“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

This restaurant has changed hands and names a few times, but I think they have finally found a winner. Located in the same building as the Magic Lantern Theater, Spokane's art theater, it is a natural fit for an afternoon dinner show or beverage. The menu is progressive without being snobbish.
We opted for the outdoor seating that provided an immersion in this up and coming part of town. Read: interesting and colorful people of all kinds will meander by your table.
We ordered the Chicken Caprese Sandwich which didn't disappoint. Crispy chicken filet, proscuitto, cheese, tomato and a pesto mayo well constructed in a nice kaiser roll. They used a really great tasting dressing on the Caesar salad and the Curried Lentil soup was just plain d'lish. It was really hard deciding on something to order because the whole darn menu looked so good. This will definitely become one of our go to places.

“Great food, great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

First of all, you can take your kids in here. It was rather loud, but that never gets us down. Lots of great food choices, great service. We had the Thai flatbread and the hummus plate. Wonderful! Someone else in our party had the salmon with jalapeño. It was amazing. Not too hot, but had a sweet kick. Good atmosphere. Would recommend. We walked over from the Red Lion at the Park and that was defiantly doable. Cheers!

“Great little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

Nice and new, prompt service. Good Happy hour, flatbreads, and atmosphere. Stopped in for happy hour and place was full. Service prompt, efficient. Appetizers were all good. Flat screens throughout bar area. Outdoor seating available. Only downside is street only parking.
