Favorite Vegan Friendly Restaurants in Cannon Beach

I have to admit when I first moved to the coast I was a bit sad that there weren’t more vegan and gluten-free options out here… especially when I moved from Portland, since that seems to be the vegan and gluten-free mecca. After being in Cannon Beach for 2 years I have come to love a few restaurants that accommodate my dietary needs.

First is Sweet Basils Cafe and Wine Bar… they not only have live music in the evenings, but an amazing gluten-free and vegan pizza that is out of this world! Especially if you ask for the pesto sauce on the pizza. They have the best selection of vegan and gluten-free in town.

Second is a new place in town: Fishes… I know it doesn’t sound too vegan friendly, but they do have some vegetarian rolls and veggie sushi. You just have to specify you are vegan so they don’t use the miso aioli. They have a spicy tempura vegetable roll that is amazing! (The tempura batter is made with rice flour)… and they even have tamari soy sauce, which doesn’t contain gluten!

Third is Bill’s Tavern: it is a little tricky if you want vegan and gluten-free, but you can order the hummus plate sans dairy and no pita (you still get lots of veggies and homemade hummus that is pretty good). Or if you are wanting just vegan than get the black bean burrito minus dairy + avocado + spinach and a really great meal.
