World market has a wonderful selection of exotic items from around the globe. If you want to give someone a good gift that will be unique, get it here.
Tomato street is the greatest italian in the city. They are fun as well because you can draw with crayons on the table. The servers are great as well.
Barnes and Noble is the place to be for a quite sit down to read a book. I like the Bend one beacause of the monday night chess nights. A great place to have fun.
Chilis is the place to be for a fun atmosphere and good food. Service could be better. But all around a good place to go with friends and have dinner.
The old market is a great place to hang out and drink their own brewed beer, however the service is quite awful and although the menu has a good selection it is not great.
This starbucks i went to was just like all the others. It seemed to be running in good condition, however the baristas there were not too friendly. They didn't seem to care about the customer. Simply to get them out the door. And the coffee is so-so.
Costco is one of the best places to shop. From the cheap prices to the great customer service i would say that costco wholesale beats out any of their competition soundly.
