Rustic is owned and operated by a local Coeur d'Alene family.   We are passionate about great food. Rustic was designed to create a fun friendly downtown CDA restaurant serving fresh, delicious, affordable food and drink. Doughs are made daily in house, hand formed and baked to perfection. Meats and produce locally sourced. Come in, grab a seat, listen to music, laugh with friends, and watch the latest sporting event.  


Rustic’s building was constructed in 1905.  We have come to learn it was originally built as a cinema.  It has been gently renovated to respect its century-old history. Layers of time and dust were removed to reveal its natural roots. Reclaimed wood and metals are used to recreate the warmth and integrity of its time.  Look up and you will see the original rough sawn joist and plank ceiling restored to its original strength. A blend of old and new, Rustic is ready for its next hundred years.
