Please join us on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018 for 11am to 1pm for Lost Restaurants of Walla Walla by Catie McIntyre.

Cocktails to Carhops
Dining  in  Walla  Walla  blossomed  from  an  influx  of
mining transplants in the late 1800s. Within decades, a
roadhouse called the Oasis boasted a seventy-two-ounce
slab of beef, and the old Pastime Café opened at 5:30 a.m.
with white toast and whiskey for breakfast.  
In the early 1950s, Ysidro Berrones opened one of the
valley’s  first  Mexican  restaurants,  the  El  Sombrero
Tortilla Factory and Café. Owner of Denney’s Hi-Spot for
two decades, Joe Denney also satisfied locals with his
morning crooning to piano on KTEL.  
Native  and  local  wine  writer  Catie  McIntyre  Walker
celebrates this rich heritage with decades of departed,
beloved establishments and the people behind them.
