“Not quite what I was hoping for”
Reviewed 18 January 2013

Three of us stopped in about 1pm on a Sunday for a late breakfast hoping for a nice hearty home cooked breakfast. The place had a couple groups of 5 or 6 people already seated. There was only one server and she was doing her best to keep up but service was a bit slow. The kitchen was a bit slow getting orders out as well. The menu wasn't huge but had a decent variety of items and the prices seemed inexpensive. The coffee was good however the breakfasts were a little disappointing. The portions were not very generous. The food was ok but there just wasn't anything fantastic about it. For the price of the meal I have had better breakfasts. I don't like to leave a bad review but I just wasn't very impressed.

“Great Breakfast Place”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

If you want a hardy breakfast before going on an all-day hike, this is the place for you. This is an easy walk from Glacier Park Lodge.

“Delicious cinnamon buns and breakfast”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast here --great omelets, bacon and especially the cinnamon buns. The famous french toast looked uber decadent so we did not try it. Its a fun place too- they don't take themselves too seroiusly.

“Great service”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

We had great service at the cafe. The BBQ chicken was fabulous and we enjoyed the huckleberry wine. We ate outside in the shade - perfect setting!
