Our family celebrated a grand-daughter's passing her RN exam with a breakfast at a place of her choosing. Although I had never eaten here before, www.sassyonion.com was a helpful introduction to what could be expected. While Breakfast is served from 6-11 am, Lunch is on from 11-3pm. Omelettes, Burritos, fabulous French Toast, Pancakes, Crepes, Burgers, Salads, Sandwiches and Wraps comprise... More

Overall very solid. Benedicts are tasty, coffee is good, decent menu. Nothing on the menu stands out as innovative or overly original, but I was impressed with the the service and quality of food.

First visit to the Sassy... it did not disappoint! We had the Sassy Onion Burger and a Quinoa Burger. Both were excellent. The Sassy comes with onion rings and a sweet chili dipping sauce which was fantastic. Great service. Good value for the price. Would recommend to anyone looking for fun American fare in Salem

I went with colleagues who raved about this place but it didn't strike me as anything special. The burger was small and dried out, and the fries were plentiful but not especially good. Perhaps I was there on an 'off-day'.

We tried the Sassy Onion at the suggestion of a friend, and what a great little place it is. We enjoyed breakfast there twice, and both times our food was wonderful. They have a nice gluten free menu, which is a very precious thing when you're traveling! On the weekend you may have to wait for a few minutes, but... More
