I'd appreciate any feedback on chowhounders' ventures along the Oregon coast. We missed the Panini Bakery in Newport (Nye Beach) this past weekend, but hope to try to get there before closing time this weekend.
One place I'd like to recommend is Chives in Gold Beach. They do a very nice Hazlenut Chicken and serve the best cup of coffee I've tasted in the U.S. Only better cup of coffee I've had was in Rome, Italy. The coffee was "Caribbean" Coffee Co. from Santa Barbara. I don't know what kind of machine they used to brew it, but they definitely did it right.
For those into Mexican food, El Rancho Viejo in Brookings serves up good food; fajitas were excellent and the margaritas very large and tasty.
