I've been to Cafe 22 many times for burgers, fries and shakes!! Always excellent!! Decided to go for breakfast this time and was disappointed!! The coffee is great! We both had the prime rib hash, which was the daily special and it was very delicious!! The service is always top notch!! Highly recommend!

I've eaten at Café 22 many times but last night had something I hadn't tried before. I was not disappointed! I ordered the BBQ pork ribs. Meat was tender and moist and the BBQ sauce so delicious. For $17.50 you get a pretty large portion of ribs (I even shared mine) and two sides. I had the beans and potato... More

We drive by this place all of the time. So this time we decided to check it out for lunch. At first impression of walking in, it was way smaller than we expected! Service was a little slow and not very friendly. After we were seated it took forever for somebody to come back to take our order and when... More

If you are going to eat here -- whether indoors or outdoors -- you will need a high tolerance for noise. The traffic sounds from Highway 22 nearby effectively destroy the outdoor ambiance of a very nice patio area, and inside is even worse where the racket from the kitchen makes you feel like you are having your car serviced...

Went there around... More

Only open on weekends but worth the wait. Friendly and efficient staff take care of you and so does the food. Everything my wife and I have tried is good but make you try the ribs at least once. Hard to try other dishes after the ribs but its all good. Fresh berry deserts in season - homemade food from... More

we have been going back to cafe 22 ever since we found it.... We really love the fish, and the BBQ is amazing too. We really love the wait staff too, very friendly, fast and efficient, we tease our favorite that we are going to adopt her. The front is easy to miss, and to drive by without seeing it... More

Out stop at Cafe 22 was a total drive by. We were up in the area and elected to stop. The food was great. They provided a great homestyle meal. Where the difference was made for us is we had our dogs. The staff allowed us to sit in an outside area and brought our food out in to go... More

Haven't been here for a while. My wife and I stop by for breakfast and really enjoyed our meals. Customer service was wonderful looking forward to eating here again.

On the way to the Oregon Coast? I would suggest traveling west on Hwy 22 from Salem (you'll end up in Lincoln City) and stopping at Café 22 for breakfast. We've eaten breakfast there twice and have not been disappointed either time. The menu is good, the coffee hot, the bacon crisp and the homemade biscuits are amazing! Although we... More
