I love the soups, and too often can't resist the desserts, baked on-site, They use fresh local ingredients which I like.

Our B&B manager recommended this restaurant and it was wonderful. We had the Curry, coconut, butternut squash soup. So delicious. And the Salmon, wild greens salad. The people were so friendly. Food was delicious and fast. Thank you so much.

We found ourselves in downtown Salem for a couple weeks and had many choices in dining for lunch. Our favorite was the Wild Pear. The salads were excellent and the bread that goes with it was super. It is a cozy place but the service is quick and they have tables for various sized groups. You can even sit at... More

Ordered to go, the restaurant was packed! Always a good sign. We ordered a pizza, club sandwiches, Asian wrap, truffle fries, French dip sandwich.. everything was delicious. The staff was very friendly. The wait was long but worth it!
