      One big vote for Ecola Seafoods in Cannon Beach. Even though my wife and I were there off-season in late October we were blown away by how good this place was. We can personally vouch for the clam chowder, razor clams and the crab wrap but our guess is that there isn't a miss on the entire menu.
       
      Also, you can make a worthwhile stop at the Tillamook Creamery in (you guessed it) Tillamook, OR where you can take the factory tour and top your visit off with some of the creamery's fine ice cream.

        The Drift Inn in Yachats, Oregon
         
        I don't know if it's still there, but there was a bakery connected to a motel that had a windmill.  They had the absolute best marionberry scones.  It's right at one of the Roseburg exits.
         
        If in Bandon, buy some of the cranberry jelly candies.  YUM

            What is your route? Astoria to Brookings, or are you traveling inland at all on 199 or I 5?

              We bought the cranberry jelly candies in Bandon on mar52's recommendation, and they were delicious.
               
              But we found an even more outstanding place in Bandon: Coastal Mist. Lori had a great chocolate bombe, but the really outstanding treat we got was a cup of drinkable hot caramel with thick whipped cream that was completely rapturous.
              Coastal Mist is at 210 2nd Street SE, Bandon OR.

                  These are great suggestions, as I haven't been to the coast for probably 30 years.
                  We'll be travelling down 101 all the way; not going inland at all as we're time challanged to some extent.
                  Thanks for all of the suggestions.
                  How about some dinner ideas?
                  Thanks.

                    I returned from our trip and immediately got very busy. But I've started to report now: Ralph and Lori's West Coast Roadtrip

                      In the words of Smokey Robinson, I seond that emotion. Ecola is home to some of the best fish & chips (Halibut) I've ever had.

                        Isn't rather odd that MrSanRamon said quite plainly in his initial post that the route is HWY 101...yet some folks didn't pay attention and still asked which route would be taken...

                            Mrs  Chips and i have taken two trips recently on 101 so here are the my most recent recommendations:
                             
                            (!) Dory cove restaurant-Lincoln City, oregon
                            Good food, casual atmosphere.I like the chowder and seafood.
                            (2) Mo's restaurant-p- Get the chowder. Two locations in Newport, one in Lincoln City, one in Otter Rock, and one located over the Siuslaw River in Florence.
                            (3) Oyster loaf at the Shark restaurant. Other stuff  has been inconsistent but that has been good.
                            (4) Chowder at the Chowder bowl in the nye Beach section of Newport. Milky, sweet and wonderful.
                            (5) South Beach Market in South Beach just south of the Yaquina Bay Bridge across from the aquarium. The albacore tuna fish and chips was my favorite but all the fried  seafoods there have been good. very fresh fish.
                            (6) The Chalet house in newport has great pie with fresh ingredients. The rarely available triple berry pie is one of the best things I've ever eaten
                            (7) Green Salmon Coffeehouse in Yachats-A local coffee place where i had a machta tea smoothie which look like i was drinking moss but seemed healthy and balancing.
                            (8)Little Brown Hen Cafe-  Florence-A gem of a breakfast place. I loved the Contractors special which is a heap of fixings over toast.
                            (9)  Morgan's Country cafe-Great breakfasts
                             
                            Dinner can be difficult in some cities simply becaust it is often expensive and overpriced

                              yeah. odd.  Amazing stuff to try and double check someone's route, especially when I've lived here 25 years. Are you related to foodbme?
