I have eaten here several times over the last few years and uo until recently it was always the best breakfast in C falls but lately they cut the portion sizes and the food has been much greasier. I have been going to the night owl more often now, but the coffe and atmosphere are still good here.

Made a quick stop on our way into Glacier National Park for our morning caffeine. Service was fast. Coffee was fresh and hot. Many varieties and flavors. A bit on the Starbucks' pricey side - but worth it for quality coffee.

Love this place. The food, coffee and people and always a pleasurable way to start my day. Located on my way to any of 5 or more weekly jobs and a mainstay in my day.

We went on a Sunday morning and arrived just in time to grab two seats. We ordered at the counter and our lattes came out first. They were perfect! We ordered a breakfast of eggs, sausage and hashbrowns. Everything was cooked perfectly. The hashbrowns were especially good! We also bought a pound of coffee beans and it comes with a... More

We had been trying the coffee at various other places in and around the Kalispell/Columbia Falls area, but without being too impressed. When we drove by this place, we noticed that it always had cars around it, so we gave it a try. At least when it comes to coffee, this is superb!

We travel with our own coffee from our local roaster but when in Montana we drink coffee here. We have tried a lot of different blends and never hit a dud. We like a good dark roast and always fill our thermoses on the way out to GNP. Expect it to be busy, but that's a good thing! Worth the... More

We stopped here every morning on our way into GNP. The coffee is excellent, but the breakfast wraps are just crazy good (and they are huge). Call ahead about 25 minutes before you want to pick your food up and it will be waiting for you. The staff and the food is "Awesome" to quote the favorite description of one... More

We had the biscuits and gravy, and the Big Sky (potatoes, eggs, cheese, bacon, black beans, avocado), plus a big cappuccino. All of it was delicious. The photography and art on the walls, the books for sale, and the relaxed staff and clientele made for a terrific morning, on a day when it was too rainy to hike in the... More
