Best Food I Have Ever Had. Ever. I'm Not Kidding. - Edit

My life is forever changed. That was the best meal I've had since I can't remember!!! I brought my Omni boyfriend and he agreed ....amazing. Classic diner comfort food done right. I had the chicken fried tempeh with mashed potatoes and mac n cheese. Covered in gravy. That gravy is crazy good and idk how but that tempeh tasted like fried chicken. The breading was amazing. My bf got a spicy fried tofu sandwich and the waitress brought us over ranch to have with it (so nice of her). The ranch tasted EXACTLY like the dairy ranch I loved so much as an Omni. It blew my mind. I wanna take a bath in it or something. So delicious.

Not sure if you could tell but yeah I loved this place and would move across the country to Eugene for it.

Pros: adorable diner atmosphere, unreal food, great frie

Cons: nothing until the end of time

The best. - Edit

Cornbread Cafe has been my favorite place to eat since they were a food cart. In the seven years since the Polk location opened, I have never had a bad experience there!

They have all local beer, cider, and kombucha on tap, house-made desserts, and some of the best gravy I've ever put in my mouth. The daily specials the staff come up with are frequently my favorites!

The owner is passionate about her work and super-responsive to feedback and special requests. Cornbread has catered for me multiple times—including my wedding!—and each time, the omnivores in attendance were blown away.

Pros: Magnificent comfort food, Amazing breakfast!!!, Reasonably priced

LOVE this place! - Edit

I visit Eugene once a year and I spend that entire year dreaming about Cornbread Cafe. It is probably one of the best vegan restaurants in the west. The food is delicious and they have beer! Even their rice crispy treat is perfection. I've taken meat eaters here and they have loved it too. It has a great dive/diner vibe. I cannot recommend it enough.

SO FREAKING GOOD - Edit

I have never had chicken and waffles even before going vegan and I'm so glad I had it here. Super nice staff and great food. Love their vegan strawberry milk shake and love the cheesecake there and I hate cheesecake so that for me says a lot.

My Favorite Place In The World... Thus Far. - Edit

After eating here, I do not think a vegan life is complete until you have! I got the sampler platter and everything was just amazing. The mac and "cheese" was probably the best I've ever tried and honestly so was everything else. We also got the frozen PB pie and it was to die for. I would eat here every day for the rest of my life.

Their breakfast menu is also great, so try to stop by in the morning too if you can!

Pros: vegan, friendly staff, dessert

forget bringing kids - Edit

Decided to try this place out for my birthday. Restaurant was packed. Food was ok. I was wanting oily bad for you food but this felt soaked threw with canola oil. We brought two kids 4 years and 15 months. Not very accommodating to small kids even though they have high chairs. Not all booths are highchair ok. Ordered both kids breakfast they only brought one kid food had to ask for another order. Awfull servise. Will not be going back.

Cons: Not small kid friendly

Good food but too salty - Edit

The classic breakfast dish was a sizable amount of good food, but the potatoes were too salty for my taste; I would recommend you specify light or no salt. My boyfriend ordered the Chik'n Waffle and loved it though! We would go back if we're ever in the area again.

Pros: good service, friendly server , ample seating

Cons: too salty

Good - Edit

I ordered the French dip. It was very good but it was only bread and "meat". I wish there was grilled onions at least. My mom got the buffalo wings- they were soggy. It was basically tofu strips drenched in some type of hot sauce. The desserts (especially carrot cake & pineapple upside down cake) were super!!

purplesnowcone 27 Jul 2017 - French Dip sandwiches (Which used to be on the menu everywhere in almost every restaurant back in the old days) are traditionally just "meat" and the bun and some au jus to dip in. :)

Wow - Edit

My first visit but not my last. Took a long time to decide because everything sounded so good. Decided on the shredded seitan barbecue sandwich. I was happy with my choice. It was huge, so I took half of it home for later. I definitely recommend the Cornbread Cafe.

Pros: Very friendly staff, Great food, Huge portions

Cons: A little noisy, Somewhat crowded, They could use a larger space

You're crazy if you don't eat here - Edit

You are crazy if you don't eat here. These meat-free maniacs have not only prepared for you all your childhood favorites, they've made them better than ever! We had the Reuben, the Southern Plate and an effing Whoopie Pie, and every bite was stupendous. Our tummies feel so good, and our minds are blown. We kept looking over our shoulders and giggling because it felt so naughty. It is suggested in other reviews here, that it's not exactly health food. But it is good for you: for your soul, for your sense of childhood wonder, and for your day here, in Eugene.

Pros: Perfect service, Comforting atmosphere, Astounding

Cons: It is 2000 miles from our house

everyone loves this vegan diner! - Edit

We were visiting a friend for the weekend and ate here once for breakfast and once for diner. Both meals were fantastic. This isn't fancy or particularly healthy food, but boy is it good! The atmosphere is typical diner and you'll feel right at home.

Pros: huge portions, lots of variety, Sammy & Ammy breakfast sandwich
