We purchased the Nut Hut in early 2018, and have enjoyed spending weekends at art festivals and events through the year, and adding espresso to the menu. During the holidays we have loved setting up at many holiday fairs in the area, and as always will be located in the Kalispell Center Mall where we've become known for our distinctive and delicious smell of Christmas. We look forward to getting to know new customers and loyal customers from years past.
