Burger Restaurant
“Hudson's is a staple of Coeur d'Alene. They only serve burgers and pies. Funny combo I know, but it just works. The burgers are cooked right in front of you while you're waiting at their bar top and the only toppings they have are onion, pickles, and cheese. Things to note: cash only, bar top seating only and they fill up quick. It is worth the wait!! Be sure to use their spicy mustard. I'm now hungry from writing this.”

Café
“Fine Brewed is more than a cafe. They also have around 10 beers on tap and I believe are the only "All you can drink" mimosas in town (only on Sat-Sun). It is also right on Sherman Ave. so checking out shops and just sightseeing go hand and hand with Fine Brewed. ”
