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.

Glad I found this small chain a few years ago. They have very healthy offerings that I like. But I most often have the original Yumm Bowl or plate. Consistent quality. I met a consultant on a plane once and she confirmed the office has a lot of integrity.

This restaurant is really known for their famous "yum sauce", sadly I wasn't a fan of it. I was really bummed one day when my boss said they were buying us all lunch from there and to decide what you wanted from the menu. I thought hey why not it's a free lunch I will try something different...love love love... More

Cafe Yumm! is a place I never tire of. The food is unique and excellent. The ambiance is casual and you order your food at the counter and they then serve it to you when it is ready. Consistent. Excellent.

I was driving through past Eugene and decided to stop here to eat. I'm so glad that I did! There are plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. I would recommend getting their tempeh on top of whatever bowl you desire.

The Yumm Sauce makes or breaks the Yumm Bowl. If you like it, two thumbs up! If you don't, get something else next time. I, for one, like Yumm Sauce. My standard Yumm Bowl was tasty and fairly filling. The ingredients were fresh and tasty. While dining, however, I thought about how little the ingredients must have cost for this... More
