After a long work week I was happy to find vegan comfort food at Cornbread Cafe; a nostalgic, quirky diner in Eugene. A repeat visit will be in order on my next trip out west!

My family ate here and throughly enjoyed the meal. While this is not light food, you will be full when you are done, it was very tasty. I had the BBQ Seitan, although not an elegant presentation, had just the right amount of chew and napped in BBQ sauce. My wife and son had the Chicken Fried Tempeh with Cashew... More

We eat here very often, there is not much we haven't tried. The biscuits are great. The cornbread, I don't order they are on the dry side, some people might like them but I prefer the biscuit. But that doesn't stop us from going there. Everything is good

The food was amazing! We both had Reuben's and wished we had shared one! The ju ju's were delish, as well as the cornbread muffin we shared! Walked out of there stuffed!!!

As someone who suffers from food allergies, I have just about given up on eating out and feeling safe, and enjoying my food. This place caters to folks like me. The chef really knows their way around vegan, gluten free cuisine. Save room for dessert. They have amazing gluten free choices.

Good and varied menu plus staff very informative about meals lots of good variety and lots on the plate you will not be hungry for some time. Also an out side seating area which they plan to cover soon but if sun out makes the food taste that much better. Three of us ate each a different meal all fantastic... More

We had the fries with the uncheese which my nonvegan 15 yrold ate and loved. I had the Ruben with mash potatoes. The Ruben sandwich was good but better the next day! The mash potatoes were a little bland. The water was served at room temp. Wierd? The service wasn't the best.

Great vegan food. Had the Ruben and phish phillet (with mash taters [super] and mac & cheese [ok] & cornbread [ok] ). Will try more dishes here on our next trip to Oregon.

Being a vegetarian, the norm is a few choices on even the most expansive of menus. So when the opportunity arises for an all vegan or vegetarian fare, I am usually there. I've been here twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner. Both times there has been too much on the menu I wanted to order. And both times... More
