Inspired and enlivened by a one-year trip around the world, Jeff and Juli Labhart returned with a desire to capture the flavors from the street stalls of Thailand, the spice fields of Zanzibar, the mountains of India, and other exotic locales into the creamy fresh goodness of gelato. Upon returning, they trained under two different Italian gelato masters and, from this combination of inspiration and training, Bontà was born.

Every small batch of Bontà gelato is hand-crafted (every day!) using traditional, “slow food” techniques and only the best ingredients, many coming from the Oregon countryside. This continues the Labhart’s desire to support local growers, the community, and the environment. Their chocolate and sugar are 100% certified organic and fair trade and their ice cream is all natural with no artificial additives. If they can’t pronounce it, it doesn’t go into the ice cream.

Bonta features 18 signature and rotating flavors every day at their popular downtown storefront. If you can’t make it, look in local grocery stores for their pints. They’re worth the effort! After all, they were voted #1 of the top 10 best places to get gelato in the state of Oregon by Best Things Oregon. Text “BONTA” to 51660 to get updates on flavors and specials.

A List for all you Mama Bears

Bend is a great place to take your kids! There are a ton of kid and family-friendly places to go, and this summer has no shortage of restaurants and activities the kids are sure to love. The High Desert Museum is a must, with live animal exhibits inside and out. Once you check that off your list in the morning, take in the warm sunny day out at one of the many parks in Bend – Farewell Bend Park being one of the favorites! You can rent bikes from Wheel Fun at the Old Mill District to cruise there and back in time for a yummy lunch at Flatbread Pizza Kitchen (the kids can make their own pizzas here). And of course, one of the many reasons people love to visit Bend, most breweries are kid-friendly, offering games and yummy food for all, so you can enjoy a cold beer…
