Best Coffee Hut

The Loose Caboose

Readers' Pick

Why is The Loose Caboose Missoula’s best coffee hut? Because of its customer service, says barista Amber Lawson. The friendly baristas (see next category) come to know people on a first-name basis. “We even know their dogs’ names,” she says. Oh yeah? What was the name of the wiener dog that came through in the truck moments ago? “That was Joe.” Impressive. Just as impressive is the baristas’ knowledge of the coffee they sell at four locations around town. Owner Malcolm Lowe puts the staff through coffee workshops so they become coffee bean connoisseurs. That’s helpful when you’re trying to choose what to drink from the dozens of steamy (or iced) options. It all adds up to more locals (and their dogs) trusting The Loose Caboose to feed their favorite addiction. The Loose Caboose: Multiple locations; 829-8333
