Best place for breakfast you can find.

When in Whitefish, Montana you just have to go Swift Creek Café for breakfast, the service is fantastic, food just scrumptious, coffee never ending. Don't miss this place, you will be sorry if you do.

Had breakfast during our two day stay in Whitefish. Very nice freshly cooked food, well presented and served with charm. We were with friends, one of whom ordered fried eggs. The waitress apologised that his eggs breakfast would be a liitle behind ours as she considered his eggs overcooked and had requested they be replaced! That is a good but... More

The breakfast selection here is of superior quality. The place is a bit small, but we were fortunate enough to be seated quickly given the congestion and were taken well care of during our visit. The French toast with whipped cream and banana is especially delicious!

Swift Creek cannot be beat. It is full of locals (as evidenced by everyone being greeted by name), but we always feel warmly welcomed. Breakfasts are always solid and stick to your ribs. I recently had the biscuits and gravy and though I prefer my husband's version, I would order it again when in the mood. Coffee is quickly refilled,... More

Get the Hobo for breakfast- they are so good! We had to ask our server what a hobo was and its breakfast potatoes/hash with a variety of toppings on top then eggs on top of that (you can get the eggs any way you want them). I had a hobo with peppers onions, sausage, salsa and guacamole on the side... More

This café can sometimes have a line waiting but is worth it. Staff is excellent and always refilling your coffee. Servings are a fairly large size but it very tasty. Looks like the locals go there so you know it is good. The eggs/bacon and skillet breakfast was very good

We were soaked from camping in the rain overnight, and needed some hot coffee and food - fast! My son Googled, "best breakfast in Whitefish" and the Swift Creek Cafe popped up. We were not disappointed. I enjoyed a huge plate of biscuits and gravy with bottomless coffee, and he had french toast. The highlight of his breakfast was the... More

While many will wait in line across the street for their bacon and eggs, Swift Creek will be serving up delicious scrambles, fluffy pancakes and awesome veggies (no celery included). The service is excellent and the atmosphere conducive to conversing or reading the morning paper.

We recentley visited white fish on our trip to Montana and decided to have lunch at the swift creek cafe. We had to wait for a table. Which we don't have a problem with. But there were open tables. But they were always dirty and needed to be cleaned off. The staff just didn't work efficiently. We had to wait... More

We came in for lunch during our vacation. This is a downtown cafe. We decided to try it from tripadvisor ratings. We were not disappointed. The food was cooked to order and scrumptious! You may have to wait to be seated, but not more than 5 minutes or so. I would definitely return if we lived there.
