I own a business in West Yellowstone Montana and always send my customers to the Smokejumper Cafe. I love the GF options.

Interesting location at the very small West Yellowstone airport. Nice atmosphere. The real treat though is the food and the number of gluten free offerings. James has a strong understanding of cross contamination issues and goes to great lengths to ensure that all gluten free food is safe for those who cannot eat gluten. Dedicated appliances and work areas make... More

Very aware of gluten free and cross contamination. James is the head everything. Had the fish and chips it is the best I have had in a long time. You would not know it was gluten free if did not know it, James custom mixes his own flours.

We stopped after a long morning of driving for a late lunch/early dinner. Wide variety menu. Everyone was satisfied with their order. Don't miss the lobster bisque: perfectly seasoned with generous chunks of meat. Tuna melt was delicious. Thumbs up on the grilled chicken sandwich and steak sandwich from teenagers. Husband said burger was ok. Service was friendly and beer... More

Not too far a drive from town to the airport, to enjoy a unique restaurant with great sandwiches. I had the regular chicken sandwich, while the wife had the buffalo chicken. The included fries were excellent. Great old time aviation photos adorn the walls.

We were out exploring the area and used the Yelp app to find a place. The #1 pick was Smokejumper Cafe. Located next to the Yellowstone Airport, we were pleasantly surprised by this small cafe. Sandwiches were good and filling and everything is made fresh each day. We missed out on the last cup of lobster bisque by a few... More

Had the lobster eggs Benedict and the smoke jumper bomb. Best meal we have had so far. Hidden gem! Worth the short drive out of town. Nice quiet delicious breakfast.

Just a 5-minute drive from the heart of West Yellowstone, this was the best meal of our trip to YNP. The fish & chips were excellent with thick pieces of white flaky fish in a homemade seasoned batter that was perfectly light and crispy. My husband and child also raved about their cheeseburgers. The prices were very reasonable for the... More

This place is north of town at the airport. I flew in around lunch time and had a great meal sitting in the sun on their little patio. My lobster roll was delicious and after my husband had a bite, declared we would be back. So a few days later on a drizzly afternoon we had lunch inside near the... More
