Food and coffee were excellent, I bought several books on the area, and postcards created by local artists. Free wifi to catch up on work as well, dogs aloud on the outside deck.

Stopped here on our first full day in Yellowstone for a quick breakfast. We had tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and personal service. I asked for jam with my croissant and they cut it and half and spread the jelly themselves. I had a great conversation with a staff member from my home state and left with a full belly and... More

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 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.

Thank Rhonda R
