Cateye is the perfect place for a cozy, distinctive breakfast. The upstairs space just off Main Street is intimate, and tables can be at a premium, but any wait is well-rewarded by the restaurant's signature banana-bread French toast. It's out of this world!

Hands down the worst breakfast I have ever had in Bozeman, ever. Our server not only had amnesia, but when she had brief recovery periods, she also had Tourette's. Putting red hot sauce over a perfectly fine green sauce is just plain stupid. Nothing was hot, the coffee was oily and awful, and no thanks, I'll not be returning. Ever.

This place is amazing, it is very small there is usually always a wait but it is so worth it. I highly recommend the banana bread French toast, it is the best French toast I have ever had!

Had a great omelette here. The atmosphere is kinda quirky, with rules listed on the wall and a loud, brunchy vibe. Every time I come it's super busy and takes a while to be seated, but the wait is usually worth it.

Love love love the Cateye. Foods excellent, always have a hard time picking what to get, because everything sounds great! Love the 'catnip' sauce on the banana bread French toast. Usually get the Greek scramble which is phenomenal. Portions are perfect size, no leftovers. Which can be good and bad, because you just want to keep eating despite being full!... More

The Cateye Cafe, is just off main street and serves both breakfast and lunch. We had lunch, soup and half a sandwich. The soup, clam chowder, was excellent and the bat sandwich, had a generous serving of of bacon, lettuce and tomatoes! The server was friendly, helpful and made the experience complete.

This little restaurant is a great place to get a hearty breakfast. If you are an egg lover this place is great. It also has a very extensive menu, something for everyone. I will definitely be going back next time in town!

It took me four tries to get into the Cateye Café. It is a very popular place to eat breakfast and lunch so go planning on a little bit of a wait. The food is worth the wait. The atmosphere is quirky and decorated with cats and comforting colors. The service is good and you can eat breakfast until they... More

This cafe was so unique inside! The food was great. The meat in the breakfast burrito had such great flavor. The staff was very attentive and friendly! Would definitely return.

Used to be the old telephone building back in the day. Service is great. Everything is geared around cats. It is very eclectic looking. Food is very different. I had the Greek scramble w eggs, olives, spinach, feta cheese and sin dried tomatoes. Amazing. They also have gluten free bread options. Small place, the wait is a little longer. We... More
