“Best Breakfast in Bozeman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

Located in the heart of the Main Street downtown Bozeman shopping and business area do not pass up the chance to visit this breakfast oasis. The ingredients are al locally sourced. The omelets are large and filling. The eggs benedict are devine and the hollandaise sauce does not overpower the eggs and ham. THe french toast is hearty with just the right amount of crrspiness on the outside and succulently soft on the inside. The bacon was cooked to perfection, crispy and well done-not overdone or soft and chewy. THis is a great place to start your day exploring Montana around the Bozeman/Big Sky area.

“Great Sandwiches & Service”

This is our 3rd visit to Nova and the service is consistently great. The lunch menu has a reasonable variety of choices and the sandwiches we chose were delicious and good value.

“Delicious and very fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We loved our whole experience at Nova. The food was excellent from beginning to end (fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, portobello mushroom wrap, meatloaf sandwich, even the coffee were all wonderful). The wait staff was helpful, fun and knowledgeable. Highly recommended, a great stop in Bozeman!

“Excellent food, friendly atmosphere, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

During a recent vacation, and from a Tripadvisor review, my wife and I decided to have breakfast at The Nova Cafe. Clearly, the Cafe is a local favorite with very good food. Since we had a short wait the restaurant offered us a variety of coffees and a seat at their coffee house in the next room. After a very short wait we were seated and provided a menu containing a wide variety of offerings. The restaurants focuses on providing organic foods from local suppliers. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Western Omelettes, delivered in a timely fashion. Throughout the meal our waitress was very attentive without being overbearing.

If you enjoy organic food from local suppliers in a friendly atmosphere go to the Nova Cafe.

“Always pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

It is always a good experience here. Food is very good, staff is friendly and attentive without being annoying. The remodel is nice. I like that if there is a long wait you can order your drinks in the grab and go area "Nova-a-go-go" and have a seat in the waiting area there while enjoying your drink of choice and they will just put it on your regular bill.

I have to admit there are some disappointments in the menu changes. I really liked some of the lunch-type sandwiches that were removed from the menu.
