Went in with a friend for early dinner. The very young female server was nice enough but several of the tables were un cleaned yet there was only 1 table with customers. It was slow. The server seemed un interested in general. We had to ask for silverware & request lemon 2x, plus the server sat at one of the tables in front of us & some new customers & left them sitting there for about 5-10 min waiting. Pasta tasted like what I would make myself in 10 min & sauce seemed like it may have been from a can. Appearance of the food was not so great either. I did like the decor though!

The owner is mean and hostile, not only to the staff but to customers as well. I personally cannot stand eating lunch while listening to her scream at her employees.

We've given this place multiple tries. Aside from the female owner being totally abrasive and rude the food is mediocre. Example: one of the few vegetarian choices for dinner is a garden wrap. Nothing special just chopped salad rolled in a tortilla/wrap. No special sauce, no special ingredient - nada. This was stuck in a plastic basket with paper - no pickle, no side relish, not even any dull chips or fries, again nada. For a price of $9.75. The burgandy walls and Fred Meyer wine theme wall decor don't make up for the service, food quality, or prices. We will not return and encourage others to think carefully before spending money here.

Good food and prices are ok. I go there because its a meeting place for locals. Nothing spectacular about the eats but there is a nice atmosphere. The owner seems a bit grumpy but the staff is nice.

My husband told me about this place that he was stopping to get coffee and finally I had the chance to go there with him for lunch one day.
I thought it was a great place. Nice atmosphere, great food and good prices. Will go there again!

Good food. Unfriendly serving staff.
Cases in point: No greeting when we walked in; Told to seat ourselves - two - and then asked if we were expecting others when we sat at a table for 4 (because, as the server rudely explained, "I'll be using the unused silverware for another table."); Told to pour our own half caff cup; Brought out two flavors of Tabasco (because, again, as the server rudely explained, "I don't know which one you want."); and the same server rang us up without saying a word until I opened my mouth. Her crummy morning really put a damper on our Old Town Cafe & Espresso dining experience. What a dud!

I happen to work at this place of business and I have read this persons complaint. I believe I was working the day this happened. And can say it happened as the owner stated. I think it's real nice for wifi users to have a place to hook up for a reasonable price, but I have seen exactly what the owner says happened, happen. I would and do recommend this place, I work in the kitchen and can tell you that the food is very good. Prepared by people who actually care about how the food tastes and is served. I have worked in a few places around the area and will not eat at some. We have a new chef and a new baker so things can only get better. UP UP and AWAY!! We love our custumers and I know most of them love us.

I just read the owner's response...wow...that is not what happened, I was told to leave, not relocate. Again, if you want good service and to be treated like a paying customer, there are plenty of great places in Columbia County to visit. You can read some of my other reviews on google and see it is not a mean spirited review, it was the truth. As a business owner I think it is important to accept your reviews and grow from it to make your business better, not make excuses.

I'm sorry...I have to rebut the review from the lady who was "told to leave."This young lady was seated at a six-top in the back corner of the dining room. When she arrived at around 4:00 pm, she was told by her server that the table she was had chosen was reserved for a large party that comes in for our Tuesday Senior Night. She was welcome to sit there, but she would have to switch tables or leave by 5:00 pm. She told the server that would be no problem and chose not to relocate to a different table.As usually happens, our Senior Night guests began to arrive early--they often begin to stream through the door at about 4:45. The owner of the restaurant then went back and explained to the young lady that the party for whom her table was reserved was beginning to arrive, so could she please move to a different table. At which time the young lady exploded angrily about being "kicked out," and left in a huff.We don't have a problem with customers using laptops at the restaurant, but it's an unfortunate fact that many computer users seem to think that the sole reason we maintain this big dining room is so that they can have space to set up their portable offices. They will occupy a table for hours--sometimes through two meal services--thinking their $4 cup of coffee has bought them that right. And they almost always set up at the biggest tables, the ones we try to reserve for larger parties. We have never "kicked anyone out" of the restaurant for using a computer. All we have to do is ask them to move to a more appropriately sized or located table, and they leave in a huff. And then post some nasty thing on the Internet so they can "get back at us."I hope people who read these kinds of mean-spirited and not-entirely-truthful reviews consider the source. If you're looking for a place to set up your portable office, Old Town Cafe might not be the best place for you. But if you're looking for good food, a pleasant atmosphere, and affordable prices, we'd like you to give us a try.

I was told to leave after being here an hour. Apparently they needed the space for other customers, which there were few of when I was told I could not stay longer.I was a paying customer that spent $4 for a cup of coffee and planning to get another cup for the road. I did not use their Internet service while I was there as I was working on a project on my laptop. Apparently they seem to think if you have a laptop, you are a freeloader using their free wireless. I have no problem paying for services that I use. I do however expect to be valued as a paying customer and not be treated as I a "freeloader" because I have a laptop. This place is a joke, there are better establishments in Columbia County to frequent!

This is a nice place to visit over a cup of Jo in downtown Scappoose. The food is moderately priced and portions are good. Just has a homey small town restaurant feel.
