Need advice for a few meals around Southern Oregon Coast

Hello PNW hounds! I don't frequent this board much but am excited for an upcoming road trip to your area. Husband and I are driving up the coast from Santa Cruz, CA on Tues. We will be staying w/ my folks in the Arcata area through Thurs. night and then meandering up into Oregon on early Fri. morning.

By my estimation, we should be ready for lunch by the time we hit Brookings or Gold Beach. We will be staying in Coos Bay for that one night and will need a dinner rec nearby. We then will head back south through the 42 and down the 5. I'd like to stop in Ashland or thereabouts for lunch.

Below are the options I've dug up so far. Please give me your candid and detailed comments and let me know if I've missed anything. We want fairly casual, mid-priced places that offer something unique to the area. We especially enjoy fresh seafood, bakeries, heartfelt eateries, and a good place to taste some local wine/beer (emphasis on wine). If there's a must-visit upscale place, then I don't mind hearing about it. Thanks so much for your help, and I'll be sure to report back w/ photos!

Brookings (Fri. lunch):
Wild River Pizza

Gold Beach (Fri. lunch):
Grant's Pancake & Omelette House (do they serve lunch?)
Spinner's
Chives

Coos Bay (Fri. dinner):
Bennetti's
High Tide Cafe (Charleston)
any options in Bandon?

Ashland (Sat. lunch):
Ashland Food Co-op
Morning Glory (lunch menu?)
Bread Board (lunch menu?)
Apple Cellar Bakery
Pilaf
Wild Goose Cafe (mixed reviews)
