“Gourmet Food With the Butterflies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

We stopped at Tomaselli's after a visit to the butterfly project at the Elkton Community Education Center and had our second happy surprise of the day. We entered the cafe and were immediately impressed by the bakery case filled with familiar but different versions of some of our favorites. The cafe has a pleasant, clean decor somewhat reminiscent of Southern Europe. The creative menu made it difficult to choose but we did and fortunately each of our party tried something different. The salads were fresh and combined familiar ingredients in new and tasty ways. The pear and cheese pizza was the most interesting with a gorgonzola type cheese topped with walnuts. I would have preferred pecans because I had to forgo the walnuts due to an allergy and the nuts were needed to marry all the flavors and texture together. The coffee and service were both good and I am looking forward to visiting Tomaselli's again.

“A wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

On our way to Ashland Oregon, we wanted to stop for lunch but were out of cell service range so couldn't find any place until we drove into Elkton, Oregon. I checked to see if we had cell service (which we did) and checked Trip Advisor. Tomaselli's came up and we saw it on the main street and stopped. WOW!!!! Since we were going to Ashland to see some plays and knew we would be going out for dinner, we elected to share the pulled pork tacos and what a wonderful choice that was!!!! The pork is smoked there and has a smokey chipotle taste with avocado, cheese, tomatoes and I imagine home made tortillas with homemade salsa and chips. We don't remember ever having better tacos anywhere! We questioned our decision to share and have already planned our trip back to stop again for more fabulous flood. Elkton is one lucky town!

“Nice place to eat.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

We stopped in for breakfast before heading home after RVing in Elkton for the weekend. The food was good but not our 'cup of tea' type of food. We got a couple of your orders mixed up and had to send them back to the kitchen to get redone. Never did get our extra milk that we ordered. Think we would have been happier with the 'regular' type food next door.

Am sure for a lot of people this would be a wonderful place to eat.

“Great experience - wonderful food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

After reading the reviews and then being reccomended by a local winery we decided to try Tomaselli's.. You will NOT be disappointed. The quality of food is outstanding and the bread for their sandwiches is homemade and has a wonderful flavor. This is not a run of the mill type of restaurant and they put their own personal touch on something as simple as coleslaw - the taste was wonderful. Tomaselli's should not be passed by - we wonder just what took us so long to try it ourselves.

“Wow. It deserves a #1 rating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

When I see that a restaurant is the only one in town, I keep my expectations low. But this restaurant would be ranked high even in a much bigger city. The salads were excellent as was the Mac n Cheese.
The service was great. It was fun to catch up with old friends and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.
