First, the bad news: Yakburgers are not good. At least the ones served here are not. Our waitress boasted that they were made from Tibetan yaks, raised locally; but either Idaho-raised yaks are way too lean or whatever juiciness their meat contained got cooked away, for the yakburger I nibbled at was sawdust-dry and pretty much devoid of flavor.

Most everything else at Di Luna’s is very good, a few items memorable. In that latter category, I would put breakfast potatoes, which are either crisp and starchy hash browns or sweet potato hash browns that are just barely sweet. Continue reading

Most everything else at Di Luna’s is very good, a few items memorable. In that latter category, I would put breakfast potatoes, which are either crisp and starchy hash browns or sweet potato hash browns that are just barely sweet. A fine breakfast titled “sharp and sweet” augments the sweet potato hash browns with sharp cheddar cheese, the duo accompanied by thick-sliced bacon, ham, or sausage. Another tasty breakfast, which happens to be vegetarian-friendly, is known as the Three Sisters Skillet. The menu says it is a gloss on a native Pend d’Oreilles tribe dish: grilled polenta, roasted butternut squash, and white beans.

Beyond such specialty meals are eggs Benedict (made with ham rather than Canadian bacon), salmon Benedict, veggie Benedict, and country Benedict, that last one being a split biscuit topped with sausage and smothered with sausage gravy. The gravy is substantial, served also as the companion for Di Luna’s crunch-crusted chicken-fried steak.

Di Luna’s is a friendly sort of place, open Wednesday through Sunday for breakfast and lunch and for weekend dinner concerts featuring jazz, country, or blues. It also serves as a local crafts gallery and frequently hosts Wine Maker Dinners that celebrate northwest vintages.

Dishes to try
Di Luna’s, Three Sisters Skillet
Three Sisters Skillet
Must-Try
Vegan-friendly three Sisters Skillet actually is four sisters: grilled polenta, roasted squash, white beans, and toasted corn. Plus a confetti of fresh vegetables.
Di Luna’s, Sweet Potato Hash Browns
Sweet Potato Hash Browns
Must-Try
Sumptuous sweet potato hash browns are a little bit sweet and a little bit salty.
Di Luna’s, Yakburger
Yakburger
The menu boasts that the yak in the yakburger is raised in North Idaho at the Pack River Yak Ranch. Without extensive yakburger-eating experience, I cannot say if this one is typical of all yaks. In any case, next time I crave a burger at Di Luna's, I am going for one made of beef.
Di Luna’s, Chicken Fried Steak
Chicken Fried Steak
Rib-sticking country gravy is a fine mantle for Di Luna's crisp chicken-fried steak.
