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.

Awesome breakfast!

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.

If the kitchen was still in town I might have trouble calling the Kneadery the best... but everyone knows the Kneadery rocks it. A MUST for newbies and a fave for slack too.

The first time I heard of the Kneadery, it was because a MovieStar/FormerGovernor met his son's new girlfriend PopStar/TrainWreck here for breakfast. But don't let that discourage you from eating here if you find yourself in Ketchum. The food is very good and the service is excellent (even if I'm not a movie star). It's a small place and I...

We went here twice during our 5 night stay in the Sun Valley area. The french toast, belgium waffles, eggs benedict and Rocky Mountain Basic breakfasts were all delicious. The atmosphere is great with fireplace, stuffed moose, bears etc. giving it a lodge feeling. Go early…they open at 8:00, get there by 9ish, otherwise there will be a wait and... More

The food and service here was very good. I had an omlette with hash browns and toast. It was delicious. Small town feel to the restaurant and the food had that homemade quality to it.

The French toast and the veggie egg Benedict are SO GOOD. There are lots of other good things but that is what we happened to eat today. The Kneadery has a great breakfast. Lunch is pretty good, but breakfast is what keeps us coming back.

We really enjoy the ambiance of The Kneadery and their Blackstone Eggs Benedict. Can't say we have ever eaten lunch there but we do eat breakfast there often.
