Lincoln City, OR - Wildflower Grill

After always, always eating breakfast at the Otis Cafe (which I love and which is great but a girl needs some variety in her life, ya know?) when near Lincoln City, I finally got to the Wildflower Grill. My friend and I ate at the Otis the day before, in fact...

We got there at noon on Sunday the 4th and had no wait at all. We opted to sit outside on the deck. If it is in season, ASK TO SIT OUTSIDE!! I usally prefer to sit inside but the back deck is glassed in and practically wind-free and looks out at what appears to be a nature preserve. It is gorgeous. The whole time we were there we watched a blue heron, a duck and ducklings, red wing black birds, 3 other kinds of birds and enjoyed the water and lush vegetation. It was just fabulous.

Friend and I ordered breakfast but the next table ordered lunch and got beautiful large salads and burgers and such. I'll be back to try that stuff another time - stuff looked great. Breakfast was really good, though. I had eggs over easy, ham (really good!), hash browns (good, and I prefer home fries) and shared a shortstack of blueberry pancakes (very yummy) with my friend who had the omelet (choose any 3 ingredients from a long list- she had bacon, spinach and swiss cheese) and hash browns.

All of the food was very good and all of it came just as we ordered it. It is obvious that someone in the kitchen cares about what they are doing there. The portions are very generous and the prices similar to the Otis - not dirt cheap, but not outrageously expensive, especially for the coast - about $7-10 per person for a full breakfast, you can do it cheaper, though. The service was good and friendly and the atmosphere was fabulous and even if you sit inside, it is so nice and homey. It is an old house converted into a restaurant. They have a couple of rooms upstairs that are more private and you can reserve them for larger groups or, if they aren't reserved, have a more private and intimate setting for your meal.

You can find them just past the Ryan Gallery on the left side of the road if you are coming into Lincoln City heading south. If you are heading out of Lincoln City going north toward Neskowin, it will be on your right a little bit past the Lighthouse shopping center (the one with the Bimart and Goodwill). I think they are open for breakfast and lunch 7 days, but only serve dinner Tues.-Sat. - so check on that...

P.S. - Is the Red Fox Bakery gone for good? They were closed and the windows covered with brown paper when I passed by over the weekend...
