Best Comfort Foods in Bozeman
Winter is creeping into the Gallatin Valley again, and that can mean only one thing: hearty meals, soups and late morning breakfasts as the first flakes of snow start to fall. That's right, its comfort food season!
Stuffed Crepes + Waffles
Crepe or Waffle?
If you’re in the mood for the ultimate savory experience, try the Florina: a cracked egg, ham, melted Swiss cheese, spinach, red peppers, and topped with pesto. Feeling simply sweet? Treat yourself to the Brittany: strawberries and bananas drizzled in Nutella and dusted with confectioner’s sugar.
Montana Ale Works
