Eating breakfast for lunch or dinner can be an exciting change of pace, much like sunbathing at twilight or watching fireworks at noon. Shake up your feeding routine with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American comfort fare and drinks at the Glenwood Restaurant. This Groupon is valid after 3 p.m. at both Eugene locations.
Highlighted in the New York Times article "36 Hours in Eugene," the Glenwood pads empty bellies with an eclectic offering that ranges from bowl-you-over breakfasts to delicious dinners. Although the Willamette Street location serves breakfast until 5 p.m., the Alder Street location near the UO campus keeps the griddle going all day, serving up early-morning eats such as berry waffles with rich whipped cream ($6.50) and the Sierra Madre omelet, a classic egg omelet swaddling green chilies, melted jack and cheddar cheese, black olives, and sour cream, with a sidecar of salsa ($7.95). Lunch and dinner lovers tuck into tables with nourishing plates of tempeh stir fry, which calls together the power of stir-fried vegetables in peanut sauce on a bunk bed of brown rice ($9.50). The Dakota sandwich combines the majesty of South Dakota's Mt. Rushmore with the solid agricultural foundation of its northern neighbor in a towering monument of roast beef, melted Swiss cheese, sautéed mushrooms, and bell peppers on grilled sourdough ($6.25).
Patrons can oil rusty jaw hinges with warm espressos ($2.45–$2.95), white mochas ($3.50–$3.95), and Yerba Matte tea ($1.85) as they discuss the philosophical significance of the Three Stooges. Or flex your driver's license with an array of beer ($2.75–$6.75) and wine ($5.25–$6) choices.
- First place we tried when we moved to Eugene. Recommended by our friends, we were not disappointed. – Willamette Google Mapper on 6/22/2010
- Besides a campus atmosphere and a huge, fairly priced menu, the food quality sets it apart. It's always nice to see a focus on quality, and Glenwood does this…– Allison F., Yelp, 8/18/2010
“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.
