Big Sky Cafe

Over the past 30-plus years, Big Sky Café has somehow remained a hidden gem. The food and wine offerings are better than ever, as are the deals at happy hour, which runs six days a week (3:30–5:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday). The “Lucky 7” menu includes creative small plates, batched cocktails, and eight non-mainstream wines, all priced at $7. Start with a “tastes like summer” Elder Flower Gimlet or a Violet Cosmo in a shade of purple that nature has yet to duplicate. Follow with avocado- and pancetta-studded deviled eggs, pan-seared crab cakes, a bowl of Bang Island Mussels in fresh herb wine butter broth, and the must-have Gruyère and Spinach Grilled Cheese sandwich. It’s served quartered on grilled sourdough, along with a cup of Big Sky’s signature chunky tomato soup for dipping—a nostalgic, smile-inducing treat, no matter the season. 47 S. Old Orchard.
