They serve breakfast all day. Except they stop making pancakes and french toast by 11:30. They were kind enough to make me a blueberry pancake even though it was very close to that time when we ordered.

Breakfast at the Minute Cafe, 145 2nd St SE, Bandon, OR. The Old Town favorite a real traditional local's cafe where everyone gathers for breakfast at early light. Also where outsiders are welcome. We have eaten here on several occasions on past visits to Bandon, it is always the same and always good. The wall behind the counter has a... More

This place was packed with what looked like locals when we arrived in Bandon one afternoon, so we made sure to visit the following day. It didn't disappoint. Delicious, tasty, breakfast--not healthy, of course, with cheese and bacon, etc., but there were some healthy options;-)

Our hotel suggested it was the best breakfast in town. Not so. We had omelets that were rubbery and tough. The coffee was bitter. The place was dirty and outdated. The next morning I had the same Mexican omlet at at the Train Station Cafe and it was very good. I don't see myself returning to The Minute Cafe.

Minute Cafe was recommended by staff at our motel. It's larger than it looks from the street, and gets pretty crowded, so get there early. The staff was friendly (though a bit territorial). The food was on the greasy side.

The Minute has very good breakfasts and lunches. Apple crepes were my favorite. A bit crowded but speaks to the taste of the food.

BE PATIENT!!!! If you are in a hurry or really hungry, find somewhere else. Not sure why they call it Minute Café--anything but........food decent, servers are a bit aloof, but good food and fresh!!!! Quaint little town to kill time and shop......

We arrived before the bay had gotten busy for the morning. Plenty of seating available. Very slow getting greeted then coffee and water took quite sometime to be delivered. Probably one of the worst Denver omelets I have ever eaten. It appeared to have been browned on a grill and picked up most of the flavors of what had been... More

Came here for breakfast. There are about 12 specials - many served with coffee. I had the french toast, egg, bacon and coffee special. It was a great value. My husband had an omelette with hashbrowns, toast and also coffee. His was good and a large portion. We'd come back if we're in the area for breakfast.
