The atmosphere is quaint and colorful in this locally owned bakery/coffee shop/light lunch place. The counter staff person was especially friendly (3/2/17; 12:15 p.m.) and should be commended for excellent customer service. I expressed an interest in the egg salad, but told her I was...More

Fantastic food made by owners in this coop. Best bread. Hint, the best local restaurants get their bread from here. Many baked goods, great breakfast burrito. A real bakery.

This restaurant is wholly vegetarian with some vegan options. My meat-eating fiancé was not crazy about it, but it was a good place for me to grab a vegan meal. The tempeh was a little greasy, which is why it gets 4/5. The sandwich sat...More

People here were friendly. The pastries (cinnamon roll and chocolate croisant) had excellent flavor and have a home-made quality to them.

This place is in a great location, and they have great food. We love breakfast here, but lunch is good too.

The title says it all. Worst vegan food on the planet, worst service on the coast and frankly that takes an awful lot for me to say. Save your money unless you are an alternative lifestyler who goes to a restaurant in your PJs or...More

Typically I grab a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll at the Blue Scorcher. My most recent visit included a sandwich, which was excellent. The service was excellent and the environment is comfortable and relaxed.

Laid-back coffee-house atmosphere . Music not intrusively loud. Rather limited menu, but all "fresh" food, with home-baked breads. Small kids menu is available, pbj, mac and cheese etc. The PBJ had sunflower butter on it, which threw my son for a loop. They have a...More

Ok, my title really is unfair because this is the ONLY place we've ever had breakfast in Astoria. We wandered around a bit many years ago, found this and are now attached to it like we have an umbilical cord.... Kind of a hippy-esque environment...More

The line moves fast and the wait was worth it. Pastries are delicious. It's proximity to Fort George doesn't hurt either.

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.
