My Groupon warned me of a pending expiration. Yikes. I visited this popular Spokane favorite at 7 AM on Sunday and was seated promptly with friendly service and delight with my Groupon! This is just like my prior experience. Happy laughing cajoling and gentle teasing of the regulars. This is like going home again to a friendly family for breakfast. The aroma of delicious fills the little parking lot.
The food. Oh the food. Generous portions. Very very inexpensive. Like a big breakfast for an early bird special is less than $4.00! Early bird between 6-8 AM EVERY DAY!! So I had to work and spend my $20. I ordered an early bird with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, whole wheat toast, giant FRESH SQUEEZED oj, and a large turkey sandwich, an Angus beef burger, and two sides of tomato basil soup. Steaming hot fresh brewed coffee. All this was still under $20!!
There are many vegetarian options and everything is just so darn yummy! The service is excellent and there is no rush! Even though I was given a huge booth and leisurely read my Sunday paper. And don't forget I am a Groupon customer but was never treated other than like royalty. Coffee refills were abundant and by the time I left around 8 AM there was a waiting group but again no rush for the customers.
If you want a dazzling place with tablecloths and carnations I can recommend luxury fine breakfasts. But if you are after a local hangout that is fast, delicious, friendly and just leaves me feeling happy all day long then this is for you!
And by the way...the food is perfect and I am so fussy. Coffee is hot and just the right strength. No dishwater coffee here! The scrambled eggs were fluffy and the sausage link and bacon cooked with crisp and delicious perfection. The turkey sandwich is really fresh REAL turkey - not the kind from a little container. The burger is a big one and ready for a warm up later with mushrooms and swiss cheese already waiting. The tomato basil soup is homemade goodness.
I just leave here wanting to return the next day. It is sooooo good. And the staff are friendly without being intrusive. Everyone there is all atwitter with excitement about new menus and happy about their new sign. It is like all the staff have an owndership in this good place. I like everything fine the way it is, but if they want change then so be it!
Try this place and you will have a smile all day! And a happy tummy too!
