We are getting ready to head home to Montana for the whole week of Christmas and I couldn't be more excited! Many of you that know me know I'm a huge foodie! So about two weeks ago I made a list of spots that are my favorite places in Montana to grab a coffee or just get some yummy food! So i thought i would share them with you guys because if your local to Montana or planning a trip there yourself then these are a must do while you are there! Also i added two places to the list that are in Colorado, these were highly recommended by friends and my best friend Yelp!
( Im that person that yelps everywhere we eat! Silly I KNOW! )
But onto the best part! Telling you all the must stops on our way home!
My First stop in Colorado is going to be Dutch Bros! My best friend/fellow boss babe used to work at Dutch Bros in Washington and she would rave about them! Mostly they are known for their service and the amazing people that work there! So yes I'm obviously going for the coffee and snacks, but I want to see what all the rage is about and I made it a must stop on our travel itinerary.
NEXT. So This cute little place I stumbled on because a fellow photographer Molly told me about it for a possible shoot location! Ginger & Baker is this ADORABLE Cafe located in Fort Collins CO. Obviously scouting for locations I ended up googling the cafe and started down the rabbit hole of looking at their menu instead of the location! AND OMG GUYS the food looked so so so good! Like my mouth is watering just thinking about it! ALSO I will definitely be using this as a location cause how cute is this place!
I don't even know where to start so I'm going to start by town! So Kalispell/Whitefish...
Fleur Bakeshop, I don't really remember the first time I went into Fleur but I was hooked forever after, it was love at first sight. Which brings me to our slight detour in the next few sentences!
Fun background with Fleur, John, and I. Fleur ended up making little Smore pastry/tarts for the styled wedding shoot we were in when John Proposed, it may make me sappy and sentimental but every time I get to go into her shop and get some yummy little treats it takes me back to the day that we got engaged!
But onto the food... Since I was home last Fleur has moved their shop to downtown Whitefish and they have started serving PIZZA! Anddddddd for anyone that doesn't know im frikin in love/obsessed with pizza! So obviously I'm going back for all her delish sweet treats anddddddd I have to try the pizza I see on instagram stories allllll the time!
Next stop. Copper Mountain Coffee... Originally I planned on getting my favorite, Bull of the woods with raspberry & Coconut, with cream and whip... so healthy i know! Now I have no idea what ill get because I'm pretty sure this baby would be packing its bag and heading out if I drank a redbull! But everything from there is so so yummy and definitely my favorite pick-me up coffee shop in the Flathead Valley.
Next up Bozeman.
Oh Bozeman! This place has such a sweet spot for me! The best memories as a child were spent in Bozeman and the best year of my adult life was spent in Bozeman! So you could say the places I want to revisit are sentimental as well as gosh darn yummy!
First on the list Sidewinders... Their french fries and the oh so yummy S pretzel. This was a staple for me when I lived there, not sure how I'm not 500 lbs. But me and my best girl friends would go and get fries, pretzels, and huckleberry mules after a long day of work and just shove our face with the goodness! So I cant wait to reunite with them and do our good ole tradition!
FoxTrots Macro Bowl... This is pry the healthiest thing on my food list! This veggie/rice bowl is seriously soooooo good! I would probably get this at least once a week, now I see why I was always broke, but that is beside the point! I love food and when its good food with good friends its all worth it!
Ok everyone that is a wrap on my food to do while Im home. I struggled to keep it smallish! There are so many places I love back home that its hard to just pick a few! I hope you guys get to try at least one of these places and you love them as much as I do!
