Frank's Diner

How I heard of this place: On our last trip to Spokane, back in March, one of my husband’s colleagues recommended Frank’s as a great place to stop for all-day breakfast. It wasn’t meant to happen in the spring, but on this trip was not going to be missed.

Type of cuisine: Most of the recipes at Franks started in our Great Grandmothers kitchen, and have been pasted down through multiple generations. This still goes on today.  Ideas  are created, then tested with our culinary team.  We hope you enjoy your meal and truly welcome your thoughts and comments…

We purchase mostly local sustainable products and prepare field to fork as much as possible. We cook      nearly everything from scratch and fresh daily. 

If you have any dietary concerns or have recipe   questions please let us know.  We have a culinary team that meets weekly so we love to hear your comments.  Any suggestions for menu items, healthier alternatives or a line on local products will be discussed by our group.”

Ambiance: An elegant, presidential train car, in wood and burgundy, the entry is grand and inviting, whisking you back to an early 1900s coach taking you across the country.

The character, however, is quite down to earth, with an air of whimsy and kitsch hilarity.

Truly the space is inviting, warm and cozy, perfect for a casual, intimate meal for a long-time couple, an easy impromptu brunch with your family – including the littles, or a quick lunch-time meet-up with a colleague at the bar. It’s quite perfect in most any setting.

What I ordered: For my husband, the Chicken Fried Steak & Eggs ($14): delicious 1/2 lb. country fried steak with cream gravy and two eggs.

He almost excluded the offer of a side of grilled, buttered biscuit, but hesitantly ordered it for me. It disappeared before I put the camera down, after having taken this picture. Mmhm.

For me, The Works Omelette (full size $12.75): sausage, ham, bacon, onion, tomato, peppers, mushrooms, cheddar and Swiss cheeses, topped with sour cream and a side of salsa. A grilled, buttered biscuit also accompanied my meal. Good thing.

For our little one, a side of fresh avocado ($1.50) and a small side of fresh seasonal fruit ($3.50). Even our little one needed the biscuit, of which he ate about half.

What I loved: Needless to say, the biscuit stole the show, however the steak was an excellent runner-up! Grilled onions on hash browns? Why, yes, I think that will be a new tradition!

Why I loved it: An easy, go-to establishment, with friendly service, breakfast served all day, an amazing history lesson, and biscuits worth a trip from Seattle.

Cost: Average ($8.75 – $14 per breakfast plate)
