Stopped after hiking to Iceberg Lake so we were very hungry @ 7pm. We were seated quickly but we had to flag down server to take our order. Cold Bulgarian soup was tasty however I only had a fork to eat with. Unsafe entry into the patio seating through a window was a concern for me as patrons and servers... More

Stopped here twice during our visit to East Glacier. Couldn't say enough great things about this place. Amazing service, delicious food, ridiculously good coffee and dessert. Nothing fancy here, just good people and good food. Just go try it!!! I promise you wont be disappointed.

If you want a hardy breakfast before going on an all-day hike, this is the place for you. This is an easy walk from Glacier Park Lodge.

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast here --great omelets, bacon and especially the cinnamon buns. The famous french toast looked uber decadent so we did not try it. Its a fun place too- they don't take themselves too seroiusly.

We had great service at the cafe. The BBQ chicken was fabulous and we enjoyed the huckleberry wine. We ate outside in the shade - perfect setting!
