Home Cooking

Located just north of Yellowstone's Lamar Valley, we serve savory home cooking for Yellowstone explorers. Simple, nutrient-dense meals are magical in our historic log dining room. 


Built by a single woman during the Great Depression, the Log Cabin Cafe is a regional icon of stability. We're here.
