We had a group of eight - all amazing cooks and total foodies. Every single person loved their food and we would definitely go back. Had to wait quite a while and the two ladies who were working were working hard to keep up. There was not a table big enough for all of us but they were cool about... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch while strolling through the downtown shops along 3rd St. The cafe had a nice ambiance with instrumental music playing in the background. I enjoyed the burger which had a mildly spicy pasilla pepper topping. My wife was pleased with the reuben sandwich.

So wanted to love this place. Read other great reviews. It's warm, cozy and staff was very friendly. Started with our "breakfast appetizer," the homemade banana chocolate chip coffee cake. It was a mile high and delicious! My husband ordered eggs over wth OBrien potatoes and I ordered crepes with a puréed carmelized apple and pecan sauce. The presentation was... More

Horrible customer service. We were asked to leave our table after our meal so other patrons could sit down.

The Crescent serves a quality and often unique breakfast. The chief is clearly a master at his craft.

We spotted recently at the Crescent Cafe on our way to the Oregon Coast ... and boy are we glad we did. McMinnville is a lovely town and this spot makes it very special. My husband and I were seating promptly, we visited on a Thursday morning so there was no wait. We both had the special with potatoes and... More

This cafe is very good and the service is always top notch. There is usually a wait on Saturday and Sunday but it is worth it.

Thank SundayCJ

Crescent Cafe was started in 2007 as a local, family-owned restaurant focused on serving quality breakfast and brunch. We strive to serve the freshest, seasonal ingredients and create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere for our guests. Our bread and pastries are baked fresh daily and our menu rotates often, so there is always something new to try! We are open 7 days a week and serve breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday from 7:00am-2:00pm and brunch Saturday and Sunday from 8:00am-2:00pm. We serve beer and wine and are well known for our Mimosas!
