Kootenai Cafe Making 24/7 Return

One of the best things about the old place was the fact that they were open 24 hours a day and provided a fantastic spot for late-night post-bar folks to go and soak up their twelve shots of Rumple Minze with a tall stack of pancakes or a bacon burger. Since reopening as Kootenai Cafe last fall, the place has had very limited hours, breakfast and lunch only. Thankfully, they've seen the same success and Mike said that they are almost ready to once again stay open 24 hours a day and will also be introducing a dinner menu full of 'comfort foods" such as pot roast, meat loaf, and country fried chicken. Personally, I cannot wait to have one of their killer Monte Cristo sandwiches (the best in North Idaho) after a wild night out on the town/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho. More here (scroll down).

Question: When did you last eat in a restaurant in the wee hours of the morning?
