This restaurant is wholly vegetarian with some vegan options. My meat-eating fiancé was not crazy about it, but it was a good place for me to grab a vegan meal. The tempeh was a little greasy, which is why it gets 4/5. The sandwich sat pretty heavily in my stomach.

People here were friendly. The pastries (cinnamon roll and chocolate croisant) had excellent flavor and have a home-made quality to them.

This place is in a great location, and they have great food. We love breakfast here, but lunch is good too.

The title says it all. Worst vegan food on the planet, worst service on the coast and frankly that takes an awful lot for me to say. Save your money unless you are an alternative lifestyler who goes to a restaurant in your PJs or worse.

Typically I grab a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll at the Blue Scorcher. My most recent visit included a sandwich, which was excellent. The service was excellent and the environment is comfortable and relaxed.

Laid-back coffee-house atmosphere . Music not intrusively loud. Rather limited menu, but all "fresh" food, with home-baked breads. Small kids menu is available, pbj, mac and cheese etc. The PBJ had sunflower butter on it, which threw my son for a loop. They have a kids play area. Kitschy decor. They expect you (it is expected, specifically) to self-bus your... More

Ok, my title really is unfair because this is the ONLY place we've ever had breakfast in Astoria. We wandered around a bit many years ago, found this and are now attached to it like we have an umbilical cord.... Kind of a hippy-esque environment (in that they are friendly, kind, sort of whole grain, good vibe, good coffee, too... More

The line moves fast and the wait was worth it. Pastries are delicious. It's proximity to Fort George doesn't hurt either.

I loved the choices of breakfast items when I last visited Astoria. There was a line, but not overly long and went fast. It is order at the counter, then sit for service.

So crowded for lunch, fabulous vegetarian offerings, good bread and great baked goods. Everything is so beautifully presented it is hard to choose. Bear claw so tasty with an unusual amount of almonds and almond paste, but smaller than usual also 4 dollars. Baguette was 5 dollars and although very good and crisp, yet chewy 4$ would have been fair.... More
