Had a Cobb Salad and it was good. I know its just a salad but this was fresh crisp, and loaded with tomatoes,cucumbers blue cheese, turkey. Staff was friendly and service was quick.

Located next to a health club next to the Columbia River, this little bistro is part of the local hospital and serves a quick menu of salads, coffees, smoothies and crepes. Nice selection, but I noticed the workers do not use gloves when they prepare the food, which was surprising because in my home state, that is required and is... More

Thank you for the review Genny! We'd like to answer your question about the gloves. Gloves are not required in Oregon. States that have glove regulations are actually currently reversing them. The reason behind this is that gloves provide a false sense of security. A good hand washing policy is much better then a mandatory glove policy. People tend to... More

If you like to eat organic, local food, this is a great choice in the Dalles! We had the special, Sweet Potato and Black Bean and cheese Burrito, and the Greek Wrap and our daughter had the Turkey Sandwich, which was huge! Way better sandwich than kids get at Panera Bread. Everything tasted very fresh and flavorful. We also enjoyed... More

This is located in the ground floor of Waters Edge over by the dam in The Dalles. Nice open establishment. On nice days eating on the patio is especially pleasant. Food is better than your average lunch cafe. They have a decent menu and friendly staff. You order food from a menu at the counter. (Think McDonald's only much better... More

Very strange place, no menu. When you ask a question they look at you strange, lol. Pretty rude. I had a latte that was all flavor and no coffee and over priced.

We were expecting a cafeteria style place and this is not that. You do order at the counter though. The food was excellent! Two of us had different salads that were amazing. Fresh vegetables, nice dressings. Our french guest teenager ordered a pizza with pears on it that she loved. It was huge and would of fed 3 people. The... More

First time I've eaten at water's edge. I got a sandwich and soup. The sandwich was good, nothing to impressive though. but the daily soup was delicious! it was about 20 minutes from the initial order to the table. All in all I would go back again to try something different. By the way, wife got a salad with salmon...... More

This is a small, casual, order-at-the-counter eatery within a health-oriented building. They offer some nice salads and crepes, soups, etc. The ingredients are fresh and healthy. There is a nice view of the Columbia River with an area outside to eat in when the weather is nice. Good beer and wine options. Easy access to the Interstate. Good place to... More
