Have been here many times and decided it was time to write a review. This is a great little place that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Small menu with lots of variety. You get plenty of food and will not go away hungry. At peak times you may have to wait but it's worth it. There pizza is to die for. Definitely check this place out you won't be disappointed!

Well kind of . . . President Reagan said, "All great change in America begins at the dinner table". I think the reference certainly applies to the mood set by the owner and staff at the Cafe on Hawk Creek. My attached photos serve as witness to my statement!

We vacationed with our children and grandchildren last month in Neskowin. All nine of us went out to eat with no pre-planning in this very small community. The Cafe on Hawk Creek is the ONLY restaurant and it was a busy (standing room only) summer night. We had a bit of a wait - but the hostess kept us up to date on when a large enough table would be ready for us. The staff was all smiles and the mood amongst the diners was relaxed, comfortable and almost family-like.

No sooner had we been seated at our table when a white haired gentleman approached my eldest granddaughter. He asked her if she would like to make a pizza! Within seconds, he adorned my 9 and 5 year old granddaughters with chef smocks and introduced them to the Pizza Chef who took them back and helped them make their very own pizzas. The chef smiled and laughed and talked to them for a good 20 minutes - while the white haired gentleman looked on from a few feet away. The girls had the time of their life and the remainder of our family enjoyed watching the fun immensely! When our 3 yr old grew restless the white haired gentleman found a coloring book and crayons to entertain her too.

Our food was great - the service was wonderful - but the mood that night is what made the meal spectacular. If we all treated each other the way we were treated that night around our dinner table at The Cafe on Hawk Creek how much better the world would be! We were blessed to experience their food and fellowship! Thank you Cafe on Hawk Creek!

Loved this place. Had a great lunch here on a beautiful day! Watched them make pizza, but did not have a chance to try. It smelled divine. Good service, lots of selection!

What a gem of a restaurant. Staying in Neskowin for the past week…delicious pizza's, fresh salads, amazing parmesan halibut and Italian sodas are out of this world! Don't miss out on this cute and cozy cafe on the Oregon Coast. My kids wanted to eat here every night! Don't forget about the great wine list, including wines from Tuscany region. Servers were very nice and on the ball. Wish we could stay another week and eat there every night. Would recommend this restaurant in a heart beat. Don't miss out!

We admit to not ordering from the menu - just stopped for coffee. The coffee was excellent and accompanied by excellent service. The cafe has a cozy ambiance along with views of the shore. There is a deck seating area - alas it was too cold to sit outside. It's in a convenient location for beach combers and shoppers at the Saturday Farmers Market which is held right across the street. Get your coffee to go and stroll through the produce vendors!
