Well worth the drive

The trip was well worth the drive. The house is historic and interesting to walk through. The staff was very nice and the food was awesome. The cinnamon roll is worth adding to the breakfast.

A wonderful variety of great food. They take their time in preparing everything. I was impressed with how fresh everything was and the dishes are beautifully served. A quiet out of the way place to go for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!!!

From the hostess, to the servers, to the management...all welcomed me and my husband warmly. The staff was very attentive and engaging. There recommendations were on point. The food was absolutely flavorful and fulfilling. I had the Pecan Crusted Chicken Breast, Blackberry Bourbon Glaze, Sweet Potato with Pecan Vanilla Butter and Collards and if I remember correctly, my husband had... More

We drove over from Salem to try this cafe. We were met promptly at the door and seated quickly. The sitting space is very small, so if there happens to be a noisy table you will hear everything. Probably not a good fit for small children. My mom had the rueben and I had the chicken curry sandwich on sourdough... More

One of the first things our server told us, as were gushing about what a beautiful home the restaurant occupies, is that the owner is burned out and is closing The Pink House within the year. And she flippantly told us she had already given her notice and didn't care in the slightest. So service was fine but not exactly...gracious.... More

My best friend has lived in Independence for many years, and she was excited to take me to The Pink House this past weekend as she knows I enjoy unique, independent restaurants with delicious food! The Pink House completely delivered on all these points. The space itself is charming, as was our server who had a great sense of humor.... More

Stopped by here on a road trip after reading the other Trip Advisor reviews--so glad I had the app on my phone. The menu offered just the kinds of things we wanted, sandwiches and salads, and we were very pleased with the freshness of the ingredients and the lovely preparations--my curried chicken salad came with an abundance of fresh fruit.

Found on TripAdvisor this is the best in Independence, OR, and I would agree! Small inside but they have a nice patio for warm weather. The food was very good and abundant. We had lunch there, and the service was friendly.

My husband and I had lunch at The Pink House Cafe. I had a grilled chicken Greek salad. The salad was very delicious in a balsamic dressing with feta. My husband had a Reuben sandwich with potato salad. The sandwich was quite large and he loved both it and the salad. Do not miss a chance to dine there.

Finally, we made it to the Pink House for dinner with another couple. We have had lunch for two there on a number of occasions. I had Salmon and salad. Other dishes included "one of the best Ruben sandwiches I ever had" and excellent chowder. The other two dishes I don't recall what they ate, but we ALL nodded in... More
