Great BBQ Dinner

This place is now serving dinner, and I had some great BBQ here. I chose the BBQ platter, and the meat was slipping from the bones, with great flavor. Potato salad was average, but the baked beans were excellent. Very large portions. Waitress was attentive and friendly. This was my first... read more

We loved this place, It doesn't look that great, But take my word for it. It is one of the best Barbeque"s in Oregon. The service was just great and the food is some of the best.

Lovely outdoor seating area in addition to indoor seating. The ribs were excellent and don't miss the fresh fruit desserts.

I have lived in Salem for over 40 years and gone to every breakfast place there is. If you want a good breakfast with good portions and flavor this is a very good choice. If you are looking for a superior belgian waffle this IS the place. Very light, and full of flavor. They have a duece breakfast with half... More

I continue to dine here - there is fun and good food to be had. There is indoor dining including counter seating, but the outdoor patio is great, umbrellas included. The restaurant is set back from Hwy 22, which is a busy road. I find that that doesn't really matter if you are there for a nice meal, sunshine -... More

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.
