Went there on a week night and were seated right away as they weren't very busy. It was only around 5 pm. Within an hour the place was packed. The small plate dinners we ordered were tasty but the Mai Tai two of us ordered were very lack luster (it was advertised as their specialty drink). The live music was... More

Laguna Café is more that a café. It is lovely place and has a lovely atmosphere. The owner made us feel so welcome, plus gave us some excellent suggestions for our meal and the wine. Very knowledgeable about the wines and paring. We took a guest from out of town and we all want to go back very soon

We purchased a Groupon for the Laguna Cafe and went there tonight. Right away the decor was confusing. Semi classy wine bar with nice wine selection, or a casual "laguna" beach feel with patio furniture and beach umbrellas (or still christmas with the Christmas lights and balls?) Anyways, the decor hardly matters. We both started with the lobster bisque Which.... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your meal with us last night. I did stop at your table to ask how your meal was and address the fact that you did not seem to be eating much. I would have been happy to replace your meals with something more to your liking. I do not understand why you chose... More

This nicely decorated establishment was gem on the south hill. Fantastic service and excellent food. My dad was very impressed as well. A well worth trip to top of the the hill!

Great food, must try the Carbonara, and the Santa Barbara Salad is amazing. Genuine friendly service, great Coupe De Ville Margarita! a warm eclectic comfortable environment. Covered outdoor patio seating. A really nice neighborhood restaurant that we will visit often.

My wife and I decided to try Laguna at its new location. The new location offers a warm and inviting atmosphere, nicely decorated. We went on a week day night at about 7 pm which is generally just beyond the rush hour in Spokane. The place was 2/3 full but the host insisted that we sit at a table for... More

An awesome surprise. The food was delicious and artfully presented. Steaks and comfort food too. My husband had a perfectly cooked steak and I had Thanksgiving dinner. I could have licked the plate clean. Dessert scrumptious. Not that expensive. Indoor outdoor seating and great decor. Will definitely visit again often.

We had unexpected house guests that arrive for a glass of wine and talking. Since we had not seen each other for several years, we talked past dinner so we went out. Laguna moved to their now location the first of the year and expanded into larger quarters. The restaurant was busy and the owner his usual self - very... More

We decided to visit this restaurant one more time. The last time we visited it was for dinner. We had the artichoke dip for the appetizer and then our main dish. All we can say is that it was mediocre and nothing notably great. However, we decided to try it again but this time it was for lunch. I ordered... More

Lindsay, we are very sorry you did not enjoy your meals at Laguna Cafe, I don't know what your dinners were, but I would have been happy to replace them with something you might enjoy more. Regarding our produce, we use nothing but fresh lettuce with no preservatives, all natural, and we get our produce at least 4 times per... More

Spokane WA is one of my favorite cities in the USA. The Laguna Café is a warm, inviting restaurant for the entire family. Excellent service and food and the owner stopped by and said hello. I highly recommend the key lime pie and the next time I am in Spokane, WA, I will take my family to Laguna Café. Wish... More

Laguna Cafe was established in 2007 on Spokane's South Hill. We relocated to our present address in Dec. 2015. We feature Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily in a warm and casual setting. Owners Dan and Chef Debbie collected menu ideas from our families and our travels. Our families have always been in the food business, my Grandfather sold produce door to door after escaping poverty and starvation in Sicily in 1890. Debbie's Mother cooked professionally all her life. We draw on their teaching to inspire our menu of American and Italian dishes as well as things that strike our fancy. We have a full bar, over 90 wines and a dozen beers available inside or on our patio. You may chose to call ahead and drive up to our pick up window to take your meal home with you. Save room we have spectacular desserts.
