About
Upon visiting Swift Creek Cafe, you will realize it’s much more than just food. It is a place of character, art, family history and community. The Moreno Halphen family has a strong tradition in food and coffee, which spans over 80 years. Guillermo Moreno, owner of Swift Creek Cafe, together with his son Christian bring this rich family tradition of coffee cultivation and passion great food to Whitefish. Executive Chef Christian’s menus boast a delectable option such as: our in-house made corn beef hash; fresh buttermilk pancakes topped with his own peanut praline butter; the colossal “Ron Swanson: A Swan Song” a true lumberjack treat, and the succulent “Rum Soaked House Brioche, Vanilla Diplomat”.

Had a great salad and cup of soup for lunch, and an equally great cup of coffee afterward. Probably the best lunch I’ve had in W-fish since Pig n’ Olive shut down. Highly recommended. Much improved from what this restaurant used to be years ago....More
