“Great breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

I have been wanting to give this place a try but they were closed last month.
Well worth the wait though, very good food. Like home cooking.

The food was made to order and served promptly. Great gravy on the chicken fried steak!
The wife loved her eggs Benedict.

Service was quick, friendly and consistent.

The only drawback was the noise level when a table of locals turned the volume up. Need some kind of sound absorbing material installed to help control the noise.

“Gem at the Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

My husband and I found this little gem near the marina in Garibaldi Oregon. We happened to be there for breakfast...homemade, served hot , amazing! The owner and her husband seal the deal, warm, friendly and informative of the area. They feel like old friends and we can't wait to go back to see them this summer!

“Heading to the beach for good food & fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

My husband and I are heading to Garibaldi this weekend for a mini getaway. It would not be complete without breakfast at the Irish Mooring Cafe. I love their biscuits and gravy. I always tell myself to get just a half order; however, I never have the will power so I get a whole order and eat every bite! The owners are so friendly and welcoming. It's like having a meal in your neighbor's kitchen. Try it - you'll like it!

OK, I'm asked to rate it as a bar scene because I chose friends. It's not a bar so how do you rate it? Anyway, it's a great place for an afternoon beer or glass of wine, but no hard liquor.
