NOW OPEN SUNDAYS TOO, A LOVELY PLACE TO DAWDLE OVER COFFEE

I was out for a Sunday drive, checking out garage sales, etc., when I got hungry. I remembered a cafe on the frontage street of Canby, 1st Ave, just West of 99E, but I couldn't find it. I did the loop down the 6 blocks or so and found The Place To Be one more street to the West. A... read more

We go often as my young daughters like the drinks and the Mr Cheezy sandwich. Particularly nice when there is a local musician playing. Ownership seems to try to improve the place continually rather than rest on laurels. Many people lounge with a book or laptop and relax.

The Place to be is very comfortable and has a lot of great people from Canby spending their day at the coffee shop.

I ordered a strawberry lemonade and I'm not sure if there was a disconnect, but what I got was flavor packet version of lemonade. This was 4 dollars. We ordered lunch but I ordered a gluten free option which was not gluten free and got violently ill after. My wife liked her lunch. That's why they got the 3 stars

Love the hometown gathering atmosphere. The food is not that exceptional, but "Seven Brides" beer is worth the visit.

We had a very rich and delicious chocolate torta and chocolate eclair. Counter service person appeared bored and disinterested.

The Place To Be Cafe is a comfortable environment for a meeting, a quiet place to work and a nice place to relax with a friend. My son loves playing the big chess game. The drinks are delicious and the sandwiches, soups and sweet treats hit the spot. I especially enjoy that they have some gluten free options.

I like that it's local. The food is good, the service can be spotty, only because the have a lot of different people working. They serve all meals, often have music on Fridays-need to check, Everyone is friendly
