5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Loved the Minute Inn. Great for breakfast. I liked that there were selections that were "mini." Great coffee.

“Terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Our motel suggested this place for dinner on a Saturday night. We arrived about 5:30 and walked in right after another couple. There was only one other table occupied and they were just finishing dinner. One of the two waitresses told us we could sit any where so picked a table fairly close to the couple that was just before us and waited. We placed our order and waited some more. The couple that had preceded us had their order, ate and got their check while we were still waiting. At that point we got up to leave but found that the waitress was putting the salad on one of our orders so went back and sat down thinking we would soon be served but we waited some more. One of our orders was the same sandwich as the first couple had ordered. Finally we were served and we had ordered two different items with the thought that we would share. The sandwich was good but the enchilada was so spicy it was almost unedible so we did not share since one of us could not eat spicy food. We did not get out of there until 7:00 PM and no one else came in while we were there until just before we left. We will never go back no matter how inexpensive the food is because it is not worth the terrrible service.

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

All I can say is yum. Great place for breakfast. They have the best biscuits and gravy. Four of us ate here and all loved it. The pancakes are huge. Omelets are also very filling and yummy.

“Great Prices, Typical Cafe Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We head back into Old Town for breakfast and some quick shopping. Our plan had been to stop back in at the Bandon Baking Company and Deli, but apparently, they are closed on Sunday. I guess they need rest too.

We cross the street to the Minute Cafe and the joint is JUMPING. We have to wait a bit for a table to open up and then get one near the door and a window facing the street. We can watch what's going on in Old Town Bandon. Shops are just starting to open. The wait staff is RUNNING. This is a popular place with the locals too. It takes some time to place our order and to get our food, but it's to be expected. They have plenty of staff, but the place can only handle so much. We understand this. I've waitressed before. The food is average, good cafe food. I have bacon and eggs and hubby has pancakes and eggs. The prices are SUPER reasonable. Oh happy day for that!

“Great local breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Food is great, service is great - no frills, very casual and very local! It is a diner atmosphere, which is what we were looking for - the coffee is good, and our table ordered a wide rangee of menu items, all which were great. We will be coming back.
