Traveling through bozeman from Minnesota we stopped at sola on a recommendation. For anyone this cafe and bakery is wonderful. As some one who is gluten intolerant it is amazing. What a treat to have many choices in the bakery. I wish they would share...More

As the Museum of the Rockies had no on-site restaurant, we walked to Sola for lunch. I had a tasty Albacore Tuna Melt. While perhaps not the most elegant setting, it was convenient and the food was good.

Unless I am fortunate enough to find a gluten free or at least very gluten friendly restaurant while on business trips I am forced to consume the standbys: yogurt, fruit, maybe an egg, maybe bacon. But not this trip! It was a blissful eating experience...More

This is a good place for good homemade style food. They use good ingredients and tend to consistently serve the food correctly cooked. As good as the food is, it's honestly not worth the hefty price they ask for such a simple meal.More

Amazing spacious cafe. Only negative is barista station confusing on where to order and then pick-up was difficult and then competing with drive-through window for service. So recommendation would be to just use the drive-through widow for best service.

I agree with the previous comment. It is not a sit down as such restaurant, although the food options fit your bill. It is more relaxed college feeling. Check out the web site for their look.
