Our house, thankfully, has been booked most of the summer so we haven't had much time to visit and see the changes happening in Rockaway Beach lately. We finally visited our house a couple of weeks ago, and we found some significant changes in town.
First, the one thing that Rockaway Beach always seemed to be missing was a salt water taffy and candy store. Thankfully, that void has been filled with a new branch of the Cannon Beach favorite Picnic Basket Candy Store.
We've found three new places to eat in Rockaway Beach which is always great news in a small town like Rockway.
The Cow Belle Cafe has good country food. The biscuits and gravy is the best I've found on the coast (Grammy Lucys in Portland has the best in Oregon). The restaurant shares a kitchen with the saloon next door. If you are unaware, you may get startled by the divider opening as the saloon places an order.
Clara's smoke house has great smoked food. It isn't a restaurant per say, but you can't go wrong with their premium smoked salmon.
