I'll admit it, I was slightly intrigued when I heard the new owners of Salem's Rock-n-Rogers were going to open a new location in the old Eola Inn building. Weren't you? When they revealed they would open in a few weeks, I knew little would be changed as far as interior decor goes. Fresh paint and carpet was about all there would be time to do. So when my friend and I were making plans on where to eat breakfast for our annual winter break get together, I suggested Rock-n-Rogers, but made a mental note to go strictly for the food.
When we pulled into the parking lot, I was pleased to see more than 10 cars. Once the waitress ringing another customer out at the cash register was finished, the two of us were seated . (I was so glad the musty smell from my last visit to the Eola Inn was gone.) She took us to one of the tables on the west side of the building, situated right in front of the large picture windows, with 4 well padded chairs.
Our coffee cups were filled and we began to try and keep our focus on the menus instead of our usual non-stop catching up. I decided to go with an item off of the "Breakfast Favorites" segment of the menu. I ordered the Mama's Mess Omelette, made with "4 eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, tomatoes, onions, green pepper and double cheese served open faced", and chose home style potatoes and a baked biscuit as my side. Friend Shirley, picked their Mushroom & Swiss Omelette, also with a biscuit and homestyle potatoes.
Our food arrived in just the right amount of time. Our omelettes were tender and fluffy, the nicely seasoned potatoes had just right amount of browned bits and the biscuits were oh so delicate, flaky and golden brown. Equally important, our coffee cups were kept full of fresh coffee by our sweet waitress.
I hope they decide to jazz up the interior with a Rockin' Rogers 50's theme. A few posters on the wall just isn't enough. In spite of that wee detail--go for their reliable comfort food menu, the service and that beautiful view.
