Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I were on a road trip and we stopped here for breakfast. I ordered oatmeal with an English muffin and my husband ordered apple sausage, eggs, toast and hash browns. The food was very good. My husband thought the sausage was made in house. The oatmeal was good. The service was friendly.

Went for breakfast and was impressed with the food quality, tasty coffee, and friendly service. I had the shrimp omelette, and asked for it to be made with egg whites, and it was delish! My co-worker had the pancakes and raved about how light and tasty they were. Worth a stop for the most important meal of the day!

I came to eat with husband. First thing I asked is if they had non dairy milk. Waitress was super sweet and very attentive said no. Then when it came to placing my order I asked what exactly can I have as a vegan. I asked what if we made the breakfast burrito vegan. She wrote down explicit instructions of what should be in it and I know cause she showed me. The dish came out with eggs in it. She was sweet and took it back because she knows what she wrote. Another dish came out and no eggs. It was not the best and not the worst. Towards the end I noticed bits of ham in it. I didnt say anything at this point since it was not her fault. We paid and left. They should remove vegan options because there really is none even oatmeal made with milk.

On Father's day my family tried to get a take out order for breakfast. I am currently going through Chemo for cancer and due to the treatment I can't be in public spaces due to infection risks. We were told when we called and when my husband went in that they weren't doing take out, making the excuse they we're too busy. If you have too much business you shouldn't advertise take out busines. This business doesn't support its patrons the way its loyal patrons supported it during the pandemic. The people were rude and made excuses instead of assessing the situation and choosing to support its patrons as they support them. So very disappointing, won't be returning any time soon and will make sure our friends and family don't either.

Hello Mrs. Jen/Jenktucker4, I'm sorry about the medical battle you are currently fighting. I hope chemo is done with and your health is progressively getting better now. Father's Day is one of the busiest days of our year. We were VERY short staffed and low on products that day and were working as fast as possible to take care of all the people that were dining inside. We held off on taking any to go orders for the majority of the day because it causes newer cooks to get behind. This is something we do on our busiest of days and will enact to keep our kitchen working smoothly and efficiently, versus getting bogged down. On another note, I wanted to let you know that if you had asked for me or one of my managers and explained your situation to us, we would have been more than willing to assist you. We would have definitely made an exception for you and your family. Regardless, I apologize that you were not able to be fed by us at such a difficult time for you all and on a special day. If you do come in again, please ask for me so I can introduce myself and ensure your experience was a good one (*I work majority of the time at our North Montana store). However, I would like to send you something to compensate your experiences. If you can send me your address to steve@stevescafe.com I'll mail you a gift letter that can be used at either cafes. I hope, pray, and wish you all nothing but the best and sincerely hope you are feeling better. Take care and hope to see you soon! Respectfully, Steve Vincelli 406-449-2770 (Regional Office) steve@stevescafe.com

Decent breakfast, but unfortunately neither of us got what we ordered. (We asked opinions and the server brought us the opposite of the two things we asked between). She offered to fix it and apologized, but we were not super picky and didn't want to take the time. Food was good, but not quite as amazing as the reviews led us to believe. The menu had a lot of good options, but the things we ordered were just average to good food quality, not amazing like reviews and awards led us to believe! In short- if you're looking for a solid diner breakfast with a large menu to choose from and some fun options, this is a good place. If you're looking for something unique and foodie-like, this may not be the right place - at least based on our meals.

Hello patn03, I had recently heard about one of my new servers making a variety of mistakes this last few weekends. I'm very sorry about your experience - why your meal was completely wrong is baffling to me. Would you please send me a quick email about who your server was? What was served? I also would like to send you a gift letter, but do you live here or were you passing through? If not, then I would like to get you a gift card somewhere you enjoy where you live. Your meal should have been taken care of and I'm sorry for all the mistakes from my staff. You can reach me on my office line at 406-449-2770 and at steve@stevescafe.com I really appreciate your help with new staff and the (unfortunately) their training. Thank you and take care. Respectfully, Steve Vincelli Owner - Steve's Cafes

I had a terrific scrambled eggs & large diced ham entree topped with sausage gravy, with generous hash rows & sliced tomato. My partner enjoyed the house made apple sausage with eggs & 2 small (8" diameter!) pancakes. Minor improvement - spicy mustard instead of just yellow...

The breakfast menu offers something for everyone. The house made link sausage is amazing and we always take a pound home. Their house coffee blend is just perfect with the huge pancakes. If you leave hungry that's your fault because the portions are massive. I don't want to forget the wonderful service. I have eaten at both restaurants and the waitstaff is the same. The service is fast and the people always smile and keep your coffee cup full.

My client wanted me to go to one of the best restaurants in Helena, so we came to Steve’s. I picked the Chef’s Salad, which was nothing special. Today’s dessert was chocolate cake with huckleberries, which was good, but again nothing special. Maybe I just ordered the wrong things.

Coffee gets two stars, like most restaurants. However, the corn beef hash and eggs were the best I have had in a decade or more. I requested extra crispy and they did not disappoint. The plate was properly garnished and attractively laid out. That is important to me as the visual aspect of eating is so often overlooked. Service was attentive. I give this restaurant four stars.

We usually try to stop at Steve's Cafe when we are travelling. Their hot chocolate is wonderful. It testes better than most restaurant hot chocolate. Creamy and full of flavor. My husband tried the Eggs Benedict and said he really enjoyed it. I tried the Huckleberry stuffed French toast with bacon and fresh fruit. Most definitely filling. Their huckleberry meals are always a tasty treat. They allowed my Service Dog. Always a plus in my book. The bathrooms are clean and plenty big enough for a wheelchair. Breakfast is always a treat at Steve's Cafe.

My wife and I had lunch here. My Reuben sandwich was excellent but the side of Cole slaw was lame - small serving and pretty bland. My wife had a bowl of mushroom soup and a cheese bread that she liked. It took a long time for the food to arrive. Our waitress, though was excellent. She was very friendly and helpful. I could rate our experience as a 4 or a 5. I went with a 5 because of the waitress.

Best food in Helena for breakfast even after many years frequenting both locations. Huckleberry stuffed French toast and country fried steak are cornerstones. I have not had a menu choice leave me unhappy. Eggs, toast, potatoes, meat. Each item tastes great. Great staff.

Good food, good service. Arrived at 11:00 and was seated right away. Full menu with a multitude of options for breakfast and lunch. It was hard to choose. With sides, there was plentiful food!

Perfect rating. The quality of food and service were the best. Denise couldn’t have been better,…with her attentiveness to friendly fast service and recommendations. I had the Rachel sandwich and delicious beef barley soup. Next time I’m passing through, I will plan to eat there again.
