Eats & Treats Cafe is a dedicated gluten free eatery serving up just darn good comfort food and serious BBQ in a relaxed, friendly setting.
We stopped in after a trip to Newport, and had an excellent meal. They normally aren't open on Mondays, but they were because of the solar eclipse events. They had a special of pulled pork with all the fixings, and it was really excellent. Tasty and a reasonable price. Even had a nice chat with the owner

Large, creative donuts and decent prices, especially if you catch them during a promotion. More variety than Dunkin or Krispy Kreme. While there are glazed yeast donuts available for the unadventurous, you'll want to try one of the unique offerings here. The maple old-fashioned is ridiculously good, as well as the buttermilk bars. This year for my husband's birthday I didn't even bother with a cake; I just stuck candles in a dozen from Nutcakes. Francesco's Gelato in downtown Corvallis is also selling Nutcakes now (!!!).

At the Farmstand, we highlight fresh exquisite produce at its absolute best. The care that goes into our produce is the same care that goes into producing our menu. We prepare our menus and dishes with deep respect for the European tradition of peasant cuisine. We work with our hands. We make our own pasta. We bake our own bread. We make pates, mousses, terrines, hams, and sausages. Some items will be familiar and some will be an adventure. All dishes will be crafted thoughtfully with respect to the land and local businesses.
The whole time they have been serving outstanding luncheons and dinners, we have never been in on a Saturday for brunch.
Today we went in around half past eleven and we were seated within ten minutes.
Our orders were taken soon thereafter. Our wait time for our meal was unfortunately close to forty five minutes. We had one order of breakfast eggs, gravy and potatoes, and one order of eggs benedict. The freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee were also part of our order. The meals were expertly prepared and presented. The wait was terrible, but the meal was top drawer farm to table.

Ordering from out of town for a special occasion is always a quandary, especially for our son & his housemates OSU Graduation night BBQ big event. However, Jill the Bakeshop's owner couldn't have been more helpful over the phone, explaining the different selections for 4 dozen Mini Cupcakes, offering to add fun sprinkles to our Chocolate & Vanilla Buttercream frosted cupcakes and coloring the Vanilla frosting a beautiful orange to echo the University's Beaver colors: black (chocolate) and orange. Is there anything so gratifying as small, rich flavors topped by true "butter cream" frosting? They disappeared in NO time flat!
Hmmmm, should have ordered 6 dozen...

The food and service were great. Don't judge the exterior or for that matter, the interior is a bit rustic.
3 in our group had Thai food and all were very happy with their selection. The food was prepared correctly with delicious flavors and spices. We were warmly welcomed and the service was very good. When we left, the owner thanked us for coming in and wished us a good day.
The serving sizes were very large. We ended up serving items family style, i.e. passing the platters around. There was still food leftover to bring home--enough for another meal. The pot-stickers were among the best ever and the coconut shrimp, delicious.
Wonderful lunch with our daugher and son-in-law. Very good Thai food and excellent bacon cheeseburger. Fries were also very good.
Although we arrived for a late lunch, the restaurant was still quite busy. There is a family section where children are welcomed. This section was pretty full so we opted to eat in the bar area. The mix of guests, all ages, was interesting--everyday people, some well dressed and some not so much so.
I would have probably given this restaurant a 5 except for the environment. It needs to be spruced up a bit. I know that is is a tavern with excellent Thai food. The bar appeared to be well stocked.

The inside is a bit dirty and the employees are always covered in what looks to be pretty gross food. However, the ice cream tastes like any other DQ and we do go there for treats occasionally.

Friendly helpful service for a reasonable sized group. Nice to have a tap house in Philomath!
We were given brand new mini-menus just after we ordered. They were going to expand their menu. If I'd gotten the new menu sooner, I might have ordered a wrap. As it was I had ordered a burger - and it was delicious! Don't remember which one. Everything was good.
We'll go back without the group.

Family owned and operated with several locations, this one was my first. Consistent high quality and you get plenty for your money, plus friendly atmosphere makes this the favorite of most of this town. Best pico I have ever tried.

The owners have three restaurants of the same name, the one above, plus one at 1320 SW Fairway Avenue, Dallas Oregon, and one at 33452 Havlik Road, Scappoose, Oregon. It's been in the Philomath location for several years.
Hubs and I eat at Ixtapa quite often. We are originally from Southern California and Mexican food is part of our DNA. Thank goodness this place is close.
It's a cute restaurant in a shopping center centered around a True Value. The dining room is nicely painted with a variety of Mexican scenes. There are plenty of booths with tables for larger groups.
The menu is extensive - almost too much. Salads, combinations, seafood, etc. Some of the items have pictures which helps. Full bar with some inventive drinks as listed on the cards on the tables.
Food is above good, but not great (we've had better in Southern California), but this is the best Mexican restaurant we've been to in Oregon so far. Salsa is fresh. It has the best refried beans I've ever had - and I've had a lot. Portions are generous.
We've not tried the seafood or the mixed drinks, so we can't comment on those.
Service is professional, but not particularly friendly. I think they could do better in this regard.
- They have a nice lunch menu good for all days they are open
- Menu says they charge extra for a chip refill (I think this is cheap). Additional salsa can be requested.
- NOT open for breakfast

I love the Human Bean normally, but the stand in Philomath is great! The employees are friendly, carry on a conversation with you as they make your drink, and are fast but spot on with flavorings.... so it's not that sugary buzz, but instead a great coffee experience.
