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

Stopped in for breakfast on a short weekend get away and discovered this place is very popular. We had a 15 minute wait for a table for two because it is a small, quaint cottage with limited seating. We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and on top of every little detail going on throughout the restaurant... More

Small local cafe. Nice menu selection even for your dog! Ordered the BLT for breakfast. Nice and fresh ingredients with thick tasty bacon. Served with pipping hot fries.The tables around us all enjoyed there food and plenty of it. Inside and outside dining.

A fa tastic little place with a warm, friendly atmosphere. We were seated right away and given the right amount of time to decide without the awkward wait. Our waiter Sonny was affable and comfortably chatty. We ordered the wipeout with the extra egg and the poppers. What can I say, it was incredibly tasty and filling. Definitely going to... More
