cafes university of montana apartments


Welcome to the inaugural blog post from The Sawyer — the University of Montana apartments Missoula can’t wait to explore. The idea of community is important to us here at The Sawyer. It’s not enough for us to provide a place for students to eat and sleep; we want to provide a space for students to socialize, discover Missoula and experience college beyond the University of Montana classrooms.


With all those things in mind, we’re launching this blog series! Twice per month, we’ll be sharing info on Missoula’s best cafes and restaurants as well as general advice for college students living in their first off-campus apartments. We hope you learn a little something from each post, and that you continue to come back each month to read the next one.


Without further delay, let’s get right to our first post! Below, we’ll be talking about the most popular coffee shops and cafes in Missoula. Check it out, and be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and anyone who might be interested in learning more about our University of Montana apartments.


Black Coffee Roasting


There’s a lot to love about Black Coffee Roasting, but our favorite thing is the interior. You won’t find a more interesting coffee shop in Missoula. Black Coffee Roasting is housed in what used to be a car/boat repair shop. The inside looks like more an airplane hangar than a coffee shop, but that’s just part of the charm.


As for the actual drinks, well, let’s just say this place treats coffee like a craft. They’ve got iced mocha, Americanos, and a phenomenal Ethiopian light roast for serious coffee connoisseurs. If you need a light snack with your morning cup of joe, grab a slice of their avocado toast! The one downside to Black Coffee Roasting is that they don’t have WiFi. You won’t care about that, however, when you’re enjoying their $1 Americanos every Monday.


Clyde Coffee


Bottomless coffee, anyone? If you drink your java inside Clyde Coffee, it won’t run out until you decide you’re done. There are few better ways to start your morning in Missoula than by going to Clyde Coffee, and that’s mostly because of their delicious breakfast sandwiches. Everything at Clyde is affordable and well-made, and it’s served in a simple, inviting little shop. If you decide to go, be sure to order the drip coffee. It’ll wake you right up and have you ready for that 8am class.


Catalyst Espresso


The last spot on our list is a haven for vegans. Catalyst specializes in vegan sandwiches, and they’ve got plenty to choose from. This is a coffee blog, however, so we’ve got to mention their drip coffee. It’s simple but it’s some of the best in town. Catalyst also has an extensive menu of espresso coffee drinks, making it one of the best spots in town for those who need a little more jolt in their java.


Those are all the coffee shops we’ve got for you this week! We’d like to thank you for taking some time out of your day to read our first blog post, and we hope you’ll check back in a couple weeks when we post the next one. Above all else, however, we hope you’re able to get your caffeine fix at some of the top-notch coffee shops on the list above.
