“One of the best breakfasts ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

There's a reason its ranked number one; the breakfast food is amazing. There will likely be a wait as its a small place. We'd recommend the creme brûlée french toast and the biscuits. Come hungry as the portion sizes are also very large. Very friendly staff.

“Word of Mouth is Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

This place is always great. Their food is homemade and tasty. I really love the breakfast hash. I would highly recommend Word of Mouth Bistro. Get there early, especially on weekends. It can be crowded.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

Excellent breakfast and very good lunches. A bit small and quaint on the inside but not uncomfortably so. Always busy so be prepared to wait a few to get seat and parking can be tight. Service has been very good and of course the food is well prepared and tastes great.

“Huge portions - worth waiting for!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

The menu was huge, the portions were overwhelming and the prices very reasonable. The staff and quality of food was excellent. Prices were inexpensive and you can eat for days on the leftovers.

“Best in Pacific Northwest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

The only way one COULD write a less than praiseworthy review MIGHT be if one's car were towed away
In our experience, we ASKED before being seated if we were okay in the little lot across the lane from the 'house' which serves as W O M, a breakfast and lunch restaurant in SALEM Oregon.
17th Street is a mildly busy road and offstreet parking is a must. Walk run or cycle, but GO to Word of Mouth!
Best restaurant experience for us many time visitors to Washington & Oregon.
Lovely menu.
Prepared by REAL chefs, carefully.
Each dish is a limited edition work of art in our view.
We plan on dining there every day (except Tues because they close) we find ourselves in Salem.
Prices are VERY fair vis a vis quality.
Do yourself a FLAVOR and enjoy great scratch cooking for roughly the same price as the competition.
Our turkey burger & fries was the best we have EVER had.
Further exploration into the menu is in our future.
Great friendly and helpful professional service and food preparation = #1 in Salem.......
and for us # 1 in both states!
