This little cozy cafe has very good sandwiches, burgers and salads. They have seasonal Flathead cherry cobbler with locally grown cherries. It has gluten free options with delicious homemade gluten free breads. Quaint cafe with outdoor seating.

Traveling extensively in all the western states the last two years, finding a great place to eat is exciting. Echo Lake Cafe is superb. We've been here three times and will find more excuses to come again before we leave this area in October. Fresh fruit, fresh ingredients and oh, those homemade blueberry muffins chock full of plump juicy blueberries.... More

5 stars on all levels. Great menu with large selection. They only serve breakfast and lunch. The service was great and we would definitely go back! They were great at accommodating children (menu, coloring pages etc). Very clean, cute and comfortable. A must if you are in the area!

Have come here on multiple trips to Bigfork and never a disappointment in service or food. This most recent time I had one blueberry pancake that was plenty for one person as it was huge and was the best blueberry pancake I can recall having. It's a very busy spot in the summer, but worth the little wait to get... More

We arrived at 10:45 AM on a beautiful Tuesday morning. We were immediately seated at a lovely table on the terrace. Our breakfasts--scrambled eggs with sausage, vegetable omelette and Eggs Benedict --were outstanding. We even played some miniature golf afterwards on the lawn adjacent to the terrace. While the greens could be better, that certainly didn't distract from an excellent... More

Excellent food! I recommend the Cape Cod Benedict, if you like smoked salmon. They make many items from scratch and have a wide variety of breakfast items.
