we have been going back to cafe 22 ever since we found it.... We really love the fish, and the BBQ is amazing too. We really love the wait staff too, very friendly, fast and efficient, we tease our favorite that we are going to adopt her. The front is easy to miss, and to drive by without seeing it... More

Out stop at Cafe 22 was a total drive by. We were up in the area and elected to stop. The food was great. They provided a great homestyle meal. Where the difference was made for us is we had our dogs. The staff allowed us to sit in an outside area and brought our food out in to go... More

Haven't been here for a while. My wife and I stop by for breakfast and really enjoyed our meals. Customer service was wonderful looking forward to eating here again.

On the way to the Oregon Coast? I would suggest traveling west on Hwy 22 from Salem (you'll end up in Lincoln City) and stopping at Café 22 for breakfast. We've eaten breakfast there twice and have not been disappointed either time. The menu is good, the coffee hot, the bacon crisp and the homemade biscuits are amazing! Although we... More

My husband and I stopped going to Cafe 22 a few months back because the last 2 to 3 times we were there the cajun chicken sandwich my husband ordered was always dry and usually missing the cajun seasoning, my tuna melt got more and more watery and soggy. The service was always good, I gave the rate of average... More

This place has no concept of customer service.Waited 12 minutes for a table when I counted 8 empty tables available.My second visit to this place.I give second chances.Food the first time was good,not wonderful.Service deplorable.I called from outside to inform them We were not happy with the service,they hung up on us.Not worth the time it took to drive there.

Saw this place on the way home from the beach and thought it looked interesting, so returned later for dinner. The place certainly isn't fancy, but the service was good and the food tasty and plentiful. We tried the french dip, the beef ribs, the bbq platter and a burger. All were very good! I've heard their breakfasts are also... More

They have a large and nice outside area with umbrellas. Their waffels are vastly superior to other places in town. I have tried just about every place since I have lived here for almost 50 years. Their other food is good also but the difference in the waffles is the lightness, taste, and texture. So many places are like you... More

We tried to have dinner on a Saturday at 6:00 only to be told they were closed. Nice outside seating. Inside does not match the BBQ theme. Lots of other places to eat. We won't be back.

Clean little place and welcoming staff. Started off with an awesome hot chocolate to warm us from a cold, rainy day. Not too sweet and lots of real whipped cream on top. Husband liked his patty melt but I was disappointed in my chicken caesar wrap. The wrap overall was very dry and even a side of dressing didn't help... More
