The storied Otis Café, which burned down Independence Day 2019, is back in business Thursday, May 13.
The iconic restaurant in it’s new location, 4618 SE Hwy 101, Lincoln City, will be open seven days a week, 7 a.m.-4 p.m. serving up fan favorites, such as the German potatoes, black molasses bread, biscuits & gravy, chicken fried steak and buttermilk pancakes.
The eatery has drawn attention from thousands of travelers from across the nation and press pieces have been done by numerous publications, all because of the fresh, delicious homemade food.
Breads and baked goods are made on-site and food can be picked up with a new walk-up window. The new location offers a much bigger floor plan, allowing three times the seating capacity. Customers will see a familiar sight at the bar, where stools from the original building were recovered and put to use.
The England family is happy to be cooking again.
“Bread is baking and pies are in the oven,” Owner Jeff England said. “Hashbrowns are on the grill and we are looking forward to having everyone there.”
A new menu item was added as a salute to first responders. The super-spicy St. Claire Fire Station Omelette is a fiery addition that can be enjoyed by all, not just the firefighters working at the station with the same name behind the restaurant.
The England family said they would have loved to reopen in Otis because they “love the people and the location” but due to problems at that site, they chose to open in Lincoln City to get their food to people as fast as possible.
Don’t forget to order classics such as sourdough, whole wheat and pumpkin bread to take home with you from Otis Café’s bakery. And never forget the seasoning salt.
