Tucked away in the 21000 block of E. Mission Ave. in Liberty Lake, just feet off of the I-90 exit ramp, sits a plaza of businesses that one might consider a hidden gem of the Spokane culinary world. That plaza is called Hay's J's Marketplace and some changes are coming to it very soon.
While the plaza is actually anchored by a Conoco gas station ( far from a gourmet shop) most other businesses there are either restaurants or have something to do with food. The big change is the closure of the retail wine shop, Eau de Vie Wine Shoppe.
But the suite where Eau de Vie Wine Shoppe was is already being filled with a new business, a cool new restaurant. That space will soon become, Piccolo Artisan Pizza Kitchen , a small locally owned and operated pizza restaurant with a decent menu of pizza's and other Italian entrees ,etc.. .
Piccolo will be a gourmet establishment, and will also have a bar with beer and wine. A look at their current menu can be found on their website, which is at the bottom of this article. They are currently remodeling the space and hope to open for business sometime in September.
Customers who purchased their wine and beer from the former Eau de Vie Wine Shoppe will still be able to stay at Hay J's Marketplace. This, as the other change there is the move of retail wine and beer over to the plaza's butcher shop, The Butcher Block .
The Butcher Block is a locally owned and operated butcher shop with many other gourmet foods, and now beer and wine.
In addition, to The Butcher Block the Hay J's Marketplace is also home another gourmet restaurant, called Hay J's Bistro. A couple of other non-food related tenants are also there, including Brumback Real Estate and the Conoco gas station with Devine's C-Store attached.
