Good food, good value.

My wife and I had breakfast and it was really good. We both had omelets that came with hash browns and toast with coffee. We did not leave hungry! The service was good, I would eat there again.

We were at the end of 6 days of camping and starving. The Montana Cafe was our watering hole of choice. We went in and sat down. We were greeted right away by a pleasant young man and received our coffee. The coffee was a little weak, but hot and that was good. The breakfast menu had everything you could... More

This is a family ran restaurant where the children are the waiters and busers. There was only one other couple and a gentlemen and it took 45 minutes for us to get our food. Food was good, but way too slow for service.

My wife and I ate breakfast and it was very good. The service was excellent and the price was very inexpensive. She had the half breakfast and I had the whole. They were both more than we could eat.

The atmosphere is pretty plain. Place was clean. Food needs better presentation. Service is very slow.

The place was clean, great food too! Reasonable priced too. My son and I split the 2 lb. club sandwich! It was the best tasting club I've ever had!

Stayed in the Travelers Rest Cabins across the street and was recommended by the owners to check this place out for breakfast. This is a family owned restaurant. It was great to meet many of the family members through the course of our meal. Fun and friendly people. Upon reflection this was one of the best valued breaktasts I've ever... More

We stopped for breakfast and my son wanted a breakfast beritto. They didn't have one on the menu, but the went ahead and fixed him one. Way to go out of your way to please a customer! We have ate there several time sense and never been let down yet.

We loved our omelettes. They offered 2 egg and 4 egg versions. The 2 egg buffalo omelet was filled with seasoned bison, tomatoes and the surprising element - cream cheese. The chicken florentine omelet was also delicious. Hash browns are extra and worth the $1.50 up charge. Coffee or tea is only $.50 with the meal. The family's very polite... More

The whole family works here. Kids are polite and so cute! The French fries are the best. There is a variety of things on the menu. I did have fried catfish that I wasn't crazy about. But I still recommend it for a small town choice.

Thank lteak
