Nestled in the heart of the Willamette Valley, 90 minutes south of Portland, stands Corvallis, Oregon, the birthplace of the state’s famous puppet. The city attracts adventurers from across the state with its abundance of forest hiking and biking trails, but tourists often miss out on the city’s agricultural bounty. Surrounded by vineyards, breweries and farms, Corvallis’ food scene draws much of its inspiration and ingredients from the lands surrounding the town. At the same time, Oregon State University’s large international student population has helped sustain and grow a wide array of restaurants, food carts, and cafes. Taken together, Corvallis combines global and local to produce a multi-faceted food scene, not bad for a town of 60,000.
From bechamel crepes to pots of sizzling dolsot bibimbap, this map celebrates some of the best restaurants, food carts and cafes around Corvallis – plus a few notable spots near Philomath, for good measure. For more restaurants in the Middle Valley, see our Salem map.
