Can We Talk About Pie?

Central Montana is working on developing a Pie Trail throughout the region. Yesterday was my first day of sampling – a very fun requirement! I was driving on MT Highway 200 near Winnett and stopped in to the Kozy Korner cafe. I sat below the sign that said they were voted best pie in the […]

December Brunch at the Union Grille

Every Sunday in December the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton does a plated and served brunch in the Union Grille restaurant. I’ve been wanting to get there since the first Sunday – I finally got there! The lobby of the Grand Union was decorated beautifully with just enough decorations to enhance the rich woodwork and warm colors. […]

Geraldine’s Home Cafe is A Blue Ribbon Winner

On my visit to Geraldine, Montana last week I stopped in to the brand new Home Cafe. After a fire on Main Street destroyed Geraldine’s grocery store a year ago, the Ludeman family built a new building that now houses Ludeman’s Country Market, The Home Cafe and Bar 34. I happened to notice a jelly jar of chokecherry […]

I Do Love Coffee Shops

After a morning of birdwatching at Freezout Lake between Fairfield and Choteau, Montana I drove to Choteau and stopped at The Meeting Grounds cafe. It was chilly, heck, it was downright cold because I hadn’t dressed right! A hot beverage was just what I needed. I’m not a coffee snob but I like to think […]

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 […]
