Molly's Family Restaurant

Restaurant Details

Every neighborhood has a celebrity: the topless sunbather, the compulsive lawn-mower, the woman who argues with her cats. The corner of Third and Lincoln in Spokane has a shrine to a character whose celebrity has grown long after her death. If you’ve walked into Molly’s Family Restaurant — for the massive chicken fried steak ($8.50-$9.50), say, or the delicious, gooey eggs Benedict ($8.25) — you’ve probably seen her visage painted on the diner’s south wall. She’s black and white with a cat-like profile, a skunk-like tail and a disgruntled expression on her face. That’s Molly. She was a dog, actually. (8/10)
