Worth The Stop

Great atmosphere! Warm weather resulted in outdoor seating. Live music, delicious food, brunch bar drinks and friendly staff. Worth the stop!

We decided to try Chow based on reviews that we had read. Looking forward to a nice lunch out side on a sunny day. We waited for a while to be seated although there were several empty tables. When we finally were seated the server did not offer to bring water. After a fairly long wait the server came back.... More

We were in Bend around lunchtime before checking into our vacation rental in Sunriver, so I yelped a place to eat of course! This place came up and sounded good with vegetarian options for me. We found parking easily and walked up to a 30-40 minute wait... on a week day! Wow, busy. We decided to wait because we figured... More

We woke early, 6, and were at Chow by 7:00 as it opened. To start the day with a rising warm sun, phenomenal coffee, great service and perfect food - who could ask for more!

Our waitress Jennifer was genuinely kind. It seems like people are very happy in Bend. Chow was a great choice for breakfast. I had the Monte Cristo served with a delicious raspberry puree, with home-style roasted garlic potatoes and a side of over-medium eggs.. It was delicious but wish it had been a little warmer. Not a huge deal but... More

Chow is in a converted old house and has an eclectic charm and a neighborhood feel, although there is a busy street out front. The food is interesting and a significant cut above most places, but the service we got was indifferent. The server treated us as if we were taking her away from something important. There are good options... More

Three of us visited at 1:00pm. Getting seated was a bit disorganized. It took about 10 minutes to be seated though there were a number of tables open. Our waitress was excellent. She was very knowledgable about the menu and specials. The menu is creative and ingredients fresh. The disappointment today was with preparation. The poached eggs with The Local... More

Incredibly-inventive menu items utilizing fresh ingredients from their outside garden. Fabulous mimosas and bloody marys and delicious pastries. You may have a wait to get seated but it's worth it. Lovely outside seating area in the warmer months. A Bend classic!

Asked SIRI for breakfast, asked for directions and what a wonderful place. Sat outside lots of umbrellas for shade. Wife had a daily special omelette of chicken sausage and veggies, right up her alley. She talked about the sweet potatoes served with for miles. I had what is now my most favorite oatmeal ever. Blue berries, strawberries, raisins and brown... More
