Astoria Oregon - Breakfast and dinner recommendations
Good to get the upbeat reviews of the eateries in Astoria. I regularly, but too infrequently, travel through there and am impressed by the number and quality of your restaurants...Delighted to get the reports from the guys who eat there. Though it doesn't come anywhere near Sandy S's request, I would mention Andrew and Steves', unpretentious, stick-to-the-ribs sort of homecooking place, seems to be a bit of an institution. Always a good meal.
A question for the Astoria chowhounds: Last trip through, I was wandering around downtown looking for dinner and happened by a hole-in-the-wall sort of cafe offering Serbian cooking. It looked great and inviting, but it was a night they were closed so I missed it. Serbian? in Astoria? It's almost worth a trip back just to hear the story. What's it like? How's the cooking? What have you ordered?? Are they doing as well and is the food as good as I hope to hear??
Mostly to penche, though not really off topic, I'm wondering if you saw Drina Daisy, a Bosnian restaurant. They were not open the one day I was in Astoria, but you may want to read about them in a thread from 2009. I don't know about their wine list, Sandy S., but that thread may help you, too.

Definitely Blue Scorcher in Astoria for breakfast! The Bowpicker has excellent fish and chips but it is not a full service restaurant. I have reviews and photos of most of the places mentioned above on UrbanSpoon if you want to check them out. Bridgewater Bistro is very, very good and you will have gorgeous views of the Columbia River there. I would seriously not miss a meal at Clemente's in downtown Astoria, we have dined there several times. If you like Italian food, don't miss Fulio's, it's better than ever, we also dined there several times in the past few months. If you like Thai food at all, Blue Ocean totallly rocks, we celebrated my nephew's birthday there with our family, it's pretty amazing and we don't eat Thai food that much. Peter Pan Market also has really good baked goods, sandwiches and a nice deli. Enjoy! :)
