Our Walls DO Talk!
The Breadline's main building was built in 1906 and saw the very first New Year's Eve dance before the town was even incorporated. It sat as an anchor for downtown until it was (literally) dragged a full block west to make room for a new post office. We then became Omak Beverages, bottlers of fine soda pop, in 1946. The original blueprints are on display on the way to our kitchen!
So... like anything over a hundred years old, we've been a bit of everything! Our building through the years has been referred to as "The White Elephant", and housed an Assay Service, Land Lease Office, Pentz Furniture, and Rutherford's Beer Distribution. The Breadline Cafe began in 1981 and has been having fun since the day we opened!
