Went for a late breakfast and had the whole wheat pancakes. How they get them so fluffy and tasty is a mystery. The vegetarian hash also looked very tasty too and if you take the cheese off it's vegan. Noticed some gluten free options too...More

We stopped here for breakfast before a beautiful hike in the area. As a self-proclaimed 'Benny-hunter', I can say that the Eggs Benedict were really, really good. My order and looking at other people's orders, the portions were a decent size and I thought the...More

Good food, large portions, reasonable prices. Inside seating hot in summer. Outside looked dreamy! Service attentive and pleasant.

We "heard" this was the place the locals eat and I can see why. Yes, the food was excellent, fresh and there were plenty of choices. We sat inside, but the patio looked really comfortable and was well-covered to keep the sun off. But mostly...More

While not often in Bigfork, breakfast is almost always here, and well worth the wait, there is always a wait, the locals know good food, everything is great on the menu, try it all.

Great food and super quaint place. Service was friendly and quick. You can sit in or outside depending on the weather. Yummy special potatoes.

I've been here twice. The service was great both times. The food was very good the first time and pretty average the second (something was wrong with the gravy). I'd still recommend it, but consistency might be an issue here.

They do have gluten free bread. It's a little more expensive but I think it's made in house. Then, of course, they have all the typical gluten free, eggs, bacon, fruit, and some vegetarian items that are gluten free as... More
