|Eat, sleep and fish. What else is there?|
By David Johnson
With winter steelhead season in full swing on Tillamook area streams and since my other favorite pastime is eating I thought I’d share some of my favorite places to eat around Tillamook before and after a day of steelhead fishing. Not only do I like good food but I like to get a good deal. You will find both at these places.
The West side of Highway 101 in Tillamook has a number of coffee stands and food trailers along it. All these have access for vehicles with trailers.
If you are looking for a fast, inexpensive and very good breakfast on the way to the river stop at Lindsey’s Lattés in the north end of Tillamook right on highway 101 and join the fishermen and loggers who line up here in the morning. Good coffee and some very filling and tasty breakfast sandwiches and burritos that cost round $2 to $3. And for that much needed shot of caffeine on the way home stop and order an espresso milk shake, one of my favorites.
If you are passing through Garibaldi don’t pass by Bay Front Bakery. All I can say is they are the best donuts anywhere I have ever been to. And they also have lunches to go.
For a sit down breakfast on the way into Tillamook on Highway 6 you will find some great food and some great history around mile 9 at Alice’s. Or stop there for burgers on the way home too.
Near the intersection of highway 6 and 101 there’s a Chinese restaurant called Fei Ying that a very reasonable all you can eat buffet. It should be noted parking would be a problem for a boat here.
Do you want a great pizza? Main Street Pizza on the east side of 101 is your place. They have a great salad bar too.
Eat, sleep and fish. What else is there?
