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 told him he wasn't being very professional, he told me he didn't give a ###, he hung up on me three times. When I told him the Judge that signed the documents in question was going to hear... 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

We were on our way from the coast to Salem and happened by Cafe 22 on our way. What a nice surprise. Located in a rustic-looking building with old gas pumps and signage for decor, Cafe 22 was much more than we would have expected. --Outdoor patio dining, a nice menu with a lot of choices, very friendly servers, large...

We are from OH and have visited the Salem area for the past 5 years and restaurants are usually expensive and snooty feeling. Cafe22 is by far the best home style food we've found from the Atlantic to the Pacific. We just had one of the best breakfasts ever with perfectly cooked to order eggs, biscuits that weighed more than... More

The wife had the rueben with onion rings. The potato, green beans, onion rings, and salad were great. In fact... More

After calling one month in advance to arrange lunch for a group of 15, we arrived today and no one but the owner was expecting us. After waiting 30 minutes to get our drinks it was another 20 minutes before a different waitress took our food order. When the food finally arrived it was average at best. My burger was... More
