The Oregon Coast is getting a lot of traffic this summer as folks inland take shorter trips for their vacations. Motels and campgrounds are filling up and some businesses are doing well, especially those that cater to both tourists and locals.
In Yachats, Cheese and Crackers has moved and expanded and is now located at 238 4th St., near the corner of Hwy. 101. They open daily at 8 am but are closed on Tuesdays. Phone number is 547-3123.
The shop offers a wide variety of local and international cheeses with a focus on cheeses made in the Northwest. As a bakery, they offer original recipe, house made crackers, fresh baked bread, and an ever changing selection of handmade pastries and cookies.
Owner Karen Moyer says the new location is â€œlight, airy and open, offering more seating in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere." She says the new kitchen space is much larger to allow more variety on the menu. Lunch items include homemade original recipe soups, individually crafted sandwiches, baked to order personal pizzas and locally grown green salads.
