When you first pull into the parking lot of the No-Li Brewhouse you may think you are in the wrong spot.

This is the perfect place to enjoy a gorgeous summer evening in Spokane. You can sit at a picnic table and enjoy a local beer while savoring a Brewmaster Burger or BBQ Pork Mac and Cheese.

Medical Lake Restaurants
Lefevre St. Bakery & Cafe
Lefevre St. Bakery opened in Medical Lake after we moved and I am so sad it was not there when we lived a few blocks away. The bakery offers a delicious spread of freshly baked bread and sweet treats. They have a full coffee and espresso menu to fill your caffeine needs. This bakery is a true local favorite and you will enjoy their breakfast sandwiches, salads, and lunch plates.
