The Best of Everything

The Best of the Inland Northwest Readers Poll 2017
Here at the Inlander, the Best of the Inland Northwest is one of our faves. Obviously it's the same for you, dear readers, as it flies off the racks and across social media when it's published every March.

Sandpoint

Best Of SANDPOINT

Some of the best places to visit in Sandpoint also have plenty of history there. At HOOT OWL CAFE, countless owls — macramé wall hangings, hand-carved signs, elaborately painted ceramic pieces — have adorned this eatery for more than four decades.

Best Food Event/Festival

PIG OUT IN THE PARK: 2017 Hall of Fame Inductee
The way to a community's heart, to repurpose an old axiom, is through its stomach. That's probably why Pig Out in the Park is celebrating not only its 38th year as a festival, but its 10th year of being ranked as Spokane's premier food and music event, earning it a spot in the Best Of Hall of Fame.

Best Burrito

Satellite Diner: 2017 Hall of Fame Inductee
The Satellite Diner enters the Best Of Hall of Fame this year after racking up 10 years of well-deserved wins. Fans of the diner — and it has earned those by the tableful over the past two decades — will have their own reasons for keeping the Satellite at the very top of the rankings, but founder Colleen Freeman says its unique appeal primarily comes down to one thing: consistency.

Best New Nightspot (Opened in 2016-17)

Hogwash Whiskey Den
In several respects, the timing of Hogwash Whiskey Den's debut in the days directly after last year's Thanksgiving holiday couldn't have been better. Opening to the public over a long holiday weekend gave locals a new place to show off to their visiting friends and family, as an example to say: "Look how cool our city has become!"

Best Skatepark

Hillyard Skateboard Park
Nestled in the northeast corner of Harmon Field, the Hillyard Skateboard Park crams plenty of features into a moderately sized plot of concrete. The coiled bowl wraparound offers enough drop-ins to fulfill the needs of boarders and BMXers.

Best Of 2017 | KIDS & FAMILY

We're not entirely sure how many children vote in our Best Of the Inland Northwest poll — in the interest of democracy, we don't impose age restrictions — but we can confirm that the accolades earned in the Kids and Family category are highly sought after. And these awards also don't go unappreciated, either.

Best Furniture

The Tin Roof
Whether you want to tie a room together or you're redoing your space from the ground up, the Tin Roof's staff of interior designers are happy to help you find the best décor and furniture to accomplish your look. The Spokane store got its start way back in 1945 as Acme Electric, selling TVs, and later on, computers.

Best Barbershop

Brickyard Barbershop
The shockingly cold towel wrapped around my face is a wake-up call from an utterly luxurious experience — a straight-razor shave at Brickyard Barbershop. The brisk return to reality came after some serious quality time in the chair, as various lotions and potions were massaged into my beard, along with multiple rounds of hot towels that nearly put me into a trance despite the British metal playing over the shop's sound system.

Best Of THE PALOUSE

On a day in March when the Palouse woke up to a fresh blanket of slushy snow, Moscow schools called a snow day and three friends went to breakfast to celebrate. They picked THE BREAKFAST CLUB, their favorite spot.
