Where to eat and drink in Bend Oregon
The restaurant scene in and around Bend has experienced an influx of fresh culinary talent rivaling most major metropolitan cities. No longer thought of as just a recreation destination, Bend is now considered a destination for food lovers, or what we refer to as 'foodies'. Here are some of our favorite places to eat.
COFFEE + BREAKFAST
In order to start the day of right, most of us need our morning coffee. Backporch Coffee Roasters, Thump, Companion Coffeehouse and Spoken Moto serving Megaphone Coffee, Wild Roots Coffee House serving Stumptown Coffee are all 'can't go wrong' options.
CHOW is THE brunch spot in Bend, Victorian Cafe is amazing and McKay Cottage has been voted best breakfast in Bend for the last 7 years straight. Jacksons Corner, Bad Wolf, Sparrow Bakery all offer exceptional breakfast eats.
Who doesn't love to eat? These are fantastic lunch + dinner places for you. A family friendly environment and amazing farm to table food can be found at Jacksons Corner, amazing tacos at El Sancho, Spork for pure yumminess, Parilla Grill for the fish burrito, Barrio for Latin food, Pacific Pizza + Brew for pizza. Is it a special occasion? I suggest either Ariana or Zydeco.
BEER + COCKTAILS
There are 19 breweries in Bend, Oregon. Here are a few places to enjoy a pint. CRUX, McMenamins, Deschutes, 10 Barrel, Worthy Brewing, Sunriver Brewing, Boneyard Beer, and GoodLife Brewing. Do you prefer a good cocktail? We'd suggest The Dogwood Cocktail Cabin, 900 Wall, or Hola! for the Red Cactus margarita.
