Such a small place with any type of burrito you can imagine such as the 'trash can' burrito. Basically you can get anything in the burrito you want, the ladies in the back customize each to your liking. It's just down the street from the...More

The Oasis has moved to a spot near the hotel in a strip of businesses. It has a good breakfast and great selection of coffee. It's small and quaint with very friendly staff.

Phoebe, the waitress, makes this place a fun place to frequent. Lots of locals, and great cafe food. Definitely recommend. We ate both breakfast and lunch here. Great burgers and pan-fried chicken fried steak!

My delight in finding this eatery, dedicated to morning through mid-day victuals was WONDERFUL! The prices were extremely reasonable for a varied enough menu to satisfy both my biketouring hunger and pocketbook. Waitress Sadie must surely be exhausted by the end of her shift—I’ve rarely...More

After 170 miles on the motorcycles, it was time for a break and a bite to eat. The Oasis Cafe was easy to spot--all the parking spots were taken. We had to park a block away. Once inside, we were treated to the best BLT...More

They open at 8am and close at 2pm as of October 2016. Great food. I wrote a fairly detailed review in October of this year. It is worth the stop. I arranged my travel to eat there on my way back home it was so good.
