In 2000, Chef Holly Smith opened Cafe Juanita, a fine dining restaurant that showcases the cuisine of Northern Italy. Her culinary skills shine through the rotating menu, which relies on sustainable agriculture to source the freshest produce, meat, and seafood. Holly’s talents earned her the James Beard Best Chef Northwest award in 200, and the James Beard Outstanding Chef award in 2020. Whatever you choose to eat, the spectacular service at Cafe Juanita is ready to help you pick a local or imported Italian wine pairing.
Fun fact: The restaurant assumed its current location next to Juanita Creek in 2015. Both the indoor seating and patio seating are beautiful places to dine!
