Always amazing

I really really love the Palette. I have been many times and have never been disappointed. They have wonderful variety and a lot of options for vegetarians like me! I also had the most delicious scone ever here - milk chocolate toffee. In fact, I wish I were eating one now.

My husband had an easy choice here as they had vegan foods. We both got the Thai bowls with peanut sauce. His had to full and mine had chicken and it was topped with a peanut sauce that was just the right amount of spice. I took a star off because it was so noisy and the noise reverberated off... More

Stopped here on our way to Glacier since the reviews were favorable. Tried the wasabi bowl and the Vietnamese sandwich. Only ok. Lacking flavor. The bowl was certainly a healthy choice but mushy and anything billing itself as wasabi flavored should have a kick. Should have trusted the local who said " fairly flavorless stuff" think hippy tibetancoffee house

We stopped at the Palette Cafe based on reviews searched up while heading to the Kalispell airport after our week in GNP. Delicious Sandwiches, bowls, salads and soups. Excellent options on the menu and a lot of care goes into finding great flavors and combinations. Everything was super fresh and super flavorful. Limited hours- 9-2pm during the week... the cafe...

Split a great wrap with a friend when I was in Columbia Falls, Mt while I was visiting Glacier National Park. The food is very creative, in a very good way! I had the Beef/Beet wrap that had a horseradish mayonnaise sauce on sliced roast beef and shredded beets (instead of pickles)!! Great combination. To drink I had a Brazil... More

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!

We stayed overnight in Columbia Falls on the way to Glaciar. My daughter was not feeling well so we stopped at the doctor's office in town that allowed walk-ins. With a one hour wait we went looking for a coffee shop and the Palette Cafe was in the same shopping mall. Everything sounded so delicious and smelled so wonderfully that... More
