Blink And You’ll Miss These 10 Tiny But Mighty Restaurants Hiding In Montana
You’ve probably heard the expression “Good things comes in small packages,” and it definitely applies to some of Montana’s tastiest restaurants. These small spaces are easy to miss, but if you manage to get a table, you won’t be disappointed.
1. Euro Cafe, 237 Firehole Ave., West Yellowstone
This little coffee shop and eater serves some of the best brunch in town. And since the space is small, they allow you to make reservations so you can stick to your schedule.
2. Cafe Fresco, 317 E. Mendenhall St., Bozeman
This cozy, intimate Italian cafe in Bozeman will win your heart. With delicious food, friendly service and a charming ambiance, this is the definition of a neighborhood gem.
3. Dog Hill Bistro, 116 E Railroad Ave., Plains
This cute little coffee shop and deli is small on space, but big on charm. No wonder it's a local favorite.
4. Cafe Zydeco, 625 W. Euclid, Helena
Do not be fooled by the small interior of Cafe Zydeco. The big flavors of the amazingly delicious Cajun food more than make up for the cozy space (you'll also find locations of various sizes in Bozeman, Missoula, and Billings).
5. The Rising Trout Cafe and Bookstore, 217 W Main St., Lewistown
This cute little cafe is a reader's dream. Find the perfect book, order some breakfast and a coffee, and get lost in a good story.
6. Hob Nob on Higgins, 531 S. Higgins Ave., Missoula
Everyone in Missoula knows two things about Hob Nob: 1. The space is tiny, and 2. The food is well (well) worth the wait.
7. Beautiful Day Cafe, 20777 Frontage Rd., Belgrade
It's easy to drive right by this Belgrade spot, thinking it's just another espresso stand. But step inside and you'll see they also serve some mouthwatering breakfasts and baked goods.
8. Mission Bistro, 225 Main St., Stevensville
From their shareable small plates to their hearty dinner entrees, the team at Mission Bistro really knows how to prepare a memorable meal. The interior is small, but it feels cozy and welcoming.
9. Swift Creek Cafe, 307 2nd St. E., Whitefish
There are plenty of places to find a tasty breakfast or lunch in Whitefish, but this one is exceptional. Owned by the Moreno Halphen family, the seasonal menu features plenty of classics made from local ingredients.
10. Best Burger, 8194 Huffine Ln., Bozeman
In a city like Bozeman that's full of great eateries, including burger joints, it can be tough to compete. But the small and mighty Best Burger manages to do so with their savory burgers and perfect milkshakes.
These are just a few of our wonderful restaurants that happen to be in small spaces. And if you’re looking to enjoy a meal in a beautiful setting,
