We've visited Cindy's Cafe too many times to count over the years and have never been disappointed, so its time to write a review.
Cindy's is the kind of place that just feels like home -- we are always greeted with a smile and made to feel welcome. Cindy genuinely cares about the customers she serves, and that shows in the food they prepare and in the attitudes of the wait staff.
Whether it's breakfast or lunch, Cindy's does it right.
The monstrous, plate-sized pancakes are not just big, but full of flavor as well. The cinnamon roll french toast are outstanding, too; and the croissant breakfast sandwich with fresh fruit is my favorite for when I want a little lighter fare. My wife loves their taco quiche, and orders it just about every time we go there!
I always have a tough time deciding what to have for lunch, as there are so many good options. My favorite sandwiches include the reuben and the #4 panini. The reuben is packed full of pickled goodness with lots of sauerkraut and piled with pastrami, all sandwiched between two pieces of perfectly toasted marble rye. The #4 panini has smoked turkey, avacado, red onion, and bacon; with bookends of focaccia.
The burgers are also excellent, with the Western BBQ being my favorite -- crispy onion rings, barbeque sauce and Tillamook cheddar on a juicy burger patty; all served on a bun that's up to the task. My 11-y.o. son always opts for the Tillamook bacon cheeseburger with french fries.
Cindy's soups are always really good, too. The Fiesta Chicken is one of my favorites, and the Salmon Chowder we had to day was outstanding.
Whenever we are looking for a place in the Molalla area to breakfast or lunch, Cindy's is tops on our list.
