Afternoon lunch with my friends. If it is nice out I suggest that you sit on the deck. Great View! The service was speedy and non obtrusive. I had the Thai Beef salad which was tasty. Lots of other things on the menu to try and the cocktails are good too.

Central Food is a lovely place to eat if you want a healthy, locally sourced meal overlooking the river in Spokane. It's in the hip-and-up-and-coming area called Kendall, and it has an eclectic menu. I had the Pacific Northwest Lentil bowl, which was a little small but delicious. The staff was friendly and attentive and the patrons were happy.

A great place to eat in Kendle Yards. Whether you hang out on the patio or inside, you will find it enjoyable. You can look out over the river (not the falls) and enjoy the view. Sometimes the service is somewhat slow, but it is a relaxing place to enjoy a meal. Their bread is amazing as is their special blend sausage. They have a small garden where they cultivate their ingredients.

We discovered Central Food the summer of 2016 while visiting Spokane and fell in love. Last year we visited one day for lunch and the next day for breakfast and were thoroughly smitten. We were even able to buy fresh bread to take with us. This year we decided to drive from Calgary to Seattle and added a one night stopover in Spokane specifically so that we could eat at Central Food again and we were not disappointed. The deck over looking the river valley is the perfect vantage point for downtown Spokane. Our server was delightful and very helpful with drink and menu suggestions. Every menu item is labelled if it contains meat, gluten or dairy so it's easy for people with food allergies or preferences to make choices. Many of the main entrees are available as either half or full sized portions. The menu features regional ingredients and house cured meats, housemade pickles, bread etc.! It's upscale food at a reasonable price. We started with the Pickle Platter which was devine. The watermelon rind pickles were really something special. For a main my partner had the wild mushroom vegan pasta and loved it. (And this is a guy who usually goes for a burger.) I had the pan seared Idaho trout. I love crispy fish skin and it was cooked so perfectly.
If you have the opportunity to visit Central Food, do it! We will definitely return to Spokane so we can eat there again.

Love this restaurant!! A beautiful view as we dined on divine food. Our server was top notch, great sense of humor and the prefect amount of attention.

Started with great cocktails and the cheese plate. We were surprised to receive a large plate of delicious bread because made reservations.....great addition to the appetiser and still plenty to have with our main course. Very large portions....my husband and I shared the Pork Loin entree and were full when finished.

This restaurant was highly recommended by our friends we were visiting and we will definitely return on our next visit to Spokane.
