Bakery by the Lake

Scratch-made goodies and meals • Premium Coffee • Beer/wine  601 E Front Ave #104 • Coeur d'Alene, Idaho 83814 • (208) 415-0681

The group is about to enjoy a day of fun at Tubbs Hill and McEuen Park, but first: coffee for the adults and maybe a couple pastries for the kids to split. Once we get to Bakery by the Lake, however, everyone ends up ordering something. Or maybe a couple of things. And it's all ridiculously good. Oh well: the hike will burn it off, and we might just have to come sip beer and wine at the end of the day.

Tucked away just off downtown’s main drag, locals love this spot that delivers on many levels—from artisan breads and pastries to Caffé Umbria coffee to hearty sandwiches and soups. Bonus: patio sipping awaits with the beer, wine, and nitrogen-charged cold brew coffee.
