The Pine Cone Tavern in Brookings, Oregon

by John
(Portland, OR, USA)

We were heading south on Hwy 101 looking for a grocery store, because trying to find food for my girlfriend who is vegan is almost impossible on the Oregon Coast. We decided to stop for a beer at The Pine Cone Tavern...we walked in the door and it was like walking back in time. Old log walls, low lights,...but ordered our beer, but as we browsed the menu what did we find? Hummus Plate, Red Curry and Rice, Vegan Meatballs and sauerkraut, baked sweet potato fries ....There were meat filled recipes too, like the lumberjack, a meat and cheese plate, and cornbread crust pizza...but nothing on the menu was deep burgers and fries here. The food was excellent: fresh-made from local ingredients...and in good quantity. A gem on the coast....

The pine cone tavern has been under new ownership since November 2014 and is currently being remodeled/rebuilt. There was/is extensive rot so the current owner has opted to bring the establishment up to code as well as do all the necessary rebuilding to make it safe once again. Years and years of neglect as well as shotty repairs have taken their toll on the building. So stay tuned and visit the pine cone tavern Facebook page for updates.
