The West Coast is known for its jaw-dropping rocky beaches, influential indie musicians, and a plethora of trendsetting craft breweries. But travelers haven’t forgotten about one of the most enticing aspects of a well-deserved trip to the Pacific Northwest: the coffee. Coffee used to be a necessity, not a trendy midday interlude. Long before coffee was cool, roasters from all across Oregon were wowing locals with unique concoctions, classic renditions, and late-20th-century creations. Today, you don’t have to walk more than a block or two to find award-winning coffee in Astoria, Oregon. In fact, guests at Astoria Riverwalk Inn are always just a short drive, bicycle ride, or trolley shuttle from the three top-rated Astoria coffee shops (as seen below).
Unearthing the Tastiest Coffee in Astoria, Oregon
With over a dozen downtown cafes near Commercial Street, locating the most flavorful coffee in Astoria, Oregon, requires a lot of trial and error. However, we’ve proactively compiled our three favorite Astoria coffee shops. Each highly-praised cafe has a unique charm, distinctive flavors, and an abundance of tasty treats.
Naturally, this list begins with Coffee Girl’s million-dollar views. Patrons return time and time again to watch ships subtly trudge through the Columbia River en route to the Pacific Ocean while sipping on a frothy cup of joe. We couldn’t think of a better location to reflect on an already unforgettable trip to historic Clatsop County. Washington is visible from this former canning facility, even when it’s overcast. Coffee Girl remains the best place to enjoy a coffee in Astoria, Oregon, according to TripAdvisor. Savor a specialty latte (or the best hot chocolate in town) accompanied by a fresh-baked scone before exploring all that this beautiful region has to offer.
Street Fourteen Cafe
Street Fourteen Cafe proudly serves Stumptown Coffee, a 20-year-old roastery based in Portland, Oregon. The cafe is located in the heart of downtown, steps from Fort George Brewery, the Silver Salmon Grille, and Columbia River Bar Pilots. We love this coffee shop’s artistic flair, old-world charm, tasty lunch combos, and multi-talented baristas. But Street Fourteen’s seasonal lattes, nitro cold brew, and classic mocha are what drive repeat customers.
Blue Scorcher Bakery & Cafe
The aforementioned Fort George Brewery + Public House is attached to Blue Scorcher Bakery & Cafe, which is a massive plus for the afternoon coffee crowd. However, we recommend visiting in the morning hours as to not miss out on the fresh-baked bread. Yes, Blue Scorcher brews some of the yummiest black coffee in Astoria, Oregon, but it also doubles as the city’s best bakery. While the interior isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as Street Fourteen Cafe, the building’s exterior is a popular spot for selfies or group photos.
