When an uneven distribution of mosh pits causes the earth's axis to flip Antarctica-over-Alaska, breakfast will become the frumpy finale of the day instead of its roaring opener. Enjoy breakfast's treasured timeslot while you still can with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of breakfast and lunch fare at Michael D's Eatery in Coeur d'Alene.
Michael D's has fried and grilled its way into the hearts of northern Idaho, resulting in blissful taste buds and sacrificed top-buttons in trousers across the region. The all-day breakfast menu proudly bears dishes such as the bagel florentine with poached eggs, creamed spinach, and parmesan cheese ($9.29), and fluffy, velvety buttermilk pancakes ($3.99 each). The lunch menu dons down-home sandwiches and burgers, including the portly barbecue ham burger—a half-pound beefsteak piggybacked with shaved ham, caramelized onions, and homemade bourbon barbecue sauce ($10.65). Michael D's country-inspired memorabilia, wooden paneling, and nature-green booths fashion a folksy feel, similar to Grandma's home or Grandma's dream, which starts in her home and ends in a bingo hall with Andy Griffith.

Michael D's Eatery
When most little boys were hoping to unwrap G.I. Joes or dirt bikes on Christmas morning, Michael DePasquale had his fingers crossed for a Suzy Homemaker oven. From this iconoclastic start, Michael advanced from his toy oven to a job as a dishwasher, then prep cook, then lead cook—and then honed his developing skills at the Culinary Institute of America in New York. In his spare time, he adopted a loyal pet rhode island red chicken and taught it to chase frisbees. After graduating, he honed his craft as head and executive chef at several different restaurants before launching his own eatery.
Fifteen years later, Michael is still cracking eggs and sizzling sausage for the breakfast dishes his eatery serves all day long. Omelets—which convert to scramblers upon request—can be packed with fresh jalapeños, bacon, and sour cream. For sweeter creations, he slathers honey butter onto pancakes, as well as custard-style sourdough french toast. At midday, hand-pressed burgers enter the lists and don cloaks of spicy habanero or barbecue sauce. Diners can lounge on an outdoor patio on summery afternoons, and on colder evenings, they can savor chicken marsala and roasted tri-tip steak amid the dining room’s wood-paneled walls.
