We have been long term customers of Daanen's, ever since before Mark and Irene built the new place. Long ago we tried the Reuben, and it was delicious - have ordered the same each time we visit the deli. The food is always fresh and tasty.

If you enjoy wine, become a member of the wine club. Mark is very good at choosing excellent wines, and the new whiskey tastings Daanen's sponsors is well worth a try.

Daanen's was one of the first places we visited when we came to check out the area before we decided to move to Northern Idaho. Mark, the owner, was warm and friendly and introduced us to the region and excellent German food! The three of us ordered deli made sandwiches and let out an audible "yum" after taking the first bite! The bread and ingredients are always fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. The beer selection is amazing and so are the choices in wine. The service is exceptional. There are a variety of dinner specials and side items. For lunch or dinner, Daanen's doesn't disappoint.

Daanen's always has great, authentic German food in a clean, comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. They also have huge, wonderful sandwiches on fresh baked breads, terrific side dishes and specials and of course, excellent beers on tap. It is one of our favorite restaurants period. Lots of locals eat here regularly. It is a hidden gem in Northern Idaho.

Daanen's does everything right. We eat dinner there probably three or four times a month and my husband sometimes goes in for lunch during the week. The owners are usually on site and make a point to ask everyone how their meal was and how they are doing.

Anyone who says this isn't real German food hasn't been to Germany. I can't imagine not having a great meal there. It is really that good!

When first open, their sandwiches were to die for.

Lately, there is less of everything on the sandwich and this makes it just a normal sandwich spot.

Too bad - this used to be so great...

This is a great place to have a delicious custom sandwich and quiet conversation. If you want more than a sandwich you can select from an array of salads and deserts. Without question I will be back.
