We popped over to Deb's a bit after noon on Sunday. We were hoping for a late brunch, but they had stopped serving breakfast and were only serving lunch. Eating on the deck was very pleasant. The Ruben sandwich is very good, as are the pies.

We had been told this was a quaint little restaurant. The burgers were cold and the service was disorganized and really poor. Getting drink refills was a nightmare. Many others in the restaurant seemed to feel the same.

I am sorry you felt writing this review was necessary. We all work really hard at giving the best service and food as possible. Sometime when little cafe's like this get busy, like everyone else, you have to wait your turn. Our food comes right out of the kitchen straight to your table. I am not sure how your food... More

De'bs is a typical small town diner with all the down home menu items. great for an inexpensive treat but as a surprise, they serve Siuslaw Brewing beverages which is a very small brewery. the service is good and the atmosphere very relaxed.

She is a one woman show in the kitchen. Her high school aged son... More

Deb's is a VERY small-town cafe that serves primarily "American diner" food. Although the quality varies (for no apparent reason) and the service can be slow, the breakfasts, clam chowder (Fridays), and burgers are the most likely to please. The website is YEARS out of date, so be sure to call and check the OPEN hours.

Just had an early dinner here tonight and it was 103 degrees here so the a/c was most welcome.. Salads were fresh and the dressing tasted homemade. Service was super quick and very (but not over the top) friendly. Fresh vegetables were better than I would make at home. Next time I will have the milkshake - it looked so... More

If you live on the coast, one has to go to Corvallis for any kind of specialized medical treatment. Usually, I take Hwy 34 and am in a rush to get to Corvallis so have never stopped at Deb's Place. I finally took the time last week and was glad I did. The chief cook and bottlewasher is Deb and... More
