We went here for breakfast. The “hostess” could not have been ruder. Since there was a single in front of us, she decided she needed to make a wait list. I said okay, put us down and we will be back in a couples of...minutes. When we came back, she had an opening so sat the single. Then she came to us and said she would have to start a wait list. I told her she already had and we were next. There was a table clearing, and that should be ours. She said she didn’t remember us and that we would have to be on the wait list. The other server told us to go and sit. Tables would open up and it would take 10 minutes to clean, clean and seat customers. The food was not very good. Eggs were cold. Potatoes were also cold. They forgot the orange juice. The one server who sat us was lovely. Tourism is the life blood of this city. They need lessons in hospitality management.More

Ate here with my friends one early morning before heading to Yellowstone Park. Staff was friendly and attentive. The food arrived in a reasonable time. The food was delicious. We will definitely come back again.

The food was meh but the server was awful. Never smiled, asked what we wanted, when I questioned a menu item she told me to "pick off" what I didn't want, she also never checked back after we got the food. When she took the...plates mine was full because I didn't eat my food and she never asked if everything was ok. She then brought the check and my guest and I put our credit cards down and they were charged immediately. Then the server asked us how long we were going to be there because they had a waiting list at the door. Extremely unprofessional, extremely impolite. I am a local and I will NEVER return to this place.More

This is an easy walk from Murray Hotel. We had a ham and cheese omelette with whole grain toast. It was delicious and well made. Staff was friendly and attentive. Decor was tasteful and well done. We will return!

In all fairness I was going to eat at another place but it didn't open until 8 so we came here. We came in and seated ourselves at a small table. The place really doesn't have any kind of charm inside and felt rather sterile....I usually pick the greasy spoons for a good breakfast. I ordered the Bird Float Breakfast, which was eggs potatoes, meat and toast. It was ok, nothing special just ok.. My wife ordered the Biscuits and Gravy that were pretty much flavorless. I think they should visit the deep south and experience a real B&G. Our server Ashlee was attentive and good as she was the only one working at the time. All in all the norm for what I have had in Montana.More

Sorry for the delay in posting this review. A crashed hard drive, misplaced travel notes and life got in the way. We had breakfast here on August 3, 2020. The breakfast menu has plenty of options for all. A vegetarian has good options. Service was...friendly and efficient. Erik had the Brid Float Breakfast and Cheryl had the Mediterranean scramble. The food arrived in a reasonable time. It was well presented. The food was quite tasty and plentiful. Quite a nice breakfast experience.More

Stopped here for lunch and were happy with the good food. It was prrsented nicely, too. The service was fast but not rushed. Such a pretty town overall as well. Would definitely recommend!

I am surprised on how misleading the reviews on Tripadvisor can be about this place. The food was terrible, undercooked, flavorless, overpriced and low quality. In one word a turist trap.

great service and staff! We where in a hurry and they accommodated us and told us what was fast to make or what would take the longest. They were very busy but our food arrived fast and it was delicious!

Super cool little cafe in downtown Livingston. Freshest food ever! Great service to boot. Hope to return from Texas one day.
