My mom, sister, and I visited for lunch. The place was busy, but the line seemed to move fast. The menu was somewhat limited and expensive. It’s probably because they use organic and local ingredients. I ended up just ordering a quiche and a water....More

I want to be fair, so... the food was excellent. Locally sourced and organic, the eggs were impeccably poached, and their specialty bread was wonderful. The coffee was weak, however. Two things stood out... First, and foremost, the woman who was working the order counter...More

We’ve never had anything but the BEST baked goods here. And breakfast was a special treat. We had the sumptuous frittata and breakfast burrito, along with some mighty fine coffee. The staff is super friendly too. It’s a mecca for locals, and deservedly so. The...More

Yummy Sunday morning breakfast! Don't worry if there is a short line outside. There is one line, whether you are picking something out of the bakery display cases or ordering breakfast to eat there (or both like I did!). Anyway the line moves fast and...More

Friendly staff, break selection of breads, cookies, scones pastries etc... as well as breakfast items and good coffee. Located next door to Fort George Brewery, this place is a good morning stop to start the day.

Great place that would be successful in any city, anywhere. Spectacular croissants (equal to those I've had in Paris) and bakery products, good coffee and a wide selection of other items. I'm amazed at the critical reviews I read. Product was excellent, ambiance great and...More

We have enjoyed coffee and tea at Blue Scorcher on earlier visits to Astoria and decided to give it another go on this vacation to the Oregon coast. We are always excited to get back. The coffee and tea selection is wide ranging and interesting,...More

My hopes were high when I arrived, but when I tried eating what I'd bought (about five different items, and no, I didn't eat them all at once), I was incredibly disappointed. I actually threw several things away. The oatcake was like building material, pressed...More

We're a worker-owned cooperative whose mission is to serve delicious, organic food; foster joyful work; and build up our community. Every ingredient used in our foods, breads, pastry, chocolate, and coffee is sourced specifically for quality, wholesomeness, and sustainability. We foster kinship among workers, our regulars, and with our community by donating our excess to the tables of those in need; supporting our local schools, farmers, and nonprofit organizations; and offering cultural and educational events to bring people together throughout the year. Workers earn an average of $13.50 per hour, paid leave that is accrued after three months of employment, scheduling that is worker-focused and flexible, dental benefits, one staff meal and drink per five hour shift with a 30 minute paid lunch break, a 25 percent discount, a fresh loaf of bread per week, and access to wholesale ordering. The kin work involved in consensus-based decision making and management requires a commitment to communication and trust-building within the work community. What does this look like? Proactively seeking feedback before and after shifts, working – not only efficiently, but – mindfully, being a reliable person, reciprocating good will, giving direct feedback early and often, listening to seek understanding – especially in conflict, and avoiding victim mentality by being both vulnerable and accountable.
