What I Have Learned
I have learned that sometimes our guests can teach me something about Oregon that I never knew!
Traveling from places like Cape Cod, Colorado and even France, recently our guests have had the opportunity to explore a bit of the Willamette Valley. Wine tasting in the most sought after region in the country and eating lunch at a really good roadside cafe can make for a perfect day.
Cafe 22 West is about 8 miles from Salem towards the coast. With yummies like Strawberry Belgian Waffles, Aunt Ida's Fruit Stuffed Pancake, Crepes, The 22 Deuce and Biscuits and Gravy, you can't pass it up. I tried the Veggie Wrap with Tots and Ray had a burger with fries. We kept watching people go by with bowls of strawberry shortcake and ice cream cones and wondering where in the heck they were getting those. Next to the cafe, is a fruit and vegetable stand/nursery/ice cream and shortcake stand. One owner for both the cafe and stand, sneaking back over to have a seat on their beautiful umbrella covered patio to enjoy your desert is no problem.
So, if you wanna come stay at The Pfeiffer Cottage Inn, wine taste in our luscious Willamette Valley, have a very yummy lunch, we can tell you that Cafe 22 West is worth the stop!
