This is THE place to have a great breakfast. Our party of four had different items and agreed they were fantastic. Our server was friendly and efficient. The homemade hash browns were amazing and our coffee cups were never empty. You gotta try this place!

If you want your basic bacon and eggs type breakfast, I'm not sure how you can do any better than this. I actually had patty sausage and eggs with hash browns. The hash browns were homemade and I'd guess the sausage was too. Over easy eggs were cooked perfectly (for me). I usually don't review a place based on one... More

This was a nice stop when we realized the other restaurant we wanted to go (Lord Bennett's) was closed for the season. It is your typical diner with diner food...which I really like! The service was a bit slow but the company was great. I recommend the Cranberry Crepes made with local cranberries from the Bandon bogs. Delightful!

We have eaten at the Minute cafe several times.The cafe has a welcoming atmosphere with good service, quality food and good prices. We will visit there again on our monthly visits to beautiful Bandon. The Sunset hotel also had a view in their new addition that was absolutely amazing!

This was our second stop here, once before last summer for breakfast, this time for lunch. The Minute Cafe sits right in the middle of the Bandon historic downtown and the aged building has a comfortable feels to it like. The staff is friendly and our service has always been really good. My hamburger was really good, our waitress said... More

Ate breakfast at the Minute on our last trip to Bandon. Very friendly service, great food, and just the right portions to start the day off.

This is a quintessential American diner with the kind of food you'd expect at such an establishment. It is also clearly the local favorite as residents almost always outnumber the tourists. You will get large portions of whatever you order and it will be good. Your coffee will be refilled quickly and you'll leave with a pretty small bill.

This particular morning when we decided to eat at the Minute Cafe, the place was packed. You can tell who the "locals" are, and there are always some in the place. But there were many out of town folks also in the cafe. The wait staff remained courteous and timely. Their menu is quite long, lots of good options, and... More
