We stopped in for a lunch and enjoyed a great salad and blt. Definitely a locals spot. Plenty to eat and decorated quirky in a good way.

We stopped at the Urban Cafe during a day of sightseeing. Very nice food, great service. There isn't a lot of space in the room so the tables were pretty crowded. I had a pulled BBQ chicken sandwich which came with two dipping sauces. Really more than I could eat but very good. In fact, the blue cheese dipping sauce... More

We have not had a bad meal in Astoria. Today we lunched at T Paul's. We sat in the back which was a little dark but mostly empty which made for easy conversation. The wait staff is very friendly but you order at the counter and your food is brought to you. I had the half garlic quesadilla combo. The... More

We chose the Urban after having it suggested by multiple locals and were immediately smitten with the atmosphere. The service quickly proved to be good spirited and friendly, and the quirkiness of the place left me taking in the scene around me longer than I expected for a smallish sized eatery. Even the old school PeeChee folders used as menu... More

Fun stop for lunch in Astoria. Lunch deal includes 1\2 quesadilla served with salsa and chips and a choice of salad or soup. The Mediterranean chicken quesadilla was delicious with chicken, feta, spinach and a dill dipping sauce. The clam chowder was extra creamy with plenty of potatoes and clams. Fun atmosphere with great food and good service. Would recommend... More

The food & value is so good here! I keep returning, been here four times this year so far! I usually I stop in to treat my family to dinner on our drive back to Portland. Very polite, friendly & accommodating staff. Casual dining atmosphere, a real nice place to unwind & most importantly the food is excellent. The restaurant... More

A friend and I ate lunch here. I loved the funky interior. We opted for different specials listed on a chalk board. You order your meal and pay for it at the counter, receiving a numbered tab so that the server can find you when your food is ready. My friend had a turkey & ham sandwich with a Cajun... More

We were looking forward to a return visit to T. Paul's after our trip here several years ago. The wait staff was great. Friendly, helpful and attentive. We were disappointed in the food. Cajun pasta tasted overly sweet and the Cajun quesadilla did not have much flavor. Even the carrot cake, which blew us away last visit, was just OK.... More

We came with a group of 11. They don't cater to large groups but were able to accommodate us in the back room. Our orders were taken quickly but the service was slow as was our drink refills because they became busy shortly after we arrived. Everyone's meal was good, gluten free bread was offered, hubby and my fish taco... More

I had an amazing grilled cheese sandwich here recently. Cream cheese seemed to be the secret. Although the Albacore tuna, nuts, green apple, and other cheese could be some of the goodness factor! I am not a fan of the decor, and funky I guess describes it. The French onion soup was a slight miss, just not enough flavor, desserts... More
