    Uptown Diner

    Walking into this quaint little diner is like stepping into 1956. But the atmosphere — complete with a soda fountain and chrome bar stools — is nothing compared to the food. From burgers and fries, to pancakes and omelettes, this place has you covered when it comes to variety in your post-party recovery meal.

    Ruby’s Café

    This cozy family eatery has been a mainstay in Missoula for decades, and for good reason. The food is tasty, the prices are reasonable and they use more butter on their toast than anyone else in town. It’s a perfect place to relax and refill your tank.

    Food for Thought

    With a menu so diverse that it requires several chalkboards that wrap around the walls of the restaurant, you’re sure to find exactly what you’re craving the morning after a long night on the town. By the way, the banana bread French toast is to-die-for.

    The Hob Nob

    This cute little Higgins Avenue breakfast spot is often overlooked, but its fresh, delicious food and hip vibe make it a great option for those who would prefer to hide behind oversized sunglasses as they eat away the effects of the previous night’s escapades.
