The food is always good. The entire vibe of the place is eclectic. Prices are a bit higher than other cafes but the laid back feel of the place is worth the difference.

This place was a perfect stop after a morning touring the U of Montana campus. Son loved having breakfast for lunch. I had a very good turkey sandwich and my daughter had the fish and chips. Cute restaurant and great service. Would definitely visit again...More

We never miss breakfast at the Shack when in town. Very friendly and efficient service. Good food if a little pricey. Guess you have to pay for the beautiful old building ambiance.
