I live locally, and take my kids the first day of summer vacation each year. We enjoy the food, the décor, and watching the airplanes take off and land from our table.

I cannot advise you eat here. Because if you do, there will be less for me. In all seriousness, though, this place has possibly the best breakfast in Spokane. Everything is homemade, portions are absurdly large, and the service is second to none. Food comes fast, the servers are friendly and on the ball. This place must be visited to... More

This busy diner at Felts Field has a view of the runway, so you can watch the planes take off and land as you eat. The walls are filled with airplane memorabilia. We were a group of 12 for lunch and ordered different lunch items. I had the Turkey Bacon Avocado melt which was good. One friend ordered the Tuna... More

Went there for breakfast. The service was great, food was pretty big potions and a good reasonable price. Clean place to eat and loaded with avionics. A must for plane lovers.

If you live in the Spokane are and have not tried this place you are missing out. The decor is historic airplane style with 60's decor. Love it. Portions are more than enough. You can order breakfast anytime. I had a veggie scramble, -delightful! This place is off the beaten path but always packed that tells you how good it... More

Anyone who ever had a love of flying or has a child entranced with the machines of the sky will be in love with the Skyway. It's an off the beaten path location unless you frequent Felts Field, and may take a bit of help from Google Maps to find it, but the effort is SOOO worth it! Smiling employees... More

This is a popular place with locals who enjoy an old-fashioned diner while watching small planes land and take off. You'll love it too if you like model planes, generous portions, and a personable waitstaff. Off the beaten path, but well worth a visit.

Food is very good and big portions. Staff is friendly and good service. Fair prices and the best thing I noticed was how clean it was,... More
