... life is sweet in Missoula.
(Caffe Dolce is a real place. We practically lived there for 3 days.)
ADDED: A second view... showing a more crowded time of day:
This place was great as a café for hanging out with our laptops, but it becomes a real restaurant with table service at lunch and dinner. There's breakfast too, but you order at the counter. The French doors open out onto a nice walled patio — it's a corner in a mostly residential area — and we ate dinner there last night: Montana steak, wonderfully tender. The place seems both elegant and completely casual, the food and the coffee are great, and everyone who works there is really nice.
