Best Brunch in Spokane

1st Place: BRUNCHEONETTE

If you see a crowd milling about on West Broadway near the courthouse on a sunny Sunday morning, they’re probably waiting for a table at this returning Best Of winner. With sweet and savory eats to suit any appetite, big or small — plus mimosa flights, bloody marys, local coffee and more — Brucheonette was built to please a group of any size. Bacon sticky buns? We’ll take two, please. Chicken and waffles? You don’t have to say it twice. (Inlander)

2nd PLACE: Chaps

Chaps is a quaint cafe hidden in southern Spokane serving up fresh baked goods and a delicious brunch menu. Taking inspiration from French and European baking styles, Chaps creates one-of-a-kind comfort food that will have you ordering more food to take home before you leave. The beautiful outdoor seating area is perfect for getting brunch on a gorgeous sunny day in Spokane. (Visit Spokane)

3rd PLACE: The Yards Bruncheon

The Yards Bruncheon is comfort food at its finest. If chicken and waffles, toasted banana bread, or delicious pastrami sandwiches sound like your kind of brunch, then don't pass up a meal at The Yards. From healthy options to indulgent delicacies, this diner-style brunch spot has a diverse menu with something for everyone. Oh, and don't miss out on The Yard's stellar mimosa flight! (Visit Spokane)

2nd PLACE: The Grain Shed

If you love freshly baked bread and delicious craft beer, then it really doesn't get any better than The Grain Shed. Using locally grown grains in both their bread and beer, the unique flavors offered here make it a bakery, unlike anything you've experienced before. Visit one of Spokane's best breweries and enjoy freshly made pastries to go with your pint! (Visit Spokane)

3rd PLACE: miFlavour

The list of top bakeries in Spokane wouldn't be complete without miFlavour. Voted as our pick for the best dessert spot in Spokane, miFlavour offers not only the best-baked goods, but some of the most delicious sweet treats you can find in Spokane. This locally owned and operated bakery puts a unique flair and flavor into all of its pastries, and the love they put into each of their recipes has made them a staple in the Spokane community.

Best Eggs Benedict in Spokane

1st Place: FRANK’S DINER

I have this objection to brunch: Too much of it — scrambled eggs, say, or avocado toast — is something that you can easily make at home with similar results. Ah, but eggs Benedict is an exception. What elevates it from a mere Egg McMuffin variant is the hollandaise sauce. Sure, you can try to make hollandaise sauce at your home, if you manage to get the heat and the emulsion just right without breaking the sauce. Or you can just swing by Frank’s Diner and pick up a Benedict that won’t betray you. (Inlander)

2nd PLACE: Old European

Drawing influences from Danish and Scandinavian recipes, Old European has a taste all its own. Nowhere else in Spokane will you find traditional Danish breakfast items created with such authentic charm. The eggs benedict here has a European twist added, which has to be tried to be fully understood. If you are looking for something fresh and new on your breakfast plate this morning, give Old European a try! (Visit Spokane)

3rd PLACE: The Yards Bruncheon

You may notice that The Yards Bruncheon also made it onto the podium for 'best brunch in Spokane' above, so this second mention as voted on by Spokanites should tell you just how good this place is! The eggs benedict is no slouch, seasoned to perfection and cooked with love and care. If you are feeling hungry for something other than eggs, don't miss out on their amazing chicken and waffles!
