We are locals who have been frequenting Block House for years - long before they opened in their current location. The food is great, but the service has gone slowly downhill over the years. After our experience today I can finally say we will not...More

We have had breakfast here a couple times since the last review and dinner last night. Food is great and service is so so. Since we know to pay at the counter is isn't a bother to us.

Great place to start your day. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly. Their sausage patties are yummy, and their cinnamon roll pancake was to die for!

We went there for lunch, and we were quite satisfied. Our server, Beth, was about as nice as a human being could be, and she brought the food without much wait. I ordered a BLT, and it was excellent. You know how they make BLTs...More

Went with a group of 15 ladies and everyone enjoyed their food. I really liked that they let us each come to the cash register to pay for our food instead of trying to split the check. I'm not sure if that's a normal routine...More

While this location is a bit off of the beaten path, they are a great casual cafe to grab a bite at. They are much less crowded than Red Hills Market and they have good variety. Their burger is the best in the area and...More

We had breakfast there which was very good and the price wasn't too bad. It used to be a church but was converted into a restaurant. It's quaint and cozy and we highly recommend it. We plan on going there again the next time we...More

The Block House Cafe is located in the Dayton First Baptist church constructed in 1886. The church has undergone a sensitive and meticulous restoration with an addition on the back (kitchen). The Block House Cafe serves breakfast and lunch with dinners and later hours on Friday nights. Come and enjoy our signature cinnamon roll pancakes or a hand pressed burger with local grass fed beef. Our espresso is locally roasted in Newberg, Oregon and all of our dishes are prepared fresh and to order.
