While visiting YSN, we took a easy day and came here for coffee. It was a Monday in Mid September, there weren't that many choices for coffee at the time. The place was quiet with a few customers inside and on the patio. The three people worked there were very friendly. We each had hand crafted coffee, peanut butter and Jam pie for me and huckleberry ice cream for hubby. Everything tasted great. I'd recommend the ice cream even I just had couples of spoonful. The peanut butter snack was very flavorful.
As for books, most of them were YSN themed and there weren't that many selections.
But there were lots of free condoms in the bathroom.
Areas needed improvement: definitely needed more plugs for computers; could burnt some incense for the annoying flies.

Ranger recommended this small cafe. We sat outside on porch eating old fashion ppj. Really on homemad bread and local black cherry soda. Bought Richard Parks book on Fishing YNP. Great read, will be donating to Bozeman PL before we leave the area. Great spot before entering the North Gate a mile down the road. A must see stop.

Old, stale coffee. Very limited book selection to have been called a bookstore. Just a few things for sale

There was only one person working for breakfast and we waited 30 minutes to get a couple of egg sandwiches that I would never write home about. I saw some good reviews for this place, but we vowed never to return.

Nice coffeeshop on the way to Yellowstone, unfortunately the very demonstration why students and temps can not make 100% of staffing of a restaurant: 15mins wait for two grilled cheese to go, spent not so much on cooking time but on deciding who does what and how - live training is important but if by early August nobody knows how to do a sandwich, regular coffee not operate payment system, something is wrong there, irrespectively how nice the staff is...
