Came here a few years ago liked the bacon so decided to give them another visit. Service was adequate bacon and eggs were pricey but tasty. Nice gift shop half the size of the restaurant. Clean and comfortable.

Not as it used to be - prices up and service down - disappointed - food was good but not great - atmosphere and assistance lacking - do not expect to return

Had a breakfast there. Eggs, great bacon, hash browns and a biscuit (I'd have preferred toast, but I wasn't going to pay extra for it!). Lots of coffee. Friendly service. I have eaten there in previous years as well, so I am a return customer.

Drove by many times, finally the other day we stopped for their daily fish and chip special, it was great, locally family owned and operated. Will for sure go back again, next time I am on the coast.

I'm sure they do! I work at a restaurant in Portland, OR and we ALWAYS have something that we can put together for gluten free customers. Just ask specifically for what you need and they should be able to provide it for... More
