“Very satisfying for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

You will love the Yumm Original Bowl. I recommend getting the large bowl because it is so yummy you will want more. I loved this highly original combo so much, I looked up their recipe when I got home. A real winner. I wish we had this restaurant in the east.

“Love the Yumm bowls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

While shopping at the Oakway Center, I really like to stop in for a yumm bowl. To be honest, I haven't tried anything else on the menu as the yumm bowl is so tasty. We love the avocado, sour cream, cilantro, tomato and black olives that top the bowl, but the yumm sauce is the best! My kids also love to have a yumm bowl. I order a side of rice with yumm sauce for the youngest. The "outdoor seating" is more like spill-over into the hall way outside the store, but you can easily bring your bowl into the courtyard and return your dishes later. The tables are primarily self-bussed.

“Yumm Bowls are -well- yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I love this chain of healthy fast food. My favorite is the Chilean zucchini Yumm bowl. Wine and beer are available too. Atmosphere is casual. New dies include a number in Portland and one in downtown Seattle. You can buy a Yumm sauce too.

“Cafe Yumm=fantastical+unique+distinct flavor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

My first tast of Yumm sauce went something like this..."Oh my god, what is in this stuff!" I alm 53 years old and have never had a sauce that tasted like this. Rich, tangy, exploding on the tongue. Unlike any other sauce. The weird thing is my husband can't stand it. And through conversations, this seems to be often true - you either love it or you dont. My suggestion is to get a tast of it before you buy a bowl - or else order it on the side. The Yumm bowls themselves are great - brown rice, black beans, tomatoes, avacado, cheese,olives, sour cream......

“Addicting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

One of the best quick or leisurely cafes! Each one in Oregon has it's own reputation, so depending on what you are looking for will depend on which one you go to. This one, in Oakway Center is one of the better ones. Very clean, great indoor and outdoor seating. The rice is always completely cooked (that is an issue at some of the other locations) My only complaint is that at times they can be a little skimpy on the toppings. For example, if you order a Yumm bowl with no dairy, sub extra avocado, it seems that they give you the bare minimum of avocado. No extra for sure.

That aside this is a great, healthy place to eat. For a little something unhealthy, indulge in the Euphoria Chocolate covered cookies!!
