Dinning at Pacific Way Cafe is a treat from the moment you walk into the restaurant until you leave. It is such a comfortable setting and one feels at home immediately. On a recent visit we arrived 30 minutes before the restaurant opened for dinner at 5 PM on a Sunday evening, but the hostess greeted us warmly and seated us promptly. We were told dinner would not be served until 5 PM but after telling the hostess how "starving" we were she took pity on us. Our waiter immediately brought us bread [3 different types of bread - all very delicious] and we ordered cups and bowls of clam chowder. I've always been partial to Mo's Clam Chowder, but after having Pacific Way Cafe's Clam Chowder my loyalty has changed. I don't know why I've never ordered it before. Now we were ready to order our entrees and we were not disappointed in our choices. I ordered the Chicken Marsala and it was probably the best I've ever eaten. The accompanying vegetables [green beans, mashed potatoes, and mushrooms] were prepared perfectly. One of my friends ordered the oyster entree and the other fish tacos. The friends, one from China and one from Catalonia were thrilled with their selections. Alas, we were too stuffed to order dessert which was a shame because the selection looked amazing. However, the next morning we stopped by the Pacific Way Bakery, on our way for some serious shopping, to purchase two types of the bread we tried from the night before, along with scones, croissants, and doughnuts. After several hours of shopping we decided to return to Pacific Way Cafe for lunch. Again we each ordered something different [shrimp sandwich, grilled chicken avocado sandwich, and chicken quesadilla] and we were not disappointed. I have frequented this cafe for about 15 years and the quality of the wait staff and the food has never changed, it is always excellent. It is always on my list of "must eat here" when visiting the north Oregon Coast.
