The Rusty Moose

The other day, Bop and I ran away for the afternoon.  We headed down across the border to Bonners Ferry.  No agenda except fun.

We decided to stop and have lunch at the Rusty Moose.  It is a little cafe in the historic downtown.  By the way there are some pretty sweet little shops down there as well!  Great for a day trip from town.rusty-moose

The Rusty Moose has a regular menu and special of the day; and the desserts, oh my heaven!  We started with coffee, served in red mugs.  I’m pretty sure the red mugs made the coffee taste better. coffee-tastes-better-in-red-cups

I had a BLT with fries and Bop had a steak sandwich with the soup of the day.  So delicious.  I hope you get an opportunity to visit there.  red-inside

  13. I love the older smaller cafes! They have those down to earth feelings that make you feel like your at home. The down home atmosphere!! Their cooking matches that same atmosphere!
    I also love shopping at their stores! You could find some good bargains and maybe even some antiques!

    I love little hometown cafes. They are so cozy and I like how some of them have homemade crafts. You get that hometown country feel when you walk in and they always smell so good! Thank you for sharing.
