I'm glad it's there...

With so many good reviews, and with a need for restaurant protein free of dead animals, I finally tried the Cornbread Cafe. It feels good inside, and there was a pleasing variety of people, from Mennonites to massed white dreads, hipsters to shrieking babies to elderly folks. I like the down-home... read more

Mac and Cheese, mashed taters and gravy, fried chick'n, corn bread.......who doesn't love this kind of food? But, you always feel bad about eating it. Right? Not when you go to Cornbread Cafe. It's all plant based and fabulous!

After a mildly disappointing stay in Portland, this is where we got our fix of hip/weird Oregon. After seeing it on the show "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" we go into Eugene asking my family there if it really lived up to the hype. They all agreed that my boyfriend and I needed to make a stop. So after touring U... 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.

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 atmosphere may put some off, but it's quite clean.... More

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
