Chicken fried steak was excellent as was the coffee. Our waitress was also very friendly and accommodating.

We were driving around Lake Coeur d Alene and got hungry so we stopped even though it looked crowded. Lots of regulars it seems. Great food and warm pine paneled atmosphere. Had pesto eggs benedict and it was great. Came with a side of fresh fried potatoes.

We were pulling a camping trailer and had trouble finding parking. I think it was Michael that ran out and showed us where to park and even helped direct us to a parking place. After we parked and got into the restaurant there was a line. We were prepared to wait, but he'd already got us a table all set... More

A friend that we came to visit suggested we eat here. Great suggestion! The portions are huge and it tastes great. The blueberry pancake covers the whole plate. The biscuits are huge and so fluffy! Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. I'm not a coffee drinker, but my husband said it was really good! Nice homey, cabin atmosphere. Local... More

The setting is pure North Idaho. Cute little place popular with the locals. Good hearty standard foods. Not for the gourmet unless he wants to "down home it". Staff friendly.

While visiting coeur d'Alene we had breakfast twice at this quaint local diner. I had an omelette the first time and went back again for the pancakes. They were both great. The coffee was very good and the staff both friendly and efficient. The prices were typical for a breakfast place. I would highly recommend it.

We were in Coeur d' Alene for two mornings and ended up having breakfast here both mornings and really enjoying both visits. We shared one entree and a cup of fruit and it was plenty. The owner is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in New York and served as a chef for a number of restaurants before... More

Everytime I go to Coeur d'Alene, I come here. If you have to wait, it's worth it. They have an awesome breakfast menu, great coffee, excellent service. Sometimes it gets a little too crazy busy but that's why I come here.

While the music can be too loud for me, I love Micheal D's food, service, and atmosphere. The omelets are divine. Try the Bold or the Aspiring. My husband and I share one (which he orders) while I order a pancake or fruit with yogurt (also yummy) to avoid the split plate fee. The staff is friendly, but not overbearing... More
