My friend absolutely loved this bakery. She declared that she would make this the destination of her neighborhood walks from now on. I thought, "What a deal... walk two miles and eat a pastry afterwards!" I saw her a week later and she reported that the bread she bought and took to a dinner party, (a herb and cheese variety,) was “fantastic!”
Petit Chat... is located at 9910 North Waikiki Road, phone: (509) 468-2720. If you are interested in going for lunch, you can call ahead to check on the soup of the day!

(Spokane Valley,)We have always wanted to try this spot when we drive by, and finally, we did!
We then ordered Tom Ka Gai and Mussaman Curry, which came with rice.... and we ordered it at heat level 4. It wa just right.... well, actually, just " maybe" just a little spicy, but we like it that way.
We had to visit again...

There are also some fun hands made crafty things for sale in the foyer. They have things like knitted hats, earrings, hair bows and ribbons, stuff like that; and they have good coffee too.
What a fun place to get some special refreshments, followed by a walk or playtime in the park.

After passing by the ad for $1.00 ice cream cones, more times than I can remember, I decided to make this little ice cream place my destination. It is called The Corner Door, and it is an ice cream eatery and bookshop locates on Argonne St., downtown Millwood. It is seriously, now, one of my all-time favorite ice cream stores.
I loved the historic area of Millwood too. In the summer times, on Wednesdays from 3-7 PM, the little town of Millwood hosts "farmers markets" where you can purchase fresh produce from growers. That is really the only other time I have visited Millwood. Alot of the shops there that used to stand vacant are now occupied and Millwood is really quite the nostalgic... historic... maybe "quaint," little place.
The Corner Door as a business has been open here at 3301 N. Arrgone eighteen years, and they participate in the local Millwood farmer's market as well as operate this store. It keeps them quite busy.
Here is the door, on the corner, just as advetised.
Inside there is much more than ice cream. They also serve soup and sandwiches, coffee tea and salads...
There is more.....
Be warned though, it is a little cramped for seating if you have a large party.... and certainly you do not want to get your ice cream on the books.... but you can take a cone "to go" and eat it at the park. It is very cool if you enjoy this sort of thing.
The ice cream was the best part.... wonderfully good ice cream... I had Huckleberry, a fantastic treat for a buck! They make malts and shakes and bagels and muffins and Italian sodas...( Cremosa) too!
Just look at the happy kids!
