This Bright Red Restaurant Has Been A Oregon Favorite Since 1989
If you’re traveling along Highway 18 through Otis, blink and you might miss one of the most beloved and tiny restaurants in Oregon. The Otis Cafe is a longstanding local favorite. It gained national notoriety long after its opening in 1920 through an unexpected
New York Times article published in 1989. Since then, this tiny but mighty restaurant has been a favorite for Oregonians across the state when they pass through town on their way to the coast.
Recognizable by its red exterior and prominent sign, Otis Cafe serves homestyle comfort food in an old-fashioned atmosphere.
Grab a coveted spot at the counter, in a booth, or at a table. Seats are prized possessions in this tiny restaurant that only holds approximately 30 diners.
While the diner may be small, you can expect hearty portions for a fair price. Enjoy overloaded omelets and overstuffed sandwiches that will fill up even the hungriest of customers.
The freshly baked bread is a staple of the most delicious kind. You can even purchase it by the loaf to take home with you.
The German potatoes are famous for miles and served with white cheddar cheese and green onions. This savory side is the perfect complement to any breakfast offering on the menu.
Enjoy breakfast from sunrise to sunset; Otis Cafe is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. And if you like pie, there are plenty of made-from-scratch choices that easily double as breakfast or dessert.
You'll also find a yummy selection of sandwiches (also on their homemade bread) filled with all of your favorite ingredients. Steaks, soup, salad, seafood, and more all have spots on the menu and not a single one is lacking in the flavor department and come highly recommended from previous diners.
It may have been a newspaper article that brought this spot to the national limelight decades ago, but locals knew long before that this restaurant was something extra special.
