Damn Good Breakfast

This was good, really good. Even the coffee passed inspection. The fresh squeezed OJ was delicious. The wife raved about the Buffalo Pie. I had the poached eggs (slightly overdone) and some of the best corned beef I’ve ever had, even the hash browns were perfect. Sourdough toast was spot on... read more

What a piece of history you can taste. The venue was like walking back in time. The food was yummy and perfect for a quick bite. Little hard to find but so worth discovering. Friendly staff as well. Thank you.

The Shack has great breakfasts! My favorite is the Buffalo Pie, but their pancakes and omelets are great too!

We had a delicious brunch for ten, including 4 hyper-active kids. I will definitely go back. The staff were terrific - patient, attentive, efficient - and the food was plentiful and tasty. Highly recommend the omelettes and pancakes. Very reasonable prices. Beware, the place is popular and the wait can be long at peak hours.

This was my first visit to the Shack and what a surprise. The name of the place does it a disservice. The interior reminds be of the grand old buildings of Butte. Fortunately, that is not all to recommend about the Shack. We had breakfast and it was excellent as was the service. We will definitely be back again when... More

The food was excellent along with great servers. Loved the old building this restaurant resides in. In the historic downtown area with plenty of window shopping nearby.

Another great place to eat. Hitting the right time of the day is probably the most important thing as this place stays busy most of the time. You will probably have to wait to be seated, 20 to 30 minutes but the meal is worth the wait. At one point in time I think this must have been an old... More

Mmmmm went early had a great personable wait staff. Then had one of the best breakfast I ever had - Buffalo Pie! My family had all different savory and sweet breakfasts and all just loved the food and coffee. Great old style decor but very comfy. Wish this was in my neighborhood!
