While one Coeur d’Alene coffeehouse is moving up Sherman Avenue, another has dug deeper into the core of downtown community. Calypsos Coffeehouse opened in 2008, offering their own roasted blends and a smattering of snacks for breakfast and lunch.

In 2010 the Jenicek family bought the place, added Creamery (and ice cream) to the company name, painted the exterior yellow, black and red and upped the funk factor in the spacious eatery with comfy couches, curtained-off seating areas and multicolored walls. A recently expanded menu and evening hours means breakfast-through-dinner options.

Start with the Benedict — choose two each of eggs, ham, sausage, bacon, roast beef, avocado or tomatoes on an English muffin — swimming in a rich hollandaise ($7.49). Or get your fiber fix with hot oatmeal, fruit, walnuts, brown sugar, butter and cranberries ($4.69). The Cypria ($7.99), a grilled panini with roast beef, cheddar, tomatoes, red onions, lettuce and horseradish, is one of a dozen sandwiches and wraps, all made to order. Or try the affogato, ice cream with two shots of espresso, as you listen to local musicians or open mic night.

Oh yeah: They also deliver downtown.
