We went for my birthday and we won't go back! The sandwiches aren't worth $8 a piece and the cremosa's were tasteless and not worth the $2 we were charged. We also sat there for a while wondering why everyone that got there after us were getting their food and drinks first. Finally we got our drinks but still no... More

Great atmosphere ... delicious food ...fantastic Breakfast menu.. Although I have enjoyed their sandwiches and homemade soups on many occasions . I keep forgetting about breakfast. Not any more! Love the quaint look and feel. And the staff are really nice. Obviously a favorite with the locals, always a good sign. Im glad that I stopped by again...Never been disappointed

This is a very pleasant lunch stop in Springfield, close to the freeway. We found the food to be very well prepared, with fresh ingredients. The only disappointment was that the manager told me they can't afford to use the wonderful local produce available in this area. I had a spinach wrap and my husband had one of the paninis.... More

We were on the I-5, and in need of a rest break. We veered off towards springfield, and stopped at the visitor info to ask for a recommendation. They pointed us to the washburne cafe, and it was good advice. We had a Mediterranean panini with coffees, and it was scrumptious! Definitely hit the spot. The town has a quaint... More

Great little place in downtown Springfield, the only negative to this little place is the location. Downtown Springfield needs a facelift in the worst of ways; Wildish and Planktown help but there needs to be more than just these 3 locations to bring this place back from the dumps. Food was a little pricey but not unreasonable. Will definitely come... More

We have eaten breakfast here many times. The service is friendly, prompt and the food is always very tasty. Their coffee is the best!

Traveling or just not a lot of time you can place your order and be served quickly and be on your way. Building used to be the old Armory in Spfd, and has a lot of history, Dances used to be held in the building in the early 40's.

Joined a friend there for coffee and a chat around 11:00 am. The White Mocha was wonderful, while it was not as hot as I like the taste was excellent. The coffe was mildly warm? Service was great, friendly and prompt. We wanted to sit, sip, and visit without pressure which did not seem to be a problem. We did... More

I love the quiet atmosphere, the service, and the food. I've enjoyed meeting people there from the community. I have also written a review on my community page: www.facebook.com/springfieldoregonchristmastime where I would like to post events around the community about what they're doing for the holidays. Thanks.
