This store/restaurant has a little bit of everything. The sandwiches are wonderful and generous. After eating you can enjoy the many herbs/spices/coffees and other things for sale. A truly unique place to eat and shop.

Going to the Butterfly downtown is like going back in time as it is housed in one of Missoula's very old medical drug stores. The ceilings are high, wooden floors are worn beautifully and shelves are lined in fine smelling coffees, teas, spices, herbs, extracts and you can shop for everything and especially for treasures you are looking to give...

My family and girlfriend came to town (on separate occasions) and we went here. Both were impressed. Missoula has got a great bakery and coffee shop game. This place has more than meets the eye.

I was in Missoula visiting my sister for Christmas and she took my boyfriend and me to this store for shopping on Christmas Eve. What a find! They have an amazing selection of coffee and tea, including many organic varieties.

In the main shopping district, this tea shop had a wonderful offering of teas she mixed herself. Prices and selection were great. She also has some gift items and there is a small café area in the back.
