So very glad we found such a fantastic place for breakfast. Food was incredibly good. Love the bakery items as well and the thick slice of homemade wheat bread toast was perfect

Unique environment but needs a bit sprucing up (we entered through a door with a ripped screen hanging from it.) Service was pretty slow even though there were only a few customers. Food was OK.

We visited here while on a family vacation. It was wonderful! Rustic, brick building with plank floors. Eclectic menu items. Excellent food and service. Walk through the archway into a great bookstore loaded with used books and interesting and odd gift items. Spend some time here, it is country comfort!

We came when Busters was closed for construction and Backstage was slammed with customers. The staff was kind and very fast paced trying to get everyone taken care of. The food was great and the atmosphere was great. Awesome vibe through and through - we loved it!

Smashing hit with ten guests enjoying food and portion size was perfect! So many restaurants give huge portions and it doesn't help with Americas obesity problem, so yeah to a restaurant that's normal and adding to our health as Americans! Wonderful meals and you bet we told all our friends!!! Thank you for great customer service too!!!!

Oh, the food is good, but the new owners cut the portions in half on the salads. This used to be my "go to" place but it isn't any longer.

Apparently this large edifice, I think known as the Burkholder Woods Building, was recently restored and has a commanding presence on the corner. I ducked in only to check out "Kalapuya Books," which nestles up to the Backstage Bakery & Café adjacent, not to eat. Kalapuya is clearly a book-lover's shop with a thoughtful and surprisingly large selection of secondhand... More
