Why should I move to Bellevue?
Once considered a suburb of Seattle, Bellevue is now a thriving edge city with an economy and culture all its own. Bellevue is French for "beautiful view", attributable to the city's scenic views of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains. Located between Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish, Bellevue offers its residents great schools, a very low crime rate, good public transportation, and a beautiful downtown park. Moreover, Bellevue has a dynamic arts and culture district which includes the Bellevue Arts Museum, the Kidsquest Children's Museum, and the annual Bellevue Arts and Crafts Fair held here every July. This prosperous city also features a booming economy, being recently named by CNN as the #1 place in the county to launch a business!
Are there any good places for brunch in Wilburton?
A Bellevue classic for over 50 years, Chace's Pancake Corral is located just two miles outside of Woodridge, on Bellevue Way Southeast. With a warm, welcoming family atmosphere, huge portions of tasty brunch fare, and low prices, it's no wonder Chace's is one of the busiest joints in town. Try the Pancake Corral's famed potato pancakes with sour cream, or the light and fluffy banana pancakes served with coconut syrup. And be sure to order up a side of Chace's famously tasty hash browns. This local brunch hotspot also serves up lunch favorites like chicken fried steak served with homemade gravy and warm, freshly baked biscuits. With such tasty eats it's no surprise Chace's is very popular with Bellevue locals, so be sure to get there early to avoid the lines!

Is Bellevue famous for any kind of restaurant or food in particular? What's the local favorite?
Like any large metropolitan area, food from all parts of the world can be found somewhere in Bellevue--and, based on its proximity to the ocean, some of this food features seafood.
