Compass Cafe and Sola in the Community

Check out our current exhibit>


Part of what makes Sola unique is the variety of cultural events, art, and music we host for the Bozeman community.

Every two months, a new local artist’s work is featured on our restaurant’s dining room walls. This provides a new venue of exposure for budding and established artists, as well as having an ever-changing “view” for our loyal Sola customers. We love seeing and hearing our customer’s appreciation of and reactions to the art on our walls!

In addition to art, we provide a comfortable, fun, and delicious venue for a variety of musical and cultural events, oftentimes in partnership with musicians and companies for the benefit of a non-profit or charity. Want to host your next event at Sola? Contact us today.


It is our philosophy at Sola that we must participate “on the ground” in our community, both in Bozeman and the surrounding Gallatin Valley.

We receive many, many requests for fundraising efforts and we try to say “yes” to as many as we can. We generally channel cash requests to one of our existing fundraising programs. We select one worthy cause per month to which to donate food and treat platters. Want to be considered? Learn how here.


10¢ to Charity

Every time you use any personal mug at Sola, we will give 10¢ to the month’s charitable organization. See our home page for this month’s recipient.

When you use a Swap mug at Sola, we double the donation to 20¢ per use. What’s a Swap Mug? They are mugs you never have to wash. You bring it in dirty, we give you a clean one and wash it for the next person to use. Help the planet and our community. Use a Sola Swap Mug!

To date we have donated more than $11,000 to local charities through this program! Every time someone uses a personal mug at Sola we give 10cents to the month’s selected charity. If you would like to have your organization considered for our 10 cents to charity reusable mug program, please use the Application for Charity Programs » and select 10 ¢ to Charity Program as inquiry type.


Organize your club, school, or group to do a fundraiser selling Sola gift certificates. Each member takes a form around to friends and neighbors, collects the payment, Sola provides the gift certificates, your group distributes them. Your group keeps 20% of the total proceeds. We have all the forms and make it easy for you.


We donate a percentage of all artwork sold from our galleries to an organization selected by the artists and Sola.


We send all leftover items to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.
