“Need a cup? Nice change from Starbuck's”
Review of Chadz

We were passing through Livingston on a bicycle trip. My friend had been to Chadz before so we made a special detour for our morning coffee. Funky and friendly decor - definitely not Starbuck's. Good service and great coffee.

I have given this place so many chances to redeem itself. It has failed on all counts.

If you read some of the reviews from the locals, they enjoy the place.
It's their local hangout and meeting place. They can have it.
But as a traveler, you want and should expect a little more in a coffee house.

Atmos:
Tacky. Unclean. Unorganized.
The clerk even admitted to me that they put out whatever they can find at the
thrift shop.
Bohemian wannabe's.

Cleanliness:
Every table was filthy! Coffee stains. Food stains Highly unsanitary.
I had to ask the person behind the counter for a towel to wipe off my table.
He handed me the towel that was hanging off his back pocket.
I used water from the water pitcher to clean my table.

The bathroom:
GROSS!!!
No toilet paper.
No paper towel to wipe your hands on.
One very dirty, EMPTY soap bottle.
(Which gave me pause...I hope the kitchen staff had full washing supplies before handling food.)

Menu:
On chalk board behind main counter.
Difficult to read.
Not organized.
Not even clever.

Food:
Coffee was alright.
It took a very long time to prepare my sandwich.
No care in prep.
Sandwich was bland.

Music:
I had to ask the clerk TWICE to turn the music down.
Much to loud.
And I'm a music lover.

And can we talk about the flies???

Service:
Very haphazard.
Waited a long time to put order in and then receive order.
Approx. wait-time from order to delivery at table: 20 min.

Travelers...there are other coffee shoppes. Pass this one by.
Let the flies have it.

Drive to Wild Joe's in Bozeman.
Only 20 miles more down the road.
Their espresso drinks are superb.
And the atmos. much more conducive to lounging about.

Great service...plenty of space. The breakfast pizza was wonderful as we're the bagels! Chad and his wife were both there the day we ate at Chads...charming!

Needs updating! Coffee was fine, but the decor was horrible. Thrift store furniture was not what I wanted to sit on.

Our favorite coffee shop in Livingston. It is a good place to kick back on a cold winter morning. The food was good too. We liked the seats and laid back atmosphere.
