Frank's Diner and The Elk Public House

I guess one of the nice things about having Auntie Violet in the shop is not having to cook. We slept in this morning and by the time we had showered, it was already getting towards noon. We headed into town for a late breakfast (brunch?) at Frank's Diner. Built around an old railroad dining car, Frank's is a VERY popular breakfast place in Spokane. We've actually gone there to eat a couple of times this spring, but when we saw the lines way out the door, we went somewhere else.

Today I think we hit the lull between the breakfast crowd and the lunch crowd. There was only one family ahead of us - I think we only waited about four minutes! Forry ended up with a Denver omelet and I had just plain eggs over easy and bacon. Of course, everything comes with half a plate of hash browns so that you end up with way more than you can eat.

Our friends, Colleen and Dennis, have their booth, The Recycled Spoon, at the Spokane Art Fest in Coeur d Alene Park in Brown's Addition of Spokane this weekend. We went over about six-thirty, finally found a parking space (a major issue in Brown's Addition with its narrow streets) and walked over to the Park to visit a bit before the show closed for the day. I took a quick walk around the vendors, but didn't see anything (except for a $2700 iron dragon) that took my fancy. We ended up going over to The Elk Public House with Colleen and Dennis for a late dinner. They had a pork medallion special tonight that was absolutely awesome. But, of course, the company was even better!
