This cozy, intimate restaurant perfectly located in downtown has a new owner. The food is excellent. I had a steak cooked perfectly. My companion had salmon. The portions are just right. The prices are very reasonable. Michael, the owner, is attentive yet not overpowering. I had him select my wine which was an outstanding companion to my entree. If you... More

One thing I can tell you is that the food is good but not a lot of it. If you have a hearty appetite, what is on the menu for restaurant week is not going to fill you. Off the restaurant week menu the huckleberry sirloin steak is where it is at. The house salad is unique with a great... More

I have eaten here twice in the last 3 weeks. It is an excellent place to go if you want to carry on a conversation with your dining partner(s). The first visit I had the Beef Wellington, second the salmon with crab. My wife had a hamburger and on the second visit the crab/salmon. On the second visit our friends... More

Seven of us had lunch at Herbal Essence Café. Wow, great food, service and ambience at a very reasonable price. Every item on the lunch menu was delicious. We had combinations of soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches and desserts. So glad we found this lovely café. Ryan, the chef and owner came to our table to make sure everything was to... More

Had a get-together with a girlfriend and this was convenient to our other errands; had a nice lunch. Good waitstaff, pleasant atmosphere, food was good without being too-pretentious. We were surprised at two things: kind of lame coffee offerings, and that dessert was not suggested. Maybe they did not serve dessert, or maybe they were trying to get us to... More

I recently stayed in downtown Spokane with friends and we went to eat our first night at Herbal Essence Cafe based on a recommendation. We were not steered wrong. The restaurant is charming and was only a couple blocks from our hotel. I had a wonderful steak special that was served with a beautiful mushroom sauce. The steak was well... More

My wife and I have been driving cross country and stopped in Spokane for a couple of days. Walking around we noticed this small shop which we thought was a bath products store based on its name. Looking through the window we saw it is a small cafe and decided to have dinner there tonight. We ordered cranberry stuffed baked... More

Wonderful food and atmosphere, but the prices are not exorbitant! Not open most Sunday's and reservations are recommended.
