Stopped there for Sunday (all you can eat) brunch. The cooks (for omelets or waffles) are very nice and cheerful. The fruit was fresh. You could have a Huckleberry muffin or a cinnamon roll. It already felt friendly as we walked in. It ended up being kind of fun to eat there.

Very attentive and friendly service. Run by the owners and their family. Have to try their huckleberry pie. So yummy, so worth it!

We arrived 15 minutes prior to their closing time and there were no other guests. Yet we were greeted with extreme friendliness and they did everything to prepare us a nice dinner. The food was very fresh and delicious and we were glad to have stumbled upon this place.

We rented a home across the road from this café so would eat here when not in the mood to cook. The breakfast buffet was very hearty - they would make you a customized omelet however you would like and the waffles were big and fluffy! We had dinner there one night and we all had different entrees and all... More

The atmosphere and staff (all from a single family) of this restaurant are delightful. We enjoyed the food, which was prepared right before our eyes.

We stopped here for dinner while driving from east glacier to west glacier. The host was extremely helpful, giving us tips on places to visit. The food was absolutely delicious!! It looked like family run place and the atmosphere was really warm and welcoming! Highlights of our trip to glacier!

Great food! Loved their use of local ingredients. Huckleberries were in season & we tried both their huckleberry lemonade (slushie-like) & huckleberry pie. Loved it. Our entrees were wonderful--bison burger cooked on the grill, chicken dishes with a locally-made sauce & pasta.

Homemade and healthy. Only complaint is that as an owner operated cafe they need to close to get a day off!!

This is a family run restaurant and the service is good. Everyone is nice and polite. The food though is average at best with nothing special. If you are truly hungry and need a place to eat right away, this place is OK but otherwise, I would suggest driving down the road (Rte. 2) about 5 miles to the Izaak... More

Cozy, friendly family run business. Nice selection on the menu. The dinner rolls are to die for! No alcohol served.
