I ate here twice last week, both times intending to eat their renown Reuben sandwich. My first visit was too early for lunch (lunch starts at 11). So I opted for their corned beef hash and eggs. I added pancakes and biscuits/gravy for my sides. I got to tell you that this is the best corned beef I have ever... More

We had breakfast here. They only serve breakfast and lunch. The food was excellent. I had Huckleberry stuffed French toast which was fabulous! The staff was friendly and made you feel welcome.

We were in town visiting our son and family and theytook us to Steves for breakfast. What a great breakfast. My wife had the Huckleberry Pancakes and they were to die for. I had the Cornbeef Hash which had big pieces of cornbeef and was very tasty. They were busy and service was good and very clean. We will be... More

Recently, my family and I met at Steve's Cafe (on Montana Ave) for breakfast before going our separate ways travelling. We were hoping for a healthier and nicer alternative to fast food and Steve's was conveniently located. The establishment was clean and service was friendly, attentive and prompt. The food was good with a varied selection. I was very pleased... More

Steve's is open for breakfast and lunch at 2 locations. The food is wonderful and the owners give back to the community. I love breakfast and this is my first choice.

There are good places for breakfast in Helena, but none compare to Steves. Huge servings of extremely good food with variety and some unique items. Always a line at the original...

We pulled off the highway and quickly found Steve's just short of closing. Our waitress, Maybea (we think we got her name correct) was excellent and the Montana style chili, corn beef sandwich, and huckleberry pancake for dessert was the best! TY!

We had a very enjoyable breakfast - pancakes, biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausage and bacon. The only item that needs adjustment is the gravy - it was too heavily seasoned with garlic.

Steve's has two locations in Helena to serve folks. I usually only eat breakfast here but I have had lunch also. They use good ingredients and the service is always good. If you are not a big eater and you are with someone else it is easy to share a plate instead of gorging yourself.
