Only good on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday......

They change cooks like they change their underwear... The only good thing is the waitress on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.... Her name is LINDA..... If Carol (the owner) is working, generally Thursday thru Sunday, prepare to be insulted and made fun of..She puts her hands all over the male... read more

waited almost an hour for a bagel w/ cream cheese. Apparently they had kitchen problems but rather than tell anyone this they just kept taking orders and let us wait wait wait.

This is the scene. Walked in with my family, waitress looked at us and turned away. Not a word was said. I looked around awkwardly at the sad dining area, buzzing with flies. Luckily saw a sign that said the place did not take credit or debit cards. Turned around and never looked back. I don't know about the food... More

Carol's Cafe is a cute little cafe located in Waldport that serves great breakfasts and lunches. Portions are good sized and prices are reasonable. This is a local favorite for breakfast, we eat here often. The owner, Carol is the primary server. She is spunky and witty. You'll get kick out of her. Nice lady.

Small town atmosphere at its best. The Cook talked to us and was really friendly. If I hadn't been so full I would have tried one of his fresh homemade cinnamon rolls. Carol was a riot. Asked us where we were from, and even sat with us to take our order. She was just great even though my husband and... More

Breakfast is the main meal served. The restaurant is peopled by locals. The food is mainstream, hearty, and plates are generous. Carol (owner) is funny and sarcastic in a refreshing way. We go there for her as much as for the food. If you want other than small town beach ombiance, you can drive about 8-10 miles south.

Good, "home cooked" meals - served by Carol (the owner) who is a kick. (Be prepared to be teased if she likes you.)

Not impressed with either the atmosphere or the food. The room is run down and in need of a face lift, service is slow at best and the food is not so good. Won't return.

This tucked away small diner will not dissapoint. We stopped in for breakfast and was very pleased. The croissant sandwich and the biscuits and gravy were my favorite. We will be visiting Carol as much as possible.
