We ended up looking for breakfast in Astoria after the Pacific Bakery in Gearhart was unexpectedly closed--and a fine discovery it was too! Decent coffee (though when I saw other diners getting pots of tea, I regretted not ordering tea), lovely toast, a massive serving...More

This place has a reputation for the best bread in town and they run out of much of it right after they make it. They are not a traditional sugar and cream bakery. They do make things that are hearty and healthy including good daily...More

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

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.
