“This cafe is a hidden gem”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

the cafe is located in a bookstore. It has a new-age, hippie vibe, but don't be fooled into thinking its food is plain. Their salads, soups and sandwiches are top-rate and the food is organic. The sesame dressing is the best that I've tasted. Sometimes the wait can be a little long, but the food is worth it!

“Breakfast and a book...”

Delicious and friendly. A good menu that we would like to see grow. Great atmosphere and terrific concept. Very child friendly with outdoor seating as well. Great addition to Sandpoint's fare.

“oasis in Idaho”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

This place is awesome. Super cozy ambiance with beautiful outdoor garden seating. A good size organic, vegetarian menu serves breakfast and lunch. They also have great coffee and excellent smoothies and juices. Free wifi and friendly staff. Great way to start you day and meet some locals in Sandpoint. I go there every day when I'm in town.

“Healthy and delicious food in a warm and inviting atmosphere”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

Common Knowledge cafe and bookstore is overlooked because it's in a quiet and unassuming location. The delicious food is all vegetarian and most of it is vegan. Try the Vegan Taco or the Breakfast Salad and you will not be sorry at all. They have free wi-fi and a good selection of drinks including freshly made limeade and espresso coffee.

“Hidden gem in downtown Sandpoint”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

There is no better breakfast or lunch in Sandpoint, period. Not known for great cuisine, it can be hard to find healthy choices. Common Knowledge has incredibly fresh and delicious fare, highly recommend the breakfast tacos and witches brew
