Small cafe with big portions of delicious breakfast fare. My omelette was fluffy and full of flavor! Best iced tea, it's sometimes hard to find a big good iced tea outside of Texas!

Like many other people, we loved our breakfast here. It is reasonably priced, very tasty and fresh and the service is top notch. It's standard fare for breakfast with some additional imaginative plates as well. Our favourite breakfast place in Coeur d' Alene and Spokane.
