Unfortunately we do have a couple of rather sad restaurant closures in the Spokane area. But we do have one opening that was highly anticipated and but more details on a new restaurant coming to Coeur d' Alene. Here's the info-
The Ivory Table's cafe temporarily closing due to construction
The Ivory Table will temporary close down their storefront café at 1822 E. Sprague . This will happen during this Summer's planned major construction to renovate this section of E. Sprague. The business itself will still be operating however with a bigger focus on catering , private parties and special events .
This temporary closure hasn't happened just yet however so as of today The Ivory Table is still open for business. The Ivory Table is a locally owned and operated café with sandwiches , salads and a big variety of crepes .
White Box Café & Bakery closes it's doors
After 15 years in business White Box at 1215 N. Ruby has closed down their shop, near Gonzaga. While they are leaving the cafe business but they are not completely abandoned the business, which is famous for it's White Box Pies.
They say to watch their website at http://www.whiteboxpiesbakery.com for their future as they point out they may do farmers markets and / or online orders at some point.

More details come forward for Cosmic Cowboy Grill coming soon to Coeur d' Alene
Here at INBW HQ I've been aware of the plan for a restaurant called Cosmic Cowboy Grill at 412 W. Haycraft ( corner of Haycraft & US 95 ) in Coeur d' Alene . But until now we had no details...
Turns out this Cosmic Cowboy Grill will take over a completely remodeled strip mall section that was formerly a wig shop and picture framing shop. The business will be a fast casual concept that serves sandwiches, wraps, "creative" salads and desserts. They will offer these items made from locally sourced grilled to order meats and farm fresh vegetables .
The business will be a healthy alterative with vegan , gluten free and low carb menu options also available . More to come...
