This may sound funny but their donuts (cinnamon rolls) are all sugar coated and not flavor. I pick up donuts now and then from a local business that carries The Blue Heron's pastries. Lately they have been bland. Like they forgot the cinnamon in the...More

Wanted a second cup of coffee. This place is conveniently located on the Main Street. Didn't realize that they had all the pastry until we went in. Great donuts. Excellent find.

The Blue Heron serves an excellent breakfast and lunch in large proportions; they are not open for dinner. Food is always fresh and unique. Daily lunches include a choice of 2 homemade soups w/complimentary homemade sourdough bread and a variety of sandwiches on homemade sourdough bread or wraps. Salads are always freshly made and filled with fruit, vegetables, and/or meat with tasty dressings. Two baker's display cases are filled each morning with fresh cookies, fried cakes, muffins, bagels, pies, cakes, and a large variety of sweet rolls, baked on site. Customers congregate there for coffee and a choice of doughnut or cookie. Their breakfasts are hearty and delicious. The owner is the cook, and it is a treat to find such a high quality restaurant in this small tourist town.
