Moved here recently and passed this place many times. Finally decided to stop on our way to Salem and check it out for lunch about 11:45 AM. This is not fine dining but a decent meal. My wife had the fish sandwich and clam chowder. She was born and raised on the coast of Southern California and loves Clam chowder.... More

So here's the scoop on Cafe 22. The food is just so so. Some things are pretty good, others just okay. They have a decent menu Monday - Saturday, but a very limited menu on Sunday. Not sure why that is. On a scale of 1 - 10 I'd give the food about a five or six. Outdoor seating is... More

On our way to Pacific City on July 19, we stopped in for breakfast at the Café 22. We sat outside on a stunningly sunny perfect Oregon morning. A view of the tractor and the surrounding agri-land greehouses was just right. Service was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was just good ol' country cooking. We are kind of snobs about...

Me and my friend ate there, they had rude customer service. I overheard a gentleman saying he was the owner cussing and being very rude to another customer about their meal. The couple was being very polite. It was pathetic. Our food was cold and tasted bad! We didn't even bother complaining as we could see what was going to... More

Way better than any other waffle in Salem. Period. And less expensive than most. They also have marion berry and strawberry, but the peaches were fresh from their on orchards. Yum, and their Bacon is pretty awesome too.

Excellent Lunch! We where going to the fruit stand next door and decided to have lunch. Very good decision. The atmosphere of a roadside diner was superb! Lots of choices on the menu, after looking I went with the FootLong Chili Dog and my wife went with 1/2 Ham sandwich. Both were very good, but my footlong was about 15"... More

I've been here several times. The food is usually better. I'm tired of being served reheated food. Today the food was cold, bland, and heavy. Service wasn't great either. I had buyers remorse and I don't think I'll be back. Next time I will rather wait in a long line for Word of Mouth Bistro. They seemed to be the... More

We have been eating here for a few years now. Normally lunch is a great time to go. When the weather is nice, you can eat outside while seated under the umbrellas. Service is always good and food is great for a little cafe. They make their own soup daily and is alway good and hot. If you like hot... More

We often stop at Café 22 on our way home from our beach condo, as it is usually lunch h time by the time we get near this place. We started going there about two years ago. They have a staff that is knowledgeable about gluten and offer a great bun less hamburger that is always very good. I would... More
