Great local place with great service, large food portions! Pancakes the size of dinner plates. Reasonable prices with coffee 10 cents if you order breakfast.

Been spending summers up in the Flathead for several years, and somehow missed this place until more recently. 5-stars for the small town coffee shop atmosphere, ten-cent coffee, and ample hash browns which are infinitely better than those obviously deep fried 'cottage potatoes' most places...More

Food was decent. Loaded hash browns proportions could use some tweaking but tasted good. Portion size for price was great. Coffee was lukewarm. Eggs Benedict with bacon & avocado no complaints. Home fries tasted good just needed cooked a little longer.

Sykes is a local trademark of the Kalispell area that was established in 1897! We're the home of the ten cent cup of coffee, and we make sure to say that loud and proud. Join us for a great atmosphere and some downhome cookin'.
