You can shop for books and other items while taking a few minutes to have a bite to eat. Interesting place.

Got lunch to go for 4 going into the park. Excellent and went back for a salad for my wife, also rated great. Do not be put off by the granola vibe, these folk know food.

Eclectic bookstore that brews great coffee and makes breakfast burritos, bagels, etc to order. I had a burrito that was freshly handmade and my wife had a sun dried tomato bagel which she absolutely loved. Also free wifi in a friendly atmosphere..can't go wrong.

We had breakfast here this morning after trawling around town trying to find somewhere serving breakfast early on a Monday. The place we were staying didn't provide breakfast and the only restaurant we found serving breakfast was somewhat expensive for what was on offer. Tumbleweeds offers simple breakfast (burritos, sandwiches, muffins, bagels with eggs and ham etc) and hot drinks... More

Stopped in on the wayout of Yellowstone. We had a couple cups of coffee and the soup of the day. Very nice environment. Free WiFi and a nice selection of books. Would have loved to stay longer but had to get on the road! @jasminemroyce

Food and coffee were excellent, I bought several books on the area, and postcards created by local artists. Free wifi to catch up on work as well, dogs aloud on the outside deck.
