I have visited The Place to Be Cafe twice, and I recommend it as a great little place to meet friends or just hang out for coffee and/or lunch. The coffee drinks are very good, and are within the price range of most coffee shops. The food is tasty also. The thing I like most about this place is that... More

I love the feeling of home this cafe brings to life. Located in the center of downtown Canby. You feel like you are sitting in the city's living room. Great drink options, gluten free options and adult beverages as well. There is no feeling of being rushed...it is a come as you are ~ stay as long as you wish... More

The staff are amazing..The location is great...The food is good. I would say the only negative is the price vs. portion. The sandwiches are a little on the high side especially for the amount of meat and toppings you get. I would go more often, but there are other places in town to get a sandwich with much more on...

Now two years young, this peaceful coffee shop offers live music from local talent, gaming accessories, food and drink. People come to mingle with friends and family, business associates, or those who are falling in love... at "The Place To Be." I am a regular, who likes to play cards, while drinking coffee and listening to music or just talking.... More

Great coffee and good lunches. Nice to have a local place that feels like a city hangout. Not enough of those in Canby!

Really good coffee, very friendly staff, very comfy counches and good munchies. A nice place to go in the mornings or if you are passing through Canby in the afternoon, but note it closes early - at 4 - Monday through Saturday and, super sadly, it's closed Sunday.

I did not have high expectations for this place given the dearth of quality dining choices in the area. Canby is a great small town, but the restaurants are generally boring and pretty generic, The coffee situation is even worse.......it seems no one knows how to make a decent cappuccino these days. Until now the only place for a reasonably... More
