Not just for Vegans

I've been here three times (two lunches and one dinner) all were very good. Creative vegan food that any meat eater can love, and the best tofu (Eugenewich) I've ever experienced. Be aware, this is comfort food, not necessarily health food and many items are calorie laden, but oh-so-good. Old diner... read more

Not my favorite vegan place in Eugene but their pancakes are some of the best Ive ever had, and the staff are super friendly as well.

My daughter goes to UO and we came here on our first visit to Eugene. I did not disappoint! If you are a vegan who likes to get your sandwich and fries fix once in a while, this is the place. Delicious vegan food from the Eugenewich--fried tofu sandwich with hay stack onions--to fried "fish" to "ribs." It's all good.... More

Looking for my bowl of oatmeal and was pleasantly surprised by the breakfast menu of eggless omelets and hemp breakfast sausages. Very pleased with service and atmosphere...price was comparable to average meal. The bathrooms are labeled 'anyone' so that confused me at first but then remembered I was in a college town. I'm glad we found it on a fluke-will... More

In a small former Deb's Cafe, the cooks at Cornbread (7th & Polk) deliver wholesome, delicious and unique vegan food in a 50s setting. At a recent dinner hour we chose from their build-you-own meal, with a protein hub and two sides. The big portobello mushroom with spinach and onions was most satisfying served with mashed potatoes and a rich... More

What a funky, trippy little time capsule with a vegan twist! My husband and I had dinner here on a recent visit and are so glad we did! I had a really good BBQ seitan sandwich and he had the fried (non)chicken with gravy and mashed potatoes. The jalapeño cornbread was excellent and we grabbed a wonderfully decadent chocolate-chip cookie... More

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...

Even carnivores love the Cornbread Cafe! Lots of choices if food allergies in an old dinner setting in a great, close in area of Eugene. Come by and see this Eugene unique eatery and have some comfort food.
