Sandy may be a small city in the foothills of Mt. Hood, but it has a lot to offer people looking for a delicious bite to eat. Here are some of the top places to eat in Sandy. 


Sweet or savory, crepes are a wonderful, if not tricky, little dish that delights the soul and the stomach.

3. Tollgate Inn Bakery

Need a quick stop to pick up supplies or some of the world's best blueberry muffins? Tollgate Inn Bakery. Looking for a few souvenirs while you're at it. Yup. Tollgate Inn. The design of the building harkens back to the early days of Oregon, complete with a covered wagon out front. The inside matches that vibe, as does the old fashioned hospitality and menu filled with delicious comfort food options. 

4. Joe's Donuts

Generations of families have been stopping at Joe's Donuts since 1974. No magic or colored stars are needed to make this a popular stop, just quality donuts that are as large as they are delicious. The owner actually started the business right out of high school and continues to make his world-renowned donuts the same was as he did on day one. When things are perfect, you don't change them. 

5. Boring Brewing

The name isn't some slight on the beer; Boring Brewing actually started as a small brewery in the community of Boring just down the road from Sandy. They relocated to a space at the entry to Sandy's main street district a few years ago. What didn't change was their commitment to delicious, handcrafted small batch beers. They're also a stop on the Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail.

6. Scooters Restaurant & Sports Bar

Scooters is a popular spot in Sandy's dining scene for their classic menu and sports viewing opportunities. Family owned and operated, Scooters focuses on fresh, local ingredients to make its American style food. Parents can enjoy a wide array of local and regional sports on the TVs while the kids are entertained in the playroom.
