Once again - great food and service!

Stopped off at the Palette again and had 1/2 a sandwich and some kale chips. YUM! Excellent - yet again! AND - so affordable! People were very friendly and made me want to go back again! Thanks!

We stopped here on the strength of other trip advisor reviews and we're not disappointed. The ginger lemonade was awesome. We had the blt and the cherry salad and both were delightful. Each bite was full of flavor. A great stop in the way from kalispell to Glacier!
