Is The Griddle coming to McCall? An update

In late 2016, Boise Weekly reported The Griddle had won a fight with McCall City Council to relax rules on chain restaurants.

Now - more than a year-and-a-half later, The Griddle still isn't serving up breakfast in the mountain town.

"Regarding our potential location in McCall, we have been looking to open a Griddle location in the McCall area for quite some time," The Griddle General Manager Ashley Ferguson said. "When we are looking to open in a new location, there are many factors that we consider.  While we do hope to eventually open in McCall, all of those pieces are not yet in place."

Ferguson said a possible location hasn't yet been solidified, and they do not have an estimate on when a restaurant could open in McCall.

"We love the community of McCall and hope to open a location there when the time is right and the pieces have fallen into place," she said. "As with most of our other expansions, if it is right for us as a company, the time and the location will work itself out."

Cafe 6 three 4 serves up breakfast, lunch and more

A new breakfast and lunch joint is now open in McCall's Roosevelt Arts area on the east side of the lake north of Downtown.

 

Cafe 6 three 4 opened on June 8th. Its name is a nod to the main phone prefix for the McCall area.

It features service for both breakfast and lunch. Items like the Idaho waffle (made of shredded potatoes with sausage) and heuvos con-cheros (a jalapeno cornbread muffin with eggs, bacon and more) highlight breakfast. For lunch, 6 three 4 features five choices, including The 208 (ham or turkey on artisan bread with fixings and a mustard aioli). 

Brown rice bowls, salads and soups round out the menu.

The cafe also serves up coffee drinks, wine, beer and tea. Nitro coffee and a nitro berry hibiscus tea are on tap.

The eatery is open 7am-3pm Tuesday-Sunday.
