While these restaurants may not be as expensive as some higher-end restaurants, they are just as noteworthy with exceptional food and a relaxing ambiance.

Ambrosia Bistro & Wine

9211 E. Montgomery Ave., Spokane Valley, WA 99206

One of the top restaurants in the Spokane Valley, I enjoy the decor and ambiance of this restaurant. I have eaten here many times and continue to come back about once a month as it is one of my favorites.

Hay J’s Bistro

21706 E. Mission Ave., Liberty Lake, WA 99019

You wouldn’t guess, based on location, that this is one of the best restaurants in the area. It is a bit hidden and parking can be difficult, but once you walk in, you are transformed to another place. Their food, service, and atmosphere are top notch. This place is not to missed.

Cottage Cafe

6902 E. Appleway Blvd., Spokane Valley, WA 99212

This gem located in Spokane Valley is known for its breakfasts. While they do have some lunch items, breakfast is their main meal. This restaurant is so popular that unless you get there right when they open, expect a wait.

Twigs Bistro & Martini Bar

Twigs has 4 locations in Spokane – downtown, South Hill, Wandermere Spokane Valley. Amazing food and ambiance makes this restaurant a favorite for many in the Spokane Area.

Frank’s Diner

1516 W. 2nd Ave., Spokane, WA 99201

I couldn’t speak of Spokane restaurants without mentioning Frank’s Diner. This restaurant is a local tradition in Spokane. It may not look like much but the food here is impeccable. This is a do not miss place to eat if you are in Spokane. Voted Best Breakfast 19 years Running!
