“Great Place for Casual Dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

It was hot and busy and we sweated the whole time (so find space downstairs).
But.
Great food- you order at the counter and they bring it to you. We had a hummus platter which was divine and the asparagus special which was even better. Superb wine selection and competent staff. I loved this place when it was Merchants. I wasn't expecting it to get better!
Famil/ vegetarian friendly!

“I wish Olive was in Coeur d'Alene!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Where to start? This is a great place. It's not the fanciest place you will ever eat, but the food is fantastic. My wife and I ate there twice for breakfast, once for lunch and once for dinner during a 5 day visit to Walla Walla for wine tasting.

The prices are reasonable and the food is beyond your standard fare. I had their fried polenta with 4 cheeses egg Benedict one morning and smoked salmon bagel the next. The polenta was delicious but a bit on the heavy side. Order this only if you are hungry or are going to split it. Both halves of the bagel were loaded with smoked salmon and the price ($9.00) was well worth it. For lunch I has a sandwich that was excellent and for dinner I settled for a bowl of cream of morel mushroom and pancetta soup. the soup was so thick you could almost eat it with a fork. It was one of the best soups I've had.

We stopped in for dinner on Memorial Day as this was one of the few places open that evening. Had great soups and very good pizza.

“great salads”

We had the seared scallop salad, it was perfect. Then you can hop over to the Marc(Marcus Whitman) and have a bowl of onion soup.
