Jan. 3, 2017Lake Chelan Artisan Bakery. Order your favorite coffee or espresso drink made from Blue Star Coffee, a small batch, award winning, artisan coffee roasted in Twisp. Chelan native owner Lindsey Evans recently returned to our valley after honing her skills at the Cinnamon Twisp bakery in the Methow Valley. We recommend the bacon and mozzarella quiche, blueberry coffee cake or the world's best crossiants.
With coffee in hand, set out to explore downtown Chelan's specialty boutiques and shops. Be sure to visit:
- Bear Foods Market
- Culinary Apple Kitchen Necessities & Gifts
- Lake Chelan Sports
- Lulu Boutique & Salon
- Main Street Gallery
- POSH Boutique
- Riverwalk Books
- Swim World
- Twisted - Fine Yarn
- Whaley's General Store
- Woven Threads Quilt Store
When you're ready for lunch, drive ten minutes along the south shore of Lake Chelan to 18 Brix at Karma Vineyards. During the spring, summer and fall months meals are served on the patio among the vines. During the colder months, take a seat by their cozy fireplace or treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind dining experience in the wine cave.
Other favorite south shore wineries include:
End at the Vogue to enjoy local wine and live music every Friday and Saturday night or head to Campbell's Pub & Veranda for artisan cocktails and great food.
When you've had your fill, head back to your vacation home at the Lookout, where you can spend hours in the cozy living room with more wine, games or a good book.
