Fodor's Review

Opened in 1949, this cozy cafe is a longtime Missoula favorite for any meal, especially breakfast. Hardly a shack, the elegant little eatery, in an old auto dealership, offers all kinds of American fare—from an array of salads and sandwiches to huckleberry pancakes and almost 20 omelets, including interesting options like apple, cheddar, nutmeg, and cinnamon; and veggie, cheddar, garlic, and crouton. Swinging doors take you into the saloon, where there's an oak bar that arrived in Montana via steamship up the Missouri River a century ago. For dinner on the weekend, try the broiled trout with lemon caper butter, lamb chops, beer-battered cod-and-chips, or one of the specials.
