The Keystone Cafe in Eugene, Oregon
Wayne and I have a favourite breakfast stop when we travel to Eugene, Oregon, for sports events at the University of Oregon.
In the morning, we get up late and want a hearty breakfast to hold us over until dinner. Within easy walking distance from the downtown Hilton is the Keystone Cafe on the corner of Fifth and Lawrence.
The Keystone serves breakfast and lunch from 7:00-2:00 Monday through Thursday and 7:00-3:00 Friday through Sunday.
Even though it was a Saturday, we got immediate seating. We were invited to help ourselves to coffee from the self-serve bar while we waited to give our order to the helpful waitress.
I opted for my favourite, biscuits and gravy. Wayne had the Eggs Benedict with crispy bacon, spinach, and tomatoes. I snitched a few of his crispy homestyle potatoes to go with my leftover gravy. Yum!
The service was great considering how busy it was. Of course, it was filled with lots of locals and a table of women dressed in roller derby shirts. Stay tuned for more about that later. -- Margy
