Don't let the vegan menu lead you astray. The foods are impeccably prepared and a wonder to those of us who are omnivores! Delicious and amazing! What I'm trying to say is, you don't need to be a vegan to enjoy this restaurant. Period. Friendly, down to earth service, and cute digs. Go ahead, take a chance...you won't be disappointed.

My son and I were driving through Eugene and googled restaurants in the area rather than hunt all around. Eugene didn't look like a place we'd want to stay around anyway. So we stopped here...I'm a vegetarian he's not. The place looked divey but that's ok...reminded me of places we eat at in Laramie. It was crowded so we waited... More

Vegan, maybe. But if you're thinking healthy, think again. This is greasy fries, fried everything, heavy greasy diner-style food, that just happens to be vegan. Not our cup of tea, sorry!

The wait staff at this gem of a find are friendly and helpful. We had been curious about tofu as an egg substitute but nervous to try it. One of us got them scrambled and the other Iran omelet we have been vegan over two years and the omelet was just the breakfast treat we have been missing. We just... More

We chose this place based on the great reviews. There was nothing fantastic about our experience. The food is not especially healthy, although it is free of animal products, and our food was not exceptional in any way. Nothing about the place makes me want to return. Glad others are able to enjoy it.

I'm from Mississippi and love me some fried chicken and gravy...so had to try their "fried chicken" platter. The Cornbread cafe hit it out of the park!!!! Could not tell it was not chicken and the collard greens and cheese grits were perfection! ! My husband had the burger, LOVED IT! This place is full of locals and has a... More

We stopped in Eugene on our way home and found CC on a vegetarian/vegan restaurant search site. What a find. Great burger, chili and fries. Great desserts. Great service. Great price. Too bad we're only passing through.

I look forward to eating here every time I come to Eugene. I get to experience food that I otherwise don't eat and I love delicious comfort food. It usually takes me 20 minutes to finally pick something and it takes all of my will power to not order everything on the menu. I love everything that I have ordered... More

A friend of mine and I went to Cornbread Cafe a few weeks ago. She's an omnivore and I'm close to vegan (I eat a little dairy). The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I'd recommend Cornbread Cafe to vegans and nonvegans alike.

Thank irislily
