At the HEART of Sandpoint is this great spot for dining, shopping, and yes...watching the annual 'LOST IN THE 50's" antique car show. It was fabulous, and oh so nostalgic. For RV owners, stay at Bonner Fairgrounds...a peaceful wooded area with RV hookups.

We went to the Cedar St. Bistro after church with some friends while visiting Sandpoint for the first time. The variety of food was super and was reasonably priced. I enjoyed the Italian grinder sandwich and my husband liked the huckleberry pie. So many desserts,...More

I ordered the Ruben sandwich was inedible. I ended up eating the bread and cheese because the corned beef had not been cut correctly, was tough and full of fat and gristle. The owner/manager(?) came over after my husband told her and she said that...More

Love the creative, freshly made panini sandwiches here. With the delicious lunch items, the amazing gelato and the always very friendly service, plus really cute setting - it's a great spot to enjoy lunch while out perusing Sandpoint.

Great place to get a small breakfast or lunch. The girls are super friendly and the food is amazing. Don't miss their breakfast crepes. It takes a bit of time but worth the wait.

Thanks for the review, Nancy! We think our employees are the best too (but we're a little biased). If you love the breakfast crepe be sure to try our lunch options for the crepes as well! Hope to see you again soon!

Coffee, pastry and some R&R. We've stopped here on a few different occasions while travelling through and have never been disappointed. Interesting shops and public washrooms makes this a perfect stop for the traveller.
