I am not a vegan but I am open to new things. Being from the south, I have an appreciation for soul food but unlike my southern brethren I am not prejudiced against vegans making soul food. It turns out to be just as tasty, albeit a bit augmented. If you are open to new things and you like southern... More

We went to Cornbread Cafe upon Guy Fieri's (Triple D) recommendation, but weren't sure what to expect from a vegan restaurant, being confirmed omnivores. All I can say is Yum! So much deep flavor, and generous portions left us very satisfied. I especially liked the Southern fried tofu, mac uncheese, fried "fish," cornbread and slaw.

Here's the "Honest Scoop": My high school aged daughter suggested we give this place a shot. I wasn't expecting much, but was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Great selection, great quality, friendly service. I'll definitely return.

Just delicious and plentiful. We were only in Eugene for 1 day and we went there for lunch and then back again for dinner! Very nice service too.

I like retro, but this place looks rundown, not hip. The food was average, as was the service. Three of us ate there, we shared, and none of us thought the food was better than you'd find at a cheap buffet place.

Word-of-Mouth alerted us to this eatery some time ago, and we finally had the opportunity to make the trip to partake here. This is a vegan café, with an eclectic ambiance, comfortable and casual decor and booth, counter or outdoor seating. We ordered 1 Sample Platter for the 2 of us, and a side of greens each, after learning from... More

This visit we knew better. The portions here are large, so we split the Eugenewich and had enough room for dessert, a chi cupcake and peanut butter pie. Cornbread, you do not disappoint.
