We decided to walk across this bridge after visiting the nearby Children’s Museum. Famous for their French toast, Sassy Onion is a brunch staple on the top of our list in Salem. My personal favorite is the cinnamon roll french toast, nicely coated with cornflakes and drizzled with frosting. But if that's not your thing, the menu here is vast so you're sure to find something to suit you.
Pastry Queen's rating: 9.7 out of 10 Riverfront Park makes a great place to hang out, enjoy a picnic, walk, jog, play, or attend a local event.

Smaller markets are also hosted at other locations on Mondays, Wednesdays, and through the winter (check the website for details).
Most recently, we devoured a giant savory crepe, fresh strawberry lemonade, and a pork burrito, then picked up cinnamon rolls, fudge, strawberries, and fresh vegetables to bring home. Yum!

Their aim is to provide the best possible coffee experience in every cup, which is why they’ve partnered with Stumptown Coffee Roasters.
Apart from the spacious coffeeshop and outdoor seating in the summer, there are also meeting rooms upstairs that are free to reserve online. Their emphasis on community-building is evident with special touches like a parent room, art and music from local artists, a space to feature community partnerships, and a commitment to giving back to the community.
