    605 E. Holland Ave. Spokane - North


  • Bakery by the Lake

    601 E. Front St. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls


    Take a stroll to the Parkside building and enjoy a drink of Caffé Umbria Italian coffee and indulge in a freshly made eclair or chocolate-dipped macaroon or pick up a sandwhich or flatbread pizza (whole or by the slice) for an impromptu picnic by the lake. (July 2013)
  • Barlows at Liberty Lake

    1428 N. Liberty Lake Rd. Liberty Lake


    The mammoth portions at this American family restaurant are a bargain: Light eaters can get two meals from one dish. After moving from Meadowwood Lane to a new building at the beginning of 2014, the restaurant now stays open for dinner, too. (Feb. 2014)

  • Ben's Yogurt & Deli

    9119 E. Broadway Ave. Spokane Valley


    Esteemed for delicious frozen yogurt, Ben's leaves room for pleasing experiences and a sensation for the taste buds. Multiple dessert flavors change periodically so as not to be so vanilla. Also check it out for lunch and dessert. The wraps are huge, they have fresh ingredients and they taste way better than the ones from a certain sandwich chain we all know.
  • Black Diamond

    9614 E. Sprague Ave. Spokane Valley


    The Black Diamond — or the Diamond, as the locals say — is a one-stop adult playground, filled to the brim with pool tables, live DJs, food specials and a clear view of two-dozen or so craft brews on tap. This, truly, is the place to go if you’re partying in the Valley. On a Friday night, the place is packed with folks looking to either play some pool or try out the latest regional brews. (July 2013)

    Relocated to Colville, Wash. as of Feb. 2015.
  • Ferguson's Cafe

    804 W. Garland Ave. Spokane - North


    Ferguson’s is not a café or restaurant — it’s a diner. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in tasty, heaping portions, and there’s nothing on the menu that you’ll struggle to pronounce. Old-fashioned and straightforward, Ferguson’s is a reminder of a simpler time. The milkshakes are made to order out of the original machine — installed in 1941 and, fittingly, the only appliance not destroyed in the devastating 2011 fire.
  • The Flying Goat

    3318 W. Northwest Blvd. Spokane - North


    Already a quintessential Spokane restaurant, the Goat offers some of the best Neapolitan style pizza in town and a drool-worthy collection of beers and wines. Everything here is made from scratch each day — from the dough, to all the sauces and dressings, and even some of the artisan meats are cured in-house. Toppings span from the classic to the gourmet. Don’t be afraid to try the Kiernan, with a medium egg resting on top of a mound of arugula, cheese and Italian sausage. Trust us. It’s delicious. Snag one of the many beers on tap or in bottles (or cans) to go along with your pie. (July 2013)

  • Garland Sandwich Shoppe

    3903 N. Madison St. Spokane - North


    Located just off Garland Avenue, this little sandwich place should not be underestimated. Its menu is replete with sandwiches, ranging from gourmet paninis to well-executed classics like the BLT. Really hungry? Order the Dagwood. It weighs more than a pound. A rotation of soups and a salad menu round out the menu. (July 2013)
  • Garnet Cafe

    315 Walnut Ave. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls


    The Garnet Cafe dishes up locally sourced, hearty fare. Breakfasts, like their Northwest Omelet or Corned Beef Hash, will leave you full all day. And the lunch specials, like the Garnet Cuban Sandwich, made with McLane Farms Berkshire pulled pork and smoked ham, pickles, Swiss, slaw and stoneground mustard on fresh ciabatta bread, are truly special. Garnet is a favorite, but certainly not a secret. Make reservations early if you want to eat there this century, or try fighting your way to one of their eclectic dining tables. (July 2013)
  • Hacienda Las Flores

    1801 W. Sunset Blvd. Spokane - Downtown


    Hacienda Las Flores has everything you’d expect from a family Mexican restaurant. The interior is bright and busy. The custom of passing out chips is taken seriously. The enchiladas, burritos and taco plates are gargantuan. If you still want more, Tuesdays and Thursdays are all-you can-eat tacos for $7. They also have a $5 take-out special and a daily happy hour from 2-5 pm, when you can get two beers for $5 or two margaritas for just $6. (March 2013)
  • Hong Kong Buffet

