I’d Give 6-Stars if I Could.

“Decided to try after seeing the excellent reviews. When we pulled up, we had 2nd thoughts. It looked to be small & a little run down from the outside. So glad we proceeded to go inside. Omg, the breakfast was so so good. We had chicken fried steak with sausage, eggs & pancakes. Everything was so flavorful. The portion sizes were huge. I'd give a 6 star if I could!”

So Glad We Came.

“After reading the wonderful reviews on Yelp, we decided to give the Hoot Owl a try and we are so glad we did! We arrived around 5:30 on a Sunday morning and had the place to ourselves. It quickly filled up and seems to be a favorite spot of the locals. We tried a little of everything after seeing the reviews. We ordered a cinnamon roll and French toast which were both to die for! We have been craving them ever since. My husband ordered an omelet and I had a side of hashbrowns and bacon. Everything was fantastic!!! We went back the next day for a late breakfast but ended up ordering lunch. I had the Turkey Crunch with fries and my husband had the Italian Chicken with crisscuts. Both were fantastic! We can't wait to go back and try more of their extensive menu. 
The Hoot Owl Cafe is definitely a little dive-y hole-in-the-wall kind of place. Don't let the outside of the restaurant deter you. It is absolutely wonderful and you will not regret giving them a try!”

Hometown Feel. Great Breakfast.

“This is the kind of place I could have breakfast every day, down home local feel, very friendly and attentive servers and really good food. A lot of variety on the menu. This will definitely be our breakfast place when we visit Sandpoint!”

Hands Down, Best Breakfast.

"Hands down the greatest breakfast place I've ever been to. There are plenty of good eateries out there but the Hoot Owl consistently has the best food going through the entire menu which I have done. So.e places have one famous dish. Hoot owl has practically all of them. Very cozy with amazing biscuits and gravy. Their eggs are always cooked right. Chicken fried steak tastes fresh. Redneck Benedict is a great dish too"

Left an Impression.

“From the thin blue line flag sticker on their front door to greet you, to the cute owls throughout the place, to the very friendly staff, this place made a great first impression. Then the breakfast arrived, yum! Great prices & large portions. What more can you ask for?"

See for Yourself.

“You simply get service with a smile and delicious food at a great price but what I love about this place is the contagious happy atmosphere that the staff creates because they're just happy. You feel welcome when you walk through the door and not just a regular thank you for dining but more like you just walked in to a family gathering and they're happy to see you. You just have to experience it for yourself!”
