Our first visit! Definitely not our last!

I'd go back based on the service alone! You could see the staff were enjoying themselves, working as a team to make sure the customer was having a great experience. Let's get to the food.

My wife and I had a Greek-style chicken sandwich with a cup of chicken soup. The menu did look interesting. However, the soup was flavorless except for the overwhelming saltiness. Also, the chicken in the sandwich was all dry dark meat with gristle. Not well executed. They may have other good things on the menu but we probably won't be... More

We had a small trickling in group of 8, and were treated with lots of happy faces and warm welcomes. There was a breakfast special each time we were there, both very good. I personally don't care for scrambled eggs unless I fix them myself. Should have remember that, they were a bit dry. The omelettes looked great. Coffee always... More

Crescent Café's positive reviews are spot on. It is the type of breakfast place you wish you had stashed away in your mental rolodex in every city you visit. Service is attentive, the menu offers many varieties of breakfast offerings, portions are generous and prices fair. There are no reservations but the experience and fare are worth the wait if...

We discovered the Crescent Café while spending a few days visiting wineries in the area. They open early (6am) which is very useful for early start mornings, have a very good selection of breakfast items and provide very good service. The kitchen was happy to make adjustments as requested to our meal selection and the waitress juggled numerous clients very... More

There is always a weekend wait so try this on a weekday or for late breakfast. Good home style meals. Original chef Danny created a wonderful menu and new owners have carried that tradition forward. Always a winner!

Love this cafe. Michael, the owner is so great! I was on a really strict diet for health purposes and he went above and beyond to make sure something delicious was made for me. Omelets are amazing. Everything is really fresh and high quality. Good atmosphere too. Very lively.

With all the choices in McMinnville, we chose to eat breakfast here twice. On the first morning we meet the delightful owner Nora. Or food was very good and the service was over the top. We never felt rushed and we took our time. The bread selection is extensive so over the two breakfasts we sampled many of them. The... More

Down to earth, family friendly. Good prices and excellent food. An unique atmosphere that is open and friendly. I love that they bake their own bread. You will not be disappointed.

One of the best breakfasts we've had. Three different kinds of homemade bread--- holy yum. The staff was so kind and on top of it. Recommend x100000000.
