So went here with family as we had never been. I know we will be going back! What an awesome place to kick back and have a great breakfast. Lots of choice and good quality food for a good price. The guy who is in charge (owner?), was great, was entertaining without being over bearing, had a few stories about... More

I'd heard from others that this was a great place to eat. We arrived right at noon on a Thursday. There were only three tables available and we were taken to one that was steps from the kitchen (which is open to view from dining area). We got coffee (wife) and a hot chocolate (me) in a timely fashion. It... More

OK ... so I admit the food is average, but this place was never meant to become a Michelin star restaurant. It serves very good meals from breakfast to dinner at a very reasonable price to scores of people every day, and it is a social hub for many, many residents of Kalispell. For many, it is information central, a... More

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'.
