little bookstore to grab breakfast. First think you need to know, is it's primarily breakfast sandwiches, bagels, etc. Everything was delicious - especially the bagels and coffee. The wait staff was super sweet and very helpful.

We ate breakfast there and got wraps to go for a picnic in Yellowstone. We watched as the cook made our food in a normal kitchen. Everything was fresh, the potatoes were fresh grated for the hash browns and all was made right there. The mexican breakfast wrap was awesome and the lunch wrap hours later was incredible! Great service... More

Really enjoyed this quaint cafe in Gardiner. We sat outside on the patio on this beautiful day and enjoyed delicious coffee and breakfast burritos. There wasn't a large variety of breakfast items to choose from, but what they offered was yummy. Also great for a quick bite if you are on the go. We saw many locals here. (good sign!)

I like the funky, homelike atmosphere here. Inexpensive and tasty food, books, quality gifts, and friendly staff. And, Cyrus the resident dog!
