Echo Lake Cafe


  • Glacier
  • Cafe
Opened in 1960 the Echo Lake Cafe has been serving fresh, wholesome food for over 40 years. They squeeze their own orange and carrot juices everyday. All of their soups, muffins and desserts are made fresh on the premises. The Echo Lake Cafe even smokes their own salmon for their Cape Cod Benedicts and yes they make their Hollandaise sauce from scratch every day too.

This restaurant was completely remodeled in 1999 and kept the original old Montana feel with a knotty cedar interior and a Western motif including ranch brands and western art on the walls.

The Echo Lake Cafe is a very good place to eat with an extensive menu. They also serve breakfast or lunch all day. Voted number one Best Breakfast in the Flathead Valley by the locals for most of the last ten years including 2011, 2012 & 2013. Ranked #1 for breakfast restaurants in Bigfork by Trip Advisor for 2013. Ranked #1 for Bigfork restaurants by Yelp reviewers for 2013.
