Yesterday, I said to Robin that sometime I would like to The Orchard House at Sunny Slope in the Snake River AVA wine district. She suggested breakfast and then proceeded to look at the menu on line. (Use the link provided above.) And while you are on the page, sign up for their newsletter for specials and coming events. Oh my! What a treat. We will definitely return for a Saturday night dinner. I promise! Out of 5 stars, right now it is a 4-Star restaurant. The food that we had, see below, was awesome. Check out their menu at the link above. The Hot Criterion Apple Juice is super! They use local products as much as possible in season. They carry only Idaho wines!
We did like the “rustic”, and very Western, knotty pine walls and grand open space in the dinning area. The hammered tin ceiling is wonderful. I can really see the dining area filling up quickly and a full house. You might want to call ahead if you are planning a Friday night or Saturday visit. And definitely call ahead if you have a large party. The number to call is (208) 459-8200. You can also contact them via E-Mail. I will keep their business card in the sidebar.
We certainly did enjoy ourselves, the food and the hospitality. In the meantime, enjoy these photos.
Restaurant waiting area.
Main dining area. Here Robin and Owner Kris Thompson are in deep conversation. I always like it when the owner of a restaurant carries on a conversation with their clients. It makes one feel welcome.
Our breakfast and it is a HUGE one!
