Best Breakfast and Brunch Spots Around Spokane
The Yards Bruncheon
Location: 1248 W. Summit Parkway, Spokane, WA 99201
You’ll see The Yards on this list twice – yes, it’s that good! You know a breakfast place is good when you stop by multiple times in one month to bring different groups of family and friends.
What makes The Yards so good? Their rotating(ish) menu of delicious eggs benedicts, their tasty (and healthy!) brunch bowl – and don’t sleep on their waffles!
People rave about The Yards chick’n ‘n’ waffles, avocado toast, deviled eggs – yes! If you’re looking for a delicious meal to satisfy different palates, you’ll definitely want to check out The Yards.
The only downside to this incredible Spokane breakfast spot? The wait can be very long, especially on the weekends! The Yards doesn’t take reservations, so just try to go early or plan to shop along Kendall Yards while you wait.

Officially named Chaps Coffee Co., everyone knows Chaps! Think oatmeal is just a boring breakfast meal? Think again with Chaps – people of all ages rave about their oatmeal!
Besides oatmeal, Chaps also offers delicious egg dishes, breakfast sandwiches, a variety of pastries, and more. You can even grab lunch and salads if you prefer brunch in Spokane over breakfast!
People rave about the prices and the portions, even if the wait can be a little long (especially on the weekends). There is a lot of seating, and plenty of free parking, but it can get crowded inside. You’ll stand in line and place your order at the front, then find your number and seat after you’ve ordered.
Looking for drinks? In addition to coffee and tea, Chaps also has delicious breakfast mimosas beyond the typical orange juice option!
Location: 7640 N Division St, Spokane
Looking for a place to take the whole family, from grandma and grandpa down to the grandkids? Head over to Old European! While your wait may be long on the weekends, parking is plentiful and there is truly something for everyone.
Standouts include the goulashes, cinnamon buns – and if you like sweet breakfast foods, don’t miss out on Old European’s Scandinavian Cake Plate! Also, enjoy a free cinnamon roll on your birthday – it’s one Spokane birthday freebie we love!
Prefer the lunch part of brunch? Old European has plenty for you, including burgers, sandwiches, soups and salads.
Finally, treat yourself to one of Old European’s mimosa flights! While you can order a full mimosa in several flavors, there’s nothing more fun than trying out their flight for something different.
Location: 1242 W Summit Pkwy, Spokane
Mediterranean food for brunch? Absolutely! Next door to The Yards is Baba, which offers brunch from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (they do not accept reservations).
People rave about Baba’s delicious poutine, shakshuka (red pepper stew with baked eggs), and lamb omelet. You also can’t leave without trying the Turkish coffee!
If you’re looking for a unique and delicious brunch spot in Spokane, add Baba to your list!
Maple Street Bistro

While one of the smallest brunch spots in Spokane on this list, Maple Street Bistro (or MSB) is tiny and mighty! With in-house made baked goods and a variety of options, Maple Street Bistro regularly wins kudos for it’s delicious breakfast sandwiches and baked goods.
Breakfast and lunch lovers can both rejoice when enjoying brunch in Spokane at MSB! Get the Breakfast Club (you can’t go wrong on almost any bagel, or the focaccia bread!) if you want breakfast or try one of their many delicious lunch paninis – and ask for the pepper jelly if you’re feeling sweet!

