The Washburne Cafe
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It’s been a hot minute since I shared a local brunch place and today I wanted to share a place that is near and dear to me. The Washburne Cafe is located in a yellow brick building in downtown Springfield off Main St. When I first moved to Eugene, I was in search of other fellow bloggers.
This is before the era of Brunchinista and before any other bloggers other than myself were in the Eugene area. In hopes of finding other bloggers, I searched around Instagram and found my dear friend Cherein. We decided to to meet up for brunch in Springfield at a cute little cafe, The Washburne Cafe. Fast forward to now and my how much this cafe has changed, almost as much as I have since moving here. When I first went in, the cafe only featured pastries, versus now they have a full menu, cocktails and beer on tap!
I was so happy to see how much it’s come along since I moved. It made me realize how much everything around me has changed. The cafe has a full display of PNW trinkets and things all against a red brick wall. I honestly wanted to take some of the pillow they had for myself to put in my loft.
The food menu is expansive with waffles, a tostada, pulled pork sandwich and more! The waffle was the weekend special which came with homemade hazelnut syrup.
I usually get coffee whenever I go to a cafe but I’m currently on a coffee hiatus and went for the dragonfruit kombucha! So delicious! My boyfriend opted for a mimosa with freshly squeezed orange juice.
I opted for the Brioche Roll Sandwich. Seriously the roll was what made this sandwich! Fried egg, Tillamook sharp cheddar, tomato, greens, avocado, bacon and sriracha mayo.
In addition we had the cinnamon roll on the side. The food was vibrant and delicious at a reasonable price. We were surrounded by families and people of all ages. My favorite part? It wasn’t SO loud that we couldn’t have a conversation. I have found this in many places around town where the noise is so loud and it’s so busy you can’t really enjoy a conversation. The industrial open space allows for a lot of seating and for great conversation. It’s a total win in my book.
Special thanks to Washburne Cafe for having me! I definitely plan to go back. And next time I’ll be grabbing a latte and maybe a beer tasting next door for some Sunday Funday brew drinking.
