Rustic Venue, Great Coffee

We stopped at Montana Coffee Traders with encouragement from a friend of ours. Well worth the stop. The coffee is excellent and this little coffee shop is one of the neatest venues I have been too. Not overly fancy but with a true back country rustic feel to it. Check it out!

You have lots of good choices for lunch in Columbia Falls but the favorite spots for locals to have coffee and breakfast are MCT, The Night Owl, and Basecamp Cafe. MCT has a kind of urban feel and they even serve quiche. Some of my friends have a habit of going there daily. If you need to shop for gifts... More

Decided to try this place for breakfast after a recommendation from the folks at the Columbia Mountain Kennel. Looks small from the outside, but is warm and inviting. It seems to be "the place to be" on Saturday mornings, and we soon found out why. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee was hot.

We stopped here one morning for breakfast while on vacation in Columbia Falls. The place was busy! Be prepared to wait if you go at peak breakfast time. I had a special that they had that morning which was potato pancakes and gravy with eggs and it was soooo good. Rich, but good. The second time we tried to go... More

Good breakfasts, lunches, and pastries to go with excellent coffee. They DO need to add waffles & pancakes, however. Also, too many strange quiche options with black beans, potatoes, multiple chiles but seldom a good classic like bacon/ham, cheese, onion, & mushrooms, and wonderful quarter pie servings of the early days have been downsized. Still, a good, cozy, dependable stop.

Over the years we have gone to Coffee Traders for a quick breakfast or lunch. The coffee is usually brewed just right. The food is good, but sometimes too much the same menu over and over...still good but could be more interesting...
