Caffe Vita Taps Skillet Diner for new offering

Served by the glass ($4), Vita’s Theo Blend cold brew is a highly caffeinated, non-acidic brewing method of coffee, and served over ice, it has a rich and creamy flavor. The farm direct and organic Theo Blend consists of exceptional coffees from Peru and East Timor and features enticing aromas of vanilla bean, black pepper and chocolate. Caffe Vita recommends it for cold brew because it lends to a smooth, round iced coffee with chocolate notes and sweet finish.

Of course, after installing the cold brew system, the Diner’s first move was to create a cocktail, the Charles Cold Brew-Kowski ($9) with Kahlua, vodka, Caffe Vita Theo Blend cold brew coffee, finished with a Bailey’s Irish Cream float. It’s detailed on the full menu available online at

Eat like the Normans do at Bell + Whete


Bell+Whete (pronounced "Wheat", but spelled in the Norman dialect) serves modern interpretations of old world dishes, such as pottage with fried bread, house-cured ham and sausage, pork knuckle, and roasted fowl. The bar has a well-rounded list of fine gins, international and local beers, ciders, and respectable wines.

Many of these dishes are well-known to this day. Staples we all know and love like roasted chicken or house made sausages have been passed on for generations. However, numerous recipes were left to the history books, dishes so surprising and delightful they beg for rediscovery. At Bell+Whete, they celebrate this history, while reimagining the potential of these lost recipes.

Chick-Fil-A Bellevue, Now Open
