The food here is decently good. My biggest gripe is the stingy portions. I always leave hungry. It is a good healthy choice for food on the go. Just over priced for what you get.

Cafe Yumm has several outlets in the Eugene and Portland, Oregon, area. Each offers the same menu, which provides diverse, healthy vegan or vegetarian bowls, salads, beverages and desserts. Inexpensively priced with quick and friendly service. Beer and wine are available, however, the selection is limited. Takeout is quite popular

I actually love the food there, but if you are ordering a take out then good luck and especially if it is online. I have to remind them to not forget the chicken or the yogurt every single time and they still do. However I am addicted to their bowls. The quesadilla no flavor. They need to work better on...

If you were looking for something quick and fresh, this is the place to go. Their bowls include beans and rice and cheese and avocados and of course their well-known Yumm sauce. I have tried to make them at home myself and they are never quite the same. There are lots of choices for vegetarians and I just heard they... More

I hear you either love the YUM sauce or hate it... I HATED it. I couldn't get over the flavor, so I didn't eat my food. I can't speak for the other menu items, but anything containing that sauce, I would never touch.

Thank you for sharing your feedback about one of our sauces. You are right that it's not for everyone, and we appreciate people having unique tastes and preferences. On your next visit, you might ask for another dressing or something to replace the Yumm! Sauce. Or, try it on the side or ask for half as much on your menu... More

I have been eating at Cafe Yumm for almost 20 years, starting at their original 5th Street Market location. My go-to is the original. I can doctor it up just the way I like it. When I talked about another restaurant that was over-rated, and looked at the sauce they served, I thought, "this is not as good as Cafe... More

I've endured this on a number of occasions, I've went from ewwww... to... "ok I can tolerate this," and back again to the "ICK factor." Not because it's changed... but because... It is what it is... Beans, Rice, Cheese, Dirt and Sour Cream. The consistency of luke warm monkey vomit. And over-priced. Dining here has never been my choice. Though... More

Drove into town last night from Southern California. Tired, worn out and extremely excited because we drop our freshman off to Northwest Christian University. A friend recommended the place and met us there. Looked around and thought "typical cool college spot." Ordered a medium bowl, which a small was plenty of food, and went to sit down. Once I dove...

Love love lovelove love. Why is Cafe Yum so good? I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think it's that the ingredients are so fresh and everyone that works there seems genuinely interested in making sure you get fed. Yumm Sauce, as I'm sure you're aware, is the second best sauce in the world. (The first is... More

Easy for different dietary concerns and tasty economy. I love the salmon burger and the Yumm and greens, edamame style. Go for the Yumm sauce and take a jar- home we love it! There is some inconsistency with bowls indifferent locations, be specific when ordering.
