A friend and I decided to go to The Palette Cafe because I had heard it was good. We were quite delighted with the food and the lovely photographs of Glacier Park and the area on all the walls. I had a whole sandwich (half of it came home with me for lunch tomorrow) and my friend had the half... More

At least once a week I visit the Palette for a yummy sammie or salad. Outstanding! Great addition to Columbia Falls!

This is a small bistro type place. The food was good. Everything on the menu was unique and very tasty.

Our party of three had pulled into the parking lot, headed for Subway, when we spotted The Palette Cafe. Since we can always eat at Subway, we opted to try the Palette and we were pleasantly surprised. Good sandwiches and great salads. I'll go back if I'm ever in the area again.

This is a great little place with fabulous food and fresh daily specials that show a lot of creativity and flair. I hate kale, and they even made that (kale chips) so that I like it. Baked good are top-notch too. Wish they served dinner, but until they do, we'll be there frequently for b-fast, luch and sunday brunch. This... More

After a few attemps to visit were squashed because they were closed, I got to visit twice in 7 days! My dad and I went during a rush. We were told that the wait for a table was half an hour and decided to order to go. We each got a drink and split a cookie while we waited. The... More

Food is always great, no matter what I choose. Thai bowl is awesome! Feels good to eat here. One of two great lunch spots in Columbia Falls. Don't miss it, this is NOT fast food. Great for a leisurely lunch.

Flew into Kalispell to drive to a wedding in Essex. Ended up stopping here for lunch before heading up the pass. Menu had unexpected complexity/diversity and was just plain fun. Kale chips were great. Ladies split the bowls and found them to be more than enough. Creative sauces. Only downside was that service was a little slow, but we showed... More

A wonderful, creative restaurant. We made a meal of small plates, all of them delicious. The wine list is perfect for the menu. Great view, too.
