We have been to Sassy Onion for the past several months for breakfast and lunch. They have consistently served wonderful food and given outstanding service. We have had Katrina and Samantha as our servers and they have been delightful and made sure that our orders were done right. My husband has had their corncakes and farmer's breakfast and loved them.... More

Good size portions means you will leave full and satisfied. There is a full coffee espresso bar for all the usual varieties of coffee creations. It is good sized single story floor... More

Nice little place for breakfast. The Captain's Stack is my favorite, the food is very flavorful. Sometimes, there can be a bit of a wait. I like that they leave a thermos of coffee on the table.

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'.
