This is the second time we have eaten at the Laguna Cafe. It was our first dinner there and it was amazing! The staff are great and the owner took time with each table. Best steak and seafood in town.

The salmon at Laguna is delicious, moist, and cooked perfectly. Great wine list as well. The Sicilian carbonara is requested by many visitors.

My most recent experience was having turduckin for my Thanlksgiving meal. Excellent sides, nice size portions, and reasonably priced. Have the pleasure of dining there again in the near future for dinner with my family. Best independent (and reasonably priced) restaurant on the South Hill.

I would imagine you can order the small plates any time. I have not ordered this,but I have found them to be very accommodating. I have difficult dietary needs and they have always accommodated me with a smile.

Laguna Cafe was established in 2007 on Spokane's South Hill. We relocated to our present address in Dec. 2015. We feature Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner on Sunday and Lunch,Dinner Monday thru Saturday in a warm and casual setting. Owners Dan and Chef Debbie collected menu ideas from our families and our travels. Our families have always been in the food business, my Grandfather sold produce door to door after escaping poverty and starvation in Sicily in 1890. Debbie's Mother cooked professionally all her life. We draw on their teaching to inspire our menu of American and Italian dishes as well as things that strike our fancy. We have a full bar, over 90 wines and a dozen beers available inside or on our patio. You may chose to call ahead and drive up to our pick up window to take your meal home with you. Save room we have spectacular desserts.
