When good restaurants go bad

A berrypicker reports that his family had an unpleasant experience at the Breakfast Nook, Saturday.

The spot used to be a family-favorite for weekend breakfasts, but after several bad experiences they moved on.

On Saturday, they decided to give the Breakfast Nook, one more try. “We waited 25 minutes for our food,” said the berrypicker. “When I cut into my son's pancake it was runny and raw in the middle.”

The food was sent back. A hungry kid had to wait. After breakfast, he sent his family to the car and asked to speak to the owner. She apologized for the meal and offered several excuses. “Didn't change the fact that the food sucked,” said berrypicker.

A popular midtown breakfast and lunch spot was the target of an arsonist sometime Sunday, reports the Coeur d'Alene Police Department. City fire and police units responded at 4:45 a.m. to a report of a structure fire at The Breakfast Nook on Fourth Street. Officers arrived on the scene first and made contact with the owner Paul Wiles who was opening up the business for the morning. Wiles noticed a strong odor when he opened the rear door and called 911. No one was inside the building at the time of the call/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
