It took 35 minutes to get a table, but we were informed accordingly. But once we sat down, we ordered mimosas, a yummy chicken omelet special, and a meatloaf special. We also had potatoes O'brian and freshly made raisin toast. Everything was delicious! This is all from scratch, local farm food, and definitely worth waiting for! We will be back!

Stuffy servers but delicious food. Highly recommend the biscuits and gravy. Be ready to wait for it though.

Let me start with the waitstaff. They are all fabulous, we never had to look for someone to fill up a cup of coffee or bring a napkin. They were on top of it! The maitre 'd recited the specials from memory, and was very knowledgeable. I ordered the usual breakfast, 2 eggs over easy, obrien potatoes, bacon, toast and... More

walking around McMinnville recently we were looking for somewhere for brunch. We came upon Crescent Café and are really glad that we did. The feel is definitely casual with wood tables. The wait staff were really attentive. The portion sizes were generous and the food was fresh. The sausage patty is made in the café each day and was delicious.... More

Love downtown McMinnville, it is even better on a weekday with less people. Crescent cafe is on the main drag, and is very inviting, with nice wood tables and friendly staff. We started with banana cashew coffee cake...a very generous portion fresh from the oven. It was wonderful. Then we both had their handmade sausage, eggs, and hasbrowns. Very tasty,... More

This is a little gem on the main street of historic McMinnville. Fantastic breakfast, and servers were very attentive and friendly. The steelcut oatmeal was wonderful and very generous. My husband and our friend enjoyed their pancakes - blueberry and banana.

The food is really fresh ingrediants and they use bacon from Carlton Farms. The menu is basic so don't be expecting a alot of choices. We usually order the daily special and pick it up. It can easily take 45 mintues to get your food after you have called it in ahead of time. Also, on mothers day I tried... More

This place is only open for breakfast and lunch but they serve up high quality food and service. From the fresh-squeezed orange juice to the coffee and egg specials everything was tasty and fresh. Perhaps a tad pricey for breakfast but you definitely get what you pay for here.
