Hear that? It’s your stomach rumbling at the thought of Bend’s dining scene. Yes, your stomach thinks. Right now, it’s thinking of mouthwatering Asian fusion, a fresh fruit smoothie, or a juicy burger dished up at your favorite craft brewery. There’s also ample gluten-free fare, vegan and vegetarian dining, plus family-friendly restaurants where kids can eat with their fingers and slurp milkshakes between giggles. It’s vacation—no one’s judging. But we are urging you to visit cozy cafes, tucked-away breakfast spots, late-night happy hours, and a food cart scene like no other. We hope you’re hungry. It’s time to make your tummy very, very happy.
