Love the creative, freshly made panini sandwiches here. With the delicious lunch items, the amazing gelato and the always very friendly service, plus really cute setting - it's a great spot to enjoy lunch while out perusing Sandpoint.

Great place to get a small breakfast or lunch. The girls are super friendly and the food is amazing. Don't miss their breakfast crepes. It takes a bit of time but worth the wait.

Coffee, pastry and some R&R. We've stopped here on a few different occasions while travelling through and have never been disappointed. Interesting shops and public washrooms makes this a perfect stop for the traveller.

There's plenty of competition in town for your Morning Joe, but the Cedar St Bistro stands out with excellent in-the-moment creations as well as high quality baked goods and light breakfast noshes.

If you're in the mood for coffee AND food - this is the place to go. They have crepes and pizza that can be made gluten free. They have wraps and sandwiches too I believe, but I always go straight for the savory crepe. Nice seating area on the bridge with cucumber water or lemon water (or plain, if that's... More

We had the spinach salad and a pesto based pizza. The food was excellent and the view was terrific. The restaurant and shops are built on an old bridge. Great views and great food.

We grabbed a quick lunch here while we were shopping and we're so pleased with the amazing food! Also loved that I could have a glass of wine in the "mall". Although there are a lot of empty spaces this is a great location and a fun place to shop.

We enjoyed a great sandwich called the grinders...which included a choice of salads and gelato for dessert...for about $10. What a deal...and it was enough for the two of us to share. A great spot to sit on the bridge and also do a bit of shopping after lunch.

This place is much more than a coffee shop. It's a perfect place to meet for lunch , especially when the weather is cold and cloudy. The whole place is full of light & sits above Sand Creek. They offer soups, salads, and a whole lot more. The espresso drinks are delicious and the variety is amazing. I love this... More
