Brutke?s Wagon Wheel has been a key spoke in the Roseburg community for well over 50 years, and the decor speaks to its rich history. Mounted wall sconces cast a buttery glow on antiques such as farm-themed wall hangings, carved-wood furniture, and gas-powered butter churns. These cozy accents set the tone for time-tested American fare. The menu is a m?lange of homestyle favorites such as halibut filets, Northwest ground-chuck burgers, and of course, the Montreal-seasoned steaks?all locally butchered and aged for 28 days. Diners may also wash down meals with one of twelve beers on tap or a glass of imported red or white wine.
Translated from Latin, "Sine Cura" means "without a care", which is likely to be true of anyone enjoying a snack or a sip in this sun-dappled downtown Eugene café. Baristas brewing spice-enhanced, signature coffee drinks from organic beans roasted locally by Cafeto Coffee Company’s caffeine-breathing dragons. Made-from-scratch pastries rise each morning in Sine Cura's ovens, and the eatery's kitchen lovingly prepares a changing menu of savory breakfast wraps, gourmet lunch wraps, homemade soups, and salads drizzled with house-made dressings. Wide windows, warm wood floors, and artistically embellished walls make Sine Cura a perfect spot to sip chai with a friend or catch up on reading a sibling's diary.
Seven flickering flat-screen televisions beam down from the warm orange walls of Boulevard Grill, where tabletops prop up plates of steak and seafood. Sunlight pours in from high windows, illuminating bartenders as they dole out pints of nine different draft beers and goblets of wine and spirits. Beyond the main dining room, the bar branches out into five separate event rooms—including a 3,250-square-foot ballroom and a pre-function lobby—where guests can host private parties or complex games of hide-and-seek. The bar also hosts a weekly car-show event on Thursdays during the summer that encourages visitors to bring in their classic and unique automobiles for other patrons to admire.
“Every sort of person populating these parts can be seen at the cozy Glenwood Restaurant,” the New York Times says, nodding to the eatery’s popular menu of hearty breakfasts, sandwiches, and other American food. The chili verde brunch burrito—lauded by Sports Illustrated as “worth getting out of bed early for”—greets the day along with fruit waffles and denver omelets, and lunchtime brings tomato-cheese soup and paninis. Tempeh stir-fries with peanut sauce and brown rice join pasta genovese and steak and mushrooms at dinnertime, complemented by glasses and microglasses of wine and microbrews.
Juicy Berry's bounty of frozen-yogurt flavors changes frequently, tempting taste buds with yogurts that include vegan, organic, and nondairy options. At any given time, the selection may include flavors such as signature Asian tart, cake batter, pomegranate raspberry, and caramel, customizable with candy toppings and fresh fruit.
The Lasagna Cart’s straightforward menu of Italian favorites pairs fresh salads and sandwiches with a selection of interchangeable pasta ingredients to help diners build flavorful fettuccine Frankensteins. Forge an edible noodle-friend with fettuccine, angel hair, or spaghetti, then douse creations in creamy alfredo, pesto, or marinara sauciness ($5.50) before adding chicken ($2), meatballs ($1), or veggie accents ($0.50). Forego the creative process by ordering a classic lasagna entree ($7.50) or pacify sweet teeth with a slice of homemade pound cake ($3), which, like dollar bill origami, is made from scratch.
