Another great place in Sandpoint, it’s a fast casual restaurant where you have to go to the counter to place your order and they run the food out to you. But, it is worth it. The food comes out fresh, quick, plentiful and superb. Breakfast...More

We enjoyed two excellent breakfasts at Spuds. I'd love to say that we tried different items each time, but my husband and I both ordered the exact same thing each time: The El Diablo for me, and the Zorba for him. Plate-licking-clean-delicious both times!

Thanks for your very kind words Skislikeagirl! We are so happy you loved your breakfast both times. I did the same thing this last weekend. I ate the same breakfast twice in a row because it was so delicious. Thanks for coming in!

We were very disappointed that Spuds does not allow dogs on their outside deck. Starbuck's deck right next door is pet friendly has a connecting bridge to Spud's deck but Spud's made us move to the front parking lot which made us feel like we...More

Spuds fits in perfectly as part of the unique Idaho experience, because Idaho is famous for growing potatoes. Their vegetables taste so fresh and delicious whether they be on potatoes or in omelettes. This is a great place to take folks who are vegan, vegetarian...More

If Spud's is one thing, it's fresh. Fresh in the sense that we make everything from scratch, from every dressing, sauce and chutney, to elaborate soups and outstanding desserts. Spud's is also fresh in the sense in that our classic menu is continually reinspired by worldly flavors, regional style and seasonal ingredients. We adore the sophisticated touch of the West's best restaurants, and honor the casual comforts of small town North Idaho. Located in picturesque downtown Sandpoint, Idaho, Spud's Waterfront's reputation extends beyond the shores of Lake Pend Oreille as an excellent restaurant for locals and travelers alike. Dock your boat on the boardwalk, bike up from the beach, pull in on your way to the mountain, walk in before catching a show at the Panida.
