Eugenewich was amazing!

Wow, what a find! The Eugenewich was absolutely amazing ~ it's described as a "Southern-fried Surata tofu patty topped with melted Daiya cheddar, deep-fried carrot slices, hand-breaded onion rings, lettuce, tomato, and a smoky sauce on a grilled bun." I'm not vegan and found this sandwich to be... read more

27 degrees outside with ice and slush slowing our progress toward the airport may have skewed my impression of this mostly non-descript little place as a haven of warmth, light and comfort. ExCept - the food was really really good. Vegan. Comfort. My husband and I are Not vegan. But when we eat out we do eat organic and local... More

Tried the tempeh bacon, chicken fried tempeh, scrambled eggfu, fried polenta, home fries, waffle and coconut cream. All was delicious. The only thing that was missing from the plate was a fresh garnish (there was an orange slice) but a sprinkling of parsley, chive or cilantro as an option would have been a real flavor boost. I did ask for... More

This is vegan comfort food at its best. While my favorite meal at Cornbread Cafe is their weekend breakfast/brunch (vegan pancakes and French toast to die for!), don't miss their delectable barbecue seitan, tempting Reuben, or indescribably delicious Eugenewich. And make sure to leave room for dessert, because the sweet endings here are nothing short of sensational!

Cornbread Cafe is one of my regular spots to eat. The food is amazing and the service is consistently great! The foods that cannot eat is other restaurants are not only at Cornbread, but wonderful. It is truly comfort food. I have brought friends who were omnivores with me, and they have raved about the food as well.

My daughter and I spent a day in Eugene and selected this restaurant based on online reviews elsewhere. My daughter is vegan. The restaurant is quirky and unique, like an old diner with a twist. It is very, very casual with an old, classic feel. The selection of vegan items is nice, macaroni and "cheese," veggie burgers, sandwiches, soups, salads.... More

We when camping to Crater Lake and on the way back to Portland my wife found a veggie place in Eugene with good reviews and they do serve them and even better ones! Great comfort food, excellent taste, very fast friendly service, great menu different on Weekdays than on weekends and best of all nothing but veggies/ vegan. Another 5... More

No where else like this anywhere. Every time we visit we try new items and always also get a Eugenewich. My favorite thing to eat in Eugene. There is nothing boring here. Even my meat eater friends agree that this food is amazing and full of flavors. Everything is filling and the deserts are killer good.

After a long work week I was happy to find vegan comfort food at Cornbread Cafe; a nostalgic, quirky diner in Eugene. A repeat visit will be in order on my next trip out west!
