I love this place- It's super fun to eat there and the food is very tasty. The crowd on Sunday is quite large and is to be expected, but they do have a covered outdoor area if the tiny entry is full. I like the little frenchy- or the tiny track myself. They have the BEST hot chocolate I have... More

Great thing to do if you're touring from outside the US. Full range of traditional american breakfasts served in a lovely old train carriage. Great coffee, egg dishes, and typically friendly american service. They've been doing this for some 80 years and have really got it down pat.

outstanding fish and chips. Burgers are great and a huge chef salad with all the fixings! Would stop in ever Wednesday night on the way to a seminar (we're from Walla Walla) and they got us in and out timely and the service was always top notch, cheerful, friendly and team oriented meaning they worked together to get us our...

Sheldon from Big Bang Theory would love this place...trains trains trains! Authentic rail dinning car! Even the windows are staged. The breakfast was excellent and come hungry because portions are ample. Eggs were just as ordered, grilled NOT deep fried browns and the stack was good. I do however think the flatware was from the early 1900's and could barely... More

Frank's is our favorite diner for a hearty breakfast. It has a warm welcoming atmosphere, friendly and efficient servers and good coffee. Lunch and dinner are on the menu but the best hash browns on town beckon us to prefer breakfast. Moderate prices bring us back.

My niece who is a student in Spokane raved about this restaurant and said it was a must-visit. We got our names on the wait list and were told it would be about a 10-15 minute wait...which turned out to be closer to 35...but we were hungry and didn't want to go anywhere else. So the train car itself is... More

It's wins all the awards for best breakfast in Spokane, and I can see why. Unique atmosphere, great food (Huckleberry pancakes a must), ultra friendly and attentive service. A true bit of local lure.
