On a chilly November morning in McMinnville, Oregon, I was instructed to go and sample the coffee and breakfast scramble at the cozy and cool Community Plate.
They have communal tables that represent more than a place to gather with friends over food and drink. Instead, their hope is to champion community as the focus of all they do, from the ground up. The food comes from local growers and farms and there's an attention to detail in the space, the food, the presentation and the service.
When you're rolling through the beautiful Oregon wine country in the Willamette Valley, put the Community Plate on your list of must eats.
