Went here again yesterday, as we knew we would be able to get a great meal at a reasonable price. We go here once a month since it's close to our dog groomer. The food is consistently good, and the service is always great. I had a craving for bisquits and gravy and this place has the best around. I... More

Lived in Spokane all my life, never been here and it was time to change that. Five star food, an atmosphere of planes, flight and Art Deco. This place is a must!!!!

Unique and out of the way café. LOVED IT! Small and quaint with airplane memorabilia, great food and service. A nice view of airport and small craft landing and take off. The four of us enjoyed lunch here, and appears many locals that work in the area also eat here frequently. We had the special half a sandwich with bowl... More

I ordered the Monte Cristo, which was good except for the turkey, it tastes funny, so I took it off my sandwich, I didn't tell them until later, they said they would've given me a new sandwich!!

I live locally, and take my kids the first day of summer vacation each year. We enjoy the food, the décor, and watching the airplanes take off and land from our table.

I cannot advise you eat here. Because if you do, there will be less for me. In all seriousness, though, this place has possibly the best breakfast in Spokane. Everything is homemade, portions are absurdly large, and the service is second to none. Food comes fast, the servers are friendly and on the ball. This place must be visited to... More

This busy diner at Felts Field has a view of the runway, so you can watch the planes take off and land as you eat. The walls are filled with airplane memorabilia. We were a group of 12 for lunch and ordered different lunch items. I had the Turkey Bacon Avocado melt which was good. One friend ordered the Tuna... More

Went there for breakfast. The service was great, food was pretty big potions and a good reasonable price. Clean place to eat and loaded with avionics. A must for plane lovers.
