Cozy Meals on the Coast

Dec 6, 2022 | Food & Drink, Uncategorized

Whether coming in from a beach hike around the tip of the Long Beach Peninsula at Leadbetter Point, wave watching at Cape Disappointment’s Waikiki Beach, bird watching at Tarlatt Slough, or a stroll on the Long Beach Boardwalk, a hot, satisfying meal is the nourishment you might be craving.

Here are a few ideas for warming up and refueling after a day outdoors:

Shelburne Pub

The Shelburne Hotel and Pub is easy to spot. The distinctive stained-glass windows are repurposed from a church in Morecambe, England, and date back to the 1800s. Gaze into the beautiful stained glass roses while sipping a cocktail and tucking into a savory meal. Tip: Try the Pub’s take on a Shepherd’s Pie. Slow down, eat, drink, and enjoy. 

The Depot Restaurant 

Inside a historic train depot lies a gem, The Depot Restaurant. The small, convivial restaurant offers an intimate and comfortable dining experience. Immerse yourself in history and delight in creative cuisine with fresh, local ingredients at The Depot Restaurant. 

Captain Bob’s Chowder

After a misty stroll on the boardwalk, might the comforting coastal meal be a steaming bowl of clam chowder? Many places include clam chowder on their menus. Captain Bob’s leads with it. Go to their FB page for daily specials. 

The Chowder Stop

Another great place for chowder, The Chowder Stop lies a few yards aways from the World’s Longest Beach sign at the Bolstad beach approach and is a convenient place to stop after a brisk walk on the beach. Dine in or pick up a hot bowl of steaming chowder to go..

Malai Thai Restaurant

What is more cozy than a hot bowl of Pad Thai? Featuring a blend of texture, color and taste reflecting exquisite Thai cuisine, harmony is the guiding principle behind each dish. Enjoy a taste of Thailand on the Long Beach Peninsula.

Loose Kaboose Diner 

From the outside, the Loose Kaboose Diner looks like it was pulled out of a classic movie. This red train caboose has been converted into a delicious dinner for the whole family. Enjoy hand battered fish n’ chips, burgers, and more at the Loose Kaboose Diner. 

42nd Street Cafe & Bistro

Looking for a delicious, warm, nostalgic breakfast place? Keep your eyes peeled for the yellow building with the red rooster. 42nd Street Cafe and Bistro has it all. Inviting staff, the smell of syrup and hot coffee, and delicious breakfast items. This cozy Cafe also offers American Bistro Dinners, with Craft Cocktails, beer, and wine.
