I am not vegan but this great place is good for anyone. It was a great find if you wNt to try something unique. It is comfort food, fried and creamy, but everything we had was delicious. It's definitely not Lo-cal. The atmosphere was good. Sit at the counter!

I have been here several times and am never disappointed. They have created vegan versions of southern comfort food, including "fish" fillets, mac and cheese, cornbread, bbq, cole slaw...... They also have vegan desserts, including occasionally a "fauxstess" cupcake, for those of you who miss that filling. The atmosphere is definitely "laid back" and local, which I enjoy. Servers are...

I've been away from Eugene for about five months and I still find myself dreaming of and hankering a Cornbread Cafe brunch. The food is SERIOUS comfort food and delicious. The staff is always amazing and friendly. It's super cute and this veggie girl misses it like crazy!

My wife and I are both veggie and like to try out veggie and vegan restaurants when we're in different cities. We were a little disappointed with both the food, the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff and the general customer service. Place was a little tatty too. Having my beer served in a pickling jar is a little quirky... More

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
