Nice!

This was our first visit since the new owners. Everyone was super nice and very attentive. Breakfast was great. I had the biscuits and gravy with bacon crumbles......Yum! Will absolutely visit again.

The new owners are wonderful! Very attentive and kind. Food is excellent as usual. Limited seating, however if your looking for a small diner feel, than it's perfect! Not many places on the coast serve diner style food, so I am thankful for this place!

This was our first visit to this very charming cafe. It is small but you definitely get that "home feel". The food was wonderful, I had the Big Wipe Out and my wife the French Toast Sampler, the portions were more than enough to satisfy. The new owners were very friendly and attentive to the "full house" of customers, even... More

We come here pretty often, and this last time was horrible. They got new owners and they have no idea what they are doing. Food was on the neutral side. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either. Service sucked! Its too bad to see this place like this. Most likely we are not going back.

My granddaughter read the reviews on the café and said it was one of the best in Lincoln City, so we decided to try it! We were not impressed. We were seated upstairs-very stuffy-no ventilation. The service was adequate, but not real friendly. Our meals were okay-not great-maybe it was just a bad day for the restaurant. But I probably... More

I tried the Almond Crunch French Toast with Patty Sausage, it was Great, I wish I could make it myself. Steve tried the biscuit and gravy with bacon and was very pleased also. The Cafe is in the little Santa section next to an excellent Mexican restaurant (La Roca) Cozy yet has an upstairs and outdoor section also.

Our best meal in Lincoln City! The best pancakes we've ever had. The French toast sampler was very good. Eggs cooked perfectly. Great service and they even gave us a couple of cookies along with our check.

At first when I saw the ratings for this restaurant I thought "I have to try this place". After we had our first meal there I was thinking "When can I come back!" They have unique items such as Scotch Eggs and homemade crumpets. Delish! There is no place on the entire Oregon Coast quite like it. This place will... More
