Breakfast today when Franks was too packed. Hadn't been to Satellite since I used to be out too late :). Place is updated a bit and still has great no-nonsense food. My only dislike was the pancakes that were unbalanced and very sweet. Menu did say that they used sweet cream, so there was fair warning, but the balance was... More

We were in Spokane in May, during a busy weekend for the city and found ourselves on the street early Sunday morning looking for a place to have breakfast as the hotel restaurant was booked and had a two hour wait. We wandered around downtown looking for somewhere to eat without getting our car out until we came across another... More

Shoutout to Rashel and Jamie, two of the best servers ever! The best breakfasts and comfort food in all of Spokane. The service can't be beat.

The menu is good. The prices are good. The spicy bloody mary's were some of the best I've had. The waitress' were a lot of fun and did an excellent job.

This little place looks outwardly kind of run-down, and being attached to a "lounge", not a kind of place I'd normally eat (not being snobby - just tellin' the truth). We went for Sunday breakfast, and were so pleasantly surprised! The food was fabulous, the service was good and the coffee was strong and plentiful. The restaurant interior is actually... More

Our two kids were reluctant to walk in based on how the outside of the restaurant looked. I said we might regret it if we do not. We were so glad we did! My husband had the chicken fried steak and it was amazing. The kids split a corned beef hash breakfast burrito that they kept saying was so yummy.... More

My husband and 2 of our friends were in town for a concert and were looking for a place for a greasy hangover breakfast on our way out of town. After some searching online we found the Satellite Diner. The restaurant part was full when we arrived but luckily when we got there the lounge was just opening so we... More

Didn't think it was going to be much from the outside. But the food was so good and was a great price. The staff was friendly and helpful and made recommendations without being pushy. I would recommend breakfast here anytime.

My husband and I are originally from Spokane, but have recently moved to Houston. We were in town to take our family to Cancun for Thanksgiving when I suggested we have breakfast here. I was surprised that in the 10 years my husband lived in Spokane, he hadn't eaten at this place (I've been here lots). I had the regular... More
