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.

the food is somewhat creative, but the sandwiches are always Soggy. Everything is way over priced, and all 3 times I have gone it has been dead but yet I end up waiting almost 20 minutes for My sandwich and a bowel of soup. Give me a break.

The food is fantastic! Kind if on the expensive side but worth the price! Excellent soup and paninis, the smoothie was really good too!

Wonderful food but get there early before they sell out of their kale chips. Try the special but order a side of kale chips. Don't forget a mexican brownie for later. Hot and sweet can't be beat!
