On a recent getaway to Pacific City, Ore. (and yes, I highly recommend staying at the Inn at Cape Kiwanda), I discovered Stimulus Espresso. And I fell in love. It’s totally gluten/dairy/soy-free friendly! I also discovered what are now my fave whole foods bars – Betty Lou’s Just Great Stuff bars.
Be sure to order a decaf latte with your choice of milk alternative (I heart rice, but they also have oat!) – they use Stumptown beans – which everyone knows is the best! 😉 Then grab Betty Lou’s Just Great Stuff Organic Chocolate Dreams Green – it is amazingly yummy and gives you a shot of leafy greens, not to mention that it pairs perfectly with a latte.
For lunch, I ordered their Greek Salad with chicken breast and balsamic vinaigrette on the side. Delish does not do it justice! There are not many great eats on the Coast, and unfortunately the Pelican Pub’s food was disastrous the last two times I ate there, so Stimulus is definitely the place to eat.
In the meantime, be sure to pick up some of the Just Great Stuff whole food bars, which you can order online. They are pricey, but a great whole foods alternative.
