My husband and I drove to Manzanita on this glorious sunny Mother's Day afternoon and stumbled upon the Terra Cotta Cafe. They were indeed a bit befuddled when we walked in, but the server regained his composure and showed us to a table. He recited a long list of menu items and sold us on a fine bottle of pino gris from Dundee, Oregon. We started with the stuffed mushrooms. They were perfectly done, not over-cooked and filled with creamy crab. I had the Waldorf salad and it was just like my mama's, served on a leaf of lettuce and on a decorative glass plate. My dinner was grilled skewered scallops on creamy polenta. It was divine, but not a big helping, so my husband took pity on me and shared his huge juicy perfectly done pork chop. For dessert I had a little peach pie warmed with vanilla ice cream. The pie was amazing and was made in the pie shop next door.  Everything about this little restaurant is homey and exquisite. Even the restroom was immaculate and tidy and decorated in perfect, unstated good taste. I can't wait to come back and try the steaks here.

Perhaps the server and hostess were a bit "hovering" but the restaurant is small and cozy and well, you are all nose to nose. We arrived just after 5 pm and it filled soon after 5:30. This is truly a little gem, on a long coastline of very tired and mediocre restaurants.  Sue W., Portland

"We have such a lovely time at Terra Cotta Cafe plus, Sandy and Harvey have become dear friends."   The Coverts, Manzanita
The service was outstanding -- everyone who served us in any capacity at the table was super friendly and accommodating. The food is as fresh as can be, everything is made to order just for you. The alfredo is out of this world. Good menu variety and EXCELLENT food, great tasting and well prepared. Conveniently located from several popular beach towns. I cannot imagine why anyone gave it less than at least 4 stars, unless they were blinded by The Pink -- it REALLY does need to be redecorated BADLY. I will definitely share this good review on other sites, and will definitely return! Katie G., Portland
