The barrista (Wyatt) is outstanding. Makes a great cappuccino, to go with an excellent meal in a friendly atmosphere.

Loved the forbidden hash breakfast. The server looked and sounded like he wanted to be anywhere but at work. Couldn't muster a smile or friendly gesture the entire meal. Tip reflected this.

This is hands down the best breakfast spot in Bozeman. I almost don't want to say the previous statement, but I'm afraid most already know.
