Pastry Royalty: Cannon Beach Bakery

Cannon Beach Bakery is sure to please pastry connoisseurs, with the largest selection of sweet and savory doughs in the area. They’ve been perfecting their recipes since 1936 when the bakery opened in Cannon Beach. Home of the original Haystack bread—a round, crusty loaf with different flavors—the bakery is also known for its win in the Sweetest Bakery in America contest. 

Besides Haystack bread, they offer 50+ goods daily: including almond bear claws, olive ciabatta, chocolate cream cheese muffins, and more. After you pick your pastry, grab a classic drip coffee, espresso, americano, or other classic coffee drink. 

Gluten-Free Options Galore: Sea Level Bakery + Coffee 

Another great Cannon Beach bakery is Sea Level Bakery + Coffee, where you can find different coffees at the pour-over bar weekly. We highly recommend pairing them with daily made-from-scratch pastries like banana bread, kouign-amanns, scones, and bread like baguettes, ciabatta, brioche, and more. We never turn down carbs with our morning coffee.

Since savory items like pumpkin curry soup and ratatouille are available too, Sea Level is a great Cannon Beach cafe to stop by for lunch as well. 

Want to stay within walking distance or a quick drive from Sea Level? Stay at the Seven Spruce for a quick commute to silence your growling stomach. During your stay with us, we recommend that you have a beach picnic by stopping by Sea Level for some goodies on your way there. Munching on their jambon and brie sandwich makes for a delicious and delightful afternoon lounging on the sand.  

Cozy Ambiance and Community: Insomnia Roasters

Insomnia Roasters focuses on creating inviting spaces in each of their cafes, and their coffee and pastry selections are just as thoughtful. Signature drinks like eggnog lattes and baked goods like cinnamon rolls will brighten your mood in the already window-filled, airy space. 

Looking to read a book and escape from the world for a few hours? Our vacation rental Puffin Nest is walking distance from this cafe, from the beach, and from downtown Cannon Beach. It’s the perfect escape while still offering a roomy retreat for you and your group.

King of Coffee: Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters 

Sleepy Monk Roaster’s extensive roster of international, organic, and small-batch coffee provides dozens of options for your jolt of java juice. Ranging from French Roast Colombian, Dark Uganda, Gaelic Grounds, Bali Blue Moon, and so much more, you could live here for months and have not tried every roast. Don’t forget to taste their signature whipped cream.  

Plus, if you arrive early, you can get your hands on some gluten-free baked goods, and an Adirondack chair on the lawn to people-watch along Hemlock Street.
