JORY or The Painted Lady? Breakfast? Wine stores in WV?

SF hound here. My SO and I will be in the Willamette Valley the weekend of October 5. We're staying at The Allison Inn. On Saturday night we're going to The Joel Palmer House but I'm still on the fence for where to go for my birthday dinner on the 10/5.

Are there any stand out breakfast places we should try?

We'll be doing some wine tasting but was also wondering if there was a good wine market in the area?

Thank you in advance!

  1. Cornerstone Coffee in McMinnville is nice. Jory also does breakfast. Painted Lady is more intimate with very cosmopolitan styled food. Jory is bigger and beautiful with a larger wine program and food that can be great but PL is probably more reliably excellent. As far as wine shops go there's the Ponzi Wine Bar that has a selection of Oregon wines beyond Ponzi. After that there's not a tton of wine shops out in the valley.

      Thank you. Decided to go to Jory one night and the Painted Lady another. I'm very excited to check out the area.
