A group of four including myself ate here yesterday before heading to the airport to return home. All of us were saying to each other that we wished we had come here on our first day since we would have wound up eating here every day. The food was great with ample quantity and the owner was generous and funny.... More

This is my favorite breakfast place and one of the few in Big Sky. Quality food and options for most diets.

There are some interesting items on the short breakfast menu. Be prepared to wait. there are many tables but they only serve at the bar which seats about 12. From the bar you can see into the kitchen and watch it happen. There were mostly locals when we went.

Open in the off season makes this a go-to for a hearty breakfast. Right at the intersection of the road to West Yellowstone and the road into Big Sky.

We had a surprisingly good breakfast in this little café on Gallatin Road, just a few minutes from Big Sky Town Center. Adults and children alike were happy. Good service, nice staff, clean restaurant, good food.

The food was excellent, especially the French Toast which is made from sour dough. The waitress could afford to be a little more friendly. She acted stressed when there were lots of empty seats in the restaurant. She was also slow on refills of water, etc.. If her attitude was friendlier she would get a bigger tip. We would have...

We have breakfast/brunch here often. Great food, selection and service. The quesadilla is exceptional as are omletes/french toast and pancakes. Very casual with beautiful outside photography by Ryan Turner. Servings are generous and reasonable prices.

My family of five was headed south after whitewater rafting and simply spotted the Bugaboo on the drive. We had a fantastic lunch. The bacon is awesome, the fennel sausage is great and the meal overall was delicious. We enjoyed our experience and recommend the Bugaboo!

I was super conflicted about this rating. LOVED the food - it was great with some great options. Server was friendly, but they seemed understaffed so we ended up having to get our own drinks some. The bigger issue was the time it took to get our food; at least she was honest that they missed the ticket of one... More

We were on our way to Big Sky Resort and needed to eat. We happened past Bugaboo and thought we would try it. We have teenagers and they loved it. Great size portions. The ingredients were fresh and cooked to order. I had the salmon egg with potato dish and I loved it. We all had empty plates which is... More
