Great environment for Spending some time with friends and family

This is a great area and the Sherman Avenue shopping and browsing cannot be beat. Try Hudson's for the best burgers but bring cash, they do not take creadit cards

Lake Coeur d'Alene is a great place to enjoy swimming, boating, camping and fishing. Much of the lake is surrounded by forests and pristine, undeveloped wilderness. A must-see while in North Idaho.

I'm a local...this is a perfect setting..but, everytime we visit we leave smelling from hair to clothes of heavy burned grease..I realize it's a bakery but can certain hot plates be cleaned or turned of and not burn oils all the time?..also the vents and ceiling need attention...I'm wondering if the whole cafe couldn't use a thorough cleaning..thank you, otherwise...

A beautiful town. So many outdoor activities. The fireworks displays are "famous". Don't pass this up.

Lake Coeur d'Alene is a beautiful lake and especially spectacular in the winter. All the blue water and snow covered trees that surround the lake are out of this world.
