After a few attemps to visit were squashed because they were closed, I got to visit twice in 7 days!
My dad and I went during a rush. We were told that the wait for a table was half an hour and decided to order to go. We each got a drink and split a cookie while we waited. The rush cleared out and they offered to plate our food instead, which we took them up on. My dad got an Italian panini and I got the Thai chicken wrap (huge!), both with delicious kale chips (even my Texan daddy loved his kale chips).
The following week, my husband and I went back and things were much quieter. He also got the Italian panini, but I opted for a salad with shaved beets, pear and goat cheese.
I don't think you could choose anything on the menu and be disappointed. The ladies that work there are super sweet, as well. I will definitely be back!

Food is always great, no matter what I choose. Thai bowl is awesome! Feels good to eat here. One of two great lunch spots in Columbia Falls. Don't miss it, this is NOT fast food. Great for a leisurely lunch.

Flew into Kalispell to drive to a wedding in Essex. Ended up stopping here for lunch before heading up the pass. Menu had unexpected complexity/diversity and was just plain fun. Kale chips were great. Ladies split the bowls and found them to be more than enough. Creative sauces. Only downside was that service was a little slow, but we showed up just at lunch.

A wonderful, creative restaurant. We made a meal of small plates, all of them delicious. The wine list is perfect for the menu. Great view, too.
