Kind of a cramped little spot, but the food was good and the staff was nice. Get there early it does fill up fast.

Eclectic and interesting menu. Amazing food. Great decor. Small waiting area but worth the wait. Great place for breakfast. Need to go back to try the lunch menu-hopefully sooner rather than later.

After reading a couple reviews and knowing we had a bit of a wait, this place did not disappoint. I had the Duck sausage and eggs, and she had the Hayden omelet. Delightful! We only spent one night in Coeur d'Alene, but this is where I would go for breakfast again when we return. Make it your breakfast destination if... More

The reviews for the Garnet were good so we decided to try it. The wait for a table was about 15 to 20 minutes. The food was very good and they offered wine and sake drinks, which was surprisingly pleasant. The omelet selection was good and more than enough to satisfy. A great place for breakfast.

A simple set up with about 12-14 tables and 4-5 bar seats that serves amazing breakfast! A local favorite for sure, this was a great stop that my husband and I made this morning for breakfast. We expected to wait since it is a small but popular establishment. Larger parties may have a long wait. We waited about 15 minutes,... More

My wife and I had an hour to kill with no kids in tow. So we gave the Garnet a try. My wife is on a no grains or starch diet and was super happy with veggie medley that tasted awesome... She would not stop talking about it for the last 3 day... Have to take her back again soon.... More

I recently had the opportunity to check this little cafe out, it did not disappoint! My girlfriend and I had a little trouble finding it but that's normal. I had the French toast, which was made with focaccia bread, yum! I also ordered a side of bacon which was the nice thick good stuff! Then I spotted a sign for... More

Garnet is my favorite Breakfast spot is CDA, and I try to eat here a few times, every trip. I love the Hayden, and their bacon is always outstanding! Don't forget to try the Rosemary Bread toasted with the lemon curd and berry jam! Come early or you're in for a wait!

We were heading out of town. Wanting breakfast before we headed to the airport. Used Yelp to search for a neighborhood cafe. The Garnet Cafe seemed interesting. It provided to be outstanding. Fun, quirky kind of place. Good food. They bring your bill in a Span can. Fun. Our server, Genna was great. Observing the others, I'm sure they are... More
