I have been to Cafe Murrayhill many times for weekend brunch and have always been pleased. It's great to have a non-chain option on the west side and I've always been very happy with the food and service for brunch. My absolute fave is

I recently moved to the west side of town after previously being located in Alberta and had a chance to try out Cafe Murrayhill this past weekend. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised! I'm a pretty picky eater myself, but I found my omlette to be cooked perfectly and the wait staff was great. If you're out here in the Beav, I'd highly recommend that you try Cafe Murrayhill..it's definitely the best Beaverton breakfast that I've had so far!

I am familiar with the breakfast and lunch menus at Cafe Murrayhill, but until recently, had never stopped in for dinner. They serve dinner seven nights per week from 5 p.m., to 9 p.m.It is a "cafe" in name only. I discovered it is

6 months or so ago, I would have given this restaurant a much higher rating. The food was wonderful and unique, with fresh ingredients and wonderful service. The menu was small, but the attention to detail was superb. The tomato basil soup is heavenly and so is the butternut squash ravioli.

That being said, something changed. A new chef? New Management? Budget cuts? One can only wonder. My husband and I have been going to Cafe Murrayhill (along with all of our neighbors) for a few years and we all have noticed a downhill slide in the quality of food, service and overall atmosphere of this once gem in a sea of chain restaurants. The last time we dined there, our service was subpar, I got the wrong egg dish and my friend ordered crabcakes, that had large chunks of carrots in them. Carrots are a unique touch to crabcakes, but it seems clear to us that shredded carrots would be a much better add to the texture of a crabcake. Who wants chunks of carrots in anything? It seemed like more of a timesaver then a carefully thought out ingredient, which is what Cafe Murrayhill used to be known for.

The service was also very slow, it took forever to get ketchup that we asked for and we had to search out our own salt and pepper shaker (after asking the waiter for both items, we got an eyeroll and he never came back).

At least the wine list is the same, which is very good and reasonable priced. Portions of wine by the glass are also better then most restaurants.

Also, in this day and age, a gluten free dish or 2 would be a welcome addition. I have many friends and family who do not eat gluten and I would not take them here for that reason.

I happened along this place with my wife and son while taking a walk around the little lake and enjoying the geese and ducks. There is road noise from Murray, but it was nice to have a little oasis to enjoy.

Maybe we haven't been there during the busiest meal times, but we have never waited for a second to get a table.

The first visit, we had burgers and onion rings and they were awesome. SO incredibly superior to anything I've had at any of the chains around here. On a subsequent visit, the Onion Rings were not on the menu, but I mentioned how much I enjoyed them and they said, "no problem, we can whip some up for you." I didn't even ask, they offered without hesitating. To me, that is "Wow!" service.

Other places I enjoy with equal quality and service around Beaverton include Typhoon! and The Hall Street Grill and I find Cafe Murray Hill even better.

My wife and I went to Murray Caf today. I was excited to take her their after one of my clients wanted to meet their for breakfast and I had the Sausage Hash. Going on Sunday you need to be patient because it is a popular place in Beaverton. We waited 20 minutes for a table and 25 minutes for our food once we ordered. The wait person let us know it would be a while and offered biscuits, we declined. My wife ordered the bacon waffle and I ordered the sausage hash again. She like the he waffle, although I though $9 for sausage and eggs was a bit spendie. However, I was very disappointed in my sausage hash. Lot??s of potatoes and little to no sausage. It was a big disappointment to my first visit. I will probably go back, but I will let them know when I order about my last experience.

Cons: Its Not Price Valued

Love their breakfast. The atmosphere is relaxed and I like that it overlooks the pond. Good sized portions and not totally expensive.

I had breakfast there recently and was disappointed. The menu was limited and on the expensive side. Honestly next time I'd go to Starbucks for a microwave sandwich.

Love this place, we eat here all the time. It is kid-friendly especially during lunch hours. For just over 5 bucks you get a kids entree, side (fruit, salad or fries) drink and ice cream. The food is delicious, unique, and homemade. They also have a couple of good vegetarian choices.

The location is nice, overlooks a nice duck pond (which is also great to take the kids to after or while you wait). At dinner time the atmosphere is nice enough to feel like you're going somewhere a little more special.

