Some of the best Bend, Oregon restaurants are right here in NorthWest Crossing. Here's a little something to whet your appetite:
If you're in the mood for a cool treat, or a hot soup, All Mixed-Up is the place to be. An independent, locally-owned yogurt shoppe in the heart of NorthWest Crossing, All Mixed-Up offers organic and popular self-serve frozen yogurts with a variety of "hot bottoms" (pie, cake, or cinnamon roll, perhaps?) and "cool tops", fresh smoothies, hearty and vegan soups and Strictly Organic coffee. Not only is it tasty, All Mixed-Up is earth-friendly! It's Bend's first completely compostable, zero-waste restaurant. Stop in today and give yourself a little treat!
Known far and wide for their friendly service, scrumptious food and killer happy hour, portello is the perfect small eatery to meet friends for a quick lunch or linger over a good glass of wine. Lance and the staff at portello know wine. They'll be able to recommend something to please nearly any palate. portello participates in the NorthWest Crossing community garden, using fresh, organic herbs and produce in the dishes they serve.
La Rosa Mexican Kitchen
Arguably the best Mexican restaurant in Bend, La Rosa offers a unique twist on authentically prepared entrees. Using the freshest ingredients possible (many from their NorthWest Crossing community garden plot), this award-winning restaurant is a favorite for the entire family. And did we mention the margaritas? They'll keep you coming back for more...
NorthWest Crossing's favorite neighborhood bakery & coffee shop, Sage Cafe is a popular stop for a morning cup of joe and Karen's homemade scones. Lunchtime fare ranges from soups and sandwiches to hearty mac & cheese and burritos. The cozy, friendly atmosphere is yet another reason the neighborhood loves Sage Café!
When New Yorkers dive into a Pisano's pie, they almost forget they're in Oregon! Pisano's has some tasty pizza and they have the awards to prove it (how does one get on that judging panel, we wonder?). Our recommendation: the "White Pizza".
Tate & Tate Catering
George and Barb Tate have long been known for their fabulous catering. And their recent move to NorthWest Crossing has the west side of Bend rejoicing. Offering easy peasy "Grab & Go" meals, Tate & Tate does all the work so you can just pop a full, home-cooked meal in the oven. They also offer wrapped salads and sandwiches for lunchtime convenience. Their generous portions and scrumptious menu will have you coming back time and time again!
One foot in the door and the aroma of authentic Thai food prepared with fresh herbs, spices and seasonings will envelop you. Thai Thai is family-friendly and easy on the wallet with their great lunch and happy hour specials.
