America’s Byways® are a collection of 150 National Scenic Byways and All-American Roads designated by the U.S. Secretary of Transportation. The Department of Transportation praises the byway around Lake Pend Oreille for its “abundance of recreational opportunities, postcard-quality scenery, and historical elements.” We like it for huckleberry pie, hearty diner breakfast, and four-star coffee.

1

Dish

Waterside grill and fine-dining restaurant, Dish is an Idaho Panhandle foodie destination. Bests: smashed potatoes, bacon, and anything with huckleberries.

2

Pie Hut

In Idaho's panhandle, the Pie Hut is a charming little restaurant that offers blue-ribbon cream & fruit pies, savory chicken pot pie, and beguiling sandwiches.

3

Evans Brothers Roasters

In this conscientious Idaho coffee house, expect a masterfully poured cup of coffee made from beans of the world, which Evans Bros. roasts on premises.

A gleaming silver food truck parked at Sandpoint's Oak Street Court, the Old Tin Can is a jolly source of handsome burgers and hand-cut French fries.

Huge portions of such hearty fare as biscuits and gravy and locally made sausage distinguish the fine breakfasts for which Hoot Owl Cafe is known.
