I love the Garnet's veggie scramble - the ingredients are very fresh. My husband loves the corned beef hash - definitely not canned corned beef. The servers are very friendly. It's always a treat coming here.

Outstanding. Rumor has it, there's a new owner soon. She's worked there for several year and will have some new scrumptious plates she'll introduce.

We were enjoying a morning in Coeur D’Alene and were recommended to Garnet. We truly feel that we may have hit one of the best gems in the entire region. Superb service to match the hilariously excellent food. Just such a good time.

This place is cozy and friendly. Plenty of choices and as a great bonus to an excellent classic breakfast, the best jelly or/and lemon cream I ever had on my toast. Great service and looking forward to going back again soon. Highly recommend.

Very generous portions of tasty food! Homemade jam & lemon curds for your toast! Yum. Saki Bloody Mary is tasty. This is a popular local spot, and worth the wait for a table. Staff is friendly and food is filling and delicious.
