YUM! Had breakfast here on the weekend of Reach the Beach and expected it to be busy. That said, the people next to us got food in 10 minutes, we waited 40 which seemed excessive. Service average. However, food made up for it. We had a variety of entrees and all were delicious, hot, and the ingredients seemed local/fresh. Try the gingerbread pancakes! Literally, they were almost an inch thick. Should be served with a serrated knife so when you cut through them, they don't "dough down". Great ginger taste with slight sweetness...don't need syrup.
The baked goods looked delicious...didn't get any but will next time because I definitely will be back.

People must be too picky or exaggerating when they have a problem with this place. If they're busy (there's a reason they are!) just reach deep inside and find some patience and understanding. It's worth it! Everything is delicious that I have had so far. I have trouble trying new things because I love and crave the last one! For breakfast, the French toast is heavenly. The scones are addicting. Biscuits and gravy? Hell yeah! Service? Super nice. They do better than the best they can and it's better than anyone else around here. What are you waiting for?

We were over in Pacific City, Oregon this past weekend to meet up with a friend after he rode the Reach the Beach Ride (I rode last year but in light of Saturday's rain was glad I got to eat scones from Grateful Bread this year in lieu of riding in the rain). The bacon-cheddar scone hit the spot for breakfast, followed by the cherry-almond and marionberry scones (we shared!). You know how some scones are too dense? Or how some can taste too much like dull old bread? Not these. The added flavors shone through. They were fluffy without being light.

Didn't have a chance to eat a full breakfast here. Next time!

We stopped in for an early lunch before driving back to the Valley after an overnight stay in Pacific City. We've had breakfast there on other occasions and always enjoyed the food.
This time we went for the cod sandwich and a chili burger. Portions were more than ample, but both sandwiches were woefully underseasoned with initial tastes surprisingly bland. I'm guessing that the cooks go light on the salt as they emphasize healthful dining, but that shouldn't be done at the cost of flavor.
A proper dose of salt and pepper helped bring out the taste of the fish immensely. The accompanying coleslaw was quite good, however, with a good balance of sweet and sour in the creamy dressing.
The chili burger needed even more help. I had to add salt and pepper twice, then added several splashes of tabasco just to add a modicum of heat to the chili. It could have benefited from more chili powder and chili pepper seasoning (at least I assume there was some in the original recipe) -- actually a lot more as I could not detect any of those flavors. After adding the salt, pepper and tabasco, it final resembled a proper chili. The burger was ample, as was the side serving of Kettle chips.
The lack of seasoning carried over into the treats we took home for an afternoon nosh. Both the Snickerdoodle and the white chocolate macadamia nut cookies were flat-tasting -- even sweet cookies usually require a dash of salt to make the flavors pop. The cinnamon roll we reheated the next morning, however, was yummy!
Hopefully, the taste/flavor issues were a temporary glitch. At least that had not been noticed in previous breakfasts there. We just expected more from a highly rated restaurant.

Great breakfast but that comes with a price. Locals love this place so it tends to get very busy so the service is just a wee bit slow but extremely friendly!
