Very good and healthful food. The salmon was amazing. Ask for the vegan, gluten-free coconut cake- WOW!

We are glad we stopped in on a rainy day for a great bite here. The food is wonderful and fresh. The service was pleasant too! It is a small place so my advice is to not be in a hurry because it is worth waiting for a table. It was a special treat to meet a fellow Iowan working... More

There used to be a great restaurant at this location and I hesitated to try it because I thought we would be disappointed. We weren't. The service is fine, the prices are reasonable, and the dining room is nice. The booths are cramped, but, again, the food has both character and flavor. We have already returned for lunch.

We peeked down the narrow walkway leading to the place, saw some tables outside, and decided to amble down to look at the menu. There were many options including vegetables, as well as plenty for carnivores as well. We were intrigued by the quaint look of this tiny restaurant and gave it a try. WOW!!! I am glad we did....

Five of us, four adults and one little girl of three, celebrated a wonderful Father's Day dinner here, sharing three tapas, two salads and a two crawfish and seafood étouffée dishes, and a delicious grilled cheese.... Plus a great Zin from a very nice wine list. AND three delightfully decadent desserts. In the wine bar area we were able to... More

First off, Cannon Beach itself is dream getaway, a gem on the Oregon Coast with no "fast food" pollution. Sweet Basil's cosy atmosphere with an unexpected wine bar and weekend "very credible jazz" is a bonus in the midst of this charming and art-oriented village. The eclectic menu allows for surprises and experiments, but always has something to satisfy. On... More

We came on this sweet little place and came away with a wonderful experience! A little funky decoration wise - looked like old headboards from beds painted and seats upholstered. Nice jazz music playing - we sat on the bar side - were the only ones in there but there were people waiting to get in as we left! I... More

There are not that many dinner options in CB, but this is definitely one to try. This was our 2nd visit to Basil's Cafe. The food is always freshly prepared so be prepared to wait for it. The restaurant is small even while utilizing the wine bar space adjoining next door. It was a slow Wednesday night, but every table... More

Good food, the lentil soup was great (and I don't generally like soup). The gluten-free options were helpful.
