The go-to soup and salad restaurant in town. Affordable and tasty.

This is a great place to grab lunch with family and friends. Not open on Sunday. There is aways a special on the board on the way up the stairs. The menu is pretty fixed but offers and acceptable selection of soups, salads and sandwiches that can be arranged in combos of your liking. The food is... read more

It's not easy to find, must enter up the stairs thru another unrelated store. The four of us all found it very noisy; the service OK but slow, food over-rated and over priced

My son took me to lunch with my two grand-kids. My daughter-in-law had to work so she missed out on all our fun! The kids had eaten there before so they knew exactly what they wanted to eat. It was a stunning salad for me, along with some excellent bread and butter! YUM!

This was such a good lunch! The bread is thick and the best! We were served quickly even though they were busy. The workers were working hard and quick. Overall I highly recommend this restaurant for whatever the occasion. It's a cozy, warm environment that has fairly cheap prices.

Very good deli, delicious home made food. Bread is to die for and the best soup I have ever tasted. Personal best is Broccoli soup but runner up is loaded baked potatoe. Sandwiches are made on fresh made bread, wholesome and delicious!! Must try them all, favorite is BLTA=}

We stop here regularly for lunch. The food is great, especially the sandwiches and soups. The soups are actually one of the best I've ever had. They also have their own bread which is great to dip with the soups. The staff is really nice as well. Really worth every penny!

I eat at this place at least once a week. Cindy bought the restaurant a few years ago and kept it the same. Her children are the wait staff along with a few others. What I like is the excellent salads and soups and the service. It can be very busy and I still feel totally taken care of.

The Sage is the "go to" lunch spot in McMinnville. It is always very busy. The prices are good, and the food is good. It is not outstanding, but it is consistent. The beef and barley soup is my favorite. Oh, and the berry cobbler is very good as well. The salads are just OK, but everyone seems to love... More

We lunch at this family-owned restaurant at least once or twice a week - even though the menu is limited (excellent homemade soups, breads, salads, and sandwiches) - and have never had a bad experience in the two years that we've lived nearby. Try the beef barley, chicken noodle, fresh vegetable, cream of mushroom, or any of the others on... More

The Salads Sandwiches and Soup are always terrific and the house made bread is a wonderful treat. The location is in a mezzanine above La Bella Casa which is also worth a visit as you arrive or depart from The Sage. The restaurant can become a little crowded but is well worth the wait.
