Stopped for breakfast after being told it's a must-stop and it didn't disappoint. The owner was a constant presence, welcoming and talking to the diners, which made even visitors feel at home. Food was substantial (pancakes the size of an entire plate) and delicious (requested cripsy bacon and to my surprsied, it actually came to me crispy!). If ordering the breakfast combo, be aware the bacon/sausage and eggs are served on top of the pancakes, so if you don't want your food all on one plate (i.e., if you have runny eggs and don't want the yolk all over your pancakes), ask for your side items on a separate plate. Would definitely recommend for anyone traveling through Coeur d'Alene!

A local CDA person told us this was the best breakfast in town,,,and they were right. Got a great table within seconds of entering the restaurant. The service and food was excellent. I can see why this place gets such rave reviews. On my must go again list for Cour d' Alene.

Flash forward ten years and Michael D’s is as popular as ever. Every day, almost every available table is filled with a mish-mash of people all pulled in by the lure of friendly service and satisfying meals. Breakfast is heavenly, but lunch is served here as well, ending strictly at 2PM daily. I love the habanero hot sauce Burger with melted blue cheese crumbles, and the Teriyaki Tuna sandwich, wherein the soy sauce and ginger dressing brightly contrasts the sweetness of the mandarin oranges. The lunch salads are huge, including the Lake City Salad, with grilled chicken, candied walnuts, fresh pear, and feta served atop spring greens and tossed in maple vinaigrette. Delish! They also serve a mean Idaho Rainbow Trout, pan-seared in lemon and garlic butter and served on a pile of spinach fettuccine.

Along with humongous waffles and pancakes served with a variety of fruit toppings, the big deal for breakfast here is the omelets. Each is named after an abstract emotion or state of being. “Seclusion” is simply your choice of American, Swiss, Cheddar or Jack Cheese wrapped in a fluffy blanket of eggs so fresh you’d swear they were running an actual hen house out back behind the kitchen. “Courageous” is one of my regular favorites, wickedly spicy with fresh sliced jalapeños, which work brilliantly with the creamy whipped cream cheese to make an intriguing hot vs. cold dining experience. Scrumptious, but only for the brave. If you’re a vegetarian, you might want to check out the “Cautious” omelet, which mixes steamed veggies and jack cheese with fresh made salsa. I’m not sure if the mood sets the omelet or the omelet sets the mood, but choices like “Bashful”, “Creative”, “Aspiring”, and “Shameless” blur the line between menu and personality test.

We were on vacation from California for just a few days when we went to Michael D's. LOVED IT! It's kind of a country kitchen type of place. The french toast was awesome, and everything we had both times was just fantastic. We went the first time because we read about it on TripAdvisor, and as soon as we took our first bite we said we HAD to come back before we left town. So we did! the second morning we were there, the owner was there ushering back loads of people from the community who were there for an Ironman meeting event coming up. We figured if all those people chose Michael D's to meet at, we must not be the only ones who love it so much!
