I'll start by saying the food here was very good. The portions were generous for the price. The atmosphere was ok, although a little tight for a woman my size. It got very crowded astound lunchtime, so consider a late lunch or an early dinner.

Go for breakfast amd and have their stuffed French toast. You won't regret it. I also love their soups. Near the aquarium and easy parking.

We love trying out new places on the coast and this was recommended by another place we went. We arrived in time for breakfast or lunch, and we got some of both! The slumgullion was great, the Reuben sandwich was wonderful, and the breakfast was...More

Always stop here for breakfast whenever we are at the Oregon Coast. Great little restaurant with super friendly staff. I can only review one item since I can’t pass it up to try anything else. The Marrionberry French toast is to die for. Homemade bread...More
