Best breakfast or lunch in Cottage Grove

Backstage easily serves the best food in Cottage Grove. Everything I've tried has been great, and I've tried most of the menu. The biscuits are delicious as is the Hungarian mushroom soup.

Cute little bakery that opens up into a restaurant with attached bookstore. The Hungarian mushroom soup was excellent with added dill and tomato. The chicken salad sandwich also unusual with apple, cranberry, celery in the chicken mixture & added tomato, lettuce, etc. Very good value.

This great restaurant is the perfect place to meet friends or read your paper over great food. The biscuits and gravy are phenomenal. The menu has indulgent and healthy choices.

It is not everyday you get a sandwich on homemade bread with homemade soup. And the bread was whole grain - healthy homemade clam chowder? Who does that? Really tasty lunch. Homey atmosphere and great service as well.

You won't get better oatmeal, or fried potatoes anywhere, than they have at Backstage. The potatoes have bits of peperoncini in them Quirky funky decor, all fun. Part of Axe and Fiddle Pub

The family was looking for a quick in-and-out lunch whilst traveling last week. We pulled into Cottage Grove, and down a side street was a sign for the Backstage Bakery. We went in with low expectations, but were BLOWN AWAY. I had some kind of grilled vegetable sandwich, which was tasty (even to a major carnivore!), healthy, and put a... More

For a great alternative to that fast food while traveling, try the Backstage Bakery in cute downtown Cottage Grove. It's convenient for north or southbound on I-5. Very homey with tables in an area that's shared by the Axe & Fiddle. No music during the day, and we've never stopped in during evening hours. The service is prompt; menu is... More

This restaurant is part bakery, part cafe and part bookstore, all plunked down in the southern Willamette Valley, on a side street is a small town. The food is good, served in moderate portions. The only real downside was the flies in the dining area, which were a true distraction. I got a bagel to go and that was a... More

A gem and backed up to the Axe & Fiddle. The two share the same dining area and are open to the funky bookstore next door. This place really seems like it would be a better fit for Eugene than Cottage Grove. We stumbled across it by accident and are glad we did. The kitchen is small and menu is... More

Me mother and I happened by chance to stop off in Cottage Grove in search of lunch and stumbled upon this great little cafe. Locally and family owned, friendly folks and great/speedy service. I am writing my review before I have even tried their food, but I am going to trust that it is good eats. So... Overall I am... More
