Was excited to try the chowder & ice cream but saw loaves of unwrapped bread on the counter. The person at the counter didn’t seem to understand what Celiac was. When we asked about dedicated GF space we were told that they are a full kitchen and can’t guarantee that anything is entirely gluten free. Not worth the risk.

Really delicious chowder and ice cream (cow and dairy free). One of the owner’s friends has celiac, so they understand how to handle our needs. Definitely stop by here!

We had the NW Clam Chowder (SO GOOD...FULL of veggies & clams), the Smoked Oyster Chowder (also good, but the NW was better), Ruby Chocolate ice cream on a gf cone, and Vegan Cherry Chip on a gf cone (both incredible ice creams and delicious cones!).

We will definitely be back!

We stopped here on our way up to Astoria & are super glad we did. My son had the marshmallow ice cream & I had the veggie chowder which was delicious & my ice cream was delicious, I can't remember the flavor but it had elderflower in it. The honey lavender lemonade is outstanding. They have a covered deck out back that is dog friendly which is great for people traveling with their dogs.

This place is incredible! Amazing assortment of homemade ice cream, both regular and dairy free, and **gluten free cones**! They are also homemade and totally unique: crunchy, not too sweet, and perfectly complementary to the ice cream. What a treat! Chowder looked incredible and gets rave reviews too, also gluten free. This is a must stop on the Oregon Coast!!

Written up as one of the top 10 chowders in Oregon. Ice cream is gluten-free along with homemade ice cream cones that are gluten-free
