“Say Yes to Brunch here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Community Plate embodies the best of what we love about rural Oregon. They offer a succinct brunch menu of staples and daily specials that are carefully prepared using many local ingredients, yet do not overload the plate with the usual greasy brunch offerings. My scramble of eggs with crimini mushrooms, leeks, and baby broccoli was the perfect beginning to a day in wine country. It came with tiny delicately prepared "home fries" and toast. The pancakes are served in a normal portion size, not as a plate that could feed an army.

The ambience is that of a welcoming hipster barn, whether you are there alone to linger over coffee and a scone, or to share one of the large, roomy tables for 10. Will definitely return when back in town.

“Stumptown down right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

I agree with the locals that this is probably the best espresso in town thanks to the beans (Stumptown) and baristas who know how to pull shots.

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Nice ambiance inside an old downtown building with a great front window. We had a breakfast burrito and the granola and yogurt. Both were very nicely done. Service was friendly and fast and coffee was great.

“Nice for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

This was the first place we saw in town. We were staved so we stopped for lunch. It's basically a foodie deli counter and was fun. I like unique things and enjoyed my meal, but my husband does not have an adventurous palette, so there wasn't as much on the menu that appealed to him.

“Just go there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

As you can see by the reviews....you won't be disappointed, the food is great to best ever.
Food was delivered fast..(it wasn't busy at time).
Water is in help yourself wine bottles for tables, at back wall...very nice touch.
Your order, pick-up at counter...then clear your table, dishes placed along back wall.

It's a favorite place in my book.
