We had the best experience having breakfast here... the food was delicious (tofu curry scramble, 1/2 a Belgian waffle), and the service was amazing. The woman working (I can't remember her name now... Sue?) was so, so, so nice. We really enjoyed talking to her and she gave us some great tips for shopping (Sage and Cedar!!) and activities in...

Went here for breakfast on our way out of town on our last day in whitefish. I tried the Montana hobo which was a huge helping and very delicious. My girlfriend had the waffles and said the syrup was some of the best she's ever tried. It's a nice casual cafe like atmosphere.

I've never eaten lunch here but the breakfasts are sure delish! Really good french toast and great breakfast burritos. The service is spotty at times though...but the last time I went it was good...., but the food is always lovely.

Had the ham & cheese omelette with potatoes & English muffin and the Eddy. Eggs were light & fluffy, with the right amount of portioning, potatoes had the perfect crispness. The Eddy was made with guacamole instead of avocado, which was a disappointment, but the sandwich was still good. Pricing was decent. Cute, cozy cafe. Good service with only 3... More

Swift Current cafe has been a family favorite for breakfast for the past decade. The Hobo plates, grilled meat and veggies topped with eggs, are my favorite. The French toast with a side of Megan's blueberry cream is my daughters favorite.

We had just come into town on our trip to Glacier National Park. The front desk of our hotel recommended this Cafe. It was chilly outside and they had a special of homemade soup and sandwich. Tomato Bisque was excellent and so was the sandwich. Service was very friendly.

The whole wheat french toast with strawberries and whipped cream is to die for! The hobo breakfast is equally delicious - tons of super fresh veggies and seasoned just right. Would go back for sure!

Good breakfast. Reasonable service even though busy. Scrambled eggs cooked just right and potatoes were well seasoned. They could use a wider selection and quality of jelly and jams. Def. a winner
