In Pacific City there are few places to get a decent espresso. For years I have run into the drive-thru at Grateful Bread to get coffee for Carrie and I when we were out here camping, but we have never taken the time to go in and eat a full meal. We corrected that oversight today, and I couldn't be any happier with the results.
The menu features many options for breakfast and lunch, all tending toward the lighter side calorie wise, but the flavor profiles are exceptional. First and foremost this is a bakery though, and the giant pastries and wonderful whole grain breads take center stage when you walk through the door.
I went with their signature breakfast, the "grateful huevos". Eggs scrambled with jalapeño peppers and cheese, wrapped in corn tortillas, and served with scratch made black beans.
The flavors were exceptional, and the eggs were cooked just right (light and fluffy without being runny). The beans were a great compliment, adding a nice zip.
If you find yourself in the area before 3pm, stop in and give this piece of Fat Boy Heaven a try.
