About Pinky's

Pinky's Cafe is family owned and operated, offering creative comfort food, cooked from scratch. We pride ourselves on incredible service and a family-oriented atmosphere in our new and improved, comfortable dining setting in the heart of downtown Livingston.


Pinky's has been a staple of Livingston for over 20 years. Originally opened by Terry and Rich Ruggles, it was purchased in 2014 by Morgan and Jessica Milton. It has been a regular haunt of local artists and writers.


Morgan Milton, chef and owner, grew up on a ranch north of Roundup, Montana.  Pinky's is truly a family endeavor for the Miltons. The restaurant serves beef from the ranch he grew up on and his mom, Dana makes all the bread for the restaurant.


Morgan went to culinary school in Portland, OR at Western Culinary Institute and worked in restaurants around Portland for a year before returning to Montana to work at Chico Hot Springs. Morgan spent seven years at Chico, ending as the Executive Chef.


When he met his wife and started thinking about a family, Morgan decided to purchase Pinky's and focus on breakfast and lunch.  Morgan has a passion for food and strives to uses as many local ingredients as possible. He loves to be creative and bring fun twists to breakfast.
