The Vintage Restaurant in Eugene, Oregon, is situated in a lovely Victorian house on Lincoln Street along the eastern edge of downtown.

The Vintage Restaurant Menu
While The Vintage features traditional fare with some affordable options like burgers and sandwiches, they are probably the most well-known for their crêpes and fondues.
Crêpes: The Vintage’s light, airy crêpes are available with sweet or savory fillings. They offer quite a selection of vegetarian options, too. Whether you choose a savory European crepe filled with sautéed chicken, chevre, mushrooms and spinach, a Cheeky Chicken, California Club, or build a crepe of your own design, these delicious entrees are served with a fresh, crisp raspberry pecan salad.
Fondues: Fondue dishes are only served after 4:00 p.m. and offer a variety of choices to please everyone’s taste buds, including traditional Swiss, beer cheddar, blue cheese, or pepper jack served with fresh bread, vegetables, and apples for dipping.
Fondue is a star on the dessert menu, too. Sweet, mouth-watering chocolate fondue is available in dark, milk, or creamy white chocolate with tasty treats for dipping like strawberries and mandarin orange slices, creamy cheesecake, or salty pretzel sticks.
The Vintage restaurant offers a full bar that serves beer and local wine by the glass or bottle, but if you’re feeling adventurous, their list of Vintage cocktails are daring and delicious.
For instance, explore the Lava Rock. The presentation of this martini made with Midori and coconut rum make it look like a gourmet treat served in a martini glass with Pop Rocks coating the rim.
Whether you eat inside or out, The Vintage is a popular restaurant. It fills up quickly for the weekend brunch, so if you plan to visit at that time, be ready to wait for a table.
They open at 11 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. Wednesday through Thursday. Hours are extended on the weekend to accommodate earlier and later crowds. If you want more information, you can call them at 541-349-9181.
