We had a great diner breakfast. We sat at the counter right in front of grill and cook station. I couldn't believe what this line cook cranked out in this small space. He was a rock star. I had a great omelette. They have fun selections like veggie Benedict too.

The place was busy at 11AM and we wanted a late breakfast before leaving town. We sat at the bar being there were no seats available right away in dining. That may have been a mistake. It took about 15 mins before anyone asked us anything. Once we finally got our order in, it took about an hour for our... More

We came here with relatives for a beer in the evening. I didn't even know it was a diner, thought it was a bar. The atmosphere was a bar's--very loud and cramped. Just stayed a short while to visit and have a beer. Finding a parking place was a nightmare. They even charge for parking in the evening in Spokane!... More

Such a great little diner-- we were in the city for a day and went back for lunch after an excellent breakfast. The food was quick and really good, the waitstaff were friendly and fast. The 'hens on red river' eggs over hash and chili was really good as was the veggie burger with pesto. I'd come back anytime in... More

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. After two visits, we have found great food, (tho coffee is average), friendly service, and a clean restaurant. Comfortable atmosphere too. Though be prepared to wait, even if it’s between meal times we never have... More

Finding a place to eat for breakfast that was walking distance, we stumbled on the Satelite. Having passed it multiple times by car we never considered it for a meal.But when we had to stay at the Grand hotel because we had no power during the WIndstorm and didn;t have our cars, we walked there for breakfast. The coffee is... More
