My wife and I traveled to Stayton for a wedding and discovered this quaint little BNB. So happy we did! The owner took care of us from check in through check out, always attentive to our comfort and needs. The accommodations were warm and comfortable, just like being home. We stayed three nights and enjoyed our first experience in a... More

Went with a friend for lunch. The special was a Reuben with choice of corned beef, pastrami, or roast beef. The classic corned beef Reuben arrived fresh and hot and loaded with tasty, tender meat and melting cheese. And the award winning, sinfully delicious cakes mean ALWAYS save room for dessert, even if you have to share! The atmosphere in... More

The owner greeted us. He gave a tour of the restaurant. His father had been an astronaut and he had several pieces of memorabilia. His stories were entertaining. Our lunch was so good. The Reuben with red cabbage was great. 3 of us tried dessert. The coconut pie was out of the world. Their mango ice tea was delicious. Worth... More

Set in a charming historic home, the Gardner House Cafe is well worth stopping for. A had a smoked gouda tart with carmelized onions that was out of this world. The crust was buttery and perfect. My husband had a rueben sandwich that was excellent. Portions were just right for lunch. I'd love to go back for the desserts!

Gardner House is one of my favorite places to meet my friends for a light meal and a cup of tea. Their food is fresh and delicious. They have a large selection of tea. If you are in the mood to celebrate, you should look in to booking a high tea. Very enjoyable!

This is a quaint old building with a cafe inside that serves out of the ordinary lunch items. It's a perfect place to meet a girlfriend for lunch, which is what I did. The list of desserts is lengthy, so leave room. The iced tea was decicious. I live locally and only just discovered this place. It's lovely.

It is well worth getting off the main street to find the Gardner House Café at a quaint little B&B in Stayton, Oregon. I am spending six weeks with a friend who lives near here, and this is her favorite restaurant in town. This is the third time we have eaten breakfast or lunch at the Gardner House. Today we...

Our family has been here several times. Love the decor through the dining areas. The food has been very good on the multiple occasions we have visited at lunch. They have wonderful desserts so be sure to save room. However, sharing desserts is also a good idea. We definitely will come back.
