Popular Bozeman Restaurant Under New Ownership
A popular breakfast spot in downtown Bozeman is under new ownership. Here's what you need to know.
Last fall, we reported that the Nova Cafe in Bozeman had been listed for sale. The Nova Cafe has been located downtown for nearly 20 years and is considered a local landmark. It first opened in 2005. Shortly after, the asking price was reduced by $100,000. The sale price included a lease in place, but excluded ownership of the actual building. We're not sure what the final selling price was.
We hadn't heard much about the Nova Cafe since the price was dropped in September, but we recently received an update.
Owner Elena de Diego shared the following on the Nova Cafe Facebook page on Wednesday.
Dear Nova friends,
It is with sadness but also excitement for what’s to come for this amazing restaurant that I would like to share with you that as of tomorrow, The Nova Cafe will be under new ownership. These last 3 years have been intense, challenging, and, as a restauranteur, an incredible learning opportunity. Since I moved here 18 years ago, I wanted to have a restaurant in Downtown Bozeman and I feel fortunate I got to fulfill that dream.
Thank you to all the people who have supported me and made the dream come true. I pass on the Nova torch to Molly Brewer & Evan Thorpe, who will continue on the legacy of this incredible little breakfast staple of our town. You got this guys!! Onto my next adventure!
Elena de Diego
