Why Rifugio's Country Italian Cuisine?
"Our Food is Your Food"
With that commitment, we strive for organic foods that are sourced from local farms. We love fresh food, family, art, music, and are passionate to bring them together for one marvelous meal. We chose to be a destination just outside of Bellingham and along the Mt. Baker Highway in order to create the relaxed atmosphere the countryside is known for; peace and quite. With a comfortable homestead we expanded our calm environment into our Sculpture Garden. The Sculpture Garden acts as a venue for a variety of artistic mediums ranging from ballet to live musical performances; with the beautiful Deming Homestead Eagle Park as the backdrop.
Artists, intellectuals, families, hikers, travelers, and foodies gather here to find refuge in our delightful sanctuary; we hope you do too.
