Decided to eat/drink at your establishment because i heard good things. I thought the food was pretty good, especially the balsamic walnut salad with my panini. That was the only good thing about this experience. Walked into a loud conversation between the 1 guest and barista. The guy Ryan who works as the barista did not greet us but asked... More

and not wanting fast food, we parked outside Taste Cafe and hurried in to grab some salads. Oh, were we ever pleased! Chicken and Apple, Peas and Pasta, Beets and Edamame. D-licious!!!! Only bummer: No leftovers.

Great healthy food, good atmosphere. I meet friends there often we just enjoy the low keyed feeling it gives and seems to promote a place for good conversation. The salads are awesome just the right amount of subtle flavors. It's not for the big mac type of person just right for those that like interesting healthy food. Someone said they... More

Tried this place as something new instead of my usual Mizuna lunch. I am allergic to dairy and eggs and asked the cashier which salads I could have before I ordered. I picked three of the ones she said were good. First the order took over 25 minutes to come out, and it was just a scoop of three different... More

Want to score with a friend? Take them to TASTE CAFE. Gal beside me said, "I haven't been here in a while. I'm excited because it smells so yummy in here". Jason said, "This is the way I love to eat. It's healthy, fresh and full of flavor". Tonight, Catherine had TASTE deliver our dinner of Shepherd Pie (best ever),... More

In addition to fabulous food and beverages, Taste offers one of the most relaxed and bright, intimate dining settings in downtown Spokane. On the corner of Second and Howard, an easy walk... More

Whether you want a delicious scone and coffee, or a gourmet salad and salad trio, Taste has become a Spokane favorite since opening a few years ago. Not a week goes by where we don't meet for a business breakfast and the staff always remembers what we order! The best Maple Walnut Scones in town: enough said!

This little corner restaurant in downtown Spokane offers a large variety of healthy fresh gourmet salads as well as sandwiches and Panini's. I ordered the tomato basil soup with quinoa, and the wheat berry salad, and curried chicken salad. They were so tasty. I also had one of their large freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. It was excellent. They get... More

My husband and I love stopping in here for a cold beer and some delicious food! We went for our first time in February when we chose to make this the location for our rehearsal dinner. The server was amazing and everyone enjoyed the food!

Service, food, location, ambiance. Salmon with black rice and a sauce to die for. Bread to start is hard not to over eat, so good. Very romantic spot. Small space and feels warm and intimate. Servers are knowledgeable and seem to like their jobs. Nice art and tablescapes.

Thank Kari R
