My favorite place, period. Suggestions include the marionberry barbeque sauce ribs, Seared Duck breast risotto (#1 all-time favorite dish) , and the corn/dungeness crab/ and shrimp chowder. (The chowder will change your life.. seriously. They have a bar with tvs and a whole different menu that includes a duck confit toastada which is incredible, fresh local cod fish & chips and a burger that is amazing as well. They have localy sourced ingredients and do not skimp. This is one of the few places that I don' t have any problem with any of the pricing. In fact, I would gladly pay more for what you get. Cocktails are made with care and well poured. This place is a special experience and to be located in a sleepy little coastal town make it a very special place. You should definitely give the DP a try. The service staff and chefs are friendly and courtious which compltes the overall dining experience and makes dinner at the beach great. every time. This 5 stars is well deserved. Oh, and you can watch planes/helicopters land and take off right outside. Try the bananas foster too....
This place is quite the find! Don't be deterred by the outside appearance. The chef knows her stuff, is wonderfully creative, and delivers exceptional food. Too many places on the coast fall short and cost too much. The Delicate Palette delivers thoughtful, challenging dishes that are a little spendy but worth every penny. The ribs are wonderful! You'll finish ALL t of the marionberry BBQ sauce with a fork. Crab cakes were light but flavorful. Salads are anything but boring and they have a great wine and beer selection. The bar menu is equally good in case you're on a budget. And they serve one of the best lobster rolls I've ever had. Tis from a guy who grew up in Massachusetts and got to experience the best that Cape Code could offer.
Stopped in for a pre-dinner appetizer & were not disappointed...the pan-fried oysters (& scallop & prawn) were cooked to perfection & were accompanied with a side field green salad with citrus vinegrette dressing. Had draft beer with appetizer, but they seemed to have a good selections of wines as well. We'll be back!

Excellent bed and breakfast. Quaint, clean, with all of the little touches that make a b&b great. Mike is fantastic. The room had everything we'd want: a big bathtub, shower, comfortable and clean bed, beautiful woodwork (done by Mike), and toiletries provided. My boyfriend is gluten free and I am a vegetarian, and Mike was accommodating to both of us. In the afternoons he makes cookies, and made my boyfriend gluten free cookies each day. For breakfast, which was truly fantastic, Mike provided excellent coffee, gluten free and vegetarian options, and warm muffins. He also has a hot tub and deck with seating.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights during the week to celebrate our 3 year anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Mike was AMAZING! He keeps an immaculate and tasteful home full of every luxury you could hope for; delicious wine with keepsake glasses, bathrobes, hot tub access, fresh made coffee and tea, homemade cookies, and not to mention the BEST breakfast in town. We were so impressed with his cooking, and he was more than happy to accommodate my vegan diet. We will definitely be back next time we take a beach getaway!
My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Craftsman for our honeymoon. As soon as we walked in the door, we were immediately relaxed. It was just what we needed after our long and busy weekend. The decor was very tasteful, mainly decorated with craftsman/mission style furniture and beach scene paintings. Mike, the owner was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the area.We spent a lot of time talking to him, especially about his restaurant and day trip recommendations; all of which were spot on. We highly recommend the Delicate Palate Bistro across the street and the Three Capes Loop for a day trip. Mike also made delicious breakfasts such as; bananas fosters french toast (I usually do not like french toast but seriously, this was good!), Stratta, Frittata, and an apple oven pancake. They were all so good! He also served warm muffins, orange juice and Miele espresso coffee before breakfast every morning. It was fun to meet and chat with other guests during breakfast, as well. Some were driving down the coast to/from California, while others just stayed a night or two as a side trip from a business conference or a getaway from Portland. We stayed in the Prairie room, which had a great claw foot tub, a down comforter/nice linens on the bed and had a deck that looked out to the front toward the beach. Very comfortable all around. We highly recommend this hidden gem!

Great bakery and restaurant, and a worthy latte in addition. If you're in Pacific City, you need to come here for at least one meal. This place is a gem, with delicious diner-like breakfasts that offer just a little bit of sweet with a lot of additional flavors. The french toast with fruit compote was amazing, and probably the best french toast I've ever had. The blueberry bun was packed with fresh blueberries, twisted in a buttery brioche with the sweet frosting giving it that bit of sugar without making the blueberries fade into the background. I was most impressed with the latte, as that I don't expect high quality espresso shots from a restaurant that isn't first, and foremost, a Starbucks-style cafe, but this was probably the best coffee drink I had in Pacific City, and definitely worth the stop on the way out of town. The service is great, but keep in mind this place can get a little busy as the late morning turns into afternoon on the weekends. This place is definitely not to be missed.
Love this cafe! The space has nice windows with good light & a counter of baked goods to torture you! We came for the Gingerbread Pancakes & they were absolutely amazing! Staff are sweet & are always there to refill your coffee!
The light filled wooden-floored cafe has windows on all sides and pretty views of the town and slough. It probably has the best bakery in the area with all types of scones. The large and breakfast is served until 3, and has many things to choose from.

