Love this small cafe that only serves breakfast and lunch. We eat there whenever we are in McMinnville They are now open every day of the week. The staff is wonderfully knowledgeable about ingredients and very attentive. The best eggs Benedict I ever had was at the Crescent Cafe. They only serve it as a special from time to time... More

A server at Eola Hills tasting room recommended The Crescent Cafe. Not disappointed. We arrived about 10:45 on a Monday morning and were seated right away. The specials were explained thoroughly. The mimosa my husband had was excellent. I has ice tea and I always ask for an extra glass of ice. It came and for the first time, it... More

As advised, we went early and had a very short wait to get in. The breakfast was creative, well prepared and the service was great. The orange juice was the best I've had outside of Florida. I would give it 5 stars but my husband thought the corned beef hash was a bit chewy. I told him to order the... More

We love the Crescent! We go every Sunday, if we're in town. Ross usually orders pancakes: specialty or regular. I'm slightly more adventurous. We love the coffee, the freshly squeezed orange juice, the delicious bread (seriously love those biscuits!) and the wide variety of coffeecakes Danny prepares. The cinnamon rolls are not to be missed, even if you have to... More

I have been to Crescent Cafe at least 20 times in the past 4 years - all but 2 of those times I have enjoyed my meal. Last month I met a friend from St. Louis and her mother for breakfast - I brought them 12 cookies to eat while driving to Seattle. My friend started eating one of them... More

Enjoyed our delicious, well-made breakfasts of chicken hash and scrambled eggs with bacon. Her home fries were exceptional of their kind, long shreds of potato cooked to a perfect golden brown without adornments. The coffee was dark and strong. Service was friendly and competent. The room was pleasantly formal. The bill was big and fat. No reservations accepted we arrived... More

I went here with my mom for a little weekday lunch. I have to say the service was quite slow, but we really enjoyed our food, enough to want to try it again. We had the chicken salad sandwich which was very good, especially because of the homemade bread. I would have liked it to have a little more punch,... More

Had the Monte Cristo which was excellent. Wife wanted an omelette minus olives and ham, but they wouldn't change the menu and make her one. Overall good food.

Fresh flowers at every table, a warm & welcoming maître'd/owner, innovative & organic menu items plus homemade breads, all make this a gem of a restaurant. As visitors to McMinnville, we asked for recommendations and found ourselves at a real gem. Wish I could visit every week!
