It's easy to pass by this simple and modest fruit stand as I have done a few times before on my way to visit friends in Okanogan. But I had heard nothing but rave reviews about it, and wanted to see for myself just how awesome this place really is. And it is awesome! You would never know what waits you inside until you take that first step inside the nostalgic front screen door of the old 1970's building, and see that this establishment is a legit fruit stand/restaurant/bakery/boutique/ice cream stop/espresso bar/and specialty food items waiting for you to explore and enjoy. I think it has become my favorite fruit stand in North Central Washington. In the family since the 1970's, they recently remodeled and made some BIG changes inside & out while maintaining the integrity of the small family fruitstand.
