Cannot quit thinking of the fabulous breakfast we had here at Echo Lake Café! Poached eggs, THE best ham ever, THE best grits ever, and toast with huckleberry jam or honey. Eat on the patio or inside, doesn't matter, just eat there!

The place was surprisingly busy for a Monday morning, but we got seated right away and quick wait service. Our needs were anticipated including coffee refills. I had the huevos rancheros which were nummy with fresh produce, including cilantro in the salad.

Took a side trip one day to visit Bigfork and saw some good reviews for this place! So glad I went here for breakfast - it seemed like a restaurant that stepped out of the past, in all good ways!

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.
