Riggin's Best

I drive through Riggins several times a year from the Spokane area to visit my 100 year-old Dad in Nampa, ID and also to fish for steelhead and salmon in the Riggins area. I always look forward to Kate's wonderful biscuits and gravy, bacon and eggs I always order for breakfast. The atmosphere is... read more

What a great spot for lunch. The food and service were both spot on! Great service and Kate is a kick to talk to. The Caesar wrap was full of yummy vegetables, feta cheese and chicken. The BLT was delicious. Breakfast is highly touted. Wish we lived closer to try breakfast too.

Kate's Cattlemen's singlehandedly made Riggins my favorite town in Idaho. The river is amazing, and the people are friendly, and Cattlemen's is the cherry on top! Kate's attitude might be all business but her food is all love! Whatever the special of the day is will be the best thing you eat all month, and don't miss dessert, especially if... More

Great place to eat. Kate who was trained at Julliard, but made her career as a fishing guide is an excellent hostess and cook. She shared local lore and made us feel at home. Her biscuits and gravy are wonderful. Homemade jam with the toast was a plus as well. Don't pass this place by.

For steelheaders with an early start time this is your best option. Opens sometime between 5:00-5:30 and does a great job with breakfast. Kate was the sole waitress and cook while I was there and she cheerfully took care of a handful of tables, getting us fed and out the door.

We always eat breakfast at Kates when we have guests in town, and this is the only place in town I would recommend for my guests to have breakfast. She is a one woman show and does an excellent job! She is in that resturant every morning by 5 am making homemade bread etc.. preparing for her clients. Kate is... More

Bert and Kate's is now just Kate's, and if you're looking for the sign it's the "Cattlemen's." It looks good and it smells good but we didn't eat there. It's a small place and it was jammed with people celebrating Kate's mom's birthday. She recommended the Seven Devils (see that review).