My wife and I eat out frequently and found this little gem a few months ago. To be honest we thought the name would lead us to a sandwich type shop. Boy were we surprised. This is not your typical Cafe by any means. We have eaten there all three meal periods and tried several menu items. Not everything was 100% to our liking but the Butternut Squash and Gorgonzola Ravioli is to die for. Not to mention the Wild Coho Salmon. Our kids love the breakfast there. It is a little small and sometimes the wait can be a little longer than normal but we still feel it is well worth it. The staff is friendly, and we even have had a visit to the table from the Exe Chef on more than one occassion. We think he may be new. Not sure why this place has been a secret for so long.

It has a great view by the man-made lake and interior design goes well with the surroudnings. In the past, I visited this place a couple of times and had poor service. So I didn't go back for a while. However, my friend gave me Passport card as my birthday present and Murrayhill Cafe was on the list. So I decided to give it another try.

First of all, I would go to Murrayhill Cafe for brunch or maybe lunch. Not a dinner place in my mind but the Passport card only works after 3pm during the weekends for this restaurant.

We ordered crab cake egg benedit and stuffed french toast. Those were rather high ends on their menu. Egg benedict was ok. But the potato on the side was extremely greasy and burnt. The stuffed french toast was also burnt outside.

I expected much better quality of food for the price but it wasn't worth it at all. It just reminded me again that I shouldn't go back to this place.

It's tough to find a decent place to eat in Beaverton that is not fast food or a pub. I've had breakfast, lunch, & dinner and they were all delicious! I recommended the turkey sandwich & tomato citrus soup!

Went there friday night and the place was packed. We had the crab cake appetizer and it was the best I have ever had. Very fresh and simple. It was coated in crispy corn flakes and served with mango salsa and a coconut curry sauce. The wait staff was very knowledgeable about the food and wine which shows me they care and enjoy it as well. Our entrees were superb. We had a scallop rissoto with spring vegetables and flat iron steak cooked perfectly medium rare. I will be in again to try their breakfast.

I've been here three times, the first time I loved the food but my husband wasn't too impressed. Second time a friend and I had lunch and we both really enjoyed our lunch, soup and sand, but the dessert, strawberry shortcake, was terribly dry and we couldn't even eat the one piece that we bought to share. But the waitress did deduct 1/2 the price of the dessert since we ate a few bites of it so I appreciate that gesture. The last visit was for dinner with my husband and kids. Neither of us liked our meals and the bill was rather high, esp since we didn't really like our food. So, I'm not sure what the deal is but they do seem to be rather inconsistent with their food quality. It could be that they are just more proficient at certain (more simple) items because those are the ones that seemed to taste the best.

I visited this restaurant on a whim with a friend of mine - she had been there before and enjoyed their breakfasts but had never experienced their dinner menu. We were delighted. The atmosphere inside is a little stark but charming, and we sat outside on the patio and thought it was delightful. Our server was knowledgeable about the wines and the menu, and we had no trouble picking out some delicious choices from their simple but creative menu.

I enjoyed the butternut squash ravioli with Beringer chardonnay (normally not a choice of mine but the server recommended it and it was wonderful). I loved it - a generous portion of everything, including lots of delicious gorgonzola, and our server even brought us a sample of the day's soup to try with our meal. My friend had the Cobb salad and raved about it - lots of goodies on it, which sometimes Cobb salads can be light on.

Prices were very reasonable (both of our dishes were $11-$12). Our dessert was the vanilla bean cheesecake (made in house) with berry compote. Delicious - definitely not to be missed if you go there. This was a wonderful, charming restaurant with personable staff - it was a pleasant, simple and wonderful meal all around.

We went here for dinner last night and it was horrible. Well, the server was very nice and attentive, but the food and wine was terrible. I had the clam linguine and my husband had the macaroni and cheese. My clams tasted like they had been steamed in water and very little seasoning, and then thrown on the linguine with the water. His macaroni and cheese tasted horrible and upset his stomach all night and this morning. We also got the antipasto platter for an appetizer and even that was not good. It was the biggest waste of $60 I have ever experienced. We used to enjoy going there for breakfast, but lately the breakfast has not been very good either. Hard potatoes, poached eggs with hard egg yokes and sub par bacon.

Murrayhill Cafe started off as a breakfast & lunch joint, but they have recently started serving dinner. I've ordered the french toast, butternut squash raviolli, and grilled chicken sandwhich on cibatta with pears and goat cheese. My husband has had the french toast, hamburger and club sandwhich. The flavor combinations tend to be a bit on the unusual side, but work together very well. The staff is very knowlegable about the food and the wine list. They all seem to have tasted the food and seem like they appreciate food. The prices are very reasonable (roughly $8 - $18 for an entree) for the quality of food that you get.
