We came across a place in Great Falls, MT where we love to have pie and coffee. Although we have had dinner there once, we haven’t been in town that late to try more of the full menu. It is downtown right near the Civic Center.
It’s called Tracy’s
It is a homey little diner just like the ones that I grew up with! It has booths and spiny stools at the counter. It even has the little juke boxes at the tables and the glass counter where you pay has gum and candy bars for sale.
Normally we order Apple pie ala mode but my daughter decided to order a cinnamon roll…
It was as big as her head , hot and fresh.
I couldn’t believe it but she managed to eat the whole thing!
Their shakes are to die for!
The coffee is served in cups and saucers with actual milk if you want it, and none of these little sugar packets. The sugar is in a glass sugar dispenser. We even get placemats! I missed placemats. It was a great way to keep the kids entertained until the food arrives.
Every time we have been in there, we’ve had the same waitress. She is lovely. She’s always cheery even when she is feeling overwhelmed. Her name is Diane. (I asked, and I hope she doesn’t mind me taking her picture covertly!)
I heard her comment to a couple that were obviously just visiting Great Falls as they were leaving, “And we’re open all night so come back for breakfast!”
I love Tracy’s Diner!
