Travel Spotlight: Sourdough Bakery

written by Anna Bird | photo by Talia Galvin

Winchester Bay is an unincorporated town in the middle of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area near Reedsport. If you find yourself there for an off-roading adventure or you are making the scenic 101 drive through the Southern Oregon Coast, you have to stop at Sourdough Bakery. What started out as an ice cream shop evolved into a sandwich shop where they made their own Old World-style sourdough bread. Now the bakery also sells homemade soups such as award-winning chowder, and sandwiches, coffee and espresso from the local Village Roastery, more than eighty microbrews, WindyBay Gourmet sauces and jams, and other locally made goods. You won’t regret it—unless you overindulge and jump on an ATV right after your visit.
