Woke up a little hung over but had a craving for crepes. Stopped by the Blackberry to curb the cravings. Not only the best blackberry crepe, eggs, and baccon, but a great late to top it all off. A very nice, quiet, and relaxed place with food above and beyond ones expectations. With friendly servers and the price I will be back again and again. So for anyone in the Welches area or on their way to or from the Mt. you should make it a stop along the way.

My wife and I spent a great weekend in the Mt Hood area, arriving Friday at lunch time. Based on the Tripadvisor recomendations we chose to eat at the Blackberry Cafe. Being the off-season business was slow which worked to our advantage as Larry, the owner, was filling-in for a wait staff. Extremely hospitable, he treated us like old friends, telling tales of the business, its history and so forth. We ordered the steak and eggs which was cooked to perfection, a culinary delight. Later, his wife and head chef, Michelle appeared. Equally gracious, she insisted we not leave until we sampled a delicious ice cream desert on the house. We not only had a meal that lived up to its hype but were treated like VIPs in the process. If you are in the area don't pass by this fine restaurant. We will definitely return.

We were in Welches for a week and ate breakfast at Blackberry nearly every day.....could not have been better....food choices, service, atmosphere, value. Because we liked the breakfast so much, we were persuaded to try the Friday night dinner that is reservation only. We didn't think it would be much at $10. a person but were we surprised.....three courses plus dessert, excellent presentation and variety. If you can make it by all means do so.

If you are heading to Mt. Hood, work Blackberry into your itinerary.

This friendly, quaint "five-star" cafe (located at the Mt. Hood Village RV/Camping Resort on Hwy 26 -- one mile west of the town of Welches) is a treasure-find, particularly for those that enjoy delectable food, nice atmosphere, attention to service and detail, and fabulous breakfasts served all day. (Their lunch menu is equally great, and includes several vegetarian options). Breakfast favorites are their signature blackberry pancakes topped with a scrumptious blackberry compote, blackberry blinzes, french-toast creations, and "made-to-perfection" omelettes. Menu items are reasonably priced, especially for the high quality food, preparation and extras that make dining at the cafe an enjoyable, worthwhile experience. It's important to note the cafe closes at 2:00 P.M., and it's closed Monday and Tuesday.

If you're able to plan ahead, on Friday nights at 6:30 (by reservation only) the cafe puts on a "Dinner Club" event that features an appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert from a select region of Italy (the region varies each Friday). The food is outstanding -- delicious -- and the cost is only $10 per person (excluding drinks and tip). The dinner is held in the cafe's banquet room (upstairs) that offers beautiful vistas and views of the surrounding mountains.

If you're heading to or from Mt. Hood, or staying at the Mt. Hood Village Resort, the Blackberry Cafe is well worth the stop.

(Note: The restaurant downstairs is wheelchair-accessible; the banquet room upstairs is not).
