Awesome little coffee shop downtown. They have all kinds of great pastries and breakfast sandwiches and their coffee is very good. They also do custom cakes. They made a Pokemon cake for my 8 year and it came out great.

I really wanted to love this coffee shop. It does, as another reviewer mentioned, have loads of character. Unfortunately, the coffee and food leave something to be desired. I ordered a caramel macchiato ristretto and spinach artichoke quiche. The barista said it was going to turn out more like a caramel latte since they don't have drizzle, was that okay?... More

Stopped by for coffee and quiche. Both were fantastic. Great place to just sit and relax. Moderately priced, but WAY more personable than Starbucks. Very friendly and attentive staff. I highly recommend a visit.

My wife and I were in Great Falls for a couple days. Always try to go to Big Sky Bread and Pastry for a coffee and carbs. Unfortunately today there were not open. Now where do we go? Back to 2nd and a couple blocks later my wife spied Crooked Tree. Turned out to be the perfect choice. Excellent latte... More

We went mid morning and had a great experience. We ordered a wide assortment of pastries and drinks, and everything was excellent. This place is obviously the class of coffee in Great Falls. I don´t think you can go wrong.

My friend took me here last October. The treats were amazing! The pastry I had just melted in my mouth. Great coffee too! Well worth the stop and the amazing bread place is 2 doors down.

It is always great to find places that raises the minimum bar for coffee way above your usual Starbuck experience, especially in the mid-west, but this place is one of those gems committed to making real coffee! They had great looking cakes but no real options for breakfast so we ended up going for coffee only.

Thank ehanse
