I like to eat at the Whales Tale in Newport.It is right on the bay, about a block away from Mo’s. The poppyseed pancakes and crab omlettes are great for breakfast; for lunch I enjoyed the po’boy sandwhich with local white fish; and for dinner the seafood pasta plate. It is funky with art,photos, and nautical items adorning the place. It is medium priced but I feel one gets good value for the price. Be sure to observe the photo in the bathroom of the place when it opened in the 70’s as a deli, with a group of hippies outfront (groovy). Also be sure to extend your trip further south, I think the most beutiful strech of the Oregon coast is between Yachats and Florence.
