So many friends have urged me to share my experience at Laguna Cafe that I feel that--even though it was several months ago--I must write a follow up to my previous post. My husband and I went there during Spokane's Restaurant Week. We made it...More

Let's start off with your statement, you did not want to be part of the Restaurant week Special Event and you wanted to order off the regular menu. We were happy to do this as we have never made restaurant week mandatory. Your selection of...More

While the staff was very friendly and attentive I doubt that my husband and I will return any time soon. The food is very OK. We ordered the Sicilian Carbonara (a "signature dish") and fried shrimp. Neither were offensive, just mis-priced for what they were....More

So, the burger is ok at best, and definitely not worth any where near $13 + tax + tip. Frozen, not fresh, patties. Cooked way above Medium-Well. Looked gray and lifeless and was very dry! None of this can be attributed to being busy, only...More

Nice atmosphere; friendly;varied menu-----all the requisites, but failed in quality control. We experienced three issues that contributed to a rating reduction. Owner/chef tried to appease with gratis dessert. That helped, but the damage was done.More

I would imagine you can order the small plates any time. I have not ordered this,but I have found them to be very accommodating. I have difficult dietary needs and they have always accommodated me with a smile.

Laguna Cafe was established in 2007 on Spokane's South Hill. We relocated to our present address in Dec. 2015. We feature Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner on Sunday and Lunch,Dinner Monday thru Saturday in a warm and casual setting. Owners Dan and Chef Debbie collected menu ideas from our families and our travels. Our families have always been in the food business, my Grandfather sold produce door to door after escaping poverty and starvation in Sicily in 1890. Debbie's Mother cooked professionally all her life. We draw on their teaching to inspire our menu of American and Italian dishes as well as things that strike our fancy. We have a full bar, over 90 wines and a dozen beers available inside or on our patio. You may chose to call ahead and drive up to our pick up window to take your meal home with you. Save room we have spectacular desserts.
