Bella Bistro

Serving up only the best: Bistro makes ‘coffee that tastes like cofee’ and homemade eats

Bella Bistro has had a lot of different identities over the past four years. Before it turned into a bistro in 2011, the little building at 317 Orondo Ave. housed an auto repair shop. When Owner Flint Hartwig bought it, he intended to turn it into a drive-through coffee stand. But by the time its doors opened in the spring of 2011, it was decidedly a bistro, serving coffee, breakfast and lunch.

Distill, my heart: Former chef uses cooking knowledge and tricks of the trade to learn all about making hard alcohol

When you consider the family history of It’s 5 owner Colin Levi, and his wife and accounts manager Carol Levi, it’s not entirely surprising that they would find themselves managing a craft distillery. Both had great-grandparents that boot-legged spirits in the 1920s. In fact, it was boot-legging that brought Carol Levi’s family to the Wenatchee Valley.

Heaven scent

Paper trail: Rolls, reams and stacks of unique paper products

Pickle Papers, at 21 S. Wenatchee Ave. in downtown Wenatchee, represents not only a unique shop that carries greeting cards, children’s books, journals and more, it also shines light on the charm and passion behind small businesses and provides ample reason to do your shopping locally.
