No better breakfast in Helena...If you are really hungry, try the sausage sampler. The service is always delivered with a smile and you will never have to wait very long to have your coffe and/or water refilled.

When we go into Helena for breakfast or lunch, Steve's Cafe is always our first choice. Excellent service and comfort foods such as homestyle biscuits and gravy are reasons a plenty take your friends and family there. The hash browns are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Great sandwiches also.

Steve's is the best! Try the homemade corned beef hash -- YUM! And the best coffee. If there's a wait, Steve himself will bring you a cup of his delicious coffee to make your wait enjoyable.

Steve's has two locations in town but this original locale on Custer Street is still my favorite. It's a little less "Baker's Square" than the one on Montana Street. I visit Helena at least once every year and I make it a point to eat at Steve's at least once each time. This trip, I managed two visits, one breakfast... More

Light fluffy buttermilk pancakes the size of NYC manhole covers, bacon cooked just right (my brother asked for extra crispy..me limp/maybe undercooked..got both as we like it) and super service. Steve is the go-to place for first class chow to start the day!

There is a reason there is a line! It is worth the wait & the wait in reality is not long. The staff is friendly and sweet. I always order the day's special and enjoy every bit!
