My wife and I recently spent a week in Cannon Beach. As it was off-season, some restaurants were closed. Sweet Basil's came recommended by the proprietor of one of the closed places and he was spot on. We enjoyed our first dinner so much that we went back the next night! The staff could not have been nicer and the... More

A unique dining experience where the menu clearly states if you are in a hurry, this is not the place for you. Each menu item is prepared to order and is as local and organic as possible. The food was fabulous. The restaurant is part of a wine bar that serves local area wines and provides live music.

Right on their menu they have a disclaimer regarding wait time due to being a small operation with a small staff. That we understood. We did wait quite a while, but hey, we're at the beach and we get "beach time"--no problem. Unfortunately, our server--a really sweet gal--mixed my order up with the table across from us. Our soup, as... More

Charming little place located in the north part of town, serving organic, healthy food with may vegan, vegetarian & gluten free options! We aren't any of those, but enjoyed a crab po'boy and a pulled pork sandwich, with twice as much meat on each than most restaurants serve! The fresh soups they were offering all sounded fabulous, and I could... More

Such a sweet and unique dining area, we had plenty of time to wait for our lunch, which they advise ahead of time may take a little bit since everything is made to order! LOVE that concept, nothing pre-made, and absolutely delicious! I had the Crab Louis Wrap which was full of fresh greens and a delicious tortilla, huge amount... More

Why would anyone be in a hurry, while hanging out at the beach? So many complaints about the pace of this small, locally owned establishment. I personally think it's wonderful. Food is not prepared ahead of time. It is literally made upon each order, and you can see that taking place over the counter as you sit and wait. One... More

If you want local atmosphere and decent food, good choice. If you are really into food, not so much. I made my husband, who is really into food, go last night, yup, we had a quick 45 min dinner...
