Understory offers Sandpoint, Idaho a traditional café experience in a unique street-side setting.

With organic and fair trade coffee, a large loose leaf tea selection, endless flavors and spices, and locally sourced ingredients, there’s nothing quite like it.

Our Coffee

We source our organic and fair trade coffee beans locally from Landgrove Coffee in Troy, ID, Careywood Coffee Company in Careywood, ID, and Blackcoffee Roasting Co in Missoula MT.  This allows us to offer our customers a variety of roasts from all over the region.

Our Tea

All of our tea is loose leaf, free of bleached paper bags, glue, and preservatives. We source our tea from Idaho Herbs in Moscow, ID and Montana Tea & Spice Trading in Missoula, MT.  We feature a variety of traditional teas, herbal blends, and medicinal blends.  



Our Ingredients

At Understory, we source locally and make many of our ingredients from scratch. We think this is vital because we want to support our community, we believe what we put into our body is important, and knowing where it comes from is key.
