“An oasis of natural foods.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Located in downtown Chelan, easy parking and walking distance of the lake. Well-stocked, good-sized natural food store, related goods, and the Bear Foods Cafe Creperie. Savory and sweet crepes, soups, and salads. Crepes are gluten, egg, and dairy-free. Seating for 22. Beautiful murals, friendly staff.

“Surprise for Chelan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We just walked in to look around and were surprised at the selection of products they carry. My daughter has recently gotten into healthy lifestyles and she loved that they carry "Everything" in this small town. We went back twice and purchased things each time. Not too expensive either

“A Chelan Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

I visit this creperie often and am never disappointed. The dining area is cozy and nicely decorated. The crepes are always good. I usually get the #8 or #6. The staff is very personable and talks with you while you wait and are very friendly. I would highly recommend this cafe for anyone who has special dietary needs and is having trouble finding restaurants in Chelan as well. (GF, vegan, dairyfree, soy free, vegetarian options available) Overall, this place is amazing and I would highly recommend it!

“Great if you are GF, otherwise skip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Lots of options here if you are GF, but we aren't. Limited to crepes, which by itself wouldn't be a deal breaker, but they are heavy and a bit sweet--not the greatest for lunch. Service is crazy slow; seems like they can make only one crepe at a time even if there are two of you.

Nicknick1972, Owner at Bear Foods Natural Foods Market & Cafe Creperie, responded to this review, May 11, 2013
At Bear Foods, we continually strive to deliver an experience that is nothing short of amazing for all that visit, and while our crepes do happen to be GF and allergy-free (dairy, soy, and egg free), we pride ourselves in producing food that is delicious for all. While I personally dislike excuses, I can tell you that due to the recent increase in lunch traffic this year, we recently hired an additional employee for the cafe, who was in training at the time you visited, and I am sure that accounts for the slightly increased delay you experienced. All of our food is created to order, so it would never be considered 'fast food'. As a Creperie, our intention is to promote crepes, although there are a couple of delicious salads and often a homemade soup is available, which is always worth a try. We hope that you get the chance to come and taste our unique offerings again, and to see how high our standards are. We look forward to seeing you again when you are next in town. Nicholas Pascoe, Owner.
