Good food. Good staff. Great value. Just like a favorite small town diner from my hometown. If you want good food and a menu that should satisfy everyone in your family.

Great waitresses, food as you would expect from a cafe. Plin, filling, and pretty good quality. The family seating aspect is nice, you can meet anyone from the dog catcher to a senator in there.

Breakfast on a Sunday morning. Great old small-town atmosphere. Good service from friendly staff. Food was more than expected, and very good quality. Home-made sausage patties! Will try to eat here whenever we are in Kalispell.

Sykes is a local trademark of the Kalispell area that was established in 1897! We're the home of the ten cent cup of coffee, and we make sure to say that loud and proud. Join us for a great atmosphere and some downhome cookin'.
