this find was a surprise to us...a chef that belongs in a top notch restaurant. We are from Seattle and travel all over, this cafe is a diamond in the rough. music was wonderful, service also. the menu is very select, with even a curry anyone would love. Moms pies are awesome.

W saw the reviews on trip advisor and thought we would try this little place. Food was average, music way too loud, and service average as well. Was disappointed

Chose to eat here on basis of recommendation and satisfied with dinner and live guitarist entertainment. We'd include again on a trip here but if eating a 2nd night in Cannon Beach would try something else. For two of us, a split main dinner, one split dessert,coffee and tea and 1 glass of wine and tip were $50 so wouldn't describe as inexpensive. Are less expensive tapas entries if you want to graze. Entertainment not charged for which is good given quality of playing, but notwithstanding was good background for evening.

A small and rather intimate restaurant. Each order is made from scratch and prepared by only two chefs which provides ample time for conversation over wine from their respectable cellar. The food was prepared very well. (I had the jambalaya which was one of the best I have ever had.)

Allow plenty of time for your meal - it will be much more enjoyable if you don't have to keep checking your watch. This is not an in-and-out place, so much the better.

My girlfriend and I popped in for a late snack/light dinner and were pleasantly surprised to see live music here. We split the chicken pot pie (check out the light, airy crust) and the bison and bacon meatball appetizer. But the real draw here are the reasonably priced local wines that were outstanding. Although we were second to last to leave, we never felt rushed. We found Cannon Beach to be a challenging place to get a good, reasonably priced dinner as so many places are overpriced for what you get. You would do well to split a few items here instead and enjoy the entertainment in an intimate atmosphere.
