They can be pretty busy in the morning, but the breakfast is worth the wait. Our favorite food there is probably the biscuits and gravy. Their food is always fresh and most things are local. The staff is friendly and attentive. Our favorite breakfast spot in McMinnville.

Always a treat to find a nice, casual breakfast café with a excellent menu, daily specials, and outstanding service. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast on 2 separate visits and will certainly return on a future date. Thanks Nora, for all of your hospitality and informative advice on McMinnville.

My spouse and I went for breakfast after seeing great reviews online. It seems to be a typical 'greasy spoon' style diner. The service was good, and the menu has plenty to choose from. The food was unremarkable. Not bad, but not particularly good. I'd requested an english muffin which arrived looking like a hockey puck, it was so badly... More

even though it is a small cafe, we had a very good breakfast here, very friendly server, and walked around the streets after, lovely morning here.

Been here a few times and have enjoyed it every time. Food has always been outstanding and the service has always been great. The price is right too. But don't be surprised if you are waiting in line for a table!

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.
