Comfort food for breakfast, yeah!

Food great and lots of it. Service friendly and attentive. Christmas shop was kind of like Cracker Barrel on a holiday theme. Chai tea at the coffee shop was a little lacking.

We had breakfast (of course) early Sunday morning and it was wonderful. My daughter took a cinnamon home and honestly, she ate it for three days.

During our recent visit to McCall, Idaho we discovered this gem of a place along the way. We arrived around 9am and decided to go inside for some breakfast. The food here is wonderful and BIG portions are their specialty! The atmosphere is delightful and cheerful inside and out. The pancakes are the same size as your plate and were... More

The log structured building houses not only a mountain style breakfast restaurant that also serves lunch and dinner, but a separate Christmas and gift boutique shop. Our visit was for the purpose of breakfast. We were greeted and seated very quickly. The waitress announced herself and set us up with our selected beverages promptly (there is no alcohol served on... More

This is a fantastic summer eatery with beautiful flower display. A great value is to be had on the breakfast menu in particular. Go early because it is very popular. Lunch is less crowded. Great soups from scratch and the sandwiches are terrific as well

My husband and I had heard great things about the Pancake House. When we visited on March 9, the restaurant was nearly empty. Our waitress was good, but the food was nasty. I ordered French toast and hash browns and he had eggs and bacon. We both noticed that all the food tasted like it had been cooked in stale... More

Pancake House is a MUST when visiting McCall. The plate sized pancakes, loaded hashbrowns, and potato pancakes are amazing. Prices are very reasonable as well. Be warned there is usually a wait to get seated, but it is so worth it!

This is a great place for families. There are lots of food choices. When we were there it was very busy but the service was efficient and friendly. The Christmas Shop is wonderful.
