Cornucopia at 17th is a little, neighborhood haunt with big personality and great, local food and drink. I love Corny's for breakfast but they also have a faithful following for their happy hour, beer garden, dinner menu and eclectic bottle beer lineup. The place is a throwback to the 70s in Eugene with it's unabashed decor or lack thereof, veggie options on everything and a mellow vibe which welcomes everyone coming through the door.
Corny's is family and pet-friendly, while maintaining a full bar and ample cocktail offerings. The food is fresh and fun. Pancakes come decorated with peace signs and smiley faces; huevos rancheros generously accompanied with guacamole and real sour cream. The coffee is a wonderful wakeup call after a night of Eugene frivolity. Happy hour is a three hour value that's hard to ignore in both the drink and food departments. When the weather is nice, read dry here, the patio is the place. The seating is limited inside and it's a great alternative to get in without a wait. Staff work wonders in keeping things cozy and unpretentious.
Corny's on 17th started as a convenience store serving the neighborhood. From delivery service to the daily specials, it has evolved into conveniently giving Eugene one more cool corner to call home. Bring a good sense of karma and a healthy appetite, you'll be delighted you did.
