Kootenai Coffee

The two-story open space, with a wood-paneled cathedral ceiling, faces east to catch the morning sun. Pastries, bagels, cookies, biscotti, and scones pair well with a "Kootenai Fog" (their version of the traditional tea-and-milk combo). For those who are interested in the finer points of espresso, try a latte or espresso pulled from their home-roasted beans. Try a soup or salad from their extensive, almost overwhelming, menu that seems to get longer each time you go in. (Feb. 2013)
