For a quick snack, full meal or just a cuppa joe, this place really rocks. The food is excellent, the service even better and many types of coffee to sample or buy. When in or around Columbia Falls, be sure to stop in for some warm beverages and great food.

Very delicious coffee, and the quiche is a greate option too if you're hungry. Another time, I bought a pound of coffee beans to take home with me and didn't realize that you get a free coffee with that purchase! It was a nice surprise. Staff is always friendly and very helpful. A cozy place to hang out in the... More

I'm pretty picky about my coffee, and MCT does an excellent job with theirs. I had the brown sugar cinnamon and my boyfriend had the iced mocha, we both loved our drinks. Even better, the service was great and the selection of unique, locally made gifts was fantastic. Even though they were busy, the line moved extremely quickly. The price... More

We stopped in for lunch after a meeting in Columbia Falls the day before, and the owner who was at the same meeting came up to us to greet us! How special is that!! The food was excellent, and you can get your own coffee and make it your own way. We are looking forward to going back. They have... More

It's funny.....I'm not a coffee drinker but oh my, how I love to walk in to Montana Coffee Traders and breathe in that wonderful aroma. I had hot chocolate with my wonderful Big Sky breakfast--eggs, avocado, fire-roasted salsa, potatoes, beans. A great start on a winter day. Friendly service---order at the counter. So good--and we walked out with some coffee... More

I have eaten here several times over the last few years and uo until recently it was always the best breakfast in C falls but lately they cut the portion sizes and the food has been much greasier. I have been going to the night owl more often now, but the coffe and atmosphere are still good here.

Made a quick stop on our way into Glacier National Park for our morning caffeine. Service was fast. Coffee was fresh and hot. Many varieties and flavors. A bit on the Starbucks' pricey side - but worth it for quality coffee.
