Herbal Essence Cafe
Located little more than one block from the INB Performing Arts Center, Herbal Essence Cafe surrounds theater-goers and other guests in an elegant atmosphere. Inside its historical brick building, flickering candlelight offsets gourmet dinner entrees such as bacon- and date-stuffed pork chops and baked Alaskan salmon. Vegetarian-friendly options range from a hummus-and-avocado sandwich at lunch to tofu napoleon at dinner. More than 35 wines, many of which are made in the state of Washington, can also be plucked from the dark-wood racks of bottles. After their meals, patrons can wander the streets of downtown Spokane, or head to the INB Performing Arts Center and apologize to the audience before continuing their soliloquy.
