We visited here while on a family vacation. It was wonderful! Rustic, brick building with plank floors. Eclectic menu items. Excellent food and service. Walk through the archway into a great bookstore loaded with used books and interesting and odd gift items. Spend some time here, it is country comfort!

We came when Busters was closed for construction and Backstage was slammed with customers. The staff was kind and very fast paced trying to get everyone taken care of. The food was great and the atmosphere was great. Awesome vibe through and through - we loved it!

Smashing hit with ten guests enjoying food and portion size was perfect! So many restaurants give huge portions and it doesn't help with Americas obesity problem, so yeah to a restaurant that's normal and adding to our health as Americans! Wonderful meals and you bet we told all our friends!!! Thank you for great customer service too!!!!

Oh, the food is good, but the new owners cut the portions in half on the salads. This used to be my "go to" place but it isn't any longer.

Apparently this large edifice, I think known as the Burkholder Woods Building, was recently restored and has a commanding presence on the corner. I ducked in only to check out "Kalapuya Books," which nestles up to the Backstage Bakery & Café adjacent, not to eat. Kalapuya is clearly a book-lover's shop with a thoughtful and surprisingly large selection of secondhand... More

This cafe is located at the corner of 7th and Main in downtown Cottage Grove. It adjoins a small bookstore. The service is friendly and the food is good.

Backstage easily serves the best food in Cottage Grove. Everything I've tried has been great, and I've tried most of the menu. The biscuits are delicious as is the Hungarian mushroom soup.

Cute little bakery that opens up into a restaurant with attached bookstore. The Hungarian mushroom soup was excellent with added dill and tomato. The chicken salad sandwich also unusual with apple, cranberry, celery in the chicken mixture & added tomato, lettuce, etc. Very good value.
