We have tried going here before but it was always filled and long lines waiting. They serve breakfast and lunch and it reminds you of being in a small town with all of the great homemade food available. Service was friendly and prompt and the four in our group had no complaints whatsoever!

The food here is amazing. It is a friendly family owned cafe that brings back memories of my small hometown. It is loud in there but that is because they are always busy! The prices for the amount of food you get is exceptional! Love it here!

While it's not much to look at from the outside, the inside was cozy and full of people who must know how great the food is! The waitresses were friendly and efficient. Even tho the place was packed, our food came quickly and was great. No skimpy little piece of Canadian bacon on the Eggs Benedict! Here you get nicely... More

Hey, it's a café in Bozeman, so don't expect tablecloths and silverware! But if you're looking for local Montana color, and you've got a big appetite, the Western will fit the bill quite nicely. Terrific food (and lots of it!), including the super-tasty cinnamon roll-French toast, served by friendly and charming folks. Don't miss out!

My personal breakfast favorite! It has a wonderful local feel, great prices and fast service. They are often busy as with most breakfast joints in town but worth the wait!

I simply cannot be in Bozeman without going to the Western Cafe! The food is great and the cafe has such character.

This visit was leaps and bounds better than the previous time I've been here. The overall experience was just so refreshing. The food was amazing and the service exemplary. And, since it was the end of the day, we recieved free coffee and lucious lemon pie. The Western Cafe was sublime.

I have eaten at this restaurant on and off for over 25 years. I quit going a number of years ago because of the very poor disorganized service. I swore that I would never eat there again. Against my better judgement a vendor who I do business with wanted to take me and a few others to the Western for... More

This restaurant food and service is the way a restaurant should be. Old fashion and great. Be sure to try breakfast and lunch the wait is worth it on the weekend.

The staff was incredibly friendly and made you feel very welcome. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. The restaurant itself is very cute and embodies the spirit of Montana well.
