We had heard about this place on PBS' Montana Backroads. Out in the sticks up a paved road outside of Billings. Good place to ride our motorcycles and absorb a (over)filling breakfast and some great music. We were not disappointed. Quite a crowd in a very small windswept old town.

What a great way to start the weekend! Breakfast and live bluegrass music. Best pancakes I've had in a long time. Unfortunately they can't survive on breakfast on Saturdays....They plan on closing in June. I sure hope they don't.

My daughter, granddaughter and I drove up on a Saturday morning arriving about 9:30. Be prepared for a line and a wait on a Saturday. The people in line were friendly and the music provided kept us entertained until we could be served. The music is a cross between Bluegrass and Americana and is presented in a very entertaining way.... More

Another hidden Far West secret in Molt MT: Fran's breakfast and lunch. Country atmosphere, super quality and ultimate friendliness provided by this hidden jewel: Fran is originally from Italy (where the best cooking comes from) but prepares in this Montana Hole in the Wall unforgettable meals. Try her Flathead Cherry Pie and her Oatmeal Pie.