Best Brunch Spots in Spokane: Kid-Friendly Options
Crimson Hearth (Dine-In and Drive-Thru)
Location: 11003 E. Sprague Ave. , Spokane Valley, WA 99206
Hours: 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily.
Rick Pedersen and son, Kaston, have a long family-history of cooking. It’s their shared passion to bring people together over a freshly-cooked meal. Fun fact: Rick opened the Old European Breakfast restaurant chain with his daughter and worked on them until 2008.
Crimson Hearth has always been their dream restaurant. Upon sitting down at a table at Crimson Hearth, I realized that every recipe on the menu has a story behind it— “This Lavender Chicken recipe is my mother’s, and the homemade Tomato Soup is in the style of my Danish grandmother,” said Kaston. It’s Rick and Kaston’s wish to make fresh and delicious dishes from scratch and to create an inviting dining experience. Crimson Hearth is an extension of the Pedersen’s home and they’re excited to welcome you in.
The ingredients used in cooking were obviously fresh, and many things are cooked in an open hearth oven, making for unmatched flavor in their super-unique dishes. Kaston has been working with Rick to learn all tools of the trade to run the family business.
Excelling in his people management skills, the employees all smile at one another, laugh at each other’s jokes, speak politely to customers and give off a general vibe of genuinely caring about the quality of their food. Three different employees stopped at my table to check on me during my meal and the hostess practically chased me out the door in order to thank me for visiting.
I highly recommend trying their mimosa with fresh-squeezed orange juice. Their Mango French Toast, Crimson Burger (with Bacon, Ham, Onion Rings, and our home-made Bourbon Bacon Jam), Chicken Caprese Sandwich (on homemade Sourdough with grilled Chicken, fresh Tomato, Herbs, Mozzarella, Balsamic Glaze, and scratch-made Pesto) are some of their most popular menu items.
If you’re looking for a “Kid-Friendly” place for brunch, Crimson Hearth had you in mind. They let all kids choose a “lunch box” with toys, play dough, and coloring utensils for the duration of their stay. Kids love their Teddy Bear Hotcakes!
Location: 1011 W. Broadway Ave., Spokane, WA 99201
Open daily from 7a.m. to 2 p.m.
Bruncheonette is simply NOT your average brunch spot. There’s a reason they’re mentioned on almost every “best brunch spots in Spokane” list – they are that good! Bruncheonette has flavors you won’t be able to find anywhere else in the city of Spokane.
With a warm, welcoming, and relaxed atmosphere they happily serve a brunch-crowd of all ages, including the young ones! Offering brunch seven days per week, they hope you’ll stop by soon.
A food truck owner in 2016, Bruncheonette founder Joile happily expanded her company into her first brick and mortar—Bruncheonette. In 2019, she took full ownership of Bruncheonette and is proud to be a woman-owned and minority-owned business.
Coming in on a Sunday means you’ll be joining them for their busiest day of the week. If you’re coming with little ones, assume you’ll have to wait for a table on Saturdays and Sundays.
You’ll be given a kid’s menu featuring their most popular items: the “Kid’s Pancake Breakfast” and “Kid’s French Toast Breakfast.”
On their regular (adult) menu, start by ordering a Bacon Sticky Bun (made from scratch) to share with your table. Their Tamale Waffle (pictured), Shrimp & Grits, Verde Hash, and Chicken & Biscuits have all come highly recommended by other frequenters of Bruncheonette.
Most definitely (especially when dealing with squealing little ones) order one (or two) of a variety of their mimosas!
Locations: DOWNTOWN SPOKANE

Frank’s Diner is open from 6:00a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every day.
All Aboard! Serving 30,000 jumbo eggs and 2.5 tons of hashbrowns to the Spokane community monthly, it’s no wonder that Frank’s Diner has proudly been the recipient of Spokane’s Best Diner for decades. Owners believe Life is a journey and encourage customers, family and friends to savor each moment over a great meal at Frank’s.
Frank’s Diner has long been one of Everyday Spokane’s favorite brunch spots! Check out our full review of Frank’s Diner in Spokane.
In 1906, Barney Smith manufactured Frank’s downtown train-car as an “observation car” that was purchased by the Northern Pacific Railroad and remodeled as a private car for the raid road’s president in 1909. This car served the president of the railroad until 1931, when Frank Knight found it stranded in Seattle. He bought the train car and converted it into the cutesy diner it is today.
Franks Diners and railroad cars are a favorite to many (including a great educational experience for the kiddos). They have guests that have become family, with warm “Hellos” heard all along down the train car. They love receiving creative input on ideas for dishes and feedback from their guests.
For the little-ones, Frank’s is very active in the local school system with their “Amazing Kid Program.” Each year, thousands of gift cards are supplied to local teachers to help encourage good classroom behavior. Gift cards handed out are good for a free ice cream sundae at Franks Diner. They successfully delivered over 10,000 gift cards in 2011 alone.
Making Frank’s one of the best brunch spots in Spokane? The ability to get incredible breakfast or lunch fare whenever you go! Frank’s doesn’t just have great breakfast food, they also have unique and tasty lunch food – it’s the perfect spot to take a family that can’t make up its mind between “breakfast” and “lunch”!
Location: 15 S Howard, Spokane WA 99201
Hours: Wednesday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sunday gets a little busy at People’s Waffle, but happiness and sunshine they serve up on a platter makes it totally worth the trip.
People’s Waffle all started as an idea, you know, the way magic usually happens. Bryan and Alyssa moved back to Spokane (their hometown) and were missing all the options for waffles they had in Portland. In the midst of 2021, one of the craziest years for the restaurant industry (and most other industries for that matter), the two poured their heart and soul into the idea.
The original recipe that’s still used in their waffles today has been handed down through the generations by Alyssa’s Great Grandmother, “GeGe.” During the height of the pandemic, they served out of a food truck and the dream kept growing. In April, People’s Waffle officially opened its first café’s doors in central downtown Spokane.
They have three “future Wafflers” (their children) who are excited to test virtually any waffle combination that could be thought up. Their friendly team is happy to serve delicious and gluten-free waffles using only the freshest and finest local ingredients. Join them for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or pretty much any time a waffle sounds like it would “hit the spot.”
If you’re looking to try something totally out-of-the-ordinary, go on and order their Banh Mi Waffle, London Fog Earl Grey Waffle, South of The Border Pulled Pork Waffle, or their Eggs Benedict Waffle. I personally guarantee their waffle selection is unlike anything else you’ve ever tasted.

Location: 1248 W. Summit Parkway, Spokane, WA 99201
