SANDPOINT — The Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize Tango Café as May’s Business of the Month.

Judy Colegrove bought Tango Café three-and-a-half years ago from longtime friend and former boss, Barney Ballard. Judy found her passion for the food industry at the young age of 16, working for the Ballard’s at the Beach House, and today her passion thrives as Tango Café provides delicious food for their patrons and many community organizations.

Tango Café opened five years ago and is known for their fresh, all natural, tasty dishes, as well as their friendly staff. If you’ve attended a Chamber Luncheon or any event catered at the Panhandle State Bank Building, you can attest to their delightful fare. They’re open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. and serve breakfast, lunch, dinners to go with daily specials, homemade soups, specialty coffees, teas and smoothies. They are also open to catering of all kinds.

Not only are they a model for every restaurant on their customer service and quality of products level, their community support shines brightly as well. Every year, Tango Café provides meals at cost to numerous organizations including Community Cancer Services with their annual Wine Dinner, Bonner General Hospital’s Heart Ball, Jaycee’s Race, and the Casa Breakfast, just to name a few.

When asked what Tango’s secret to success was, Judy attributed it to her “passion for cooking, fantastic staff, specialized location, hard work and positive attitude.”

Tango Cafe is located in the Panhandle State Bank building, 414 Church St.
