We had hamburgers at The 101 Burger and here and this was cheaper and better! The breakfast was also our favorite. The French Toast sampler was really good! I loved that I didn't have to choose only one kind! This place has great food at a very good price. Also the atmosphere is very warm and friendly and the service... More

We enjoyed our brunch at this quaint cafe. The 3-egg omelet and the almond crunch french toast were hearty and delicious. The service was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The price was all right. Our bill averaged out to around $13 per person.

My friend and I came here for lunch on our way out of Lincoln City on a Sunday. The small cafe wasn't crowded, but had very little seating. Our waitress greated us promptly and gave us the time we needed to look over the menu. The menu is small and only breakfast and lunch are served (with breakfast being served... More

The wife and I ate breakfast here on Saturday May 24, 2014. The wife had a "breakfast bowl" and I had the "breakfast poppers". We came here based on the reviews of other travelers but I hate to admit that we really weren't that impressed. The place was clean, the staff was friendly, the service was fast, the prices were...

We started out going to another place but it ended up being closed. Nelscott is very small but kinda cute inside. The food was very good. Make sure you get their Texas toast. Better than French toast! We started craving it after we left. Service is also very good. After breakfast go into the Christmas store two doors down. It's... More

Great breakfast, try the almond crunch french toast! Also had the standard bacon & eggs. Friendly, attentive staff. Reasonably priced.

Went here for breakfast. The food was pretty good and the service was good also. The waitress was attentive and didn't charge me for the coffee I didn't end up liking. Our hotel made it sound more remarkable than it was, but it was still good breakfast food and service.

So my wife and I came here on Sunday Morning the 6th of April for breakfast. She had the basic eggs and bacon, I had the stuffed French toast with sausage patty. Now my wife's bacon was cooked till it was literally dead! I mean, is was hard as a rock, and almost inedible. I have never seen bacon served... More

Thank you for your review. I'll have to agree that Sunday the 6th wasn't our best day. We were much busier that expected and were short staffed. There's no excuse for you getting served sub par food however. I can only ask that if you're in our area again that you contact me, Don Williams, and I will happily treat... More

Well, the food was good, but nothing to write home about. I chose this restaurant based on the gushing reviews on TripAdvisor. I honestly don't get the hype. It's a cute little restaurant and the food is ok (I had the three egg omelet and country potatoes), but it's not spectacular in anyway. My partner said that the coffee was... More
