An Honest Chowhound Cafe in Eugene...

Bluenose | May 29, 200209:26 PM    

Humble Bagel Cafe on Hilyard is inside the Bagel company on that corner. The cafe opens four nights a week with its owners cooking and serving. Jill is an accomplished chef with classic training and lots of experience. She combines authentic, ethnic cuisines which easily cross cultures. Her products are honestly, vibrantly spiced and remarkably fresh. She tends to favor Middle Eastern and Jewish styles. I think her strongest dishes are pastas. Vegan entres are available. As you'd imagine in a bakery cafe, their breads are wonderful. Prices are very modest, a real bargain compared to Zenon.

Gary serves and hosts. His international wine list offers tough choices because they're so well priced--nothing over twenty dollars and by-the-glass for less than five! There's a nice selection of brews on tap.

The cafe is mostly frequented by locals and students on budgets, always a good sign. It's quiet and modestly furnished, quite homey and comfortable. Once in a while there's a local musician. The night we were there a xylophonist who teaches at the University played.

It's a true bargain!
