Willamette Wine Country eats?

I'll be driving around the Northern Willamette and need recommendations on places to eat. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Cheap-o, expensive, etc. I'll take it all. I'll be hitting up everything from Carlton to McMinnville. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  1. There are recent discussions you can search for. Try McMinnville, The Painted Lady, Bistro Maison. Those searches should find what you want.

    1. I'm a ig fan of the Fresh Palate Cafe, Amity Cafe, Tina's, and the taco place in Lafayette.

      1. If you find yourself in Salem, downtown specifically, try the Wild Pear, on State I believe. They close early, so lunch is the best time. They are reasonably priced and just about everything on the menu is good.

        1. Yes, do a search and you'll find plenty of comments.

          I like Dundee Bistro for something moderate.

          1. Tina's in Dundee. If you really like mushrooms to have to go to the Joel Palmer House south of McMcinnville in Dayton. Jack Czarnecki is a nationaly recognized expert. He changes what "Beef" Stroganoff is all about.
