Anxious to visit the place which holds itself out as having great German food. Went for dinner and my first clue should have been the announcement that the special was STEAK FAJITAS. The German potato salad was excellent but the sausage was lukewarm at best. Service was basically non-existant. Very disappointing.

Real food at decent prices. Get it just like you want it. Mark and Irene work hard to make their place one of quality and value. Terrific wine and beer selection, tasting clubs, simple dinners from the deli. Good imported gourmet goodies to go or eat on premises.

We have been long term customers of Daanen's, ever since before Mark and Irene built the new place. Long ago we tried the Reuben, and it was delicious - have ordered the same each time we visit the deli. The food is always fresh and tasty. If you enjoy wine, become a member of the wine club. Mark is very... More

Daanen's was one of the first places we visited when we came to check out the area before we decided to move to Northern Idaho. Mark, the owner, was warm and friendly and introduced us to the region and excellent German food! The three of us ordered deli made sandwiches and let out an audible "yum" after taking the first...

Daanen's always has great, authentic German food in a clean, comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. They also have huge, wonderful sandwiches on fresh baked breads, terrific side dishes and specials and of course, excellent beers on tap. It is one of our favorite restaurants period. Lots of locals eat here regularly. It is a hidden gem in Northern Idaho. Daanen's does everything... More

When first open, their sandwiches were to die for. Lately, there is less of everything on the sandwich and this makes it just a normal sandwich spot. Too bad - this used to be so great...

This is a great place to have a delicious custom sandwich and quiet conversation. If you want more than a sandwich you can select from an array of salads and deserts. Without question I will be back.

For this place to be called a German Delicatessen is pretty sad. If they had ever been to Germany they would be embarrassed in their business. The people working there didn't even know what schinken was.

Love the variety of foods and sandwiches the deli offers. Everyone at our table had something different and there wasn't a bite left on anyone's plate! Their potato salad with dill was amazing. Their selection of beers was great. I had braunschweiger on a fresh brotchen that was delicious! We loved the service and how fast our food was served.... More
