Excellent food

I've eaten at the loft several times in the past few months. I've been there for breakfast and lunch. I've really enjoyed everything I've tried. Their brisket dip sandwich was mouthwatering and unique. Their soups are delicious, as are their omelettes. Not only have I enjoyed me meals at The Loft... read more

There is clearly a master chef working here and breakfast should have been excellent but our experience was undone by a freezing cold space, luke warm food and terrible service. When we walked in a server passed us by and mumbled for us to take a seat. There were nine families there when we walked in a none of them... More

Little tiny place upstairs. Great breakfast... very basic.. service was quick and caring. They kept the coffee cup full and several call backs to make sure I was happy. If you are in Hamilton, this is where the locals go for a good meal without breaking the bank.

This is a locals place and quite casual. There was a wait a few times during our visit, but, being tourists with an agenda suggested to us we need to change timezones. I didn't feel real breakfasty so I asked if the soup was on. Indeed it was, a delicious clam chowder really hit the spot. Being from Monterey, it... More

Had a wonderful breakfast at The Loft. The atmosphere is was relaxing, and welcoming. We were greeted as soon as we entered the door. Our waitress was friendly and the service was great! We had been in Hamilton for three days and The Loft had the best breakfast of all the places we ate! We will definately be back.

The Loft Cafe is on the 2nd floor of a quaint old building. The bathroom which is right outside the cafe entrance was added to accommodate a building which at one time had no indoor plumbing. If you are looking for fast, typical food, you are at the wrong spot. This is the place to take your time and enjoy... More

Several folks in Hamilton recommended The Loft, so we were looking forward to enjoying lunch at this downtown spot overlooking the main drag. But we were disappointed in the food and the service. At least five minutes went by between our arrival at the restaurant and someone approaching us about being seated. In her defense, there was only one server... More

We had a yummy lunch here with friends who are locals. Sliced ham with lavender mustard and green apple chutney topped with melted cheese on a nice chewy bread was a perfect lunch. Try the lavender lemonade for something different.

The restaurant is my favorite for lunch in the Bitterroot Valley. It is upstairs in a historic building but worth the climb. Nice atmosphere, wonderful soups, salads and sandwiches, good prices.
