The gourmet option for breakfast in town. Have eaten here several times and quality of ingredients is great and portions fair.

Delicious, filling breakfast! We had Chicken Hash and Fried Cornmeal. Both delicious. Eggs not quite to order and under seasoned, but the overall experience with the friendly service is definitely recommended.

Small downtown restaurant for "locals." We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was yummy (it's tough to mess up oatmeal). Good coffee, great service and a glassy street view.

Quaint little restaurant in the heart of downtown McMinnville. We had to wait approximately 15 minutes at 9:30 on Thursday morning, but we weren't in a hurry, so it was no trouble. We each ordered the two egg breakfast, which came with bacon, fresh hash browns and choice of homemade bread. The potatoes were cooked perfectly, slightly crisp outside and... More

What's going in my belly: Fried cornmeal, with cheddar and green onions, eggs over medium and homemade maple sourdough bread. Of course I'll be adding the homemade marionberry jam. 🎉 2 thumbs up.

We enjoyed a really lovely breakfast today. Everything ordered was delicious. The menu is creative, specials were great and all breads and baked goods are house made. We bought a loaf of bread to take home. Looking forward to going back soon.

We had a group of eight - all amazing cooks and total foodies. Every single person loved their food and we would definitely go back. Had to wait quite a while and the two ladies who were working were working hard to keep up. There was not a table big enough for all of us but they were cool about... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch while strolling through the downtown shops along 3rd St. The cafe had a nice ambiance with instrumental music playing in the background. I enjoyed the burger which had a mildly spicy pasilla pepper topping. My wife was pleased with the reuben sandwich.

So wanted to love this place. Read other great reviews. It's warm, cozy and staff was very friendly. Started with our "breakfast appetizer," the homemade banana chocolate chip coffee cake. It was a mile high and delicious! My husband ordered eggs over wth OBrien potatoes and I ordered crepes with a puréed carmelized apple and pecan sauce. The presentation was... More
