As a local resident I have found the Nova Cafe a real great place for breakfast or lunch in downtown Bozeman. They also have great coffee and teas.

Every time I go to Nova I always get the Tom Avo. This time around I branched out and got the Forbidden Hash--DELISH. It was a great vegetarian option and was so filling. New fav!

Response from Serena R | Property representative |
There is no alcohol served at Nova Cafe. With the strict and expensive beer and wine licensing in town, it is a no go. You may try one of the bars or evening places that offers brunch such as Copper, Starkys or Red Chair.