    14700 E. Indiana Ave. Spokane Valley


    A step up from what you might expect in a mall restaurant, this offering from Vicky Zheng (the owner of Hong Kong Express) is cheerful and almost elegant, decorated in teal and red, with ornate, calligraphy-covered wall hangings. You'll find everything you'd want from an Asian-inspired buffet: chow mein, teriyaki chicken, fried rice and even a dozen kinds of sushi. The quality is good — no limp veggies or oily noodles. Dishes are replenished often and served hot. If you are looking for a gut-busting lunch at a bargain price, you'll find it here.
  • Main Market Co-Op

    44 W. Main Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    A healthy fix to a grumbling belly awaits you at the Main Market Deli. With pasta salads, side dishes, meats, soups and sandwiches made from all natural ingredients, this deli food is tasty and fresh. Gluten- free and vegan diets will find a delicious array of lunch options here. Take a seat and enjoy the sunshine, or get it to go. (July 2013)

  • Neato Burrito

    827 W. First Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    Get in line at this downtown spot and grab one of the best burritos in the whole damn city. Pick your tortilla (flour, spinach, or what have you), bean (black, pinto), meat (or tofu), sour cream, salsa — you get the point. Prices are low and portions monstrous. While you're munching on your burrito goodness, take in the sounds of whoever happens to be playing at the Baby Bar that night. (Feb. 2013)

  • nYne

    232 W. Sprague Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    The chic open space of one of Spokane's greatest nightspots is bringing in a diverse clientele of drinkers, dancers and music lovers. The juxtaposition of the sleek glass neon-green bar, exposed brick walls and half-court basketball hoop makes the venue all-at-once classy and laid-back. Enjoy a signature Dry Fly martini, a late-night menu of Angus beef sliders and spicy pork wings, or simply kick back with a beer. (July 2013)

  • Queen of Sheba

    621 W. Mallon Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    Queen of Sheba knows a thing or two about preparing vegetarian food that you’re not going to find anywhere else. We recommend the yeme shir kikwat, which is split red lentils cooked in berbere sauce or the shiro, crowned chick peas mildly spiced and cooked with chopped onions and tomatoes. There’s also the yatakilt alicha, with cabbage, carrots and potatoes sautéed with peppers, onion and garlic.

  • Rincon Tapatio

    3207 N. Market St. Spokane - North


    Tapatio is at the top of the family-owned-Mexican-restaurant ladder, especially if you’re one of those people who differentiate between a taquito and flauta. We appreciate the menu’s variety (extended categories include “eggs,” “vegetarian” and “American”), the presentation of entrées (on hubcap-sized platters), and the overhead sombrero lamps. (July 2013)
  • Log Cabin BBQ & Catering Co.

    3415 E. Trent Ave. Spokane - East


    For the last several years, owner Janet Bonser has been trucking her mobile log cabin trailer to cater weddings and backyard barbecues. She’s still in the catering biz — she’ll do on- or off-site service. But when a drive-through coffee shop closed on East Trent last year, she parked her trailer behind it, reopened its windows and set up shop. Open weekdays for lunch and dinner, Smokie’s took home top honors at the 2010 Inland Northwest Barbecue competition, a distinction you’ll be reminded of upon biting into their beef brisket. (March 2012)

  • Sushi Maru

    808 W. Main Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    Sushi Maru is perfect for the sushi eater who doesn’t know what to order. A conveyor belt carries little multicolored plates of sushi right past your table, which is ideal if you like to see your food before you order it. Each plate is a different color, which corresponds with a set price.
  • Sushi Sakai

    829 E. Boone Ave., Suite B Spokane - East


    Sushi Sakai offers a delightful atmosphere and delicious sushi, ranging from the user-friendly California roll to the more adventurous Rattlesnake roll. They’ve also got a fine selection of sake — handle with care.

  • Taaj Indian Cuisine

    128 W. Third Ave. Spokane - Downtown


  • True Legends Grill

    1803 N. Harvard Rd. Liberty Lake


    Sure, the entrance is like a maze. But with new ownership and a fresh menu, this iteration of Liberty Lake’s same-place, new-face sports bar looks determined to succeed. Stay rich by ordering several plates from the happy hour menu (3-6 pm) — stay classy by calling it tapas. (AM) TRY Creamy garlic chicken flatbread pizza ($5 during happy hour)
