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.

Our server made us feel like we were lucky to have her serve us. Refills on coffee and soda had to be asked for. She then removed the mug and glass with a "huff". The knives were dirty and we set them to the side which she ignored. It took longer than usual to receive our food. Overall disappointing as... More

We had breakfast and everything was fresh. The portions were large and the decor was atmospheric. It really was a great holiday vacation; Sun Valley on Christmastime.

This is the second year we've made the drive from the Boise area to Ketchum for a Mother's Day Meal here:) Each year, it gets better and better. This year we came toting 4 adults, and 3 children. We were so impressed at how personable the server was and how she managed the busy restaurant with such grace. I highly... More

Awesome food and great western atmosphere! My husband loved his breakfast burrito and I had a very delicious Cobb salad. We will surely eat here again next time we are in town. Great staff, food, and prices!

Amazing service, incredible food, and great prices. Close to everything and an easy walk from our hotel. The chicken apple sausage was delicious. A winning combination.

The oatcakes are to die for, ambiance is what you'd expect in a mountain town and the service is excellent.

We went to the Kneadery for breakfast on a recent Friday morning. We loved it! The place is pretty cool....almost like being in a hunting lodge. We sat next to the fireplace (which was roaring that cold morning) and enjoyed the atmosphere. I was seated under a buffalo head. Other hunter trophies adorned the walls. Service was prompt and friendly.... More

We went to the Kneadery for breakfast. The menu had many choices, and the portions are very generous. The special, the smoked trout omelette, was delicious. The wait staff was really nice and friendly.
