It is a good restaurant for bistro lovers. Check it out. It is informal. It is also has very good vegan foods, like salads, making perfect for "mixed company". They make their own bread, which they also sell commercially and it is really good.

You can't get more local than making your own bacon, sausage and bread products. And what they're making is flat out wonderful. After perusing TripAdvisor for a more upscale breakfast destination, selecting this place was a wise choice. Marvelous flavor components in my Smoked Pork Shoulder Has, and about as distant from a plain ol' diner breakfast as you can... More

Yes, weekend breakfast is a thing. The best thing. Central food has you covered. Not a hipster atmosphere, just warm and wonderful people wanting to help you have a great day. Delicious food with just enough of a twist to make them unique and very desirable. Perfect portions, I didnt leave feeling like i needed a stomach pump, but just... More

Central Food is soooo good! Amazing foods, interesting but accessible menu, great location with amazing views, friendly staff. It's a great spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner--or even just a cocktail or two along the river bank.

We enjoyed a delightful dinner on the outdoor patio overlooking the Spokane river. The food is eclectic, first time I've seen shrimp and grits on a menu around here. The service was great and friendly. Inside dining has an industrial atmosphere, so i would recommend outdoor seating. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

Went on a Friday afternoon at the tail end of the normal lunch hour. Just two couples taking the day off and trying something new. The wives both ordered something very healthy, and also something you probably won't find in a lot of Spokane restaurants. My wife had their Open Faced Roasted Cauliflower sandwich (with capers), and Debbie had the... More

We haven’t had a meal we did not enjoyed at Central Food. The menu changes with the season. The dishes are always fresh. The service is usually good. The owner often comes out to see how we are enjoying our meal. I LOVE all the breads that are made fresh everyday.

The food here was to die for good! My boyfriend had the Central burger the flavor of the burger was so good... I had the Beef Colorado and wow the flavor packed in that was mouth watering. This is the place to be if you want to try tons of flavor and fresh ingredients! Amazing Amazing.

They are located in Kendal Yards a new development. We sat outside with a crystal clear view of the Spokane River. A grape vine with delicious grapes was growing next to us.
