By far one of the best places to eat in Astoria. Always consistent, fast and delicious. Great quesadillas and salads. A must when downtown Astoria.

We went back to Urban Cafe for coffee and dessert since we were too full the last time we went in August. In August, we had the chicken quesadilla and shrimp sandwich. They were both very delicious and filling that we didn't have room for dessert. We came back in September and ordered the Lemon Shaker Pie and Chocolate Hunk... More

The decor gets you in the door. Ceramic long-eared bulldogs in a rainbow of colors sit on a shelf in the front window. Silver coated thong sandals on the walls. The menu is varied - we had quesadillas - mine was loaded with crab and also had spinach, sun-dried tomato, cheese and onion. It was perfectly cooked! Totally delicious. My... More

My wife and I were staying overnight in Astoria during out Oregon coast trip. Walking through town we decided to try this place for dinner. Very tasty food and staff was outstanding. Service was spot on. I had the salmon and prawns Veracruz. Salmon prawns grilled vegetables (cooked perfectly) and a lovely sauce served over mashed potatoes. It's definitely worth... More

I have been a long time customer who comes strictly for carrot cake. The recipe is a family secret which generally results in a moist tasty cake covered with a wonderful icing. The other evening, I was passing thru Astoria and had not yet had dinner and saw they were still opened. I decided to try a dinner entree and... More

This is one of my favorite spots in Astoria. The service is always great and the food is wonderful. Great salads, sandwiches and pasta. Always pretty full because it is no secret that you will not be disappointed at you experience here.

A local recommended this restaurant for their good food. The food was very good. We also took a 4 Berry Cobbler to go. This was also delicious! I would recommend this cafe, but I would recommend to the owner that derogatory political signs on the walls tend to isolate some customers. We realize this is a privately owned business &... More

Went to T Paul's after a long day of sightseeing. Found the menu varied and interesting. Ordered their "special" salad for a main course. It was huge, too big for me to finish. But it was delicious: spinach, fresh strawberries, blue berries, avocado and topped with crisp bacon. If I lived in the area, I would go back again and... More
