This place is definitely worth a visit. The service was great, local and friendly. The breakfast was awesome, corned beef has was homemade and delicious. Another plus is that they don't jack up the prices like other places in town just to get the tourist dollars, you get what you pay for. The mug collection on the wall is worth... More

Ate here two times on our two day visit to Bandon. This café is where the locals go for breakfast. The waitstaff couldn't be nicer. The food was very good as well, be sure to get the pancakes.

Went for breakfast at 7:30 this morning. Several workers were leaving for their jobs, so the place was about 1/3 full. I sat at the counter reminiscing about times when this was a typical diner. Any restaurant can be overwhelmed by a mealtime rush, but I experienceD only excellent service and a first rate breakfast served by cheerful staff in... More

We tried this place for breakfast. My husband ordered pigs in a blanket and a side of biscuits and gravy. I had oatmeal with a side of fruit. First of all, the portions are huge. Both of us had more than we could eat. (I was actually going to order a bowl of fruit, but the waitress warned me that... More

One problem is this place has no foyer so when you open the door and walk in, you are immediately surrounded by tables with very little place to stand or move around. This causes a "log jam" where people are trying to enter or leave the Restaurant. We patiently stood allowing people to also come or go. It was busy... More

Great food, friendly staff and always a local willing to help out with sightseeing ideas. Best Clam Chowder on Oregon Coast. Menu offers daily specials from sandwiches to steaks. Great seafood dishes also. My husband had Cheeseburger soup. It was so good he ordered some to go for later !

There wasn't an official hostess so we had to wait for someone to come out and find us a seat. We got there in the nick of time because it got backed up after us. There isn't really anywhere for people to wait for tables inside so people were hovering around us while we ate. The food was good and... More

We spent 5 days in Bandon and ate breakfast at the Minute Cafe every morning. It's a very casual setting, no frills. But the service is cheerful and the food is good. If you like starting your day with a big breakfast, this is a perfect choice. We ate everything from muffins to corned beef hash and always left satisfied.... More
