Bend is the home of multiple brew pubs! We have a couple of wine bars to help balance things out, but micro brew is definitely a huge part of the culture. (Consequently, many places in town will have a wait during popular dining hours, even early in the week…) We also have some pretty good food…

Some of our favorite spots:

Chow ( 1110 NW Newport Ave., Bend, OR. 97701–Awesome breakfast/lunch spot! Local, organic, healthy, delicious…
