We just left this establishment with full bellies and happy faces. My mom and I split the plate that had eggs, meat, potatoes, and a biscuit. The whole thing was excellent but the real treat was the homemade biscuit! It seemed like the people loved...More

Stopped in on our last day in Lincoln City - wish it would have been sooner! Sonny makes cinnamon rolls that are out of this world! We don’t usually like biscuits and gravy but they are heavenly here at Nelscott Cafe! A very wonderful experience!

Do not miss this fabulous breakfast spot. Cute as a button, many choices, fast service. The French toast was as good if not better than I have ever eaten.

Don't be fooled by the simple beach restaurant façade. The food was incredibly good (see pix of my eggs Benedict w/almond coated side of french toast). The visual definitely caught my attention as well as the wonderful fresh tastes.
