This place was recommended by the locals and it was very good. Homemade everything! I had the breakfast tacos and they were very good!

Our party of four tried delicious cinnamon rolls, scrambles, breads and muffins. We were wishing they had dinner because breakfast was so delicious. We spent $42 there getting bags of goodies to go.,

Friendly staff, a little chaotic when it comes to ordering at the counter - but everything is SUPER tasty! Not a whole lot of variety and it probably sells out really fast, but it's absolutely worth a peek if they're open!

The breakfast sandwiches and coffee were amazing. You must try the pastries and cinnamon rolls too. The staff was so friendly. We just wished we would have had more opportunities to eat here on our stay.

Great breakfast, great pastries to take along for later in the trip through Yellowstone, and great people. Definitely a must-stop when you're passing through Cooke City.

They open at 5 am during the summer. Great place to pick up wonderful pastries before going into Yellowstone. They also serve breakfast starting at 6am, but we are always gone by that time, though we've heard from others that their breakfast is fantastic!

Perfect little top notch bakery that opens early enough to get your morning brew. They open at 5 a.m., which was perfect as we were headed to Yellowstone early morning. Between the blackberry muffin and lemon pastry( we think it was a scone), we wish...More

That will probably be our last week open for the season.
Just responding to your response. We came in when you were open in the middle of the morning before 8:30 on July 17. It was just disappointing.

Sorry about your experience. Not sure what the problem was, but as the others stated, we had a great breakfast and very good service...even when it did get a little busier. Hope you will give The Bear Claw Bakery another try... More
