“Best Chocolate Ever!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The Parrot Confectionery has been in business for 93 years. It has the old fashioned soda fountains with the best ice cream milkshakes. This place is a must for every traveler that goes to Helena. This is an icon- you have to visit!

“Great chili!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The parrot is a trip back in time. The soda fountain and candy assortment are awesome, and their chili with a little bit of vinegar is the best anywhere! The new owner is extremely friendly, but unfortunately his staff isn't all as polite. The older gentleman, I believe his name is Albert, seems extremely out of place in such a cheerful environment as he seemed annoyed with us and kept sighing out loud and it kind of seemed like he felt like we were wasting his time... he was also not too
thrilled that my phosphate was too sour and asked for a different one.. That aside, I have and will always love the parrot!
