For some people, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Heck, for some people it’s the only meal worth having! Breakfast in Cannon Beach is a long-held tradition for many visitors, and everyone finds their favorite place to return to time and again. Maybe you prefer just a small bite before beginning your day. With craft bakers, baristas and restaurants scattered through town, you’ll never be far from a beach breakfast; take a look at some of our favorites!
A Classic Cannon Beach, Oregon Café
The Lazy Susan Café is THE classic Cannon Beach breakfast stop; when the place has been in business for 40-some years, you know it pleases locals and visitors alike. Poached eggs, savory scrambles and all-day waffles await; the most important thing to know about the Lazy Susan is that it’s busy, and worth the wait.
Hearty Log Cabin Breakfasts Downtown
New to town but well on top of their breakfast game, Oros’ Fireside Restaurant’s warm inviting log cabin/fireplace vibe is a comfortable stop for eggs benedicts and Mimosas. Crab, salmon and slab bacon benes line up next to traditionals, and Mimosas come in four fruity flavors for a breakfast of champions. Get full and lazy, you’re on vacation after all!
French Baking & Fresh Coffee in Tolovana
Sea Level Bakery + Coffee is a hidden gem of French baking, anchoring the Tolovana neighborhood south of Midtown. Lovingly laminated kouignamman and Pain au chocolat, hearty breads and daily delicacies pair perfectly with your favorite Heart Coffee Roasters beverage. Dine inside or out, or walk one block to the beach.
Breakfast On The Go: Have Crepe Will Travel
Make it something special for breakfast with a stop by the window counters at Crepe Neptune. If the hearty menu of sweet and savory choices leaves you stymied.. get one of each! Light, thin pancakes are folded ice cream cone style for easy hand eating as you wander Cannon Beach. Gluten-free eaters: the buckwheat crepe will surprise and delight you. All the hot drinks you’ll want, AND boba tea!
A Classic Coastal Diner
The Pig ‘N Pancake is a North Coast staple, with hearty portions of traditional breakfast favorites; their pancake stack is a star! This is a good choice for families dining together as you’ll find something that everyone loves. This is also a good place to remember the local band that went by the name Pagan Pancake. They didn’t play breakfast joints, but they were a rocking good time.
Camp 18 Restaurant & Giftshop
Have you ever had a lumberjack’s breakfast? If not, head straight west on Hwy 26 18 miles and get ready for a feast of a breakfast and a dose of Oregon logging history. Fresh homemade meals are known for their generous portions; the buttery, hot cinnamon roll is definitely made to share! Walk off your meal with a tour of vintage logging equipment – a real draw for the kids, and tour the Camp 18 Logging Museum.
Hide Your Breakfast From the Cannon Beach Bakery
Whatever you get from the Cannon Beach Bakery (and you really should get something from here on your visit), take the bag they offer! Or at least, be on guard for the resident gull; he’s an expert at grabbing from your hand. An astounding array of fresh pastry including Danish, Doughnuts, Muffins, Savory quiches and a heavenly ham & cheese biscuit are handcrafted and baked fresh daily. Or, make your breakfast at home with a loaf of Original Haystack Bread; a Cannon Beach treat since forever.
Breakfast For Arch Cape Visitors
Since there’s no ‘town center’ in Arch Cape, our Arch Cape guests find the 4-mile trip to Cannon Beach is close enough to enjoy the town’s café’s and bakeries for breakfast.
