This place was recommended by a woman at one of those little coffee huts you see all along the Hiway and it was a really good advice---Great waitress and a really big breakfast at a good price...
Huevos Rancheros, eggs and bacon, extra english muffin, coffee and OJ was $25.....
Very much recommended...
(they also do lunch and dinner)
This is a once a month special event in the National Forest at the Cape Perpetua visitors Center. You get brunch and a presentation or guided walk with an naturalist. There is some sort of permit that allows this partnership event to happen.
The day we went there was pate made with pork, chantrelle mushrooms - from the forest - and apricots, smoked salmon, the crepes, wonderful pastries and reall pannini, like in italy. Stuffed bread made with spinach and cheese.
We made the mistake of buying a parking pass. don't, they will give you one when you check in, it comes with the meal. It is great that part of the fee goes right to keeping the center open. The view is outstanding and the service, and food uncomparable!!
You do have to call of reservations by noon the day before so they have enough crepes!!
Favorite Dish: By far the crepes. They make them and fill them with a really wonder fresh, locally made goat cheese. The Hucklberries were picked in the forest the day before. can't get fresher than that!
The new Yachats Underground Pub & Grub is well worth going to. The food prices are great and the selection is unique. They focus on making everything from scratch - how long has it been since you had a burger that wasn't preformed? The service can leave quite a bit to be desired, depending on the time of day and who's on shift. The best time to go is lunch time if you're looking for a dining experience rather than a bar. The vegetable tempura is really good as is the homemade sauce that comes with it and the soups are always fantastic. Layering a panini with whatever suits your fancy is pretty fun, too. They are upscaling things by buying local and organic as possible and using eco to go products, now, as befitting for Yachats!
Favorite Dish: In spite of liking nearly everything on the menu, I have to say the Grilled Chicken is ace. You receive a grilled chicken breast topped with cappicola ham and pepperjack cheese on a ciabatta roll with a side of your choice (the coleslaw is great!) and all for only $8. A double decker panini with Roast Beef, Rogue Creamery Smoky Blue and grilled onions (at $10) is more than enough for two.
First of all the food wasn't bad. Second if you want no service or very poor service Leroy's is the place for you. On 23 Nov 2008 we attempted to eat lunch there at 1p.m. local time and found that the waitress had lost our order at 1:30 pm. She offered no apologies and only said computer made error - I seem to recall the old garbage in - garbage out adage. We finally got our food and no excuses or apologies were made by the server. Upon paying the bill - no apologies or comps were offered. We often hear that you should leave one cent for a tip to alert the waitress that you just didn't simply forget to tip - in this case zero was left, as I am sure the waitress did not think I just forgot. We will definitely ensure that all of our friends and others know that this is a place to avoid on the beautiful Oregon coast. But then we live on the beautiful Oregon coast and we often fine that lots of tourist oriented businesses on the coast seem to not care about repeat business - just looking for that one time stop by the tourist passing thru. We apologize to anybody that may experience this type of behavior on the Oregon coast.
When driving through Yachats, or staying at one of its resorts, come in for great food and friendly atmosphere. Even though they serve a variety of meals, try the seafood dishes - Yachats is after all on the coast
Favorite Dish: Clam Chowder
The best coffee available in Yachats and very reasonably priced in comparison to Starbucks-style coffee shops. An 8 oz cup for only a dollar and each cup is individually brewed. In addition, the bakery items are fantastic with selections such as pumpernickel, Mediterranean flat bread, and multigrain breads in addition to sweet breads and pastries. The breads are reasonably priced and the sandwiches, while not the immense sizes some Americans are used to, are fresh and economical. The setting is sparse, open and inviting.
Favorite Dish: I have to say......regardless of how good the food is, the coffee is my favorite selection. The house coffee of the day, while not always the same brew is *always* superior.
Grand Occasions is a small cafe with excellent sandwiches, wines and a vast array of Oregon and imported cheeses (Try the Oregonzola and the Black Peppercorn! Both are wonderful). The freshly made desserts and local, organic produce are one more wonderful addition to the menu.
Favorite Dish: Ham and Brie Sandwich (Try it on the Panini!) and the Vegetarian Pita Sandwich (Hummus, vegetables, etc). The choices of salads are unique and refreshing with choices like Thai Noodle and Orzo along with the more traditional choices like potato salad.
Leroy's is the Oregon equivalent to Denny's or IHOPor similar places known for greasy yet decent breakfasts. Unfortunately, Leroy's breakfast wasn't up to the standards of Denny's. Not that Denny's serves a high quality breakfast, but that should give you a basis for comparison.
Pancakes are the specialty here, according to the menu, and are made from Leroy's homemade recipe. Perhaps chocolate chip is a better choice than buckwheat (it always is at IHOP), but I was disappointed. I've had buckwheat pancakes before and, in comparison, these were pretty bad. The fresh fruit was not so fresh either.
To be fair, I only ate here once so I may have missed out on the better menu items. Perhaps if I'd had the chocolate chip pancakes, I'd be raving about this place. Or if I'd had the chili omelet I'd be dreaming about returning here. Then, again, maybe not.
Favorite Dish: I think the welcoming smell of grease from the parking lot, promising a delightfully heavy meal which you'll regret later but will enjoy while consuming, was the highlight. But that, of course, is not on the menu.
The restaurant was highly touted as one of Yachat's finest. The food was pretty good and the atmosphere of this wood paneled restaurant was casual. Despite the advertisements for fine dining, this place was jeans-casual.
The only French influence found on the menu is the wine list. I had the Fisherman's Stew- fish, shrimp, oysters, steamer clams and dungeness crab in a tomato broth. The seafood was fine but a tad overcooked and the sauce a bit bland. I also had the clam puffs appetizer, advertised as the specialty of the house. I've never thought to combine clams and cream cheese and, after tasting the two together, wouldn't think to do so again.
Dessert made up for the disappointments though. The chocolate torte was delicious. I'd also recommend the hot apple cider drink with tuaca. It has a kick to it, but it will warm you up on a chilly night along the Coast.
Favorite Dish: The bread, chocolate torte and the apple cider drink were fantastic. The rest was average at best.
This is a tiny bakery on the main street of Yachats. It makes for a good mid-afternoon or breakfast stop, especially if you're just passing through. There's nothing extraordinary about it, but the muffins are pretty good. The other baked items- apple fritters, nutty bars (the specialty of the house) and buttermilk bars, smelled wonderful.