Los Caporales

Very friendly family run business. Good Food! We will be coming back!
We spend a couple of weeks in Pacific City each year; as a rule, we cook in most days, but save a couple of evening meals for local establishments. Pelican Pub, I'm sorry to say, has gone down in quality and up in prices over the last few years, but the positive side of that is other local eateries getting more customers. One thing to note - there are several establishments that close on Wednesdays (arguably the slowest day of the week, tourist-wise) - your best bet is usually Thursday-Sunday if you're not sure. On Wednesday, we visited the cute little resale shop on the corner of Pacific Avenue and Brooten. Midge, one of the owners, raved about Blackfish Cafe but lamented that it was closed on Wednesdays; when asked about Los Caporales, kitty-corner to the shop, she was enthusiastic about it, too. Midge a long-time local (and a really nice lady) and had nothing but praise for Los Caporales. Mr, the boy and I headed over and weren't disappointed by Midge's promises of a comfortable family-owned restaurant with generous portions. Decorating the walls of the entry are polaroid snapshots of people who visited on their birthdays (mine was two days earlier - should've visited sooner!). We were escorted to a booth in the small, somewhat cramped dining room. I was hesitant at first - running down the middle of the dining was a large table filled with people; it's been my experience that large tables of diners = NOISE, but this group defied that experience. They were quiet, polite and very well-mannered; despite being only a foot away, we barely noticed when they left. The staff are attentive and available; our water was refilled constantly, and the server was prompt in taking and delivering our orders. Mr had the super burrito, I had the verde tostada (extra spicy) and the boy had a burger (of course). I'm not a burger fan, but if I was, I wouldn't recommend it - the patty was dry and almost charred. The Mex, however, was delicious. My tostada was topped with a generous amount of lettuce (yay!) but not really enough tomatoes (boo) or cheese (double-boo). The incredible verde made up for the skimp, though. We also had their cranberry margaritas, which we both enjoyed. The server was very specific when we ordered - crushed or on the rocks? Rimmed with salt or sugar? This was a pleasant change, as I like salt rimmed on the rocks and many restaurants just add their own rim (usually sugar, which I wipe off) without asking our preference. The chips were OK - a little heavy on the corn - and I didn't care for the salsa, which had a distinctly onion-y taste to it and was watery. Mr ate his entire plate, and some of mine and pronounced it delicious. The boy ate his burger and most of his fries - again, I wouldn't recommend the American food options, as the fries were Ore Ida frozen crinkle cut types, obviously reheated and devoid of flavor. But hey, that's what you get when you order burgers at a Mexican place! We'll definitely be back - the generous portions meant a generous lunch the next day that was still awesome reheated!
Lots of deliciousness here. I had a chili rellano, enchilada and soft taco all good, as were the beans. Husband had the fish tacos which he really enjoyed. They are not skimpy with the fillings either. I also enjoyed my glass of Sangria

Pretty decent coffee shop. They brew five rivers coffee here from Tillamook. Pretty open area overlooking haystack rock. They have a nice little deli too. Service was a little slow but they were training a new person. Overall, nice stop!
A cute little joint on the more pulchritudinous end of Pacific City. Always warm on a cold, blusterous day. Plenty to eat and drink. Clean/Bright/Warm WiFi
Talk about overpriced. The coffee was good, but I would hope so for $5.50 for a 16 oz. I ordered the sneaker wave and it was delicious. I will never go back though. I ordered two drinks and two breakfast sandwiches and the total was $26! What a joke!

Got a cup of their Clam Chowder and the fish and chips for lunch. The chowder was great! Lots of clam and the perfect amount of richness. A lot better than Moe's in my opinion. The fish and chips were fresh and flaky and not 'swimming' in breading. The fries are wicked tastes too. Great food, and quick personable service, this place is a must of you're in the vicinity!
Excellent food and service! Love it there and will definitely return. I recommend it. Also the drinks were awesome
Upside: Great day at the beach, good beer. Downside: Slow Service, my fish and chips didn't have much fish, and the fries were average. Three stars it shall be! I like the bar in there, I'd definitely get some brews if I was hanging in Pacific City, but I might seek food elsewhere.

Doryland Pizza

33315 Cape Kiwanda Dr

Reviews:
The man was craving pizza... rather odd when you consider we were camping and had planned all sorts of campfire centric things such as hot dogs, etc. From Cape Lookout, the closest pizza option was Doryland Pizza. As we used to frequent Pacific City, we knew it was there, but had never tried it. So on July 4th, of all days, we braved the crowds and headed into Pacific City. The place was hopping busy, but turnover was good. It's a low key, back to basics type place in terms of decor and seating. I imagine on most days it was clean, but on the busiest beach weekend of the year... well, it still didn't look too bad. We ordered at the counter and the service was okay... but our cashier seemed new, as she struggled with basic things such as understanding what you meant when you read a pizza name right off the menu board behind her head, counting change... and someone from the back kept a close eye on her and kept yelling at her! So I can't give them high marks for professionalism... The air was just full of amazingly yummy smells, and the pies going to other tables sure looked promising. We ordered the deluxe, and were really pleased when ours came out; it was covered with a lot of toppings, and it all looked fresh and perfectly cooked. The crust is very good; crisp on the bottom, substantial but not THICK, and has a great flavor with a slight chew to it. And indeed, the toppings were fresh and plentiful. But... the sauce was nowhere to be found. And this after I'd asked for "extra sauce." I'd seen the prep table, and they used a paintbrush to distribute a thick paste-like sauce from the center. But I'm not exaggerating when I say you could not taste it. You couldn't even see it, save for a slight pink cast to the crust beneath the toppings. A pizza is made by it's crust and it's sauce. Everything else is just things people can get at the grocery (cheese, vegetables, meats, etc.). So you gotta have both. And with no sauce to be found, it totally ruined what could have been a great pizza. My husband, usually all for pizza leftovers, wanted nothing to do with these. And when I did warm up mine, I dipped it in some marinara. Could there have been a mistake? Could my "I've never done this before" cashier have somehow written down something other than "extra sauce?" I'll never know. Because if we're in the area and up for pizza again, I'm headed over to the Pelican where I know their pizzas are orgasmic, from crust to cheese... including sauce!
Very high price. No discount for cancer kids visiting the very near respite home. Stay away. Sometimes just a little good will ($1.00 off. %.10 off) goes a long way and indifference gets notable feedback. Stay clear they SUCK!
Decent pizza, great garlicky crust.
