  • Homemade Montana Breakfast

    Each morning you may help yourself to fresh, homemade breakfast breads from the unique bun-warmer built into our 1880s ornate radiator. A delicious full breakfast is also prepared for you to enjoy either privately in the comfort of your room, or family style in the dining room.

    Breakfast always starts with an artfully arranged combination of fresh fruit and berries accompanied with something freshly baked, such as muffins, scones or the Voss Inn’s special cinnamon rolls (as pictured and described in Gourmet magazine.) For the main course, choose between our freshly made granola, hot cereal, or our delectable egg dish, which varies daily and is served in individual ramekins.

    Savor the Voss Inn’s special blend of organic, fair-trade coffee, which is roasted specifically to our specifications by Grounds for Change, roaster for the HomePage Cafe, Bruce & Frankee’s internet cafe located on Main Street in historic downtown Bozeman.
