Several new restaurants now open in Spokane

The Inlander's 2015 Restaurant Week may be in the record books, but that doesn't mean we have to stop exploring the ever growing dining scene here in the Inland Northwest. So, here are a selection ( probably not all that opened, but some ) of new restaurants, etc... that have all opened for business within the last couple of weeks:

Caffe Affogato

A new upscale coffee shop within the new Saranac Commons building at 19 W. Main in Downtown Spokane. They will also soon be joined by Mediterrano in another space in the same building.

For info on Caffe Affogato visit-

Globe Bar & Kitchen

Only about a block away from Caffe Affogato, and over on N. Division is Globe Bar & Kitchen in the historic Globe Hotel building. Another bar called the Globe also once existed at this building.

The Globe Bar & Kitchen's address is 204 N. Division . This new business is one of the more interesting on this list, because it's a little bit of everything. The Globe offers a club like atmosphere with a sports bar and a full restaurant.

The food menu at The Globe is headed up by Executive Chef William Webster and features burgers , sandwiches,  some entrees and more.
