Beyond the restaurants that follow, I'm a firm believer in the restorative powers of the breakfast burritos at Soby's, in the Bozeman Hotel at 321 E. Main St. (tel. 406/587-8857), a favorite student haunt for breakfast and lunch. For a burger and a beer on an outdoor deck, you can't beat the Garage, 451 E. Main St. (tel. 406/585-8558). In the winter, the place compensates for the cold weather with the Soup Shack, serving seven hot soups and an array of toppings, from a space that houses the ice-cream-oriented Scoop Shack in summer. La Tinga, 12 E. Main St. (no phone), serves up authentic Mexican burritos, tacos, and tostadas using homemade tortillas and salsa. The Community Food Co-op, 909 W. Main St. (tel. 406/587-4039), is a locally beloved market, with a great deli, salad bar, and seating area upstairs.
