West Yellowstone is at the entrance to Yellowstone Park. It’s a good place to eat hearty before a drive into the park, or to relax and reminisce after one. For relaxing, the Book Peddler Cafe, actually at the back of a book store, offers all kinds of coffee drinks as well as pastries to go with them, and for big appetites, grilled burritos. Running Bear Pancake House is an opportunity to eat hearty before or after visiting the park, its menu including not just pancakes but also Yellowstone-caught trout, served with eggs and toast. Should you crave to taste the locally-loved fruit, Canyon Street Grill offers a huckleberry milk shake in season, which is mid-summer into September. The rest of the year, this retro-do-wop diner serves a full repertoire of all-American burgers, hot dogs, chili, and ice cream concoctions.
