Food Scene

Downtown gets all the credit for food but there are plenty of great choices right here in SE Bend! We’ve also added a few of our favorites from the west side and downtown, just to be fair ;) All are locally owned and operated and appreciate your business during covid restrictions. Welcome to Bend, where food and beer pair beautifully with the Great Outdoors!
With several of Bend’s best food trucks (by popular vote), and loads of choices for brews and wine, you can relax at one of the outdoor tables and let the kids play on the grass.

Okay, we’re a bit partial to our own 'hood because it’s the best! Well maybe not the best but we have an easy 2 mile loop sprinkled with friendly neighbors, which your pups and kids will enjoy. We plan to add bikes to the cottage in 2021 for your convenience but most people lace up and hit the road Jack, literally.
