You’ll find many styles, from French-inspired pastries to gourmet doughnuts and good old-fashioned cakes, pies, and cookies; you won’t have to look far to find delicious treats.
Wild Crumb, Artisan Bread, and Pastries, Bozeman
Featuring over a dozen different types of artisan bread plus daily rotators, you’ll have a hard time eating anything but once you try these delicious loaves.

New Day Bakery, Belgrade
It’s all about the doughnuts at New Day Bakery, including donut sundaes, holiday doughnuts, and giant birthday doughnuts. But don’t worry; if doughnuts aren’t your thing, their pastries, cookies, and desserts selection is equally impressive.

Bagel lovers will be thrilled to see the selection of fresh-made bagel breakfast sandwiches. However, if sweet treats are more your thing, they have a great selection of scones, rolls, and croissants. Later in the day, they turn their dough-making skills into gourmet pizza, salads, appetizers, and sandwiches. You could quickly eat all day at this lovely little family-owned bakery.
Bear Country Bakery, West Yellowstone
If you’re headed into Yellowstone National Park, a stop at Bear Country Bakery for snacks (or sandwiches!) is a must. If you’re a cinnamon roll fan, get there early because they sell out!

Open for the summer season, May 1, but you can get their pastries at Euro Café during the winter months!
