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.

Best breakfast in town

No need to search any further. Hands down the best breakfast in Ketchum. Generous portions, great selection, good coffee and priced for an average person. Can't go wrong.

One of the best breakfast places ever. Visited twice and had excellent service both times, Clifton and Nancy. Very creative menu and fine quality food. Eggs benedict and Corn Beef hash. Very cool atmosphere. A must visit.

Excellent selection of breakfast specials and omelettes plus salads, soups and sandwiches. Bloody Marys, Margaritas, Mimosas, wine, beer, sodas, juices, tea and coffee are available including a locally roasted coffee. Daily specials. Serving size is huge; the half portions are the size of a full portion elsewhere. A half portion of their special French toast with caramelized apples was four... More

Great food and price. Always packed out! We waited so long for our lunch that the waiter brought a tiny coffee cake to share as an apology. Nice decor. Nice location. Breakfast and lunch menu is great. They bake their bread fresh each day. Would go more often if the wait wasn't so long. But that is the price you... More

Definitely the place to breakfast in town! A bit of a wait, but worth it. Food was fantastic, some star sitings while we ate, and brownies on the way out. We'll definitely be back next time in town.

We usually find this place on days that it's closed. Our bad luck this time when we hit Ketchum we actually got to eat breakfast here three times. ( So you know we liked it.) The food was good, service excellent, and the place is spotlessly clean. It looks exactly like a place in Idaho should look with mounted head... More

Their breakfasts are incredible. Lots of unusual omelet choices and eggs benedict options. Waffles and pancakes are great. It is also open for lunch and their soups and sandwiches are great. Love this place. Friendly, and casual.

One of Ketchum's best known and popular breakfast restaurants. No reservations and is particularly crowded on Sundays between 9 and 11. The decor is wonderful and whimsical and kids will enjoy the big standing bear and a authentic cowboy sitting at a table. The dishes are hearty and the eggs benedict are perfect.

We went in for a late beakfast around 11am. It wasn't crowded, but we were seated at one corner with my chair jutting out into a passage way. The passage way was quite busy, with staff walking back and forth. We ordered beakfast, which was not bad (so so). But the coffee was horrible. At $3, I would expect something... More
