Friendly and great service, good food. I had a bowl of chili with lots of cheese on top and a Greek Chicken Salad which was huge and fresh. My wife chose the ham sandwich and garden salad; freshly baked bread. Enjoyed our time immensely.

Met the owner of The Pink House. Asked him what the house specialty was and he said "Baby Back Ribs". Two days later we decided to try this, small, out of the way café. It was as good as he said it would be. Tender with just the right amount of BBQ sauce. The side salad was better than expected.... More

The trip was well worth the drive. The house is historic and interesting to walk through. The staff was very nice and the food was awesome. The cinnamon roll is worth adding to the breakfast.

A wonderful variety of great food. They take their time in preparing everything. I was impressed with how fresh everything was and the dishes are beautifully served. A quiet out of the way place to go for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!!!

The food was absolutely flavorful and fulfilling.

We drove over from Salem to try this cafe. We were met promptly at the door and seated quickly. The sitting space is very small, so if there happens to be a noisy table you will hear everything. Probably not a good fit for small children. My mom had the rueben and I had the chicken curry sandwich on sourdough... More

One of the first things our server told us, as were gushing about what a beautiful home the restaurant occupies, is that the owner is burned out and is closing The Pink House within the year. And she flippantly told us she had already given her notice and didn't care in the slightest. So service was fine but not exactly...gracious.... More

My best friend has lived in Independence for many years, and she was excited to take me to The Pink House this past weekend as she knows I enjoy unique, independent restaurants with delicious food! The Pink House completely delivered on all these points. The space itself is charming, as was our server who had a great sense of humor.... More

Stopped by here on a road trip after reading the other Trip Advisor reviews--so glad I had the app on my phone. The menu offered just the kinds of things we wanted, sandwiches and salads, and we were very pleased with the freshness of the ingredients and the lovely preparations--my curried chicken salad came with an abundance of fresh fruit.

Found on TripAdvisor this is the best in Independence, OR, and I would agree! Small inside but they have a nice patio for warm weather. The food was very good and abundant. We had lunch there, and the service was friendly.
