Jonesing for Java in Astoria and Warrenton
Astoria's working waterfront is fueled by its robust coffee scene. From drive-thru espresso huts to charming breakfast joints, there are plenty of places on Oregon’s North Coast to get a great cup of Joe. Read on to learn about what’s brewing in Astoria and Warrenton.
3 Cups Coffee House
Featuring beans by local roaster Columbia River Coffee Roasters, 3 Cups is the perfect place to bring a book and savor espresso or visit with friends while you snack on a house-made pastry. As they like to say: “First cup you’re a visitor. Second cup you’re a friend. By the third cup, you’re family.”
Astoria Coffeehouse and Bistro
By day, Astoria Coffeehouse and Bistro is a bustling coffee shop and sit-down spot serving baked pastries, breakfast, lunch and Café Vita coffee. By night, it becomes an intimate bistro offering locally foraged fare. In addition to the coffee, make sure to check out the tasty selection of regional beer, wine and cocktails.
Blue Scorcher Bakery and Café
For something on the earthy side, head to Blue Scorcher Bakery in the Fort George Building. In addition to coffee drinks made with organic and locally roasted fair trade coffee by Astoria Coffee Co., the café has an assortment of pastries and vegan menu items made with local, organic produce and ingredients. Snag a magazine from the eclectic rack to enjoy while you dine.
Stop by this little shop if you want a brew with a view. Located above the Columbia River on Pier 39 in a former Bumble Bee Tuna cannery (now a museum worth checking out), Coffee Girl’s setting is awe-inspiring. Sip your java and slow down while you sync up with the flow of the river and marine life.
