That’s the word that greets visitors to the La Maison website, and we’ve felt extraordinarily welcome each time we’ve visited for lunch or dinner. This Oregon Coast French restaurant is in the heart of Newport’s Deco District and features some of our favorite meals available anywhere on the Oregon Coast. Their award-winning team sources local and organically grown ingredients and eggs and produce, and even make their own home-baked bread. If you go there for breakfast, make sure to try the Peasant Omelet or Swedish Cured Salmon Benedict – we haven’t decided which we like best!
The best part of waking up, as they say, has something to do with a warm beverage and your mug of choice. One of our favorite places to go for a caffeinated coffee drink is Carl’s Coffee in Nye Beach.
Carl’s has great pastries, multiple flavors of iced tea to choose from and cucumber water for everyone. Specialties include their quiche of the day and Cuban sandwich, and coffee brewed using Stumptown beans.
Carl’s is the perfect place to go to warm up while waiting for the morning fog to burn off. If you’re lucky you can get a window seat to observe people scampering along the street outside.
Wilder Newport is home to the Wilder Disc Golf Course. Along with the opening of the new course came the formation of the Central Oregon Coast Disc Golf Club. If you find yourself in the Newport area and are eager to try out some disc golf, the COCDGC is a great resource.
Also, here’s a fantastic video showing just how magical this course really is:
