Delicious and affordable

Very good food, trendy little twists to traditional breakfasts. Be prepared to wait if all of your party isn't there at the same time, you won't get seated. Small, cozy little place and a must try cafe.

We went here based on reviews and recommendations from locals, but it wasn't all we had hoped. We did have a larger party for this small cafe but they were able to seat us after a moderate wait which was nice. The "special" of the day was said to be bland for the others at our table, and it seemed... More

I just love coming to McMinnville and trying out the little restaurants. This place was highly recommended, so I brought my in laws. We were greeted very friendly and seated right away, the waiter was amazing and explained everything very good. We took a while to decide, I think it was the owner who came to our table to help...

We hit the Crescent Cafe about once every 3-4 months. It's our 'special' meal place. We don't want to go too often and make it boring. They are only open breakfast and lunch hours, so no dinner, but they have the most amazing and creative chef! I have had the privilege of catching their biscuits and pork gravy a couple... More

It felt like they were trying to turn a breakfast and lunch cafe into an upscale restaurant and it didn't quite work. The food was good but not that great. It also seemed a little expensive for what it was. The bread that came with homemade soup seemed like plain white bread. The salad that came with other meals was... More

Crescent Cafe was referred to us by many locals. We were so glad we went. It is a small restaurant with about 11 tables. The staff is so friendly and out-going. The decor is absolutely charming and decorated warmly, kind of Arts and Crafts style. The menu is small but, mighty. They had a few omelette/scramble dishes, that sounded excellent.... More

Loved this little place! While it doesn't look like much from the street and it's small inside, the food was phenomenal and the service excellent. Our meals came quickly. The soup was tasty and full of chicken and vegetables. Salads were tasty and filling. And that mac and cheese should come with a warning label - large portion and you... More

We had high expectations of Crescent Cafe based on reviews, and we were not disappointed. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner, and seated - he also went over the menu and advised our server would be over shortly. The menu is small, but creative and seasonal, including several varieties of house-baked breads. Our server was very friendly... More

I absolutely love Crescent Cafe!! The food is delicious, always fresh and made to order. There is a wait since most things are not pre-made - always worth it. All fruits and vegetables are in season.

My girlfriend and I stopped here for breakfast over Thanksgiving break while in McMinnville and had one of the best breakfasts that we have had in a long time. The service was great and we felt taken care of throughout the meal. I had the chicken gravy and biscuits and we shared a caramelised banana pancake, which was incredible. The... More
