Serenely located on the edge of Juanita Creek, the café’s cozy, softly lit dining room overlooks a garden that provides many ingredients for the menu.

"There are so many ways for a pricey 'destination restaurant' to go overboard, making itself nothing more than a special-occasion spectacle, but Café Juanita manages to get everything just right."
