Born to the drummer of Fitz and The Tantrums, this Italian-inspired, Missoula-esque espresso bar is located just down the road from the house.

Parks & Nature
Few communities enjoy a place quite like the 60,000-acre Rattlesnake National Recreation Area and Wilderness just north of Missoula. A well-developed trail network in the Rattlesnake’s lower reaches gives you a variety of options for day trips – or you can pack overnight gear and venture farther into the high-country wilderness. Despite its name, there have been no verified sightings of rattlesnakes in this area. You will, however, find ample opportunities to view many other wildlife species, including beavers, deer, elk, mountain goats and black bears. During spring and fall, you can see more than 40 bird species.

Waterworks Hill is a short hike that has one of the best birds’-eye views of the city’s railroad yards, downtown and into the Bitterroot Valley. The hillsides feature rare communities of cushion plants, including the Missoula phlox and bitterroots. Hikers are asked to stay on established trails and obey landowner signs and fences. The steepest part is at the beginning, then the hike is a gradual climb. From here you can reach the Peace Park (white peace sign made of stones), the historic Moon-Randolph Homestead, or loop around through Cherry Gulch back to the parking lot.
