Community Plate


Service counter

My wife and I were passing through McMinnville recently after visiting the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum. We found this cafe online and decided to have lunch here because the reviews were very impressive. My wife’s son and his girlfriend were also with us. Walking in around 1.30pm we could see the place was packed out . . . good decision ! This eatery had more the feel of a brew pub to me but hey I love brew pubs.

My latte

We lined up at the service counter and a charming young lady named Jade took our order for 2 Lattes, a Kombucha and 4 different grilled sandwiches . . 2 x Mushroom & Smoked Gouda ( one with side Salad and one with Fries ), 1 x Roasted Turkey & 1 x CP Veggie Burger. A lovely barista named Emma made and then brought our lattes to our table. They use Coava Coffee Roasters here and our lattes tasted excellent !

My Smoked Gouda

Our 4 grilled sandwiches came out very quickly and looked fantastic. We all agreed that our grilled sandwiches tasted outstanding . . fresh and wholesome ! There were a lot of other items on the menu which looking interesting plus they have a decent selection of craft beer, wine & cocktails as well. This is without a doubt an excellent spot for great food, well made coffee and friendly service. The place feels good too !
