We have returned many times

Even if my husband wasn't a aviation geek, we would return here again and again. Cinnamon rolls are killer. We have never had bad service in the 9 years of eating here, I am really surprised to read of a problem. The original family still own this restaurant, I would call and talk to a manager... read more

My one tip on most of the items on the menu, choose the half order. My Chicken Fried Steak half order was huge, couldn't finish it. Service was fast and attentive. Will be back. Get there early it is usually packed and busy.

We had breakfast there and it was absolutely fabulous! Large portions and not overly priced. They served REAL hashbrowns and the chicken fried steak was not only delicious, it was big enough to feed 2 people! While enjoying our breakfast, since Skyway Cafe is right next to Felts Field Air strip, we got to watch the planes take off and... More

We ate here the other day and were satisfied overall. We ordered from the menu (choosing something was the hard part.) I myself got the Belgian waffle and a side of sausage and half a side order of hash browns. When the food arrived I was surprised at the size of the waffle, but mostly the amount of hash browns...

My loves and I went to Felts Field for their Neighborhood Appreciate Day and decided to get something to eat. Although they were extremely busy we were seated immediately. Our server was a bit brusk, but in no way rude and she was efficient. I am a huge fan of Eggs Benedict and theirs is definitely in my top ten!... More

My family and I wanted to try something new on Satuday for breakfast. We knew that any diner would be busy and anticipated a wait to be seated, we are a family of 5 so we usually have to wait. After we were seated, it took almost 20 minutes to get out order taken. We then waited another 45 minutes... More

This was my first visit :-) bigger inside than I imagined and LARGE portions of delish dishes for breakfast! We had the California Benedict and a Country Scramble. Atmosphere was fun and the building is full of aviation history!

The food came quickly, the atmosphere was great, and the service was friendly. It was also affordable and easy to find.

Very cozy diner located at Felts Field in Spokane. The service was friendly, food was good and the value was good as well. I has the famous meatloaf and it was very good. Good portion size and a great value. Have not been there for breakfast but am told by colleagues they have awesome biscuits and gravy.

Called Manager to let her know about service our table received. Manager said she would make the waitress work for a day with no pay cause I obviously wanted her reprimanded.... then proceeded to tell me and I quote "Listen lady, don't ever show your face in this restaurant again" and hung up on me. Wow that's great customer service.... More
