“Great dinner!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

This little cafe far exceeded our expectations. The food was cooked to order perfectly and was really delicious. The chef is great! I would definitely recommend eating a meal here while visiting the fantastic city of Cannon Beach!

“Good but average”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

Good reviews and the fact it had some vegetarian options brought us here.
The soup was good and the veggie pot pie was OK.
The last piece of apple raspberry pie for dessert was a nice ending to a good meal in a cozy setting. The singer provided some very good and appropriate background music.
The drinks were mediocre and expensive, which is why Sweet Basil's gets an overall score of average.

“Romantic superb A plus chef...”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Average”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

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

“Informal ambiance and good food”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

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.
