Knight's Diner

There is a place on Market Street that I pass by often.... it is called Knight's Diner.  It is one of those railroad car type of restaurants, (not to be confused with Frank's Diner.  It's hard to miss as you pass by 2909 North Market, for there is a towering  horserider in armor out in front with a lighted lance reaching up into the sky. 

Knight's Diner has been in business in Spokane since 1949 and it is on the Spokane Registry of Historic Places too.

 For years
I have thought this place
was always closed.  It looked to me like it was out of business...

.... Nope, not closed.  I now know that they are open for breakfast and lunch, they are just closed for dinner.  Not only that, Knight's Diner, is one of the many breakfast "hot spots" for residents of Spokane, and it has been, for over 60 years! 

 It's cute!
 It was quite lively while we were there.  The whole counter was filled with customers, and this was the BEST part... sitting side by side at the counter with everyone else who was there.  Sitting at the counter is the only place to sit.  there are no booths.... just a row of chairs at the counter.  The food is cooked right in front of everyone and the waitresses are ever working right in front of where you sit. 

IT is just like the old time diners in the movies!

I have to admit it was slightly awkward to sit next to a total stranger and eat breakfast when you are not used to doing that, but it was fun and this place was packed full of happy hungry people, many ho obviously had been her a time or two before.  They serve lunch or breakfast, any time of of their workday, which is:

TUESDAY-SATURDAY  6:30 a.m. until 2 p.m 
SUNDAY  7:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.
They are closed on MONDAY.


Geo had huckleberry pancakes,

....hash browns and gravy, 1 sausage, 1 bacon
and an egg. 

I had French toast, bacon and egg.  --->

Both of us had coffee. Which was really good!  It was the old fashioned kind of drip coffee, not espresso... (I think that it was that good, old fashioned, "Farmers" brand.)

There are some nice photos of this place at their website: here.  

The next time you are out on the tracks...

you might want to take a ride on the train.

If you like the good, old fashioned, traditional breakfasts, then Knight's Diner is the place for you.  If you think you would like to give it a try, click here for a special coupon  that I just found offered on the internet as I was posting this blog tonight.
