Whether you're headed out for a day of hiking, or spent the morning skiing the slopes, you'll want to fuel up with a wholesome nutritious meal at The Kneadery. All meals start with the freshest ingredients-locally baked organic breads, farm fresh, cage-free eggs, seasonal fruit and top quality meats.

“Lively Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

If you like traditional & large breakfasts, then this is your kind of place. Free coffee while you wait for a table. Service is really friendly. The kitchen is a bit slow.

“Solid place for brunch!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

I think I've eaten here every trip to Ketchum and always happy I did. The food seems to hit the country-breakfast spot everyone needs after a few nights in the backcountry or a few days on the hill.

“Good food GREAT coffee!! Server could have smiled a little.”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were told by several people to go to the Kneadery for a large hearty breakfast...they were not wrong. Since it is slack season in Sun Valley, it was no problem getting seated right away at 9 am. However, when we left around 10, there were people waiting outside. The food was good and plenty of it. I asked the server if I could only have two eggs with breakfast instead of the standard 3. I thought she had muttered something affirmative, but got 3 when the plate arrived. She was curt but efficient. No smiles at all. The coffee they serve was great and she kept us filled. We would definitely eat here again but next time I might ask the server to smile a bit more. It might get her a better tip.

“Outstanding breakfast...everything rocked!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We arrived on a Sunday morning and waded through the crowd at the door. We were advised to expect a twenty minute wait, but ten minutes later we were following the pleasant hostess to our table. We each ordered coffee and an omelette. Mine was named after the founder, apple gouda sausage with spinach. It was wonderful. My husband and son had Denver omlettes and they were equally happy. Total price for breakfast (pre-tip) was $52, not cheap but what we expected in Ketchum. The service was excellent and the food was fresh and tasty. We would definately return.
