Why work at the Log Cabin Cafe?
A summer at the Log Cabin is truly “once in a lifetime.” Here, memories and mountains make magic. You won’t find another restaurant like this. Most places simply don’t operate for over 85 years. Even if you find another cafe with such tradition, there are fewer still with only four family owners, like the Log Cabin. How many of those establishments are located in the wilderness?
You’ll cherish the special friendships you forge at the Log Cabin. You’ll be part of a family. Log Cabin co-workers and customers are deeply touched by Log Cabin magic, sharing something uncommon. You’ll join a group of fellow wilderness journeyers pulled into the Log Cabin’s powerful and indescribable orbit. You will foster an irreversible sense of loyalty, commitment, romance and beauty within yourself. Silver Gate and Log Cabin friendships will pull at your heart for the rest of your life.
You will contribute to the well being of the Great Yellowstone ecosystem. Food and travel are the two most powerful ways humans harm nature. Our choices about what to eat and how to move can also positively influence the health of our planet. Join our eco- pressure on the food industry toward responsibility and accountability.
P.S. If these reasons are not enough, the market rewards us. All employees leave enriched in many ways.

Mountains and Magic.
