Apple Cup Café (804 E. Woodin Ave., 509/682-2933, daily 6 a.m.–10 p.m.) is a family-type place with very good breakfasts—great cheese blintzes—in a Denny’s-like setting. Head to Latte Da Coffee Stop Café (303 E. Wapato Ave., 509/682-4196, Mon.–Sat. 6 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Sun. 6 a.m.–3 p.m.) for the best local espressos, plus light breakfasts and lunches in a cozy atmosphere.

For some solid Mexican food served up by a family from Jalisco, check out Cantina downtown (114 N. Emerson, 509/682-5553, daily 11 a.m.–2 p.m., 5–8:30 p.m.). Try the enchiladas cangrejo, done with Dungeness crab, or for more standard fare, a heaping plate of nachos or a burrito.
