If you are going to eat here -- whether indoors or outdoors -- you will need a high tolerance for noise. The traffic sounds from Highway 22 nearby effectively destroy the outdoor ambiance of a very nice patio area, and inside is even worse where the racket from the kitchen makes you feel like you are having your car serviced...

Have driven by Cafe 22 many times over last 5 years, always meaning to stop in. And finally did. Looked it up on Trip Advisor, said it was closed Th at 3pm and a review from 9/1/16 says only open weekends. NOT TRUE. I have posted a picture of the hrs as of 9/8/16. Also correct menus. Went there around... More

Only open on weekends but worth the wait. Friendly and efficient staff take care of you and so does the food. Everything my wife and I have tried is good but make you try the ribs at least once. Hard to try other dishes after the ribs but its all good. Fresh berry deserts in season - homemade food from... More

we have been going back to cafe 22 ever since we found it.... We really love the fish, and the BBQ is amazing too. We really love the wait staff too, very friendly, fast and efficient, we tease our favorite that we are going to adopt her. The front is easy to miss, and to drive by without seeing it... More

Out stop at Cafe 22 was a total drive by. We were up in the area and elected to stop. The food was great. They provided a great homestyle meal. Where the difference was made for us is we had our dogs. The staff allowed us to sit in an outside area and brought our food out in to go... More

Haven't been here for a while. My wife and I stop by for breakfast and really enjoyed our meals. Customer service was wonderful looking forward to eating here again.

On the way to the Oregon Coast? I would suggest traveling west on Hwy 22 from Salem (you'll end up in Lincoln City) and stopping at Café 22 for breakfast. We've eaten breakfast there twice and have not been disappointed either time. The menu is good, the coffee hot, the bacon crisp and the homemade biscuits are amazing! Although we... More

My husband and I stopped going to Cafe 22 a few months back because the last 2 to 3 times we were there the cajun chicken sandwich my husband ordered was always dry and usually missing the cajun seasoning, my tuna melt got more and more watery and soggy. The service was always good, I gave the rate of average... More

Saw this place on the way home from the beach and thought it looked interesting, so returned later for dinner. The place certainly isn't fancy, but the service was good and the food tasty and plentiful. We tried the french dip, the beef ribs, the bbq platter and a burger. All were very good! I've heard their breakfasts are also... More
