Crescent Café was started in 2007 as a local, family-owned restaurant. We strive to serve the freshest, seasonal ingredients and create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere for our guests.
A McMinnville favorite
We have eaten here for a few years and can count on consistently good food and service. The menu changes seasonally and the pancakes of the day are not to be missed. The corn grits with scallions deserves special mention because it is not the mushy mess that one would usually expect. It is instead a delicious, flavorful polenta cake with fresh scallions.
Words that begin with “E”
Words that start with E that describe our breakfast this morning at the Crescent Cafe with friends, Exceptional, Excellent, Extraordinary. There are many others but to keep it brief, the service was Exceptional, the atmosphere was Excellent it was like sitting in a quaint kitchen nook and certainly not last or least was the food which in a word was Extraordinary. Highly recommend experiencing for yourself our gotta go to place for breakfast or lunch in historic downtown McMinnville. And lastly they sure put the “H” in the holidays. We’ll see you next time we’re in town in a couple of months.
Downtown McMinnville Oregon Outstanding Breakfast Place
We stopped here on our way home from the coast to have some breakfast and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was outstanding as well as the service and atmosphere in this place. Much as already been written about the breakfast menu items available and trust us, you won't go wrong with anything you order here. We will be back real soon!!!
Best breakfast in town!
First things, first! A couple of cups of the robust, eye-opening coffee. My husband ordered the Breakfast Special, which was an Open-Faced Omelet (Crumbled bacon, bleu cheese, pear and caramelized onions on a bed of fluffy eggs. Housemade cornmeal bread toast and hashbrowns.) I ordered 3 Crepes, I ate one and found it too sweet for breakfast. Boxed it up for later. (Filled with lemon whipped cream and drizzled on top, a lemon syrup with fresh lemon zest and citrus sugar.) Later, that night in our hotel, we finished off the crepes. And they were spectacular!
We were driving from Portland to the coast and stopped in McMinnville for lunch. We were so happy that we chose to eat here. We ate outside, and the weather was perfect. The food was also excellent. Totally recommend the fried cornmeal!!!
