This is a tradition for us when we visit Glacier. We choose a hike in the area and get up early to make the trip from St. Mary's (about 72 miles). We tried the turkey-cranberry-cream cheese hot sandwich, a huckleberry bear claw, a sticky bun, and parmesan bread. We shared with friends and the bread was still moist 2 days... More

We stayed in Polebridge for a week and loved waking up every morning and walking to the merc for breakfast. Not only are the huckleberry bear claws excellent, the breakfast sandwiches are phenomenal! Don't let the remote location fool you, get there early for the best selection!

We are foodies and I'm gluten free so it's not easy for us to find a good bakery to please our family. We stopped into this cute old timey general store and picked up a large assortment of bakery items. Everyone loved their choices; scones, cinnamon rolls, cookies etc. I got a GF trail bar and GF peanut butter cranberry... More

We bought the huckleberry bear claws and chocolate chip cookies at the mercantile the best wish we had gotten more. Very friendly people it was interesting to hear them talk about the area. We took a beer in the bar then sat outside to enjoy the view. Well worth the drive.

It's a bit of a drive but well worth it. Seems like a place back in time. Even has two pay phones (remember those!) on porch. Love the small store and bakery items. Had my first huckleberry bear claw and if was wonderful. Hang around and check out the place. Lots of people stop by that are camping or just... More

But as far as the little cafe goes and the pastries - So good!! I loved this little mercantile. The food was so good (most amazing potato salad...ever) and the pastries we got were exactly what we needed for a midnight snack. We headed up to Bowman Lake Campground and camped there so this spot was nice to get some... More

Over multiple trips I've spent time in Polebridge and backpacking the surrounding area. This is a place that when people ask me about my favorite places to go I'll hesitate to decide if I'd want to run into them there. Its a bumpy ride along the (thankfully) dirt road that keeps people out but if you're willing you'll be rewarded.... More

The most difficult part of the trip to Polebridge Mercantile was deciding which sandwich and pastry to eat. All of us agreed that the two best sandwichs were the meatball or the brat. As for the pastries, everything was fantastic. If fact we bought several to take back to our cabin in Hungry Horse.

Polebridge Bakery was a delight.The cookies with huckleberry jam were heavenly, and the stuffed sandwiches were fantastic. Definitely worth the very long ride on the dirt road. Service was friendly and prompt. Mercantile/bakery were fascinating. Wish I'd bought even more cookies! We only ate at the bakery.

My husband and I visited Montana for our honeymoon and one of the locals from West Glacier recommended that we visit the bakery in Polebridge. It was a long drive on an icy road but it was so worth the trip. I've never seen anything like Polebridge. It had a lot of character and the bakery was awesome. The pastries... More
