We tried to have breakfast at a nearby "must eat" diner but the wait was going to be 40 minutes for eggs and bacon. We crossed the street and stepped into Jenny's instead. It was spacious, quiet, and low volume. The staff was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. We ordered four breakfasts and the meals came out promptly. It was everything... More

The best part of our visit was our friendly, efficient, observant server! Our food arrived quickly, correctly, and hot. We disagree with the banner declaring 'still the best hash browns' - they were barely average and not plentiful.

Ate here with some friends. I had a grilled cheese sandwich with french fries. We were here mid morning/early lunch. I was shocked at how fast our orders were ready! I thought the waitress was coming back to offer more coffee but instead she had our food! The sandwich was very cheesy and the fries just right. There is free... More

I love a great breakfast and this place would be my go-to on a daily basis if I could; but even though I'm only lucky enough to get in once a week or so the staff is fantastic at remembering what I like to eat and they do a great job on it. In fact they do such a great... More

I wish I would have asked our waitress name, she had short hair and was older than myself. We didn't have to ask for anything, she just brought it. I wait tables for a living and think this lady could teach a course in it. The breakfast taste very homemade and came very quickly. Good value for the money. We... More

This place will certainly fool you into thinking it's a dive. Truth is they have the best hasbrown potatoes I have ever eaten. It's not in the best location in Spokane and they are only open for breakfast and lunch. The atmosphere is "homey" and many of the Spokanites are regulars for breakfast. Parking is easy and that's a plus.... More

Jenny's is a dinner that it's open from 6am -2pm. They have good food and are fast and friendly. The price point is good with service that exceeds expectation! Highly recommend if you are looking for well priced, excellent food fast with a home town feel!

Was very surprised with this small restaurant. Very inviting décor and staff friendly. Make sure you check the specials of the day. I recommend chicken fried steak for breakfast. Eggs cooked just the way I ordered steak tender. Bottomless hash browns.

We live in Spokane and were downtown in the morning. We actually went to Frank's Diner across the street, but the wait was 30 minutes. So, we popped over to Jenny's Diner hoping it would be a nice alternative. The service was fast, the wait staff very friendly, and the prices seemed more reasonable than Frank's. I liked the crispy... More

We asked the agent at the car rental about a good place for breakfast. He recommended "Jenny's Diner" that used to be a Denny's. Breakfast was excellent, service was good and the potatoes (home fries) were amazing. Nothing out of the ordinary on the outside, but food was great!
