Sorry I'm a lttle late for the dance. Here are my reommendations for the drive.
Novack's- Albany, oregon
A full fledged Hungarian restaurant and bakery. I like the hungarian specialties especiall the goulash and a hungarian bread called lantos. The bakery has good stuff. I also like the breakfasts. Well worth a stop.
K and R Drive-In- Rice hill, Oregon
Huge ice cream cones with unpqua ice cream, a very high butterfat ice cream. Snall cones 2 large scoops, medium 4 scoops, large 6 scoops. You also have to have a minmum of two scoops per flavor as thety will not mix scoops of less than 2. Well worth a stop.
Heaven on Earth-Azalea, oregon
A Christian truck stop with plate sized cinnamon rolls and other baked goods. The regular meals are not special but the baked goods are great.
The Wild Goose-Ashland, Or
Marionberry muffins and fried oysters are my favorites. An artsy truck stop cafe of fairly high quality in an artsy fun town.
Mt Shasta, California- There are anumber of places along the main drag that serve good exxpresso. Lots of new age vibe in town, unlike nearby Weed.
The Olive pit- Corning, California.
Sells olives and will ship anywhere. Free samples and worth stopping to see all the different olives available.
