Side Door Cafe: Don’t You Dare Miss This


We stumbled onto The Side Door Café on Yelp. We were looking for a place to eat on a recent trip to Salishan Lodge and wanted something really good but not snotty.

We read the amazing reviews of this place and decided to stop by and see what it looked like on Saturday morning. Man, are we glad we did.


It’s located in Gleneden Beach just down the road from the lodge. You walk inside and the pictures we post here will say it all.

We made a reservation and would not have had seat if we hadn’t done it early.


The food was over the top. Kathy had fish and I had a steak with crab on top. The bread was good, the desert awesome, the wine selection is very good and the service is the best.

We can’t say enough about this place. We did spend a little bit of money on the meal but when you go away for a romantic weekend why not?

If you are in the Lincoln City area this is a must stop. It’s nice but not snotty and you will enjoy the heck out of the evening.
