This is a great cooperative gallery that features new, upcoming, area artists. There are some reasonably priced pieces that make great gifts. Support the arts!
This is a great, roomy, classy gallery. There is a lot of great art in a large number of styles. One of my favorites on gallery walk nights. Snazzy but not overly pretentious.
The View restaurant at Juniper Golf Club is a great place for a hearty breakfast. If you can afford the calories, the cinnamon swirl French toast is very satisfying. For something a bit lower in calories, there are great egg options too. Expect a crowd at breakfast time on the weekends.
This is the favorite restaurant of my children. They especially look forward to the fresh garlic bread and the special Italian pasta salad with baby corns served before the meal. However, we loved the old location! Much warmer, with a homier feel.
We visit the Redmond/Bend/Sisters location about once every three months and I always feel cheated when we don't visit The Jewel. I love to point out the pieces I like to my husband so that he can buy me exactly what I want for my birthday or our anniversary when I'm not around. I purchased a very unique watch there several years ago made of silver and copper in a unique design and have received numerous compliments. There are many beautiful items and a wide price range and a wonderful selection of fossils too.
The vets at East Mill Plain Animal Hospital have seen my dogs, cat, and even guinea pig. In all cases, they have received excellent care and the staff have been very accommodating when it has come to dealing with my obstreperous dog.
I have not been impressed by the food served here. It is filling, but leaves much to be desired in quality, particularly with regard to texture and flavor. However, if attending an event in this area of town, it is a quick option.
If you want a nice Italian meal, in a location great for people watching after dinner on a warm summer night, this is a good choice. The food is quite good, and the wine list offers several good choices.
For those of you who have never walked around the Historic Reserve (Fort Vancouver), you are missing out. This is a beautiful spot for a romantic walk. For a break, the coffee and pastries at the Bakery are just right for breakfast or an early or late afternoon snack.
Both of my children have been going to this familial group of dentists since they were quite young (they are now 10 and 13). They have been served by both father and son. I have been impressed by the time that the dentists take to make sure the children are comfortable, but also to make sure that the parents are informed. I have been especially impressed that they have not pushed for unneeded procedures. Also, the hygienists are wonderfully personable and do an excellent job with the kids.
