Dining Guide

With close to 20 restaurants within a span of just a few blocks, McMinnville is a mecca for food lovers.  Many of these restaurants are award winning establishments that have found their way onto every foodies’ bucket list.

Dining in downtown McMinnville can be as simple as a sandwich or as extravagant as escargot. Whether its breakfast, lunch, dinner or something in between, there is a surprising variety available, from Italian food, Japanese sushi, pizza, coffee, ice-cream and salads, to Spanish tapas, Mexican, fine French cuisine and classic American fare. Here, you will be treated to delicious homemade meals and service that can only be found in owner-operated establishments where the owners themselves often greet you at the door – when they’re not back in the kitchen cooking!

Welcome to a place that cherishes good food, good wine, and the nurturing qualities of both. Many of our restaurants work with local farmers to raise produce and live stock to create the freshest, tastiest (second foodiest) downtown around. While local and sustainable have been hot trends in the restaurant industry recently, Nick's Italian Cafe has been working with local farmers since it opened over 30 years ago. Original chef and owner, Nick Pierano has passed the tradition to his daughter Carmen, and her husband, Eric Ferguson. Both trained chefs, Carmen and Eric, have added another element to their business by opening Fino e Fondo, a local salumeria.

Peruse our Guide to Good Taste for eating and drinking options.
