Dine: Unusual Outposts

With hundreds of years of dynamic history, access to abundant ingredients, and endlessly creative community members, it’s no wonder that Astoria has its fair share of unusual outposts. Dive right into the unique charm by checking out these special spots. 


The Columbian Cafe & Theater and the Voodoo Room, all located at Marine and 11th, bring you live music, unique movies, fantastic breakfast & pizza. Funky decor reminiscent of New Orleans meets maritime fun. For another drink and a taste of a local’s perspective, hop over to the Worker’s Tavern right under the bridge in Uniontown. Lounge in the back patio and gaze directly up at the iconic bridge. Make sure to order a Yucca, you most likely won’t regret it. 


In Astoria, historic buildings meet contemporary cafes with style. The Blue Scorcher and Fort George Brewery are set in a historic automobile warehouse, which is set on the site of Fort Astoria. Factory windows frame the views as you enjoy local flavors. Blue Scorcher bakes phenomenal breads and pastries; Fort George is well-known for their tasty brews and pizza. Astoria Coffeehouse & Bistro, situated in the heart of town, is simultaneously a welcoming European style coffee shop, cozy diner, and stylish bar. Timeless decor fills the bright walls and ceilings; coffee and meals will wow you with fresh and unique flavors.
