New dining options at Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort

The Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort ensures that its guests will have fresh food prepared at any hour of the day or night, with the opening of its newest amenities, Huckleberry Express Deli and Jackpot Java Creamery, a dessert and coffee bar. The two sites, side by side, had an official grand opening today. Members of the Coeur d'Alene Tribal Council, representatives of the Coeur d'Alene Chamber of Commerce and casino management gathered at the resort's Skycatcher promenade for a ribbon cutting ceremony earlier today.

Huckleberry Express Deli and Jackpot Java Creamery, both in the casino resort's Skycatcher, have been open and operating for the past few weeks, ensuring proper working equipment and allowing time to address any needed changes or improvements. The deli features an expanded menu to include Asian dishes cooked in woks, hand crafted hamburgers from fresh ground beef, seafood and a variety of freshly made deli sandwiches.

But the equally significant feature of these new facilities is having them open and available to guests every day, all day and all night. The response to round-the-clock service has already been considerably positive as sales at the deli have remained strong through the early hours of the morning.

Expansion at Jackpot Java includes pastries from their kitchen and specialty items from Cyrus O'Leary's Pies in Spokane. The menu there also includes a variety of hard ice cream flavors. Espresso and other coffee drinks will be standard fare, as will a variety of tea selections and other hot drinks.

Both Jackpot Java and Huckleberry Express will have comfortable and ample seating areas, each set up to resemble seating arrangements at a sidewalk cafe.
