Lindaman's -- Lindaman's breakfasts offer a refreshing change of pace with excellent service and a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast orders are taken at the coffee and wine bar. Items include pastries ranging from muffins ($1.95) to blackberry strudel ($2.25). The Express Eggs ($3.95) come in three different varieties: Mexican (with hominy, guacamole, cheddar and tomatoes), the bacon-and-eggs and fresh herb. Other choices include things like granola, yogurt, and fresh fruit (including some gorgeous slices of seasonal blood oranges). The delicious egg creations come with biscotti but the oatmeal coffee cake ($2.25) or the almond-infused tea cake ($2.25) both make an amazing complement. 1235 S. Grand Blvd. Call: 838-3000 (SB, reviewed 3/3/05)





Aki's Sushi Bar and Grill -- Relocated six months ago from its old home -- where it was known primarily as a lunch spot -- the new Aki's is bigger, boasting a sleek, modern interior and catering to the nightlife crowd as well. Offerings (the sushi in particular) are very fresh and exquisitely prepared. The Bomb ($8.50 for eight pieces) consists of tuna, salmon, avocado, cream cheese and some scallions rolled in seaweed wrapper and tempura fried. Served with sesame seeds and eel sauce, it's a rich, salty treat that maintains the fresh, earthy quality of Japanese cuisine. The tempura shrimp ($6.25) features delicious fried prawns served with rice and tempura vegetables and a salad with fresh ginger dressing. 523 W. First Ave. Call 747-4266. (Reviewed 2/24/05, LM)





Stadium Pizza Parlor -- For over 25 years, this family-owned Northwest Spokane neighborhood pizza joint has been serving great food with a personal touch. And the menu is full of choices: pizzas, calzones, soups, sandwiches, pasta and an impressive array of appetizers. The large two-item calzone ($6.30) -- filled with cheese, black olives and onion -- was massive, beautifully golden brown with a substantial rolled crust and lots of fresh fillings. The Reuben sandwich ($6.20) was light and crisp and generously packed with tender corned beef, kraut and melted Swiss. The atmosphere is casual and the service is prompt and friendly. And there's a full bar next to the restaurant. 4423 W. Wellesley Ave. Call 327-1551. (Reviewed 2/10/05, MC)





Twigs Bistro -- Twigs offers food and atmosphere that manages to transcend commonly held food court dining conceptions. The lunch menu of the day offers an array of intriguing and competitively priced choices, including sandwiches and wraps ($5-$6), soups, salads, topped baked potatoes, combos and a section called "hot off the grill" where you choose among seven options (battered fish, cheeseburger deluxe, crispy chicken sandwich, ham and Swiss melt, etc.) and get fries and a 16 oz. soda in the deal for $5.95. The Chicken Caesar Wrap with chips ($5.50) was a winning mixture of tender chicken, romaine lettuce, diced tomatoes and artichoke hearts with tangy Caesar dressing in a basil flour tortilla. Delicious and surprisingly filling -- and worth the 20-minute wait we experienced. 808 W. Main Ave. in Riverpark Square. Call 232-3376. (MC)
