Specialties Home Cooking, Many of our regulars come in for their Scone fix, We have a full menu with one of the Biggest Breakfast selections, including our very popular homemade Chicken Fried Steak with Country Gravy and Biscuits. Breakfast is served anytime. History Established in 1975 we purchased the cafe in 1975 at that time it was Yatesville truck and car stop. Les and Shar introduced the Scone and named the cafe Merritts,when Les First came to Boise,he enjoyed eating at Manleys Cafe and modeled his menu in a similar fashion, Manleys was well known for their home cooking and large portions. In the early years we enjoyed a great relationship with Les Bois Horse Racing and the great people that came to Boise to run Horse’s. (we are very excited to see the track open) Les and shar operated the cafe until 1998 when they turned things over to their daughter Mary Merritt, Mary intoduced several new items to the menu including her Smoked Pulled Pork and the Indian Taco. In may of 2011 George Merritt took over operations from Mary. George grew up working at Merritts and is looking forward to fixing the place up so we can continue to enjoy serving all of our Great Customers for many years to come.
