Fun place! – I went for breakfast on a Sunday with my mum and we had a blast. The food was yummy (veggie omelet and a couple of mimosa's) , the server was very friendly and funny as hell. We sat at the bar because it was so crowded but I think we had one of best sets. All the people we sat around were friendly and we ended up chatting with them all. The prices were great too.
Best breakfast I've had at a restaurant in a while – I really enjoyed my food. At first I was a little skeptical because of how trendy the place looks. It is very nice though. One complaint is it was absolutely freezing when I was there. Could have just been that day, but I've heard from others it is usually cold, so bring a thick coat. I ordered a breakfast burrito (with black beans) and it was very good. The flavor was good and I could tell they use quality ingredients. The service was also attentive and friendly. I'd recommend it for breakfast anytime... I am not sure about lunch but my experience for breakfast was very good.
Frequent Customer Very disappointed – Always a perfect five until today. It wasn't that crowded...we got seated right away and thats where it stopped. Five tables were seated and served coffee after we had put our menus down. There were empty tables. No one acknowledged us - ignored us as they walked by. After 10 minutes maybe more without even an offer of coffee or acknowledging us, we got up and left - my wife told one of the servers why we were leaving and he shrugged as if he didn't care.
Food is always awesome; disappointing that we had to go to the M and M cafe - the service there was extrordinary. I will put up with the smoke for the better service.
Sorry Central Cafe, I was one of your best customers and word of mouth advertisers. Too many other good restaurants in town to give you a second chance. I don't like to feel ignored.
WOW! – This place is great! They do everything right on. The elbow room their martini bar is excellent as well. A definite gem in gresham.
Great for Sunday Mornings – Being from San Diego, I loved this place with the Hamburger Mary's surfboard on the wall (a favorite from California). Though it may take a bit to get your food it is well worth the wait. The french toast is doughy and delicious, the chicken apple sausage is a great twist to a favorite breakfast. I highly recommend this place as a great place for Sunday morning hangovers that crave hashbrowns and eggs. I appreciate the staffs edgey personalities and getting my coffee creamer in a baby bottle
Fantastic Breakfast Place – My girlfriend and I have been there at least 15 times, and it is always good. The breakfast potatoes are the best around. I have eaten at all the breakfast joints in Portland, Zell's, The Tin Shed, Bijou, Cup and Saucer, etc..., and the Central Cafe easily holds it's own. Carla's Scramble is our all time favorite. And the service is good as well.
Nothing wrong, everything right! – I stopped in with a friend of mine, and for downtown gresham, this place is a place to go if you want good food at reasonable prices. ~CH
None Better – This is not only the best breakfast place in East County, I think it is the best in the entire Portland area. Fast, friendly service with excellent food cannot be beat!
Best French Toast in Town! – By far the best breakfast in East County! This was formally the Mt. Hood Cafe' and was bought by Rob Meeker a little over a year ago and has seen an amazing facelift. Each time you step through the doors the only thing that remains constent is the smiling faces of the fine people that work there and the wonderful food. It stops there. Rob gets very creative with his decorative choices. One day you may see a Surf Board hanging from the ceiling, the next day it may be car parts from years past. Whatever it may be it is a fun and welcome atmosphere to go with some amzing food. Lulu, the head cook, has almost as much personaility as she does tasty recipes. Highly reccomend Central Cafe'
