Don't tell anyone about my favorite meeting place!

There's just enough room here in this historic building for you, me, and the rest of us that already LOVE this nostalgic coffee house. 😄. The food, drinks, and service are all great! The staff knows how to make things just right. But if the word gets out, we might have to end up waiting in line... read more

A friend of mine suggested we go to this cafe. I don't drink coffee and typically just avoid cafés but I decided to just go and get a tea. We ended up ordering food which we both were very happy with. It was a great place to catch up with a friend. I'm sure we will be back.

If you are looking for a nice place to just sit and relax this is the place. There were quite a few people here when we arrived and none were in a hurry to exit. My daughter loved being able to drink tea and read without being hurried. Staff are friendly and attentive but not hovering or intrusive. Nice menu,... More

I was surprised to see such a happening place on a Tuesday morning! Great service, great ambiance, and decent food! I noticed a group of ladies, about 8-10, were meeting for a study. It was nice to see a place accommodate this. I wished I had more time to browse the goods that were available for purchase. Will definately be... More

A large group of birders showed up in late morning and were promptly seated. Food was abundant, done right. Wait staff was quick, witty and efficient. Coffee was fine. When someone asked for something special, it appeared fast and with a smile. Good prices, funky fun decor, friendly casual atmosphere.

We were traveling from Seattle to San Francisco and stayed overnight in one of the many innocuous motels in Springfield. Who knew they had an adorable downtown?! The Washburne was the perfect spot to grab espresso, and an omelet for breakfast. This is not a restaurant with traditional table service, more like a café...you order at the counter then take...

It's located in the old Springfield Armory Building, downtown Springfield. Very quaint and has the feel of yesterday. The menu has breakfast and lunch items, coffees & teas, panini sandwiches, salads (I love the Greek), desserts and wine & beer. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and make you want to come back really soon. Great place for breakfast or lunch... More

The breakfast menu has many delicious items. My husband and I were both pleased with our choices. Bakery is made on sight and looked terrific. The gal taking our order was friendly and helpful. Then it is brought to the table. The restaurant is cute and was a fun place for us to stop.

Great place for delicious coffee and great food items with that home cooked taste! Everything Ive tried on the breakfast menu was very tasty! Ive given up on the hassle of trying to get a good cup of coffee in Eugene, but here its relaxing and fast service, and friendly barristas.
