Description: The Kneadery has been locals' and visitors' favorite spot for breakfast...
The Kneadery has been locals' and visitors' favorite spot for breakfast and lunch for nearly 40 years. Established in 1974, The Kneadery combines wholesome fresh food with a rustic Idaho atmosphere. Whether you're headed out for a day of hiking, or spent the morning skiing the slopes, you'll want to fuel up with a wholesome nutritious meal at The Kneadery. All meals start with the freshest ingredients-locally baked organic breads, farm fresh, cage-free eggs, seasonal fruit and top quality meats. From the huge omelets and pancakes, to the fresh salads and burgers, there's something for everyone. Great food is just the beginning at The Kneadery. Service with a smile and the authentic decor complete the package. Owners Duffy and Sheila Witmer have been collecting the Western artwork that fills The Kneadery and The Pioneer Saloon for decades. Come see why so many have made The Kneadery, the best breakfast and lunch in town since 1974.

Great food and service as always! We love this place and the food is fantastic. Michaels Omelet is my favorite and if you can get there in time for some blueberry muffins, you wont be disappointed!

Found the restaurant by asking a local for a recommendation. Delicious, attractively presented food. Ate outdoors in a charming, eclectic atmosphere. Service was good.

We were really looking forward to breakfast at Kneadery but left disappointed. Service was slow and not particularly friendly. We waited a long time for coffee and water refills. When our meals finally showed, the eggs and toast were cold. We gave up on getting the check and finally went to the register.

It took us a while to find a place with Gluten-free breakfast options. The Kneadery has a wonderful atmosphere with great outdoor dining and friendly staff. The Gluten-free French Toast was delicious! My Sweetheart and I were very impressed and enjoyed a pleasant brunch.

If you want a special breakfast, please visit this chain. We've also been to the one in Park City, UT, which is more of a bakery first. I had the veggie benedict and my husband had the regular eggs benedict. Always ask for your hollandaise sauce on the side unless you want and instant heart attack! With this they serve... More

In the Sun Valley area, a restaurant won't last unless it's good. The Kneadery has been around for quite awhile!! My wife had the Eggs Bennie, and I had an omelet with a side of bacon. They did not disappoint... It was our first trip to the restaurant, but we will be back!
