Graze days

Hungry? Well, one of my favorite Walla Walla restaurants is called Graze. There are three facets to their business, they do catering, run a restaurant on Colville St –downtown Walla Walla, and they recently opened a Drive-Thru — down on 9th ave.

Graze is a family run, local business, specializing in healthy, delicious food. Once you’ve been, you will go back — you can pretty much order anything and know you will love it. The Cobb Salad is my go-to meal, it is delicious and chock-full of goodies -roast beef, chicken, blue cheese, bacon, lettuce…. it goes on. One more thing I love about Graze: they buy local when they can! They purchase veggies grown in Walla Walla soil by Walla Walla farmers to feed to our sweet hungry bellies.

The last few months we have been on a fun design/build adventure with Becca and John – the proprietors of Graze. Graze asked WaterDrop to design and build outdoor signs for their downtown location and Drive-Thru. Together with the Graze folks, WaterDrop WorkShop pulled in Douglas Gisi Metal Fab, nailed down a design, and got busy building. You can see these signs up at the Drive-Thru on 9th. They are roughly 10′ long by 3.5′ tall & made of salvaged Walla Walla barn wood that will continue to patina and silver over time. With the Graze logo’s color-matched metal, it’s got real WaterDrop pop!

Go check em out, or see it from our Facebook Page, order a delicious sandwich and tell us what you think!!!

    I just heard about you and Doug Gisi this weekend while we were in Walla Walla for a short trip. I usually get up there to Jensen Hardwoods for my lumber, but we were just up for the Market and a little carousing. Nice design on the sign! It’s good to know of some local talent!

    This sign is beautiful! I love the Chartreuse against the old barn wood. I wish you guys didn’t live so far away. I bet Roussa and Zac could come up with some ripp’n ideas together. Keep up the good work!
