We went there for breakfast. We had the Denver omelette and the eggs and bacon both with hash browns and a scone. The portions are very large and the scones are fabulous; the service was good.

I recently had lunch with a group of my friends at Merritt's. Some of them had never been there before. We all started with the scones, a big mistake. They are so big that two would have served all four of us. They were delicious,...More

The name says it all, scones, and so many choices of them. The Dutch babies are amazing!! The omelettes, pancakes and skillet dishes are awesome too. The staff is always a pleasant group too. One of our go to spots.

A place like this is a local institution. Why? They offer something totally unique. You can get comparable or better omelettes elsewhere although their crispy hash brown are superb, but they offer something I have never had before. They call it a scone which to...More

Everything was delicious. Bowl scramble, chicken fried steak, and the scones. Order came pretty quick despite the busy small restaurant. Good server although they never came back with more water and coffee. Didn't matter-the food was so good. Don't miss the scones (comes with most...More

we are located in what was Yatesville truck and car stop, which was built in 1956. We have been here since 1976 at the time we purchased the cafe it was on the outskirts of Boise.This place has a very warm and familiar sense to it,very comfortable atmosphere
