Ordered food and coffee to go from the Buttercup café, and was impressed! The lox bagel was delicious, and the burritos were huge. Had a happy family after picking food up here!

The Buttercup is a perfect gathering spot for meeting family and friends for lunch. The food is fantastic and the super bonus is that it's walking distance to the University.

Buttercup Market and Cafe is a great place for a light bite, some coffee, or a rib-sticking, flavorful meal. Coffee drinks are carefully crafted and delicious, empanadas and other breakfast favorites are well seasoned and satisfying. A must-visit place when I'm in Missoula.

I love the protein bowl here, it is healthy and filling. The owner is very gracious and I have found all the staff helpful. My group goes once a week and we love the coffee and the ambience, plus it is quiet.
