I stumbled upon this place while exploring downtown Missoula when I first moved there in 2010. They have such a unique selection of things of a wide variety - spices, incense, chocolate, books, tea pots, earrings etc. They also have a nice little cafe in the back and their milkshakes are made with Big Dipper ice cream so they are...

Great chocolate selection, extensive selection of teas & herbs. Really enjoyed this unique store. We didn't sit and enjoy their hot drinks but we happily bought an assortment of their chocolates (which are invitingly displayed in large glass jars).

This is one of my favorite little shops located on Higgins in downtown Missoula. It offers a wide variety of teas, spices, soaps and lotions. They also carry tea pots and coffee pots. They have a little beverage bar in the back. Very fun place!

I found a delicious Mocha Hazelnut tea blend, and checked out options for spices and herbs. I liked that they offer coffee beans from so many different areas of the world. I'm used to maybe seeing it from Costa Rica or Columbia, but they had options from C. and S. America, the Middle East, etc. I look forward to trying... More

Butterfly Herb is a Missoula institution. It was there before coffee and tea was hip and is still a great place to grab a bite to eat at the little café in the back and then take home some tea or coffee or maybe some chocolate-covered expresso beans. I go there every time I'm back in Missoula for a visit.

Graet place to stop in for teas or coffees by the pound or maybe candles or soaps. Many locally made products are featured- maybe take home a sage "pigtail" ( called a smudge stick) to smudge your home. In the back you can grab a booth or a stool and order up something to drink and eat--- breakfast is best!... More

On my recent (Dec 2012) visit to Missoula, MT to visit my gal-pal "Thelma", she took me to check out Meadow Sweet Herbs and Butterfly Herbs as part of my introductory tour of Missoula. I make a lot of herbal products at home, so am always up for a visit to an Herb Store or two. Visit their websites for... More

It's hard to pin down The Butterfly, It's a gift shop ,candy store, coffee and sandwich,fabulous soda fountain and the best " Fringe people" watching place around. This is the heart of Steam pump fashionista in Missoula. Always crowded and entertaining.Don't be put off by the exotics .. they are very cordial. The view is the cliental. great fun

Work your way through the spices and coffee to the tables in the back for a nice cup of coffee and a little something. There sandwiches aren't too shabby either.

I've never been to a place with such a variety in loose herbs and teas...that being said the espresso bar in the back is also a treasure. The baristas know what they're doing.
