Two potentially cool coffee places have recently opened: Taste is centrally located downtown on Howard, where they offer DOMA coffee, baked goods, and sandwiches. Definitely worth a stop-in for your morning or afternoon coffee, particularly if you work at a local media outlet and usually go to Starbucks.
Meanwhile, up on Grand, PRESS has quietly opened its doors. Again, DOMA coffee is served, in addition to beer and wine. More interesting are their opening hours: 5:30am-2am, seven days a week. Awesome!
Review of the week: Bardenay
One of my worst meals over the past few years took place in Coeur d’Alene, at Bardenay. So I was a bit surprised to see a user review informing me that I am “just used to blah-spokane food.” Oh snap, and possibly I am, but really… Take a trip to the White House Grill in Post Falls (“non-blah-Post Falls?”), and at least you’ll experience some flavor. I suppose it takes all kinds.
