We were touring Oregon and on our way back to Eugene. Stopped off at Cottage Grove and thanks to AAA found this wonderful little place. The service is extremely friendly and the choice of food and drink is excellent. Our sandwiches were delicious.

Busy little cafe with excellent breakfast, good coffe, nice atmosphere. My poached eggs were perfectly cooked, which is a treat for me (I am very picky about my eggs!). We will definitely come back!

Stopped at Buster's while passing through Cottage Grove on Halloween Day. I see complaints about a wait time, but we arrived on Monday, mid-morning, so there was no wait. I cannot recall our server's name, but she was very friendly, and our meals turned out quickly. I had pancakes, and our table shared an enormous plate of hash browns; our... More

Located in the old Cottage Grove Hotel, the place is filled with memorabilia of Buster Keaton who starred in the movie "The General" filmed in Cottage Grove in the 1920's. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. It is small but worth the wait if you have to.

Long wait (45 min) for a burger, smokey, noisy. Wait staff nattentive. Expensive and just average food. If this is Cottage Grove's best, we won't be eating in cottage grove again.,

Busters is a quirky restaurant in the old Cottage Grove Hotel. It is often crowded, but there is a back room for overflow so don't assume there are no seats available. The back room is quieter, but can be a bit chilly as deliveries are made through an open door behind this space and a breeze sometimes comes in. They... More

We stopped by for lunch and shared a corned beef sandwich with potato salad. It's located in a vintage building with the main door opening into a hallway and small dining areas divided among rooms - kind of a strange layout. The food was quite good and service was pleasant. Nothing to rave about but it seems good enough to... More

I very much wanted to love this place. I found it using the Trip Advisor app on our travels home from Woodward Reservoir, CA. My boyfriend and I both wanted biscuits and gravy with coffee. Lo and behold, they had a B&G breakfast on their menu, complete with bacon and eggs! The coffee was good. The service was solid. The... More

The food is amazing!! And we'll worth the price! Don't go during peak hours though it's very busy and you could wait, and it's a very small restaurant so it's tight eating quarters when it's busy!

Always great food, creative specials and fantastic service. Love this place! Had ghost pepper rabbit sausage Benedict. Over the top. Open kitchen lets you watch the chef as he turns out one great plate after another. Will come every time I'm in town.
