Our History

The Trolley House was originally the end of the line for the Boise Transit System’s street car. The company went bankrupt in the 1920’s and a restaurant named the Avenue Inn was established. They were known for generous portions and good food.

In 1976 the restaurant became the Trolley House, a family owned and operated business that has continued the traditions of generous portions, quality food and a commitment to excellent service. The building is on the National Historic Register, and every effort has been made to preserve the history and charm of the building. These traditions have made the Trolley House Boise’s Best Breakfast time and again.
