We ate breakfast here twice. Staff was friendly and service was fast. Each day our order was exactly as requested, the portions large and so delicious. My better half likes his toast well done to the point of almost burnt. So when he placed his order that was his request. When our food arrived, his toast was just as he... More

Found this place online & it had good reviews. It was very busy when we went for breakfast which is a good sign. My husband had ham, eggs & toast & said it was above average. I had the special which was eggs, black beans, avocado on a spinach wrap with salsa. It was awesome! Will definitely eat here again... More

We car camped in Columbia Falls while visiting Glacier and quickly learned that Montana Coffee Traders is THE morning place in town. Fantastic food. Many sorts of terrific coffee and pastries. Don't go anywhere else in town. Great swag too!

Breakfast was ok, had veggie scramble. Coffee was good, nice outdoor deck for dining or sitting. Great friendly atmosphere. Right down the road from Starbucks...try local.

I was on vacation in Columbia Falls. I didn't eat here but got great coffee. I even bought a bag to take home. I should have bought more than one. I like the freshness of local coffee and this met the standard. The food did look good and they had a fun gift shop in the store.

We were staying in Whitefish and stopped for breakfast on our way to Glacier National Park. The food was very good, but we were unaware of the ordering procedure when we went inside. You order at the counter and prepay for the meal, then get your coffee or beverage and find a table. The service was good as well as... More

This is an understandably popular coffee shop. If you want a hot breakfast, build in a little time for the wait and expect a crowd. We just picked up coffee, pastries and sandwiches/lunch boxes, which were all excellent. Highly recommended.

On our way back from Glacier my brother-in-law suggested that we should stop at MCT for lunch. My Galcier Melt with fries was a very good choice. Seating can be a sparse because of wifi users.

Enjoyed eating here at the Columbia Falls location through out my vacation each morning. Healthy, yummy food! Also stopped back in a couple of times for a quick lunch. The salads were outstanding. Everything is made from scratch.

Popular cafe serving breakfast and lunch. Outstanding food and warm comfortable atmosphere. Self-serve honor system coffee (bring oyour own mug. Lots of vegetarian menu items and sinful baked goodies. Outstanding coffee! One of my favorite breakfast menues anywhere in the U.S.
