At first glance, you might mistake Jasper's Restaurant for a tourist trap, or maybe just another restaurant that caters to travelers on Interstate 90 in western Montana.  Take a closer look, as you'll see truckers, law enforcement, fifth wheelers, and lots of St. Regis locals dining at Jasper's Restaurant... so you know it is a great place to get pff the Interstate and enjoy a fine breakfast.

As with all of reviews that I publish, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  It's a little before 7 in the morning on Tuesday, August 22, 2017, and I'm parked in front of Jasper's Restaurant, and I'm ready for breakfast.  The night before, I'd camped in the nearby Idaho mountains, and had feasted on a cold can of beans for dinner, so I was ready for a delicious, hot breakfast.  Jasper's is just off nearby Interstate 90 in western Montana, so many of the diners are travelers, truckers, and, naturally, St. Regis locals.

Photo:  As you enter the restaurant, you're greeted at the cashier/greeter's station, along with a whiteboard that reads "Welcome to Jasper's" and announces the daily specials.  Huckleberries are the standard in this part of the country, to enjoy with pancakes or just about anything, as the sign outside reads, "Huckleberry Headquarters."  How could I go through life in St. Regis without ever tasting a huckleberry?  For me, no problem, as I can pass.  I was also able to pass on the casino located in back of the restaurant, as I prefer to spend my money on delicious food, rather than huckleberries and slot machines.

Photo:  The dining room is long, narrow, clean and comfortable.  My only objection is that the background music - traditional country music - was too loud.

Photo:  Meet Amy, my super-friendly server, who took my order, and kept my mug full of delicious coffee with a smile.  Amy has been in the St. Regis area for 9 years, after moving from upstate New York, and she told me that St. Regis is the friendliest town in the State of Montana. The gentleman with his back towards us didn't seem to appreciate all of the sometimes loud conversation that Amy and I enjoyed, and he later left in what seemed to be a bit of a huff.

Photo:  The first page of the breakfast menu which lists all of your breakfast favorites, and a lot more.  After spending the previous night out in the woods, and enjoying a cold can of beans for dinner, everything on the menu looked good to me.

Photo:  After I placed my order, I was treated to a view of the beautiful mountain scenery, as visible from the window at my table.  

Photo:  My friendly hostess, Amy, brings my breakfast to the table with a smile.  Yes, since I'd been camping the night before, I ordered a side of breakfast gravy.

Photo:  I smile, as Amy snaps my photo, as I'm ready to enjoy a great breakfast, at Jasper's Restaurant, in St. Regis, Montana.  I have to confess this is the first breakfast that I've eaten in Montana, and it was a great way to "break me in" to the breakfast sort of thing in Montana.

Photo:  My breakfast came from the "Egg Classics" portion of the menu, and was known as the "Classic Meat and Eggs."  Perhaps the menu should read "classy" instead?  For meat, I opted for bacon, and I enjoyed two eggs over easy - my de facto standard - hash brown potatoes, sourdough toast, coffee AND an optional bowl of breakfast gravy.  

My breakfast was delicious, the restaurant was comfortable, and I enjoyed fast, friendly service, thanks to friendly Amy.  Great food, reasonable prices and super friendly service make for a great meal, and you'll find all of that, and a lot more at Jasper's Restaurant, in St. Regis, Montana.
