We visited on a Saturday morning and everyone was beyond pleased with their breakfast. I ordered an omelette (can't remember the exact name) but it had apple chicken sausage and it was to die for. The mimosas were perfect after a night out! This was just what we needed to get the day started! We did have to wait about... More

Get there early because if fills up fast! Hearty breakfast which was great for our day of hiking. Service was great and the decor is fun. There is outside seating that is covered and heated. I had their special Eggs Benedict with fruit and my husband had the corned beef hash and biscuits and gravy. No hunger pangs for a... More

We always stop here for breakfast at least once on our visits. Eggs Bennie is my favorite. One child always gets the corned beef hash. Service is good. Expect a short wait during high volume times. Counter seating available for those who are solo. Big portions. Sandwiches for lunch. Atmosphere is what you would expect with breakfast crowds and family... More

We had lunch here over Labor Day weekend. The service was good, and the sandwhiches were quite fresh and very good. The side salad was also very fresh. Nth is place is famous for its breakfasts. The mushroom Brie soup looked good but I did. It try it.

This restaurant has so many excellent reviews that it seems almost pointless to add yet another...but it is so good that it deserves yet another! Everything they offer on their menu is absolutely outstanding. We recently took relatives to breakfast there and I was surprised to noticed that every single plate was wiped clean. What makes that all the more... More

The Kneadery serves up the best breakfast/lunch entrees around....We tried the Eggs Benedict which simply melted in your mouth and their smoked trout club sandwich was three layers thick with bacon, lettuce, tomato ,and the thickest, juiciest smoked trout that I've ever tasted (served on their famous sourdough bread). We also ordered their smoked trout omelet: delicious. Service was unbelievably... More

Hubby had a nice breakfast with a waffle and nice fresh berries, ripe and very fresh. I had the Kneadery Eggs Benedict, with some issues- I ordered crispy hashbrowns, did not get that way. Eggs were over cooked, and solid yolks, never seen that before. Not much sauce on the plate, disappointing. What could have been a great dish was... More

A trip to Sun Valley is not complete without breakfast or brunch at The Kneadery. This last trip we went three times. Eggs Benedict, Biscuits and Gravy, Omlettes . . . all the breakfast items are terrific. And when you're done, you can count on either a cookie or a brownie bite as you leave. Like most of Sun Valley/Ketchum,... More
