“Great Spot.”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

We stopped for a brunch lunch after a few days at Big Sky. Had to wait for a bit to get a table (a good sign.) Friendly staff, good food. Liked the whole groove of the place. Good salsa, but I was bummed that my potatoes weren't fully cooked in my breakfast burrito. Make sure you have them add the black bean chili. Yum!

“Breakfast worth the wait”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Had frittata at servers suggest had jalapeños and avocado included. It had potato and several kinds of cheese inside. Super! Wife had waffle with cream cheese she loved it so much refused to share any with me. They provided fresh coffee and tea to us while we waited for our table. Expect at least half hour wait unless you get there early.

“Best breakfast ever.”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

My wife, daughter, and I had a Sunday morning breakfast at the Nova Café. This restaurant puts a twist on the usual breakfast fare. My wife had banana bread French toast. Our daughter had blue corn pancakes. I had the best white cheddar and breakfast meats omelet. Everything was great including the service. We fully recommend this restaurant.

“45 minute wait to be SEATED for breakfast Saturday and Sunday”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Trendy local place, very good food, expensive, noisey, great downtown location, crowded for larger groups. 45 minute wait to be seated on weekends for breakfast & definitely not a good option for families with young children
