It was delicious! I had a ham and Swiss omelet and was super excited they had gluten free toast! Plus the house made jam was excellent!

Great eggs benedict and fried potatoes here. Coffee and service was also outstanding in this chic little restaurant. Loved that it was easy to get and out of on motorcycles and only wish it was closer so I could go back for the homemade bread!

Description
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”. Lighter selections include a Seasonal Grain Bowl, a wonderful Chicken Salad, as well as Vegetarian and Gluten free options.
