Small cafe to one side of the Cedar Street Bridge shopping center. Not very intimate, but okay for a quick bite and some train or people-watching. The menu is fairly extensive for a meal — salads, wraps, crepes, sandwiches and pizza — with a nice...More

We happily stumbled upon Cedar St Bistro while driving through Sandpoint and we’re so delighted by their food. It was unique, delicious, and flexible (half of our family are dairy and gluten-free and the other is sugar-free and we found great options for everyone). Probably...More

Town was a nice stop to stretch our legs while traveling through. Bistro serves as a fast sit down meal. Order at the counter. Sandwiches we're good. Pasta salad was great. Good options for kids. Browse the shops while you wait for your food.
