We come to Spokane for business and pleasure and wanted something beside the hotel bkf. Checked TripAdvisor, found this diner, and will keep going back.

My omelet was perfectly prepared and hash browns crispy as ordered. Premium coffee would push rating to Five star. Wife's eggs a little overdone but they get a pass since we did not really specify. Her hash browns however were not so crispy. Friendly attentive service. Great prices.

The Satellite Diner has been a Spokane institution for years. On our last visit, the place was filthy. I had to literally request our server to clean the microwave because looking at it was ruining my appetite. Both my husband and I won't be back again.

I've had breakfast there twice, try the veggie scramble with cheese, super-yum and it will last you all day (no need for lunch.) The servers are so friendly, check in often without being overbearing. A great value.

Great service and delicious food. Not to be missed! We had the Chicken Fajita Scramble and the Veggie Eggs Benedict. Highly recommend both dishes.

You know it's good when you arrive at opening and the are lined up at the door! Breakfast was delicious. I had the eggs Benedict. Best ever. Nothing fancy just good food. My daughter has the French Toast and said it was also delicious. Will definitely be back.

Thank sunnymerry
