New Owners at Big Wave Café:  Opening Sunday March 21st – SAME Great Menu Featuring Fresh Ingredients from Local Farms, Fishers and Yes, Carol’s Desserts

“Why mess with a good thing?”  That’s exactly the philosophy of David and Jennifer Cleary, the new owners of the Big Wave Café in Manzanita.   The local community is anticipating the popular North Coast restaurant reopening on Sunday, March 21st.   The same great menu and specials will continue to feature the best ingredients, locally sourced, and served in ways that showcase the flavors of the foods.  And, Carol Williams’ desserts (she’s sharing her recipes with the new owners) will continue to be featured.

The Clearys moved to the Oregon coast about 15 years ago.  They took over the Local Grill & Scoop in Cannon Beach at that time.  “We have already learned a great deal from Brian, Carol and Sam and we plan to continue what they started and hopefully we will do it justice,” said David. “We’re excited to be in Manzanita, we love this town,” enthused Jennifer. “The people we have met so far have been super friendly.”

The Clearys’ plan to provide their customers with the same attention to ingredients, preparation and atmosphere cultivated by the Williams family.  As Chef Brian Williams said, “The food at the Big Wave Café is fresh, simple and prepared with respect. For me, food is about family, feelings and emotions, and so is the Big Wave Café … it is not just a restaurant. The Big Wave isn’t a place to get away – it’s a place to get together.”  Added David, “That’s exactly how we feel about this, too, and we are excited to continue to provide great food and enjoyable experiences.”
