Knight In Shining Armor For Breakfast
We tried Knight's Diner in Spokane this week for breakfast. It was our first visit. Knight's Dinner is in a train car & they've been serving breakfast since 1949. When we first opened the door & walked in, we saw an antique looking train car with a long counter. It looks very historical...articles & old photos of the history on the diner are on the walls. We've never been there, but we were greeted like friends. The woman behind the counter told us the specials & asked if we wanted coffee. She was warm & genuine. We sat right in front of the grill...Not only is that where all the action is, but it's nice & warm on a cold autumn day. Menus & coffee was placed before us in a hot second. Everything looked so good that it took us awhile to figure out what we wanted. We both decided on the Mini Breakfast (I think that's what it was)...It came with 1 egg, hashbrowns, sausage or bacon, & 6 silver dollar pancakes. We both ordered 2 eggs though & we even had the choice to have sauteed onions &/or gravey on our hashbrowns. I opted for plain hasbrown's while my hubby got the sauteed onions. After we ordered, the woman behind the counter asked if we wanted the morning paper. Of course we do! The coffee kept coming...she didn't miss a beat...I watched her as she whipped up orders, cleaned, & trained a new guy...all with a smile on her face & time to ask us & her regulars how they were & what they were up to. The food was amazing! I don't think I've ever had pancakes that were quite that good...the bacon was perfectly cooked...the hashbrowns were homemade from real potatoes, not frozen from a bag. This is now our most favorite place to eat. We will definately continue to go back again & again. I seriously can't wait to go back to Spokane again.
