So my wife and I came here on Sunday Morning the 6th of April for breakfast. She had the basic eggs and bacon, I had the stuffed French toast with sausage patty. Now my wife's bacon was cooked till it was literally dead! I mean, is was hard as a rock, and almost inedible. I have never seen bacon served... More

Thank you for your review. I'll have to agree that Sunday the 6th wasn't our best day. We were much busier that expected and were short staffed. There's no excuse for you getting served sub par food however. I can only ask that if you're in our area again that you contact me, Don Williams, and I will happily treat... More

Well, the food was good, but nothing to write home about. I chose this restaurant based on the gushing reviews on TripAdvisor. I honestly don't get the hype. It's a cute little restaurant and the food is ok (I had the three egg omelet and country potatoes), but it's not spectacular in anyway. My partner said that the coffee was... More

We chose this small cafe based on other folks reviews. . . and they were not wrong. The Nelscott Cafe is a small "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant that delivers on delicious food and comfortable atmosphere. The home-style hashbrowns and french toast are wonderful . . well worth the effort to seek out this little gem. Not to mention some really quirky and... More

The Nelscott Cafe is a full service coffee bar surrounded by a very pleasant small lunch room featuring a variety of hamburger choices and other sandwiches and salads. They also hand out free treats to the K-9s who bring their owners over for coffee.

Really enjoyed our breakfast at the Nelscott. I had the French toast sampler. I had never had French toast like this, but now that I have, I want it again! One was the traditional style, one rolled in oatmeal and one rolled in almonds. My daughter's biscuits and gravy were delicious as well and my husband's ham and eggs tasted... More

My boyfriend and I came here for Sunday brunch before our long drive back to California. We are so happy we did! It was truly one of the best breakfasts I've had in a restaurant and hands down the best French toast I have ever had in my life. Almond crusted French toast=a little piece of heaven. My boyfriend also... More

My husband and I were in town for a much needed break and the food is always amazing here. Can not go wrong with anything on the menu. Fabulous service and food, what a winning combination.

Fabulous breakfast at this great little café. It's maybe small, but big on flavor, so clean, and the service is fast, and friendly. I had an English Toffee Mocha, and it was fabuloso. For breakfast I had the biscuits and gravy, and my husband had the Reef Wipe Out, he loved it! Can't wait to go back and try another... More

We visited here for breakfast after a really bad experience at Pig n pancake the morning before. Cute little restaurant with great service, good food and fair prices. As good as anywhere we have tried in Lincoln City.
