Tasty breakfast

Clean, great small-town atmosphere. It has been a while since I have been there. (Not on my last trip to Joseph in January 2015). But I remember having a very good veggie omelet that was like homemade. Twice I have been here and have forgotten that they don't take debit or credit cards only cash... read more

This small café serves breakfast and lunch. It is charming, with racks on the wall in each booth holding menus and reading glasses. They offer breakfast dishes, sandwiches, soups and salads--no greasy hamburgers here. My husband had a generous portion of sausage gravy and biscuits and I had a sausage, bean and kale soup. Both were very good and I... More

A tiny little restaurant with a great breakfast and excellent coffee. Has a cozy atmosphere on a rainy day. I had the veggie scramble which was very tasty. I liked that you could get half portions too- which was plenty. Innovative menu options too, with a Southwest/Mexican twist - nice touch. I was traveling solo and they were happy to... More

My wife and I were staying in a cabin at Wallowa Lake, and stopped in town for some breakfast. Great find with a great breakfast! I had the french toast, which was delish! My wife had the biscuits and gravy with a side of ham. The rosemary in the gravy was a tad overpowering but still very good. Oh, and... More

We had breakfast here on two consecutive days. We both had the same thing. I had oatmeal with bananas and brown sugar and a biscuit with very nice jam. My husband had the Santa Fe bowl. Both breakfasts were fresh, hot and delicious. The service was not very friendly or welcoming and I had to ask twice on both occasions... More

We ate breakfast here in the back patio. It was a cute place with a very friendly server. The half orders of biscuits and gravy and Swedish pancakes were the perfect serving size and both were very good. Great place!!

We sat in the courtyard and enjoyed a great breakfast. The service was prompt and we weren't rushed out of there. Thumbs up!

For good food & drink & a great outside seating area to see the world go by in Joseph, try the Old Town Cafe.

We ate breakfast here twice because it was so good the first time. Small, intimate - very reflective of Joseph. I had the best french toast ever and the coffee was strong and hot.
