This restaurant has been in existence for 100 years! It's a community favorite and hard to get a seat, sometimes have to wait 10 to 15 minutes, but the wait is worth it. I haven't eaten anything here that I didn't like. Huge pancakes and...More

The service and food was amazing! Our waitress was energetic and very helpful! I ordered the Country Fried Steak and it was the best I've ever had! Fresh eggs and hashbrowns with homemade sausage gravy. I was asked if I wanted more gravy mid meal,...More

A classic old school diner. The food is great and service is friendly. Outdoor seating in the summertime and quick service year round. Lots of coffee refills and giant omelettes to be had.

The Western is the place to go if you are looking for that "Down Home" country cooking feel... Fantastic Biscuits and gravy, chicken fried steak, etc for breakfast, and then good burgers and such lunches.... Topped off with delicious home made pies!

Friendly service, good prices, lots on your plate. Great local place. Definitely a homemade breakfast not to miss when in Bozeman. Nothing fancy, just good! Want to try the cinnamon roll on next visit.

While not fancy, the decor is kind of Western/outdoorsy and interesting. You won't find a better place for breakfast/lunch than the Western Cafe. The food is great and you can't beat the prices and quantity of food that you get. Service can be a little...More
