Places You Can’t Eat In Butte Anymore

Butte began humbly enough as a gold camp, but quickly grew into a bustling cosmopolitan city where working and upper class citizens found great places to eat. There have been a number of restaurants that came and went over the years. Here are a few once-magnificent restaurants that were the bee knees back in the day.

Also known as the “Chew and Be Gone Again” café by locals, the Chequamegon served delicious food on 27 North Main. Another notable café was the Success Café that could only serve 4 people at one time because it was so small. It was a local joke in the Democratic town that the Republicans held their meetings and banquets at the Success Café. At one point, the tiny shop had a sign that read, “If you don’t eat here, I will vote for Hoover.

During a time when a lady’s reputation was everything, the Creamery Café advertised a booth especially for women that assured local ladies that eating there would not impugn their honor. When people were hungry for ravioli, spaghetti, or friend chicken, they went to the Rocky Mountain Café. This restaurant was located in an Italian neighborhood called Meaderville that was eventually demolished when the Berkeley Pit copper mine expanded.

Lastly, the museum Mai Wah used to be a noodle parlor located on West Mercury Street that sold hot Chinese food for those who couldn’t sit long enough to eat it. Today, the restaurant is a museum that houses the history of Chinese people that immigrated to the area.

While these restaurants are now no more, Butte is still a place where you can get a great meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. A short walk around town will uncover many of the city’s hidden food gems.
