It had been years, probably 25, since I'd been to the small town of Joseph, Oregon and while some things haven't changed, plenty has.
On a 10 day motorcycle tour of the Northwest, I planned my loop to spend an afternoon in Joseph, a town and area where I spent a few weekends in my "youth". When I rode into town I wanted food and something to drink. While Joseph has plenty of establishments that would provide both, the quaint appearance of Embers and the appealing outdoor patio caught my eye. I was seated in a nice location that looked out on Main St. by one of the friendly Embers staff.
The menu is typical pub fair and it was easy choosing what I wanted. The hardest part was choosing which beer to try.
The food was great, the beer was awesome and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The view from my table simply enhanced the experience.
