Food

There’s nothing quite like a good meal, especially when travelling. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite, a sweet treat, or to sit down and enjoy a decadent culinary experience to remember for years to come, there’s a little something to suit everyone’s tastes in the Willamette Valley. 

  • Right downstairs from your flat, pop into The Bramble Tasting Room for delicious small plates to accompany a glass of their Silas label Pinot Noir or Pinot Blanc.   
  • The Amity Bakery and Cafe is right next door and offers tempting sweet treats as well as delectable breakfast and lunch offerings.
  • A half block down Trade Street you’ll find a variety of espresso drinks and a mouth-watering menu of waffles at The Common Cup
  • Also a half block down Trade Street, try Tacos Burros for delicious and economical tacos, burritos and tortas. 
  • Locally-sourced, sustainable and farm-fresh, you’ll find the menu at The Blue Goat to offer a true Pacific Northwest culinary experience. “The Goat”, as we call it locally, will also prepare delicious box lunches to take on an excursion.
  • At Blue Raeven Farmstand, they believe the best pies start with the best local berries. Based on the taste of their freshly made pies, we’d have to say we agree. Their jams, jellies, and syrup also make great souvenirs. They have a tempting menu of sandwiches and other casual food.
  • At The Brigittine Monastery and Confectionary, you’ll find award-winning artisan hand-swirled fudge and hand-rolled truffles. And yes, The Brigittine Monks make these delectable chocolates. Pick up a single truffle to go, or build a box of your favorites to take back to your flat.
  • Some of the larger local wineries offer delicious food to pair with their world-class wines.  Brooks Winery fires up its wood oven for pizza every Friday and their chef creates an ever-changing array of small plates to pair with wine, available every day. Failla Wines offers a seasonal menu of sandwiches, salads, and snacks to pair with their current release flight of wines during their weekend business hours (available to walk-ins or by appointment on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-5pm).  Menus change weekly – please contact janelle@faillawines.com for the current menu or call us at (503)391-5555. 
  • And don’t forget, there’s a gas barbecue on the deck at Amity Flats and most of the flats have well equipped kitchens.  If, like owner Barb, you enjoy creating your own culinary delights from fresh, local produce, you’ll be delighted by the options.  You’ll find the tempting local ingredients you need at the Blue Raeven Farmstand, the McMinnville Farmer’s Market (open Thursdays 12-6 through the summer), the Farmer’s Market at the Grange (open year round, 10-2), and periodically at a quaint stand called Two Fox Farm, run by some dear friends of ours near the corner of 99W and Bethel Road.  Roth’s grocery, in McMinnville, specializes in local produce, much of it organically grown, and they have a very good selection of meat and seafood.
