Oh, the food is good, but the new owners cut the portions in half on the salads. This used to be my "go to" place but it isn't any longer.

Apparently this large edifice, I think known as the Burkholder Woods Building, was recently restored and has a commanding presence on the corner. I ducked in only to check out "Kalapuya Books," which nestles up to the Backstage Bakery & Café adjacent, not to eat. Kalapuya is clearly a book-lover's shop with a thoughtful and surprisingly large selection of secondhand... More

This cafe is located at the corner of 7th and Main in downtown Cottage Grove. It adjoins a small bookstore. The service is friendly and the food is good.

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.

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
