A stripe of bright green skirts each LimeBerry's ceiling, leading patrons' eyes to a bank of stainless-steel dispensers framed in petite tiles. There, patrons fill paper cups with swirled ribbons of fro-yo flavors, such as rich chocolate truffle, tart wildberry, and creamy cake batter—up to 15 varieties in all. Confectionery caravans then move on to a toppings bar where they load on up to 80 choices of edible provisions, including warm fudge, fresh fruit, nuts, and marshmallow cream. Bright-green chairs host noshers beneath framed action shots of blueberries sticking triple backflips off a Yurchenko vault.
Latitude One whips up culinary chez d'oeuvres from fresh ingredients on a menu showcasing local and organic foods whenever possible. Guests can prep palates with a dozen steamed baby clams sautéed in white wine and garlic ($9.50) or grilled veronese crostini with taleggio cheese and caramelized onions ($8) before slaying fire-breathing appetites with the sword of a sicilian sweet pepper, fettuccine, sweet red peppers, and andouille sausage, ($15). Twelve ounces of NY strip steak garnished with mashed potatoes and vegetables ($16.95) mollify maddening munchies into ferociously adorable sleeping stomach puppies.
Frozation Nation gives its customers the power to have exactly what they want for dessert. Self-serve stations are stocked with 15 rotating flavors of frozen yogurt, ranging from classic milk chocolate to new york cheesecake to peppermint. Customers cap yogurt with their chosen blend of 101 toppings, including fresh berries, sprinkles, and syrups, before reclining in cushy leather chairs to devour their sweet creations and dream of someday building a fro-yo-dispensing helmet.
At Main Street Ice Cream Parlor, staff scoop 32 flavors of Cascade Glacier ice cream into waffle cones, sugar cones, or cake cones to satisfy sugar cravings. The ice cream can also be dished out to form the foundation of sundaes, shakes, brownie sundaes, and floats. Customers can also choose from the parlor's candy selections, which include gummy worms and taffy.
Bizznaga 303 Grill’s menu flaunts creative twists on classic American pub fare, including hand-formed gourmet burgers and hearty dinner plates. Like the archaeologists who unearthed King Tut’s walk-in refrigerator, lunchers who order the Charleston club sandwich can excavate crisp veggies and freshly sliced turkey, ham, and bacon ($7.95). Rivers of melted cheese erupt from the Volcano burger, bedecked in pineapple, jalapeño peppers, and bacon ($7.95), and grilled onions and chipotle ranch dressing crown the Southwest ranch burger ($7.95). Two sides, such as a baked potato and pepper slaw, accessorize hearty entrees such as citrus pepper salmon ($13.95) or parmesan-crusted pork chops ($10.95) without the stress of hand-knitting your own fork cozies.
When the chefs at The Bay House want some fresh italian parsley, french tarragon, or lemon thyme to season freshly caught halibut from Captain Mike Fitzpatrick or organic vegetables from nearby Barking Dog Farms, all they have to do is snip some from the herb garden outside. That dedication to fresh, local flavors elevates each dish, and it's also won the restaurant recognition from Oregon Coast Today and a bevvy of awards. To complement the seasonal dishes, which often feature seafood, duck, and beef, diners choose wine from a sprawling wine list that's about 70 pages long—the same length as War and Peace: Tiny Print Edition.
The Bay House's spacious windows let in views of Siletz Bay, which laps a rocky shore right outside the restaurant. In two formal dining rooms, servers whisk plates to white-draped tables and booths. The Bayside Lounge's plush dining chairs and leather couches gather around a rustic stone fireplace and tables topped with a single rose; the laid-back space sometimes hosts live blues artists and other musicians to serenade lounge-goers.
