We always enjoy Ernie's while we are visiting West for a week of snowmobiling. Matt and Caroline make you feel welcome along with offering new suggestions on food choices. The croissants are great along with everything else!

Had their turkey and ham club to-go, generous with the meats, very filling sandwich. Sneaking suspicion they provide the box lunches on the Rendezvous snowmobile tours! Boyfriend got the veggie sandwich, which was supposed to include "all the fixins" but wound up with only olives and onions somehow. Must have been a misunderstanding

This place was recommended to us as a good place to get food to go for lunch later in Yellowstone. We ordered 2 of the sack lunches that came with sandwich, chips, a cookie, piece of candy, and a drink. We ordered our sandwiches and made sure to tell the guy no cheese and no onions on anything. We were... More

I am sorry to read that you were not happy with your experience at Ernie's. Our box lunch option is made to be delivered quickly and to offer a good deal; therefore some items are pre packed (for example the condiments: lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions in a small package on the side) and we can't offer the choice for...

Good selections, good prices, and ready when we were. Staff was helpful and provided good alternative selections when we didn't first see what we wanted.

We stopped at Ernie's for our last breakfast in West Yellowstone and wish we'd gone sooner. They offer a delicious maple bacon donut that has a perfect balance of salty and sweet. The huge maple cinnamon bun is not to be missed. Ernie's also offers a big boxed lunch (create-your-own sandwich, drink, apple, cookie, candy, chips) for only $10.95, which... More

On recommendation of a couple we met in the parking lot of our motel in West Yellowstone, we went to Ernie's for box lunch before heading to Yellowstone. Great choice of several meats, several cheeses, several types of bread. For drink we could have water or soda. Lunch also included cookie, candy, chips and fruit. Sandwich was so big that... More

Bakery was fresh and tasty, although limited selection being a bit out of busy season. Cappuccino was good although the barista wasn't familiar with a dry cappuccino.

We stopped here for breakfast treats and box lunches before touring Yellowstone NP. The maple cinnamon rolls, orange cinnamon rolls, sticky buns w/nuts, and ham box lunches were all we tried and all were delicious and reasonably priced. Super quick service with friendly counter staff who will nuke your pastries if you ask.
