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.

I came here for breakfast with some old friends, upon their suggestion. The food was great- I had the banana bread French toast. The server was okay- a little slow. As we were finishing breakfast, she came over and informed us that a line was...forming and we should consider leaving soon. I found that to be incredibly rude. Of course we left right away. I wasn't impressed, and won't be back.More

Did a little research and the Cateye came up with good reviews. We walked from our hotel and almost passed it by as it is upstairs and the front entrance is easy to miss. No wait, even though the space is not huge. Coffee was...hot and good, staff was pleasant and efficient and the food was excellent. Will go back when in the area.More

I’m sorry to say that out of the four breakfast restaurants I tried in Bozeman (Jam, Main Street Overeasy, Western Café, and Cateye Café), this one was my least favorite. The service was a 5/10 and the food was a 5/10. Not only are there...better service options in the area, but there are tastier food options as well. Nothing about the experience stood out to me as being able to compete with the other (better) options Bozeman has to offer. My experience wasn’t a bad one, but it surely wasn’t competitive.More

I got to the Cateye Cafe right as they opened the doors and was greeted by the solo server (one lady was back in the kitchen). I ordered the Felix to-go and looked around while they got to work on my order. It took about...ten minutes for my order to come out and I was on my way. The Felix is a Sammy with a fried egg, crispy prosciutto, Gouda, spinach and red pepper aioli. It was delicious and really hit the spot. The fried egg was a little overcooked for my tasting. The sandwich was well seasoned and bigger than I expected. It also came with roasted potatoes but I didn’t like them. I’m not sure how they were seasoned but it wasn’t to my taste. All the same a good meal and very filling.More

We stopped based on the recommendation of someone we had met in our travels and were quite happy we did! Eclectic little spot with great food and for an added bonus we were treated to hot gingerbread before our breakfast arrived which was delicious!

This place is a Bozeman icon. I hadn’t been here in years b/c there are so many other places we like to visit. I met a friend for brunch here and remembered why I liked it so much in years past. The food is excellent...home style prepared w/ fresh ingredients and clever names to the menu items. We both had the French toast. I don’t usually order French toast in a restaurant b/c it’s never dipped enough to soak in the egg mixture. This was perfect and yummy! The bread was thick sweet bread. It had great flavor and texture. We agreed we would not wait so long to visit again. Friendly staff, busy kitchen runs like a well oiled machine. If you love Cats or just seriously good breakfast/ lunch foods, you must visit this restaurant. They have recently added an outdoor patio for more dining space in nice weather. It’s got a Cat collection extravaganza everywhere you look. A fun atmosphere for family or friends. Be hungry when you go, large tasty portions delivered to your table and attentive service. Most of the staff have been there for years. Sugar was our great server , she was very accommodating w/ my friends requests to have butter and fruit sauce on the side.More

Had a group of 7 late on a Tuesday morning and waited for a few minutes but not bad. Had great service and enjoyed a truly wonderful breakfast. Was difficult to decide from the unique items but settled on The Felix breakfast sandwich. Delicious, fried...egg, prosciutto, gouda on a perfectly toasty roll. Our group had various items and our well traveled Texan remarked that it was the best sausage and gravy he'd had all trip (and he'd had it 4 times!).More

Great location in downtown Bozeman. Very small and intimate restaurant. Excellent choices and a huge mimosa menu. Great coffee and generous portions. Small but well worth the wait!

Not worth the wait. The wait staff was rude and literally pushed us out the door. There are ways to still be kind to the customer to help move tables along when there is a wait line.

The atmosphere inside is cat filled and festive. I wish they will buy a new kitty clock. The menu offers so many unique breakfast items and many healthy items, too. The staff is all so nice. Be patient and try to wait outside...it's worth the...wait!More

We’ve visited Bozeman several times and wanted to come here but were hesitant because of the constant crowd of people waiting. The waitlist goes quick, the service & food fabulous. Everything was perfectly cooked and flavored. Love the theme!

Great little cafe for lunch in downtown Bozeman! We found this cafe quite by accident which made it a fun find. It reminded us of cafes in downtown Lawrence, KS which is also a college town (University of KS). The staff was friendly and the...food was delicious!More
