Lots of good suggestions here already. I just want to echo Otis Cafe for breakfast and Tillamook Cheese Visitor’s Center for ice cream. But, another place to check out is Pacific Oyster in Bay City. I have fond memories of the chowder and Tillamook grilled cheese with shrimp in it. Odd combination, but it worked. Very interesting atmosphere considering it is a working oyster processing plant. And you can watch the workers through the large glass windows.
Otis cafe is a must for breakfast.
Tillamook is hokey road fun and also a must- ice cream and good cheese for later
the drive north of there is flamazing- stop in Cannon Beach- to walk on beach, and for good coffee and bakery- can’t recall name but on main drag
Enjoy, its one of my favorite of manyh roadfood and car trip journeys
I cannot suggest a particular place but on hwy 101 in South Bend, WA, many places have wonderful oysters. In fact, they indicate that they are the oyster capital. The oysters are huge. I suggest you find a place right on the river that advertises oysters and dive right in.
Last time I was there, I found a small place right on the river. I ordered six on the half shell and six fried. I could not finish even a portion of my order. They were huge. Kept me going for better than a week.[}:)]

Don’t miss the Forks Coffee Shop in Forks, WA (on 101 at the West End of the Olympic Peninsula):
1. first off, the place is just plain ugly from the outside
2. all home cooking (the pie really is homemade, and stuffed with fruit)
3. very fresh seafood (pan fried oysters to die for)
4. very nice salad bar
5. overworked wait staff
6. reasonable prices
7. where the locals eat (if they only redecorated the tourists would come too)
Sounds nice to this somewhat new RVer. Just curious, is that the Ca/Or or Or/Wa border?
This is by no means a comprehensive list but here are a few of my favorites. You also might want to use the search function to find some more.
Mo’s- There are branches in Newport,Oregon, Otter Rock Oregon(near Devil’s Punchbowl State Park) and Lincoln City.
Dory Cove- Lincoln City, Oregon. Good burgers, seafood, and pie. Next to Roads End Beach State Park.
Otis Cafe- Otis, Oregon. Great potatoes, bread, breakfasts
Salmon River Pronto Pup – Otis, Oregon. For your junk food jones
Norma’s Oceanside Diner- Seaside, Oregon- very good seafood
Tillamook Cheese factory- Tillamook, Oregon. The best and freshest soft ice cream I have ever tasted. The factory tour is not bad either.
We will be traveling from the Oregon Border to Canada on Highway 1 and 101. Would love to know some good eating places along the way. We will be traveling in RV’s. This trip will begin August 2. Also good places to buy crab and halibut.
