Happy Spring! Here are a few places you may still need to try, forgot about, or already love…
Olive It Cafe: This is one of those places you just need to try. Don’t wait until you are in the area, make it a destination. It is laid back, with an energetic, cheerful vibe and fun staff. Supports local artists, crafts, and musicians looking for venues to display or play. I love the flat bread grilled sandwiches and they are vegetarian friendly too. Located near Spokane Community College on Crestline just north of Empire, parking in back.
Rockwood Bakery: An oldie but a goodie and great destination for spring. This location is not to be confused with a Rocket Bakery. Take a walk in Manito Park and head across the street to warm up with a hot chocolate. Located on the South Hill near Manito Park.
The Scoop: Awesome ice cream! Walk around back and buy ingredients for dinner from Fresh Abundance. Located just off Monroe across from Roosevelt Elementary and near Cannon Hill Park (One of my favorite Spokane parks).
A Taste of Thai: Good food and great prices. This restaurant is very family friendly, even for the toddlers. Located on the North Side in the Hastings Road strip-mall near Mead High School.
& one for the road….
Fish Brewing Company Restaurant: Next time you are in Olympia, WA, stop by the Fish Tale Brewery and try the sampler rack of beer. The food is great with choices for all diets; vegan, vegetarian, meat of all types, and probably some gluten free stuff there too. If you want to try the beer locally go to Rocket Market, located off High Drive on the South Hill.
