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.

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
