Lattes and Toffees and Burgers, Oh My!

The Eureka Rodeo is back for another rip-roaring summer

We all need to eat, and we each have our favorite dishes. Whether it’s burgers to smash hunger or a giant cookie to satisfy a giant craving, the Tobacco Valley is filled with restaurants whose food and service are second to none. This summer, after a day spent hiking the trails, enjoying a late night at the rodeo, or just because, consider indulging in some local favorites.

Latté 56

On those crisp Montana mornings, nothing beats a steaming mug of coffee. From robust americanos to the sweetest, tartest huckleberry smoothies, Latté 56 offers some of the finest espresso-based (and espresso-free) beverages in Eureka. 

If your stomach is rumbling, Latté 56’s breakfast sandwiches and assorted goodies are sure to satisfy. Stop by for a cup of coffee or hit the drive-through on your way out of town, because Latté 56 is a must-visit.

  • Where: 100 Riverside Dr. or 484 US Highway 93 N. in Eureka
  • What: Coffee, breakfast sandwiches, smoothies, baked goods
  • When: Hours vary; check Latté 56’s Facebook page for the most up-to-date hours

Breaking Bread and the Caffeine Machine

Sometimes, you just really need a donut. 

…or a savory kolache. Or an açaí bowl. Or a wholesome bowl of soup. Or an apple fritter. Or a loaf of freshly baked bread. Should we keep going?

Breaking Bread and the Caffeine Machine, both located in the same building, can satisfy any craving, sweet to savory. Check them out on Mondays when they feature their Malasadas: a Portuguese-style donut and one of the most delicious sugar rushes imaginable.

  • Where: 602 Dewey Ave. in Eureka
  • What: Breads, savory kolaches, pastries, baked breakfast items, soups, coffee, açai bowls, smoothies and other cold drinks
  • When: Every day 6:00 am – 4:00 pm (closes at 2:00 pm on Sundays)

Front Porch Dewey Burger & Fish Co.

The Front Porch Dewey Burger & Fish Co. is celebrated for its mastery of the art of the perfect hamburger–not just once, but twice. Crowned with the title of “Best Burger in the Nation” for their Bubba Burger in 2009 on the Ultimate Hometown Grill Off on “Live! with Regis and Kelly,” and then requested at the lighting of the Capitol Christmas tree in 2017, their burgers are a national sensation. Thankfully, you don’t need to travel to DC or New York, they’re available right here in the Tobacco Valley.

For those who might find the Bubba Burger–topped with Cajun sausage, jumbo shrimp, chipotle sauce, and cheddar cheese–a bit much, there’s a wide range of other innovative creations. We’d recommend trying the other recipe requested at the lighting: the Huckleberry Burger—topped with huckleberry jam, cheddar, jalapeños, bacon …and a scoop of huckleberry ice cream. Yes, ice cream!

  • Where: 307 US-93
  • What: Specialty burgers, fish tacos, New England style seafood rolls, fresh squeezed lemonade with huckleberry or lavender flavorings, house-made buns and rolls
  • When: 11:00 am – 7:00 pm every day (online takeout orders accepted through 7:15 pm)

Latté 56, Breaking Bread and the Caffeine Machine, and Front Porch Dewey Burger & Fish Co. are just a few examples of the excellent food in the Tobacco Valley. This summer, we hope you get to explore the buffet of flavors in our region.
