Park Café & Grocery
at the East Entrance
to Glacier National Park
WELCOME to the Park Café! You've heard about the pie, but there's much more, including fantastic breakfasts, big ol' burgers, and vegetarian fare. Meals with names like Gallinaceous Greens, Gypsy Burrito, and Mediterranean Baker. The soups, chilis, salsas, you name it – are all homemade.
We have a grocery and gift shop too! There are zillions of t-shirts in the gift shop and one of the best displays of Indian jewelry in Montana. We carry a great selection of Pendleton blankets at the lowest prices in Glacier, and of course it's “huckleberry mania” every day.
Folks are amazed at what's crammed inside our grocery – fishing tackle, camping gear, automotive supplies, pharmacy stuff, and a bunch of Montana beers that you can “mix ‘n match” for a six-pack. We're hikers and backpackers ourselves so we have all the stove fuels, bug repellent, foot repair, doodads, plus a ridiculous variety of energy bars.
Anything else? Internet access, espresso bar, memory cards, camera batteries, nightcrawlers, ear plugs, postage stamps. We've been at this for 30 years; if we don't have it, we'll help you find it. We appreciate our customers and that means YOU!
Fodor's Review of Park Cafe
"Not far outside the St. Mary entrance, pies call to hungry travelers. With more than 17 different kinds baked fresh every day, it's no wonder their slogan is "Pie for Strength." Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are traditional American fare—great burgers, sandwiches, barbecue chicken, bison steak, and much more. You'll probably have company waiting on the front porch for a table, but it's well worth it."

"The friendliest, most pleasant cafe in the area - and delicious too!"
"The Best Place to Eat in Glacier and Homemade Pie to Boot"
Customer Reviews from Yelp
"...How can you not stop at a place where "Pie For Strength" is their motto. There are some seriously good homemade pies here. I also love the local, non corporate atmosphere. You should eat here rather than at one of the restaurants in the park. Even if you are not hungry, you must stop here for pie, take it to go. You won't be disappointed."
"...Avoid eating inside Glacier National Park. Instead head to Park Cafe. My sister and I had breakfast, lunch, and dinner there on different days and each time the service and food was excellent. The french toast, eggs, and giant piece of ham (available only in that region) will bring you the first excitement of the day...The steak special and the pork chop dinner were also very tasty and it's perfect when you finish it off with their amazing pies and some huckleberry ice cream. While you're indulging, try a huckleberry milkshake too - it's the perfect kind where it's so thick you have to drink it with a spoon! Yum, yum, and yum! Plain and simple."
Park Cafe is a Also Great Place to Work!
"Working at the Park Café was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The work environment is fun and challenging. The best part is the friendships you create and the hiking in Glacier. If you are a hard worker and want to have the time of your life, this is the place for you."

"Summer in Montana can be improved in only one way: summer at the Park Café."

"The Park Café is not just a summer job - it's an education about living in community with others,
learning how a small business functions and exploring one of the most beautiful places in the world."
