your favorite restaurant

we are coming again to the area, and would love to know your favorite restaurant. we most possibly, not choose the really high end, as i am a chef, and hate to pay, unless it is superb....we are open to anything, ethnic, what ever. please help us, as we don't live there!!

any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi Charley, given that we are not "foodies" by any stretch of the imagination, we enjoyed this place in Lafayette, about 6 miles from McMinnville. We ate there again a few months ago and had another good lunch:

There are a lot of good restaurants in Mac. Just depends on what you want for food and price point. A few of my favorites include Wildwood Cafe for breakfast, La Rambla, Bistro Maison, Alf's for a dive place, Sage for their cream of broccoli soup, Red Foxx Bakery, Cornerstone Coffee, McMenamins for their rooftop bar in nice weather, Nick's for Italian and Honest Chocolates for well, chocolate;)

I stayed in McMinnville last summer in order to eat at Thistle. I was not disappointed. Worthy destination, coming nearly 1000 miles from San Francisco. I'm working on an excuse to get up there again. Check out a sample menu online.

Rooftop bar of the Hotel Oregon was fun for sunset, but is strictly tater tots and (good) beer.

ha , half brit...what you started!! ha

thanks so much, we will surely try some of these. we were disappointed last year, as the red fox bakery was out of everything at 11 am. hear that they have the best macaroons...may order some before hand.

are there any gourmet grocery stores, that i can buy some good oregon crab or something to make at the garh farm , where we stay??

anyone have suggestions on that...much appreciation.

There is a Roth's on the south side of town, just south of the campus. Then on 3rd street there is a Harvest Fresh.
