“Refreshing surprise on the coast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Scotch eggs? Peanut Butter Burger?Just some of the different things on the menu. The rest is even better and more tame! I am telling you that you cannot come to Lincoln City and not stop here for either breakfast or Lunch. We stopped by to have quick breakfast before running errands and ended up having a long leisurely breakfast with beinets on the very small but nice outside sheltered patio. The food was perfect, the mocha I had was a dream, and the sevice was friendly fast and homey. I would have stayed longer if I could.

“This place is a Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Came for Breakfast, and there are a lot of choices. Checked out what everyone else was having, there was a lot of variety, and it all looked scrumptious. All was very creative and delicious. I could go back every day for a week and never get bored. The French Toast options looked wonderful, as did the Pumpkin Pancakes. What ever you choose, it will be a LOT of food.
Our breakfast was perfect, from the potatoes to the biscuits and everything in between. All was fresh and freshly made. Tried the little fresh powdery donuts which I can't spell (starts with a B and I can say it but not spell it) and they are a treat. I would highly recommend this place and hope they stay in business a long time. It's hard to get food this good on the coast. The place is very clean. There is seating upstairs and outside as well. Tip your waitress well, she is worth every $$.

“Fun breakfast foods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

This cafe featured fun takes on classic breakfast foods, such as four different types of french toast and breakfast "poppers". The quality and preparation of the food were excellent. We were there mid-week, so I didn't get a feel for how busy it gets. The wait staff were friendly but seemed a bit overworked.

“Fun And Dog Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Nelscott Cafe is a fun little restaurant in the south part of Lincoln City. After reading about it in a restaurant guide, we headed home a different way just to give it a whirl. It is a small house in a strip mall style place. You can eat downstairs, upstairs, or outside in their dog friendly patio. Being a nice day and having the dog with us, we went outside. The place is only open for breakfast and lunch. Our server was very good and efficient. The place does have a lot of unusual things on the menu like oatmeal French toast and peanut butter bacon burgers to name a couple. We were there for breakfast and being hungry I went with a breakfast bowl. It was a good size bowl with lots of tasty ingredients and it filled me up. Bacon, country gravy, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, eggs and cheese all mixed in together nicely. They have fun little things at the table to keep one busy if need be. Next time I'm in Lincoln City, I'll know of one place to go back to.
