My favorite part of the meal was the coffee, a regionally-roasted variety way tastier than most stuff I find in restaurant cups. The veg omelet was fine, with mushrooms cooked just right, and the toast is made with homemade bread. I happen to like the quirky comfy décor, mismatched chairs and all the rest - it's friendly rather than fancy.... More

Read about Pinky's and decided to give it a try. Our group had the Huevos Rancheros w/Pork Carnitas, Waffle Benny and Huevos Benedict and they were all great! Very good food and friendly service! We would definitely go back.

Stopped in for a late breakfast early lunch. The lunch menu was limited to 4 uninspiring items so we had breakfast. Nothing special and very expensive for what you get.

Portion size is slightly decreased from last time I was there, maybe due to new ownership? They still offer quality food in a nice atmosphere. Indoor seating may be limited during busy times.

Amazing little cafe. Homemade bread, hollandaise, farm fresh eggs. I could go on and on. Vanessa treated us like family and informed us of all the events and activities in Livingston.

So much GREAT food to choose from at Pinky's. Everyone in your group will be able to find something that'll put a smile on their face. Great location downtown. Friendly service. Morgan (the chef) is awesome.

Just stopped in Livingston for a late breakfast. Just took a a shot in the dark on pinky's. Had a carnitas omelet, it was great and the coffee was above average. The place appears to be a locals hangout. Service was also very good. No ambiance, but good food.

Very small Cafe, good food ($$) and good service, convenient location in downtown Livingston, Montana. On street parking can be a bit of a problem at certain times of the day, but usually not a problem for early morning breakfast.

Ate here when we stopped overnight on a cross country trip. Vanessa, our server, was super nice and personable. All four of us enjoyed our breakfast. I had the hash special with egg, spinach, feta, roasted pepper, smoked sausage, and asparagus, and it was legit one of the best breakfasts I've ever eaten. I'm not sure life will take me... More

We picked Pinky's based on the TA reviews, but where underwhelmed. The food was average. The decor unimpressive. If it was a small town in Montana, I would understand. But Livingston can do better with all the visitors passing through.

Thank Richard R
