We have heard mixed reviews but wanted to try this place out for ourselves. We ordered salads, where the waitress stated I was not able to add or alter items on the menu. They were unable to put a hardboiled egg on a side salad!...More

A great place for gluten free and local sourced food. It's a bit pricey but worth the money to find good clean food in the valley. Thanks for a great meal.

Bistro Red Beet is a small eatery dedicated to serving locally sourced Northern food. We are a from- scratch eatery serving simple, real food to real people. Our foods do not contain chemicals, and we do not serve processed food of any kind. Our menu changes weekly to take full advantage of seasonal availability in grown and gathered crops. Many summer mornings find our staff picking and collecting fresh produce while other times of the week we are fermenting and preserving specialties for the winter months. Our bakery is full of nostalgia and decadence offering breads, cookies, cakes, pies, candies and seasonal specialties. Bistro Red Beet is a dedicated allergy friendly eatery specializing in a gluten, corn and soy free menu and bakery. We are always delighted to have the opportunity to share our unique cuisine with our guests and look forward to your visit at our table!
