We recently visited this small restaurant and overall had a good experience. The staff was super friendly and, since the place is so small, will page you when a table is ready. We browsed the christmas ornament store next door, which is packed with stuff. The only complaint I would mention is that the eggs benedict has way too much... More

Husband and I got there 9am on Sunday morning. Plenty of room upstairs or down. 5 tables upstairs and 5 tables down so go early, no waiting! Split a Breakfast Bowl and it was plenty of food for 2 or you can order you own but you'll probably take some home! Home made biscuits! Loved the selection of breakfast choices... More

The food was excellent as was the service and the surroundings. The owner's son was our waiter and he is top notch.

My friends love Beignets and although I liked them, I never got it until yesterday. Little bites of heaven, rolled up in delicious! Had to go back today for more. Oh and lunch was great and affordable. Service was fast and friendly. Can't say enough good things about the Nelscott Cafe. You have to try it!!

Our group of 4 stopped at the café while driving through Lincoln City. The young owners who are running it (brother & sister) are doing an excellent job. Best eggs benny I've had in a very long time and the regular breakfast (sausage & eggs) was excellent too. They are super friendly and give fantastic customer service - even when... More

My best friend and I went to the beach for a girls weekend and my daughter recommended the breakfast at this very small cafe. I had the breakfast bowl and it was so delicious. The service was great and we tipped our waiter more than our tab. He was so appreciative and promised to share it with the cook (the... More

I was surprised to learn they did not have any GF or LF options available. However, they do have an extensive menu for your pup. My bad for not checking the menu prior to signing up on their wait list. The food is good but priced above what I expected.
