Takoda’s

This weekend we went camping in the Three Sisters wilderness area, and while we did our fair share of hotdogs and smores, we decided to go out to lunch in “Rainbow” Oregon.  We thought it would be appropriate to take the boys to lunch in “Nimrod”, Oregon but there were no restaurants there.  So we ended up at Takoda’s. It was actually pretty good. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, they have a pretty good beer selection and cocktail list, very kid friendly, with a gift shop that has everything you don’t need but want to buy anyway (lots of candy and a great jelly belly selection).  We ordered burgers and Ruebens, and everything was very good. The service was great, everyone there is really nice, and Takoda’s is conveniently located next to the only grocery and gas station within a good distance!  Two thumbs up for Takoda’s!

Now this may not be the most kid friendly place in the Village – depends on the kid.  Lots of cool tea pots that could be broken, and the people in here just want to relax over some tea and food so it may not be for kids that can’t keep the decibel level down, but ours had a blast.  Aidan loves tea so we got him a pot of mint tea which he got to steep himself.  Lowell isn’t really a tea guy so he got some O.J.  This is the place to go for tea, whether you want to drink it there or buy it to drink at home.  Their selection is enormous (and the tea is pretty good too).  Aidan got the berry compote crepes – big hit, and Lowell got the finger egg salad sandwiches – twice.  Mom got the bagel and lox.  Everything was wonderful and the people there were very sweet to the boys.  Medley is a place that seems to encourage conversation, even with 8 year olds.  No distractions, just us and our food and tea.  Everything was delicious, and the dudes ended it with some pineapple carrot cake.  Dudes give it two thumbs up!!
