We moved to Wallowa recently and have been very grateful for the Blonde Strawberry -- excellent food, great prices, wonderful owner, friendly people. It's a treat to spend an hour or two, sipping coffee, chatting with long-time residents. Jay is a fabulous chef, likes to try new things, invent dishes that are so yummy. He's also charming and funny. We're... More

Stayed in hotel next door to The Blonde Strawberry. Enjoyed our breakfast and felt it lived up to the good reviews we had seen.

People head to Joseph, Oregon and probably drive by this cafe in Wallowa. You MUST stop. Very good food, freshly prepared. Good pastries all hand made. It is a must!

We enjoyed this little jewel of a coffee shop several times while spending the week in Wallowa. Both the house coffee and espresso were rich and flavorful. Breakfast was reasonably priced, especially if you go for the special of the day ($6.75 for 2 eggs, 2 bacon, toast & hashbrowns and coffee) and the pastries were delicious. Great place to... More

Stopped in for a cold drink and some AC near the end of a long ride. Comfortable space w tables inside and out, plus a little lounge area. The proprietor is attentive and entertaining, and gave us some info on the next section of the ride (narrow, winding and bad drivers...he was right). The pastries looked great but I was... More

The new guy at the Blonde Strawberry is hilarious! He once worked in a tavern and must have learned how to tease people there. They have a great breakfast and lunch menu, and plan to add some dinners. His plates of food look like they came from the best restaurant in a larger city.

If you find yourself driving toward the Northeastern most part of Oregon, just 45 miles East of LaGrande, Oregon on Hwy 82, you will want to stop and eat at The Blonde Strawberry. Food that is delicious and thoughtfully prepared with a chef's flair. Not something you'd expect from a roadside eatery through the tiny town of Wallowa. We enjoyed... More

I stayed at the Mingo Motel just behind The Blonde Strawberry. The owner takes pride in what he does: service, food presentation, coffee and espresso, and the overall cleanliness and appearance of his place. If you are served by this fellow bring your sense of humor. Prices are low as well. I will come here again when I'm in town.

Very clean and comfortable. The espresso is as good as the "big boys". The service was polite and professional. The food is as good as you can get. It does have a limited menu, but what we had was prepared very well.
