No wonder it gets busy and packed fast! Amazing food! I really loved the eggs Benedict with hollandaise sauce and homemade baked potatoes. Also try their earl grey blue tea! One of the kind! An incredible surprising quality in a small rural town. Very stylish place as well. Very affordable.

My girlfriend and I had to try this place for breakfast after reading some of the reviews. So glad we did! I had the corned beef hash and eggs, and it was excellent! Real corned beef and potatoes! The sour dough toast was of course awesome, and a great cup of coffee too! We had breakfast at a couple of the other most popular places in town, and Swift Creek Cafe is definitely a must!

Best lunch I’ve had in Montana. Avocado toast. Great atmosphere and staff.

About us

Swift Creek Café is a place of character, art, family and community. And it’s a restaurant that’s about more than just food, but about family. The Moreno Halphen family has been in the food and coffee industry for over 80 years, and their love and dedication to the craft is always evident, from the flavors in the menu to the décor of the Café itself.

Their story began with their maternal grandmother, who founded Finca Don Bosco, a coffee estate on the Talamanca Range between Panama and Costa Rica. Sonny and Choly Moreno inherited this family business, and they, along with their four sons, elevated the estate’s coffee production both domestically and internationally. They created an outstanding product while always staying focused on their values: tradition, conservation, sustainability and respect for the land.

Today, the family tradition is being carried forward by award-winning Executive Chef, Christian Moreno, who earned his degree from the top French pastry program, “Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Påtisserie” in Yssingeaux, France. He brings to Whitefish the extensive culinary experience he gained while working for and training under world-class chefs across the United States.

Guillermo and his son Christian, along with their wives and founding members, Lindy and Melissa, welcome you to Swift Creek Café. They hope that, in taking a seat at their table, you share your own passion for great food, delicious coffee and welcoming community, and become a part of their extended culinary family.
