Soooo different than the typical out of a box restaurant food that you tend to find in Lincoln City . Everything is freshly made and delicious. We enjoy the unique menu items ( try the poppers , they are fabulous) . We will be back again , and again .

I had the breakfast plate and my husband had a short stack of pancakes (plus the sausage from my plate.) Both dishes were great. Staff was very friendly and service was great. Would definitely go again!

Excellent spot for brunch. I had the Hawaiian omelette and coffee, but friends had the hot chocolate, and that looked pretty inviting. Lovely patio, and friendly service.

Me: two for breakfast Host: ok. About 15 minutes. Go ahead and wait outside (It was a nice day out) Me: I stroll down the other storefronts while my wife sits and waits out front. I notice a nice looking young couple get out their car and head for the cafe. I turn away and then look back to notice... More

I had reviewed Nelscott Café here several years ago and gave it the RAVE it deserved. I returned just recently ... and wish I hadn't. I should have kept the memories I had. The place must have changed owners. All of the fantastic menu items were now GONE. They were replaced by tired concoctions with prices that belonged at a... More

It's the kind of place you stumble on. We've been to Lincoln City many times and only now discovered this delightful little restaurant. Before the morning was over, my wife had recommended it to folks who had missed their first choice. Our breakfast was delicious. The service and atmosphere was friendly. It's tiny; even with the address, we could have... More

We discovered this gem 4 years ago and wanted to make sure we returned on our trip this year. Yummy food for the whole family. Timely and friendly service by the manager. We had to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated because they were already filling up at 830a. But the manager said to come back and he would save... More

We ate here this last weekend, and will most likely not be returning. We have ate here before and returned based on a good meal we had there last year. My how tings change, we sat ourselves at the first table in the door, next to the front counter. We were seated for almost 15 minutes before we finally had... More
