Local spot on the Cedar Street Bridge. Walk up, order and they'll bring it to the table. However, they have a superb wine bar tucked away that's not to be missed! Do not overlook the "Tapas" menu. Small portions great for couples to share. The...More

Town was a nice stop to stretch our legs while traveling through. Bistro serves as a fast sit down meal. Order at the counter. Sandwiches we're good. Pasta salad was great. Good options for kids. Browse the shops while you wait for your food.

At the HEART of Sandpoint is this great spot for dining, shopping, and yes...watching the annual 'LOST IN THE 50's" antique car show. It was fabulous, and oh so nostalgic. For RV owners, stay at Bonner Fairgrounds...a peaceful wooded area with RV hookups.
