Steve’s Cafe to expand southward with additional location at old JB’s site

Helenans will have to loosen their belts a notch to make room for a second Steve’s Cafe, set to open in October at 630 N. Montana Ave., the former location of JB’s restaurant.

Known for homestyle breakfasts at 1225 E. Custer, Steve’s Cafe’s weekend customers often overflow into the parking lot as they wait for a chance to taste homemade sausage, huckleberry stuffed French toast and other dishes. Owner Steve Vincelli hopes the additional location, with a 105-seating capacity, will curb that overflow, as well as bring in new customers from the south side of town.
