“Not quite what I was hoping for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Three of us stopped in about 1pm on a Sunday for a late breakfast hoping for a nice hearty home cooked breakfast. The place had a couple groups of 5 or 6 people already seated. There was only one server and she was doing her best to keep up but service was a bit slow. The kitchen was a bit slow getting orders out as well. The menu wasn't huge but had a decent variety of items and the prices seemed inexpensive. The coffee was good however the breakfasts were a little disappointing. The portions were not very generous. The food was ok but there just wasn't anything fantastic about it. For the price of the meal I have had better breakfasts. I don't like to leave a bad review but I just wasn't very impressed.

“Great Breakfast Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

If you want a hardy breakfast before going on an all-day hike, this is the place for you. This is an easy walk from Glacier Park Lodge.

“Delicious cinnamon buns and breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast here --great omelets, bacon and especially the cinnamon buns. The famous french toast looked uber decadent so we did not try it. Its a fun place too- they don't take themselves too seroiusly.

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We had great service at the cafe. The BBQ chicken was fabulous and we enjoyed the huckleberry wine. We ate outside in the shade - perfect setting!
