“Best Bandon Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2007

The hashbrowns are great! The coffee is not. But everything else is pretty darned good for an inexpensive, greasy spoon. But I was puzzled at the little paper cup of frozen peas accompanying my dish, which I believe was called "Pauline's Favorite". My fellow diners had biscuits and gravy (great) and blueberry pancakes (also great, but get them with the blueberries in the pancakes).

If you go on a Sunday, it will be very busy. The place runs like a well-oiled machine, so they will get to you when it's your turn, and bring you some coffee right away in your own unique mug (they have a cool display of different mugs on the wall). Everyone is really nice and helpful with the very large menu. Forget your cholesterol count and waistline and order what you want (walk it off on the beach later!!). I've been there three times while visiting the Oregon coast and it's all good at the Minute! What a fantastic breakfast joint!

“Great Local Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2006

We eat there last week (week of Sept 17th) and had a great breakfast. This is a busy place to eat. Amazingly they even served grits, which we hardly ever see on the west coast. I ordered a side order of fruit (small size) and it was huge!

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2006

We only ate here for breakfast on August 6, 2006, but I wish we'd eaten here for dinner! This is a plain, no atmosphere kind of place that serves up a hearty breakfast at a reasonable price (well for a resort town anyway!) The 'decor' is a wall of mugs donated by customers.

The food is the star here. Plain good eating. Wonderful pancakes, fluffy eggs, freshly made biscuits, great coffee (and the refilled the cups often too!) They don't serve exotic fare, but it is tasty. Many locals were eating here as well. The waitstaff greeted them by name as they entered the cafe.
