Description: 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 on Sunday and Lunch,Dinner Monday thru Saturday 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.

“Our "Go To" Restaurant!”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

This is our favorite little neighborhood restaurant! The owners Dan and Debbie are fantastic, the wait staff is very friendly, and the food is always good. Quite frequently on weekends they have live musicians, which adds to the laid back atmosphere. In all the times we've been - we've never had a bad experience. I do understand the other reviewer's comment about being close to the kitchen. We've been seated in that area also a time or two, and it's not always the best spot - but the place, the people and the food are so good that we'll deal with the minor inconvenience if that's the only area available. Sometimes we just go in to sit on their comfy couch, order an appetizer and a bottle of wine, and play Scrabble and listen to the music!

“A Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Recently, my wife and I had dinner at the Laguna Cafe. We were totally thrilled with everything from the delicious food to the impeccable service. The atmosphere is laid back allowing for a very relaxed and enjoyable dining experience. The two guitar players who performed added to the overall ambience. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

“Not a great experience”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

The grease smell in the restaurant is so overpowering that I wanted to leave and eating was not overly pleasant. We were seated in the rear near the kitchen and it is obvious that the hood system is not sufficient to pull out the cooking odors or the grease build up is causing a problem. I feel sorry for the people that work in that smell all day. The food was okay but not anything special. The service was excellent and that helped.

Probably will not go back. Had a groupon as wanted to try it out since they advertise so much.
