Holy Cow!

The wife and I decided to eat our first breakfast there as it was within walking distance of our rental. The café is small but the food was really, really, good. I ordered the Poppers and the wife ordered waffles coated in crunchy almonds. Well worth the money spent.

The four of us sat upstairs in this quaint cafe. We all enjoyed our breakfasts. There is no view of the ocean, but the food was delicious and plentiful. We will definitely go back!

Super friendly staff, amazing food! Our pooch absolutely loved it, our server even made sure to greet him! Our lil pup cannot hear, when we told our server he actually got down on his level, it was wonderful! Prices were very fair, it was only $3.95 for a 4oz chicken breast for our fur baby, so good he even ate... More

Let me start by saying I'm a Southern Girl, from the deep South that lives for my summers to the Oregon Coast. Most beautiful country in the world! While on the Or Coast this summer I planned out a 7 mile hike from North end of Lincoln City to South end along the beach for a hike/photography afternoon. We had... More

Had a great late breakfast at Nelscott's. Had their signature dish with and egg on it and it was excellent. I am a sausage gravy snob, and the family recipe they have had for over 35 years is solid and delicios!!

My husbands meal came out 20 minutes after we arrived and then mine 10 minutes later. They had extreme difficulty understanding that he had ordered 2 items from the sides menu even though he explained it a few times. I ordered the poppers which were deep fried dough with pretty good gravy, the eggs are in there but couldn't find... More

This place had phenomenal food. I had the poppers for breakfast and OMG! They were delicious! I can't wait to go back on our next trip. The owner was working and kept apologizing for the wait (it's a smaller joint). Very friendly staff too! The only complaint I had was the bathroom was incredibly tiny; I could hardly fit and...

We were looking for a place that would welcome our dog and we found it at Nelscott Cafe. It's a cute little cafe and they are very welcoming of dogs. In fact they had some great little organic dog treats that they gave to us and our pooch loved them. The cafe has a cozy little patio to the side... More

Always good with substantial servings at a reasonable price. Big Wipeout is a favorite with fried chicken breasts over biscuits and their special gravy which won't make you sick, no fatty stuff in it and it is Tasty. Also omelets are all great. Wonderful friendly owners and wait staff. Am going there this morning!!!!
