So Good!!!

We enjoyed our 2nd visit. Breakfast again. Hubby had the hash again, which is to die for! I had a smoked salmon omelette that was fantastic! LOVE this little whole in the wall. Very good, fresh ingredients and excellent staff.

We loved Garnet Cafe. My teenage son is eating vegan these days, and they were able to accommodate him with stir fries instead of eggs, soy milk and more. Very creative omelet options, green eggs and ham was great! Wonderful biscuit. Small setting in multiple rooms. Would definitely recommend and return.

The Garnet Cafe is a family run, and family farmed, restaurant located away from the main shopping area in Coeur D'Alene. Located in what appears to be a small converted home, the Garnet feels cozy and intimate. The staff (who move with a speed to be noted) are efficient, friendly and helpful. The amazing food is fresh and directly from... More

We went prior to going to the airport. Service was good and the various omlettes we ordered were very good and large enough that we were able to have them for a late meal later as well. The restaurant is open for breakfast and closes at 2pm..

I really enjoyed breakfast here. $12 for a 4-meat omelet with potatoes and bread, with a delightful lemon curd and berry jam. The meat was raised free range on a local farm. Will certainly come back next time I'm in town.

A lot of my friends and family love this place. I went once and probably won't go back again. The toast was less than desirable and the food was kind of bland for me. Don't take my word for it though, give it a try. Maybe you'll love it like most the people I know.

Always a favorite breakfast place. Lemon curd is to die for, rosemary bread too. Vege omelette is quite tasty, and I am not a vegetarian. Last trip there I tried a Star Garnet. My, oh my...can't wait to go back for another

My husband and I love this place. The restaurant itself used to be a house so it's not very big. You may need to wait but it's worth it. Nice big hearty portions. GET THE ROSEMARY BREAD!

We were told the Garnet Cafe was the best place for breakfast. We got seated and waited on right away even though the place was busy. Wonderful service! The waitress was very nice and very fast! I tried the yogurt, fresh fruit and granola. My husband tried the Benewah omelet with ham, cheese, green pepper and onion. He also tried... More
