Fresh Sheet: Spokane is home to ‘Best in Class’ cider

Santé is expanding its breakfast hours, beginning Friday.

The downtown bistro will open at 7 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Its Butcher Bar will be opening earlier, too, with service starting on those days at 10 a.m.

By mid-June, the plan is to open the bistro at 7 a.m. every day of the week. These expanded hours are slated to correspond with the opening of the Davenport Grand Hotel.

To promote the earlier hours, Santé is offering a three-course “breakfast for dinner” special Friday and Saturday for $35. Add mimosa, bloody mary or bellini pairings for $10.

Santé is at 404 W. Main Ave. Call (509) 315-4613. On the Web:
