Super place for an awesome breakfast. This is your special kind of home town cafe that serves up great breakfast. Me and 4 guys there for fishing trip dropping in and loved it! We will definitely be back whenever in Helena!

We had a late lunch that was delicious! I had a veggie omelet, packed full of all sorts of good vegetables and served with two large pancakes and fruit. Very large serving. My husband had a great looking Reuben. Excellent service from such nice people....More

The breakfast is great! Everything we tried here was delicious, but the huckleberry pancakes were the best by far. The service was quick and the staff was friendly. Well worth another visit.

Great food! I have never tried the lunch menu, because I can't ever get past the breakfast items on the menu. Too many good options! The service is also great. Friendly staff. My only complaint is that they are closed for dinner. :(

It's everything you need for breakfast/brunch/lunch and the service is excellent. Easy to find as you pass through the town too.

Stopped in here after a long day of travelling from New York. We were able to order omlettes for lunch. I had the Garden Omelette, and my companion the Chili Omlette. Both highly recommended! Fast and courteous service. Great value!

We ordered the huckleberry pancakes and they were very large and very tasty! The tall stack (4 huge pancakes) would even make Paul Bunyan full! The huckleberry sauce that comes with them is delicious!

This is what a local restaurant is supposed to be. Locally sources eggs, great service, bacon to die for. I don't do anything here but breakfast.

I can't say how busy they are lately; they've always done a good business, though. Breakfast through about 2 PM as I recall, it's often fairly busy. The Montana Avenue location is, I think, even busier.
