Worth a try! Good food. Friendly, fun service.

This is a very small restaurant in Nelscott, near Lincoln City. My husband and I stopped by for lunch and were debating whether to have Mexican food or diner food (they share the same walkway during construction) when an employee of the restaurant talked us into their restaurant. He was... read more

Cute place but there was a sense of disorganization and tension (w/ the owner and our waitress who was new) and it was very loud. Kids breakfast was fine but ours did not come out right and sent it back but still was not correct after that. We also are not used to scrambled eggs piled on top of everything... More

Small place with great food and friendly service. New owners doing a great job. Not your chain type of place.

It was a bit early, but the owner opened for us anyway! So glad he did. Our first breakfast was so yummy, (and friendly) we made sure to stop again the next day. Had something totally different, but made superbly. Try the Almond Crunch French Toast if you are there only once, you won't be disappointed.

Breakfast at the Nelscott Cafe is a treat. Small, friendly and a little hard to get to right now because of the road work going on-but so worth it. My husband had biscuits and gravy and I had a delicious omelette with a homemade biscuit. Wonderful. There was enough to take half home but couldn't stop myself, I just finished... More

Hubby had a Monte Cristo that was the special of the day. The owner stated that it was going to go on the menu. Even though there's construction on Hwy. 101...go to this place! The owner was very nice and personable. Help this NEW owner keep his business going!

my wife and i randomly stumbled on this place. it is pretty small inside but have noticed that out here on the coast. we both ordered the biscuits and gravy. gravy was sort of bland and lacked flavor. my wife however did enjoy it. next time we will try something different on the menu.

Amazing breakfast. We had the Hawaiian omelet and added jalepenos with a side of the almond french toast. Great specialty coffees and very friendly service.

The food was good, but not super fabulous, except for the bacon. The Bacon was REALLY good! The French toast sampler was alright, I honestly liked the traditional one the best. It was pretty filling. The prices seemed a little high for a ma & pa shop. Maybe that's because it's the coast.

We finally ate at Nelscott Cafe after living in Lincoln City for a couple of years. I doubt we'll be back. The breakfast fine, but the service was lackadaisical. It was as if no one really cared we were there or if we were enjoying our meal. The food took quite a while, despite us being the only ones there,... More
