We had the most delicious breakfast at this cafe. The food is fresh and perfectly prepared. My breakfast frittata was amazing. Their sourdough bread is incredible and the homemade blackberry jam was so good. Our server was polite and accommodating. It was like taking a...trip to France without having to get on a plane!More

The worst experience I've ever had at a restaurant. Never in my life have I been stereotyped or talked down to like I was at this place. We got up and walked out. Complete disrespect. Especially for a place that has "gender neutral" bathrooms..More

The food was so yummy. Simple, clean, and delicious. Great artwork on the wall, AND there are water color paints and colored pencils to make your own artwork on the table cover. Lots of natural light, clean environment. Overall great experience!

My wife and I stopped in to satisfy a curiosity, not having been there before. We had ice tea and a soft drink to go with my sandwich and her salad. They don't have gluten free bakery items which my wife has need of. She...enjoyed her salad and my sandwich was good although they seemed a bit pricey.More

Yummmmmy!!! Passing through Idaho Falls and decided to give 1 Fine Cafe a try for breakfast I’m glad I did. Only complaint: it was really hard to decide what to get. Lol. Everything sounded amazing!! We tried the first item on the menu. I think...it was called Croque Madame!! We also had french toast and a few pastries. Loved it all. It was a cross between home made and gourmet cooking. The atmosphere was fun. Loved the local artists’ paintings and the paints on the table. What a unique touch!! We also got to talk with the owner. David is sure passionate about food and his vision. We might just have to pass through on our way back!! This is truly 1 Fine Cafe!!More

So this morning is the second time I’ve been for breakfast and the fifth or sixth time overall. Everything I’ve tried has been really good. I haven’t discover a favorite thing yet just because I’ve liked everything I’ve tried. They serve wonderful coffee and I...love the warm apple galette with ice cream.More

This charming new cafe will surprise you with a menu not usually seen in Idaho Falls. Panzanella (bread salad), mac and cheese topped with crisped pork jowls—both delicious! Bread made in-house as are all items in the pastry case. We thoroughly enjoyed the apple pie....Welcoming staff. Unpretentious.More

We recently had breakfast here and enjoyed out time here. The service is great and everyone seems to be knowledgeable regarding the offerings. This is a bit different than many of the more"traditional" restaurants. The servings are plated very well but I found the seasonings...needed to improve a bit, but I do realize not everyone has the same taste as I. We have only been here once and it was for breakfast so we do plan to return to have Lunch or Brunch to give it a fair appraisal.More
