Here at Grandview we are pretty lucky to be such a short walk from downtown Chelan and all the fun businesses found there. As we start 2021, we want to highlight the “Best Of” downtown businesses and hand out awards to some of our favorites. With so many amazing options, it was quite a challenge to pick just one winner in each category. Somehow we managed and now we want to share our top picks so you can fall in love with them too!
Best Coffee House
The Vogue: A Liquid Lounge
This cozy downtown spot is a longtime favorite for a great cup of coffee. It is the quintessential gathering place for locals or visitors that want to relax for a minute during the day or want to come together on the weekends to celebrate music.
The Vogue features a case of delectable baked goods from fresh quiche to the famous 7-layer-bar (trust us, you do not want to miss those!) and an extensive coffee, tea and espresso menu. Featuring live music every weekend, The Vogue operates as an espresso AND wine bar. Start your visit with a cappuccino and end it with a glass of local Lake Chelan wine.

Best Lunch Spot
Marcela's Cocina Mexicana
Located downtown Chelan, Marcela’s is a fan favorite. Serving up a combination of family recipes made with the freshest ingredients and homemade tortillas, this food is the real deal. A great spot to gather with friends and family and also a wonderful option for takeout.
If delicious Mexican takeout isn’t enough to tempt you, they also offer margaritas to-go. Simply checkout their online menu, give them a call to place your order, and pick-up shortly after.

Best Happy Hour
Chelan’s flagship restaurant is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Perfect for lunch on the veranda in the summer or cozying up in the pub by the fire in the winter, this is a great spot all year long.
Offering upscale pub cuisine with a seasonal northwest twist, The Pub offers a tasty selection of rare whiskeys, Pacific Northwest microbrews, and seasonally inspired craft cocktails. With live music every Friday night, this is a place you’ll definitely want to fit into your plans.

Best Kid-Friendly Store

Whether you are passing through town with your loved ones, grabbing a quick treat on your lunch break, or visiting them online, you will enjoy perusing their wide variety of goods.

With a true cult following, Local Myth is a major downtown Chelan favorite. With hot hand-crafted artisan pizza, freshly prepared salads, and growlers full of local beer…this is your one stop shop for your family’s dining needs. May we recommend the Creamy Chicken Pizza and family-style Caesar salad?
Whether you dine in at their cozy little spot downtown or grab takeout, you will be thankful you chose Local Myth.
