Description: Cafe 116 combines premium coffee and espresso drinks with fresh and healthy food. Unique for our upstairs kitchen, Cafe 116 makes and bakes all of our breakfast, lunch and pastries items. From traditional French croissants to inspiring soups and quiches, our cafe gives you that place to go for an excellent cappuccino and a delightful healthy meal. We use Blue Bottle Coffee Company's beans from Oakland, California, where organic coffee is roasted in small batches and shipped to us that same day. Cafe 116 is the first coffee shop in Oregon to proudly serve their coffee. Cafe 116 was opened in 2011 by owner Joachim Wald with high hopes to create a vibrant breakfast and lunch cafe in a contemporary setting. Originally from Germany, Joachim spent much of his time in large European cities and brings a bit of their much beloved styles to his cafe. This cafe is perfect for many occasions, a quick bite to eat, sit down with friends or family for breakfast or lunch, a quick latte to go, a coffee business meeting, studying for a test in the calm environment or simply to hang out with your favorite scone or coffee. So come on by and have a cup of coffee with us.

“Best.coffee.ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

My love affair with Blue Bottle Coffee began with its humble beginnings in the Hayes district of SF. Imagine my delight when my son said he found it in Ashland. Good boy! He brought us to this lovely cafe where we indulged in our beloved mochas and they are just as divine here as in the city. Run, don't walk, to Cafe 116 and try any of the coffee drinks for yourself to discover what truly GOOD coffee should taste like.

“A calm little gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

AMAZING cucumber mint gazpacho soup!! It was so good that I bought a carton to go, put it in the fridge in my bed and breakfast, and had it for breakfast :)
Very friendly young ladies working the counter, clean place, very calm and airy atmosphere. My husband had a sandwich and I enjoyed a salad with tuna. Everything about the experience was satisfying.

“Good sandwiches and soups”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

On our second stay in Ashland we stopped here for lunch once more. Everything was very good as was the first time. We had Caprese and turkey + apple sandwiches, a chicken tortilla and Indian dal soups. Service was quick and efficient.

“Off the Plaza Pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

How about a comfortable, welcoming place to eat or drink a coffee or meet friends, off the Plaza and away from the rush...this is it. I like the variety of people here, like the group of friends studying Italian, or the varied one-on-one casual business meetings or just me reading the paper and eating a great scone with a very rich latté. Even outside seating with blankets in the winter!

“Our "go to" coffee shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We've not eaten here, besides excellent pastries with coffee, but this is where we get coffee in Ashland. First stop in the morning, and often stop by after lunch or before or after a show. We have never been disappointed, and a variety of drinks and treats, keeps the kids happy. Some new/better furniture would be nice, but otherwise we love this place. There may be other great coffee shops in Ashland, but after finding Cafe 116, we've happily made them part of our visits to OSF.
