Wenatchee Healthy Eating:
THE HUNTER'S WIFE HEALTH BAR- WENATCHEE
A light and airy cafe seating area complements the Health Bar’s vegan and gluten-free menu, which is filled with options for everyone. From savory and sweet waffle options to juices and smoothies of every kind, you’re sure to find something to enjoy. My personal pick is the Falafel Waffle with sunflower tahini--it makes for a delicious lunch paired with one of the smoothies or on it’s own.
