Great stop for comfort food if traveling Hwy 6 between the coast and the valley. The servings are quite generous and the food is tasty. If you can stand the extra carbs their desserts are tasty. Had The hummingbird cake which is very good!

Coleman's is definitely a place where people stop and eat meals on the way to or from the Oregon coast on Hwy 6. Maybe those travelers accept strange aspects of a restaurant because they are on vacation. After one dinner at Coleman's, we're not planning...More

This is the only place to stop if you're headed over the Coast Range to Tillamook. And on a Sunday morning they make the best pancakes you'll find. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful although a little slow. But the food is always...More
