Unexpected, delightful gem of a small restaurant, we were driving on the coast and by chance happened to stop in the little town of Wheeler, OR. It's a small town and easy enough to drive past as there's only a block or two of small businesses. The Rising Star Café was was located up a small street off the main highway. Not being in a hurry we walked back to take a look and loved what we saw. Their menu was posted on the outdoor deck and the waitress/owner welcomed us in. It was small and charming! We had different dishes and both were delicious. They offered alternatives to the common fried food options seen almost everywhere. Today's special was fresh, local rockfish filets and a vegetarian option for my wife. The service was exactly right as we felt comfortable and well taken care of. I took a photo of my dessert which was so good I could barely believe it. I had their freshly made baked rum raisin bread pudding which was one of the best desserts I remember ever having. Next time we visit the Oregon coast we'll be sure to return.
