Marvelous selection of breakfast items. Servings are plentiful & sumptuous! They also have a bar that puts out a large Bloody Mary. Each food item is unique and some even have a story; like the forever fries.

We've been to WOM before and loved it. We're on a winter break from AK and as we pass thru Salem, we always try/stop at WOM. This year we hit a 2:45 wait. We weren't going to wait.

Always busy because: 1. Food was fantastic! 2. Service was fast, friendly, and fantastic! 3. Décor and layout SO COOL! ... well, you get the point. Just go. If there's a wait, then wait. It's worth it.

This is the best place to eat in Salem Oregon. The wait is long, but so worth it. Go there for breakfast or lunch, you can thank me later. The End.

This place is incredible. I keep thinking I'll order something different but can't get past ordering the créme brulee French toast. It's delicious. The only drawback is the long wait to get a table. Servers, atmosphere and food have been wonderful each time we've visited.

If you want good food for breakfast or lunch this is the place for it. The service is great as well as the food. The only down size (maybe a plus) is that it is small. So if you don't mind waiting a bit ---- go for it,
