“Excellent pie and great coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We just happened to duck in on a chilly day - neat atmosphere, great service, good coffee but the triple berry pie was unreal. Will be back.

Bathrooms could use a deep clean, but not enough to lower this places review...

“Great coffee and baked goods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We were on our way out of town and had a very long drive ahead of us, so we stopped here for coffee and a couple of treats for the road. The coffee was wonderful and baked goods very tasty. Helped get us going on this, the second day of our three week road trip.

“Great coffee house ambiance but terrible coffee”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Me and a couple friends were really craving some delicious coffee in the morning so we rolled on in. I was impressed with the feel. Awesome building. Looked real nice.

I got the worst Mexican mocha I've ever had in my life there. It was very chalky. When I say the worst I mean I couldn't even drink it bad. What's worse is my buddy got an Americano and he couldn't drink that! Now how can you mess up an Americano. It's impossible right!?

service was great. But you can have a nice building and great service but without a good product why even open your doors to the public at all. Oh ya and the quiche.... Yikes.... 3 for 3 on the inedible/undrinkable meter.

“Awesome baked goods, and great coffee too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

I have never been disappointed at Break Espresso, and have been in several times. Their baked goods are phenomenal (the pumpkin gingerbread muffin, chocolate chip banana bread, cinnamon rolls and caramel pecan rolls are all absolutely amazing) and the coffee is great too. Iced coffee, lattes, black, it's all extremely high quality and delicious. Plus, the staff are always friendly, the venue is big and perfect for working or just hanging out. A local favorite for good reason!

“Great Coffee Shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Break Espresso is a super location in Missoula, Montana. Located on the main drag on Higgins Ave. Great place for coffee and pastries! Pastries that are made here at this location which are super good! A lot of college students study here. A lot of people will be on their laptops! Large place. Lots of hook-ups for your laptop. Very interesting people to meet and also a super spot to relax and catch up with work or e-mails on your computer. Very friendly. When your passing through Missoula do not miss hanging out at Break Espresso.
