We only got two ice cream cones, but they must have been churning the ice cream while we waited it took so long. Didn't taste any better or worse than any other ice cream. I'd rather go to COSTCO and get twice as much for half the price at their café. I guess you pay for the History and atmosphere... More

This place was great, there is candy of all kinds lining every wall. Some of the candy is hard to find anywhere else. The ice cream is really good and the staff is super friendly. The soda bar is beautiful, where we sat. There is every kind of magazine you could ever hope want. The food is very basic, nothing... More

From the road, Norm's News did not strike me as attractive. But inside it is adorable, clean, and has a thousand things to look at. They have an old fashion soda fountain. And they offer a complete menu of espresso drinks. We tried some homemade huckleberry cobbler - yum! As the name implies, this is also a newsstand. Just try... More

What a great place! Great burgers! Old soda fountain. We don't eat sweets, but other folks rave about the shakes!

Historic news stand downtown. Go there for the malts and ice cream. Hamburgers were ok but not as great as some have reported.

We stopped by this place on the way to the airport as I promised to get my kids some candies before we headed home. Half of the wall space is all varieties of candy and the other half is magazines. We didn't really eat there. What makes it a unique experience is the western store connecting to it and the... More

Locals told us to be sure to stop here, and we are do glad we did. Hubby and I shared a humungous huckleberry shake that was out of this world..and only $ 5.95. Servers were upbeat and helpful. Super casual place, but fun,fun fun. Next door is western wear(never seen such an array of used boots) for sale, PLUS complete... More

Take the kids. A staple in Montana for generations. Good food. Unique candy & sweets. Great reads. Welcoming smiles. A place you don't want to miss if you're visiting or local.

My family and I love to have lunch at Norm's News. The only reason it doesn't get a five would be the value. It is a bit pricey with a burger, shake and fries running you about $15 but that doesn't stop us as the food and service is great! If you get the "Heaping Basket of Fries" it's really... More

While visiting Glacier National Park area my wife and I had lunch at this establishment. It just took yuu back in time as the lunch counter reminded me of some of the 5 & dimes of the late 40's to early 50's. We both got a chilli dog with fries. They both were fabulous. The staff was very friendly. This... More
