Such a wonderful find! The food was so good we drove through and stopped in one day and came back again the next to try more menu items as well as talk to the lovely couple that owns the restaurant. We had the Biscuits and Gravy, pastrami sandwich, turkey sandwich and salad.....oh yes and an Apple Barrel desert....AMAZING! The food was fresh and yummy...give it a try!

Mean. Rude. Food was mediocre. I felt like I walked in and was almost like being invited into a cult. Hyper religious and controlling of the woman there. Was extremely creeped out by the man at the counter. Felt like a front cover for something.

The Belgian waffle, bananas foster, and cinnamon apple pull-aparts were all tasty, and we had a nice chat with the owners while we waited for our order.We were a little hesitant to enter at first because the storefront and TV programming seemed ultra conservative, but the owners were very welcoming and the menu looked appealing. On top of that, we left with a framed, signed Mets jersey in addition to our breakfast!The decor actually comprises a large assortment of interesting items for sale. It's worth a visit to get a taste of small town Idaho.

This tiny, unassuming restaurant located in downtown Mountain Home is run by a really nice couple and whips up delicious sandwiches and fantastic baked goods. After several recommendations I was ecstatic when the opportunity to stop by finally came. I ordered an Italian sandwich (lettuce, tomato, onion, banana peppers on toasted ciabatta, $6.99) and my husband got the "Special" (turkey, bacon, lettuce, Swiss cheese and house ranch, $6.99), to go. We also grabbed some goodies, an Old-Fashioned Baked Apple Dumpling (served warm with caramel sauce, $5.99) and Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Whoopie Pie. We both LOVED our sandos. They were both stuffed with delicious, fresh meats and veggies and the bread was perfectly toasted. They were decent sizes, not suitable for sharing though. And why would you want to share? They're too good. The desserts were astounding!!! The Whoopie Pie was extremely rich, highly recommend a side of milk. The cream cheese filling was light and fluffy. The cookies tasted fresh. The real winner was the Apple Dumpling. I kid you not, this thing is ginormous. It's so heavy! And total unexpected. It's not just any dumpling. This thing's got an entire peeled and cooked apple snuggled inside a moist, cinnamon pastry shell similar to pie crust. Drizzled with the caramel sauce, it is SOOOO GOOOOOD! It's a can't miss. Who cares about the calories, don't walk out without one of these bad boys. Overall, I will be back for more! Sorry for bad pics, sandwiches in cars are hard to eat let alone snap a shot of. Note: The owners are proud Christians. A lot of religious memorabilia throughout the shop. But please, don't be a judgmental prick. These are nice people. A business has the right to decorate their place as they want. If you don't like it, just go somewhere else. :)

I'll address the food first of all. Mediocre is probably the best description. Lots of packet/pre-made stuff. One of our party had biscuits and gravy. Best guestimate is that the gravy came from a packet. All other food was pretty much the same quality. Now for the crazy stuff. If you want to be bombarded with the craziness that is "Newsmax" and listen to some qanon conspiracy nonsense then this place if for you. The decor can best be described as a thrift shop, with a dead elk head looming over the proceedings. While I always admire a person of faith it can go a bit far. Religion is a fine thing when taken in moderation. Here it is not. You are bombarded with it from every angle. If none of that puts you off - by all means give it a go. It's possible that we just came on a bad day. If however you want a meal with less crazy I would suggest finding somewhere else. The caveat here of course is that this is Idaho ...

We stopped in quickly on our way through town - and couldn't have been more delighted with the quality of food. Super nice and accommodating owner. I highly recommend this place!

We were driving back to Nampa from seeing the Oregon trail museum at Glenn's Ferry and wanted to stop for a light lunch. This is a sweet little small town deli and bakery! We had the cinnamon apple pull-apart, monster cookie, Ruben sandwich and the special. Everything was really good! The gentleman was very funny and great conversation

Great food, fun atmosphere, nice people. A little mom & pop's shop in a small town. Worth the stop!

Russ S.

Great find, owner Jeff is always engaging and pleasant. While the menus is a bit limited, everything we've ever had was very good.

We stopped in for a quick bite while on the road back to Denver. We were met with a smile and incredible customer service. The food was amazing, but the cole slaw and potato salad in my opinion could win awards..truly memorable. We'll be back anytime we drive through the area again!! Honestly I'm writing this review as a reminder to myself for future trips!! Keep up the good work and see ya soon!!

Loved it! Food is good, and friendly people. The food is homemade and feels more like you got invited to someone's home rather then a restaurant. Delicious and will be one of our new spots to go to all the time. It's our first week in Idaho and already love it!

A sweet couple owns this place. She's a great cook and he does everything else. I had a chicken Alfredo panini, which turned out to be quite good. The Italian sodas at the next table looked really good, too.
