We're used to a healthier vegan selection - the jalapeno cornbread and chicken fried steak with cashew gravy were tasty, but we all had stomach aches after our meal. We won't visit again.

As a vegetarian growing up in Roseburg, Oregon, I had become accustom to very few menu options at restaurants. When I moved to Eugene I was surprised at all the vegetarian options at restaurants but I was BLOWN AWAY when I went to Cornbread Cafe. I have never been able to open a menu and pick anything to eat. It... More

This vegan diner in the middle of Eugene serves up some serious comfort food. Lots of deep fried stuff to keep your junk food cravings satiated. Most of the meals are based around either tofu, tempeh, seitan, or portobello mushroom. I would imagine that meat eaters could enjoy this place, but it is definitely aimed at vegans/vegetarians who want a... More

Stopped by the Cornbread Cafe on our way to Portland from Southern Oregon. My current diet is that of a gluten free vegan variety. Hard to eat while traveling. What a wonderful experience. Staff was lovely and very helpful. Food was wonderful. gluten free cornbread with jalapenos. Wow. I had the "fried chicken" Tempeh with gravy and mashed potatoes. Loved... More

This is my husband's favorite place to eat. It offers "vegan comfort food". Set in an old fashioned 50's diner style ambience. I'm always amused at the variety of people we see dining there. What I love best is that both hubby and I have dairy allergies, but at Cornbread Cafe we can order anything off the menu, including usually... More

Heading to a destination just south of Eugene, I chose this vegan restaurant as a stopping point for a Sunday brunch. Sunday's they serve breakfast all day. I was a little unsure looking at the restaurant from the outside. It's extremely dated. The inside played off the 70's vibe, keeping in line with the light fixtures, colors and kitschy wall... More

I don't understand what the fuss is about this place. I guess if you're vegan it is really nice to have someone cooking you some comfort food. I am not vegan, and found the service and food were rather mediocre. A hip vibe maybe but meh.. I went over 6 months ago and have no plans to return.

Cornbread I'd a real gem in Eugene. Vegan comfort food - make no mistake, the food is not light, but that's part of the charm. The Eugenewich and the BBQ sandwich are standouts, and the Mac Uncheese is tasty.

We are not vegetarians, or evan vegans, but we love the food at the Cornbread Cafe. We are a group of four, and we have gone back two weekends in a row. The Eugenewich sandwich with Ju Ju's potato wedges, and the Chicken Fried Tempeh with mashed potatoes and gravy (side), and cole slaw (side). are some of our favorites... More

Incredible place to eat. We made a several hour journey to visit and support this wonderful establishment. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The pricing was very reasonable given the portion sizes. I was really impressed with the on-tap kombucha and the poutine fries. The aroma of this diner was something incredible. One thing that really impressed me was... More
