“Unexpected location for great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

At first you'll think that this place is a fabulous shop filled with everything you could ever want for your home, but keep walking to the back of the store and you'll find the Bistro. The decor is eclectic with a vintage fare. The menu has food that is made by hand from all-natural and organic ingredients. The service is friendly and can suggest something special. Be sure to have dessert as these are all made on-site and are simply wonderful. Then work off your meal by shopping the store.

“Best little Bistro anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Food, coffee and service is always the best. Friendliest people you'll ever meet. The store always carries very unique items. My wife won't let us go through Bonners Ferry without stopping in. Don't miss out on this experience.

“My favorite place in Bonners Ferry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Under the Sun is my favorite place in Bonners for coffee, lunch, or finding the perfect, unique gift for your favorite person. The service there is always top notch and friendly. Their lunch menu is so creative, I often wish they served dinner too. The daily specials are exactly that, truly special and always memorable...I had a grilled three cheese sandwich with mango salsa and avocado almost a year ago that I still think about...yes, it was that good! It is rare to visit the same place over and over and over and never have a bad experience, or even a single negative thing to say about. Whenever we have friends or family visiting, we always recommend Under the Sun. They have lotsof vegan/vegetarian choices that even the non-vegan/vegetarian will enjoy. They added bonus is what an awesome store it is, full of fun and unique gifts. The owners clearly have superb taste in all things. It will be a sad, sad day if they ever decide to sell or move on to something else.

“The best place for coffee in the morning and best place for lunch, too! And if you need a unique or thoughtful gift!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

This is a cool little cafe and gift shop all in an old hardware store from yesteryear! Hands down, the BEST COFFEE in town! The have a great little cafe in the back, too. Fantastic sandwiches for lunch, all organic stuff. Don't let that mislead you as dirt sandwiches....not the case at all. Everything I have had there has been really good. The service is always great, too.
