Chaps

Price: $$

This friendly, shabby-chic eatery and bakery is off the beaten path, located off Highway 195 on the outskirts of the Palouse (10 minutes from downtown). Chaps serves up hearty chorizo omelettes, homemade cinnamon rolls and baked oatmeal for breakfast, fish tacos and meatloaf for lunch, and curry chicken and grilled tilapia for dinner. And at Chaps, there’s always room for dessert (and maybe a vintage cocktail). Their in-house bakery Cake serves up a decadent selection of tiramisu, bavarian cream cake, chocolate mousse and more.
