Great Little Breakfast Spot

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

Food was not even average quality. I had biscuits and gravy. The biscuits were still doey and the gravy had the occasional night of flower from not being mixed properly. My daughters French toast was barely average; hard from setting under the light too long. Worst was the waitress who took my plate while fork is in hand a couple... More

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
