Relaxing Morning at the Rising Trout Cafe

When I was in Lewistown, Montana a couple of weeks ago I wandered up Main Street and found another great coffee shop to add to my list of favorites. As you enter The Rising Trout Cafe you experience a colorful atmosphere – deep red colored walls, paintings and beautiful photographs decorate the cafe and bookshelves offer some good reading while you […]

Breakfast Worth Driving For

Last week I was lucky to have breakfast at Eddie’s Corner, literally a corner at the junction of US Hwy 191 and 87. We had stayed in Lewistown and planned to do some touring in the area. Eddie’s Corner was a perfect stop, just about 15 or 20 minutes from Lewistown. Eddie’s Corner has been […]

Great Coffee Shop in Harlowton

I do admire a good cup o’ joe and when I find a place that does their own roasting, grinds their beans fresh and, as a result turns out awesome coffee – well, I love it! And, I happen to believe that people on vacation in Montana have to like that too! Snowy Mountain Coffee […]

Unique Shopping at Big Sky Grocery

I was traveling back to Great Falls yesterday from Harlowton and decided to make a quick (or so I thought) stop at Big Sky Grocery. The grocery store sits in a field about a half mile or so west of Eddie’s Corner (junction of US 191 and 200/MT 3). There are a couple of wooden gazebo […]

Puckering Up at the Chokecherry Fest

Lewistown hosts the annual Montana Chokecherry Festival the first Saturday after Labor Day each year. The festival celebrates the chokecherry – a tart wild berry that grows profusely in Central Montana. It may be a tart berry but oh, it makes some mighty delicious treats. Lots of people bake with it and my Mom used to […]

Bear Paw Coffee Shop & Deli

I was up early this morning and heading north/northeast on US Hwy 87 towards Chinook. As I drove through Big Sandy I debated about stopping, then changed my mind because I didn’t have a lot of spare time. On the way back to Great Falls I made sure I had time to check out this […]

A River Runs Under It

When I was in Lewistown, Montana last week I stopped in to the Montana Tavern on Main Street. Their outdoor neon sign really captures the title of this blog – a river really does run under this tavern! Spring Creek, which many local Montana fishermen know as an awesome fishing creek, runs near and through […]

Lunch at Brooks Market

Last week I was in Lewistown and timed my first stop around noon at Brooks Market. Brooks Market is easy to find – located on the corner of Main Street and 2nd Street in a beautiful building. When you first walk in you’ll see one wall devoted entirely to wine – wine that you won’t find at the typical […]

Farmers Market – More Than Veggies

OK, let’s set the record straight. I went to the Farmers Market in Great Falls tonight and I DID buy vegetables. But, the Fudge Lady was there and well, you know the rest of the story! This platter is what Alma Winberry, The Fudge Lady, calls fudge shooters. I didn’t sample them but gosh, they […]

Let’s Talk Food – Reuben Sandwich

I was at the Corner Stone Deli in White Sulphur Springs last weekend. And yes, it’s on the corner of Main in a stone building – pretty easy to find. Their “signature” sandwich has to be the Reuben. They actually make their own corned beef, then add swiss cheese, sauerkraut (if they want to make […]
