My spouse and I loved the atmosphere of this place. It's small, and was really busy on the Saturday morning we visited. They only had one server, so I'd recommend people come prepared to have a leisurely breakfast/brunch. Food was pretty good, we had the burrito (which had a delicious chipotle sauce on top) and the breakfast bowl. I think... More

We stumbled upon this quaint little cafe and fell in love! It is small but what a great "breakfast at mom's" vibe. My husband and I split the Eggs Benedict and the French Toast Sampler. Both were outstanding!

We had a great breakfast and the staff was very friendly. Obviously the food was homemade and was delicious.

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
