After checking trip adviser for where to eat around Arch Cape Oregon we decided on the Big Wave Café in Manzanita and were not disappointed. Our group of 4 adults really enjoyed the food and atmosphere the place is clean and bright with flavorful food… we liked it so well we ate there 3 days in a row and didn't leave hungry... If you like foods with a little kick try the Benedict with chipotle hollandaise sauce A++++ make sure to specify how you like the eggs cooked they were served hard where I’m used to benedicts with eggs over medium/easy... Enjoy!

We stop at this restuarant every time we go to Manzanita. They have great food, with lots of choices and it's a nice clean place.

It looks OK on the outside but then you go in and can't get served! Surly waitstaff proceed to ignore you even when the place isn't busy. Tried it twice and won't go back. Too bad because Manzanita is a gem.

We both had the crab/shrimp omelet with hollandaise sauce but I had mine with 2 pancakes. The pancakes were huge...next time I'll have just 1. You can't miss it...right off Hwy 101 in Manzanita.
