This place is fantastic! We stopped in Helena on a cross country drive and the friends we were staying with brought us here for breakfast. Lovely atmosphere, and for such a cool coffee shop is really spacious with a large enough menu that there's something for everyone. I had the breakfast burrito and my boyfriend had one of their famous scrambled egg dishes. Both were made to order with yummy fresh ingredients. My tea came in a really neat infuser contraption that is also on sale there, and the coffee was apparently first rate as well.Service was fast and the prices were very reasonable. I wish I lived in Helena so I could go here on a regular basis!

Nord with 1 of his 3 daughters

What a great place to eat and relax.  Some friends of mine and I chose the Firetower Coffee House to meet for lunch and once again we were not disappointed.  Nord, the owner is very friendly as well as his staff!  We had the soup of the day and 1/2 sandwich.  The cranberry and nut bread with sliced turkey was fresh and very flavorful!  The soup was okay.  The portions were perfect as well as the price.  For 2 of us it was $17.00 and well worth it!  The atmosphere is very relaxing with seating as diverse as leather chairs in the front of the store so you can enjoy your coffee or lunch while you people watch. The back of the store have couches to sit and visit with friends or work on your laptop or read.  I highly recommend giving the Firetower Coffee House a try...you won't be disappointed!

The Fire Tower Coffee Shop in Helena MT

Serve yourself coffee. Breakfast Sandwiches that make you wanna scream they're so delicious. Friendly staff, and frequently hosting local musicians and such. The cookies are pretty killer too. I can't, for the life of me, think of why I didn't fall in love with this place sooner.  F-tower is quite spacious...everything from hightops to low tables and couches....you'll find a seat somewhere. Some of my best friends and best memories were made in this place....I could get nostalgic about Sunday brunch crew, but I'll save you.

Nords Bowl Of Soul

Great place to get a very decent cup of coffee (one of the only places in Helena that does straight up coffee passably) and chat, date, or work.Food is a bit pricey but tasty enough, and this place has a wonderful atmosphere, friendly employees, and a great owner.They support local education and are generally a great asset to the Helena community.

Comfortable Seating at the Fire Tower Coffee House in Helena MT

There seem to be two, and only two options for coffee in Helena: 1) Starbucks; 2) overly-pretentious wannabe hipster organic coffee shop. Firetower was the only place I discovered that was neither, and thus, I present to you my favorite coffee shop in Helena.  This was the spot where I would pick up a latte (or sometimes plain old fashioned coffee) and a breakfast of two eggs and wheat toast. I remember it being a reasonable price tag of about $5 but now it is closer to $7. They have also jumped into the smoothie market as well, and I must say that my strawberry banana smoothie was quite good despite being close to $3. The Firetower also has many different types of seating to meet just about every preference. Cushy chairs near the front windows where you can lounge and chat, high-top chairs and tables for intimate conversations, and basic chairs and tables in the back for working on a laptop. I believe there's free WiFi here as well (or at least, I remember there was).
