Stay Safe

In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

The ANZAC Tea Parlour is located in the historic home of Ben Snipes (1835 – 1906), the “Northwest Cattle King.” By 1864, Ben owned more cattle than any other person in the Northwest, with livestock estimated at 125,000 head of cattle and 20,000 horses. In 1865 he built his home in The Dalles for his young bride, Mary. In 1958 he was inducted into the National Cowboy Hall of Fame’s Hall of Great Westerners. In 2004 Alan and Bev Eagy converted the Snipes home into the ANZAC Tea Parlour, complete with its own commercial kitchen. Bev lived in Sydney, Australia for 20 years before moving back to America. She started selling ANZAC biscuits (cookies), famous for their unique flavor, made with Australian golden syrup the Eagys import from Australia. “ANZAC” is an acronym for “Australia-New Zealand Army Corps,” as these biscuits were famously made and shipped to the Aussie soldiers during World War I. The ANZAC name stuck when the Eagy’s opened the Tea parlour. The ANZAC Tea Parlour is located at 218 West 4th Street in downtown The Dalles, across the street from the historic St. Peter’s Landmark, built in 1897. The Parlour is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 – 4:00. In addition to a full lunch menu, the Parlour also features tea-related gifts, including fancy vintage hats, teacups and teapots, and teapot jewelry. Gift certificates are available in any amount.
