The best place in Bandon for breakfast

The Minute Cafe is a friendly restaurant that is very casual. The breakfasts are like Mom used to fix. Go hungry because they don't skimp on the helpings. The staff always makes you feel right at home.

Very friendly servers that will take you back to visions of I Love Lucy! No wine or beer, but the fish basket is good. Basic old time American food.

This restaurant was recommended by our motel, and it turned out to be the best dining experience of the lot. Our waitress, Lynda, welcomed us and made us feel at home. I had the petite chicken fried steak with hash browns (fresh), eggs & biscuit/gravy. The gravy was great. Very good food, excellent service, and a reasonable price. For your... More

Went here with my daughter for Mothers Day. It was busy, but our food was cold when it arrived to our table. The wait staff was nice but not in a hurry to take our order. The price is about average. I would not go here again. Food was not tasty.

This little place has a diner feel, a sweet waitress, and serves a terrific breakfast. I was surprised to see that breakfast came with a choice of potato, pancake, etc., AND grits! Well, I had the grits and they were so good. Eggs cooked just the way I like them, good crisp bacon, toast, and limitless coffee. Oh, yeah. This... More

Normally we stop here in July and it's packed, so we never tried it. Motel staff suggested it and gave spot on directions. Waiter was frequently around with coffee refills. Coffee shop atmosphere, reasonable pricing, close parking.

We had breakfast on a Monday, so service was quick, no waiting and the diner was filled with locals chatting across tables. The food was traditional breakfast choices. We especially enjoyed the great quality bacon and sausage. The portions are large.

The food was not good and was barely warm. The waitress needs to work on her people skills. We will not go back.

The Minute Cafe is a quintessential small town diner, coffee mugs on the wall and all. It's the perfect place for breakfast if you want a diner feel. Food is good, portions are large.

We took food home as there was so much served. However, the crepes were undercooked and too thick, but re-heated nicely. The shrimp omelette was one of the freshest tasting dishes I have ever eaten, also good rewarmed. Pricing was average; service good; local hangout with locals regaling stories while waiting for the rain to clear.
