Good, simple, food between Ashland and Hood River?

ekt_now | May 19, 2010 08:56 AM

Need help planning possible places to eat/buy good food while car camping through central Oregon. Here are some ideas I gleaned from other CH posts – please feel free to comment on any of them.

My eight year old son is a true 'bland-arian' so interesting food (he would not touch anything like a grilled cheese on walnut bread – with a ten foot pole) such as they serve at Summer Jo's in G.P. will not work this trip but I love fresh bread (french, sourdough, whole wheat); local, organic (if possible) fruit; pastries/pie; Italian/Mexican restaurants.

Possible stops......

Ashland (two days): The Co-op for fresh fruit and supplies; The Apple Cellar for pastry? (lots of good/terrible reviews – not sure which to follow); Creekside pizza for take-away dinner or Wiley's World for pasta.

Cental Point: buy cheese at the Rogue Creamery

Merlin/Grant's Pass: Backroad Grill for lunch? Or Jimmy's Classic Drive-In?

Perhaps buy bagels in Sutherlin.

We are camping near Silverton – any recommendations for dinner or breakfast?

Any non-pizza lunch recommendations along I-84 - perhaps near the Bonneville Dam?

Pie at Apple Valley Country Store, Hood River (sound delicious!).

Where should we stock up for supplies before heading over towards the Bend/Sisters region?

Thank you!
