Good food

The café is about one mile from the Vista Motel. Very convenient. Reasonable prices for the area. Very helpful and friendly staff who will give you their recommendations. Nothing to dislike really.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and the West Glacier Cafe certainly did not disappoint. The pancakes were huge and fluffy and with the huckleberry syrup made for a pancake-lovers delight. Friendly service, reasonable price, and huckleberry syrup. What more could you ask for?!

Melissa was our server and she did a good job. I had the meatloaf special and it was excellent. My wife wanted a plain cheeseburger but there wasn’t one on the menu. She ended up ordering, and paying for, the bacon cheeseburger without the bacon. She specifically asked that it be cooked well done but it came out with pink... More

We ate breakfast here every day of stay in West Glacier and the food was excellent, and the service was good & friendly. The waiters both gave us good tips on what to see and where to go and gave us a feel for the area.

Quick service in a laid back cafe atmosphere. Lots of food choices and large portions. Seemed a little pricey but it's right outside the gate to Glacier National Park.

We felt that our food was not very flavorful while being extremely overpriced. If you can avoid this place, please do.

we opted to go for breakfast here because of a bad dinner at another restaurant in west glacier but were mildly surprised at the quality of the food. Clearly, this is a high traffic, high turn over restaurant but on a cooler, smoky morning in august the hub hub of the dining room had a cozy feel. It does not... More

Several gift shops in the area (most likely under the same management) offer a 10% discount at the West Glacier Café upon purchasing gifts in the stores. Being in the area for lunch, why not? The international servers were all courteous in both seating and waiting on us. The food was fresh, well-prepared, and generous in portion. And, of course,... More

The initial reception I received by the welcoming host was less than cordial. Another waitress took care of me after she noticed my dismay. The portion of scrambled eggs was wonderful, probably the heartiest sized helping I have ever had anywhere!
