Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I are frequent visitors to Bozeman, every time we come through town, we have breakfast here. This place has always had great service and food. Best breakfast in Bozeman area hands down, my opinion.

The Western Cafe is a great representative of the friendly non-chain small town atmosphere found in many establishment’s along Bozeman’s robust Main Street. The Cafe is clearly a local favorite loaded with many tables, a long counter, Montana Kitsch, tasty pies and a trusty green...Hamilton Beach milkshake machine. The staff is fast and friendly. Their burgers are good, cooked to order and come with tons of condiments and decent fries. If you’re into trying places that aren’t the same as the ones in your hometown, the Western Cafe is worth a visit.More

We have just returned from 9 days in Yellowstone and Grand Teton. We flew into Bozeman and our very first stop was to drive to the Western Cafe for breakfast/lunch for our party of five. The place was hopping. They were clearly very busy. Food...was good. Service was a little inattentive on our drinks but we could see they were busy. Glad we went there and we would go again.More

Good food good service good location and late breakfast. Parking isn’t the easiest but if you are worried about parking then avoid Main Street entirely. Will definitely be back

Highs: decent breakfast sandwich and decent biscuits & gravy. Food was hot and seemed fresh. Lows: 30 minute wait to be seated. $3 coffee bad tasting and only filled my cup 3/4 full and they never refilled it, come on it’s breakfast keep the coffee...coming! Very loud atmosphere, overworked staff. And worst of all there were flies everywhere. I’ve been here before, it’s really gone downhill. Flies were absolutely disgusting, totally unacceptable, sadly we will never return.More

Love this dive old school western diner like restaurant that just keeps serving up hot and delicious food. The decor is cowboy and the servers are fast and friendly. It’s at the end of the Main Street hustle and bustle so a little bit of...a walk from the heart of Bozeman, but certainly walkable and well worth it. Go early because it is not that big and the locals and the tourists alike all love it! VictorBMore

Very good food and neat eatery. Only breakfast-all-day and lunch. We went during lunchtime and had a 30min wait. It's definitely known. Server was great, food was better. Local place had a bunch of different ranch brands on every wall, really neat.

A great Montana breakfast experience. A delicious breakfast, reasonably priced, outstanding Montana decor, efficient and friendly service. We drove from Big Timber (beautiful drive) especially to have breakfast here. We loved it and hope to come back one day.

My burger was ruined. Asked for medium rare, got medium well. Why ask if you can’t cook it right? Wife liked her omelette. Hash browns could have been done more. Interesting place with lots of things to look at. Server seemed more busy with cleanup...and restocking than actual service. Never checked back with us.More

Do yourself a favor and grab a meal here. Stopped in on our way to Big Sky. Enjoyed a really good burger (mushroom swiss). Amanda the waitress was awesome. They get busy and there’s a bit of wait, so make sure you go on a...nice day, as the waiting area is our front on the sidewalk! Most diners were enjoying breakfast, which looked great.More
