Cooling Off at The Beanery

We went to lunch at the Brick Oven Beanery downtown Boise. We call it the Beanery, even though they've officially changed their name to "Bistro" - which sounds more hip, I guess. We love the turkey, bacon, lettuce sandwich. They serve it on fresh-baked bread with homemade mayonnaise. The gumbo is good, too, and all sorts of shakes and malts. This is the outdoor seating with a small water-art feature that kids are always soaking their toes, and more, in.


  1. The food sounds good to me. Although "Beanery" is neat too. I like the idea of eating out of doors and the water feature sure helps if it is super hot and sticky.

    I now have 7 blogs. Each one is different. The newest ones are Sendai, Japan, Dances on Sunshine and Thunder Maker.

  2. Hi from South Shields, nice picture you have here today, got me thinking about lunch already.

    I need your support, see my latest post at South Shields Daily Photo

    Photographers rights in the UK and worldwide are under increasing threat and we need to make a stand now!

    Unless something changes dramatically, this will be the last ever post at South Shields Daily Photo.

  3. The sandwich sounds great. Nice setting.

  4. Call me old fashioned but all other things being equal, I'd choose a Beanery over a Bistro if for no other reason than it's unpretentious. Then again, I go broke in a week in the restaurant business.

  5. Thanks for the positive feedback on today's post Diva. W.
