Agate Alley Bistro offers a relaxed atmosphere for lunch, dinner or drinks
This Eugene bistro is great for lunch, dinner, happy hour or drinks. Agate Alley Bistro features two outdoor patios, as well as a large lounge. It gives off a relaxed but tasteful vibe and is a great place for couples, as well as larger groups or families.
This place has a variety of delectable Asian and Latin-inspired food. If you want a small snack to tide you over until dinnertime, Agate Alley offers its “Smaller Plates” menu which has small-portioned items such as coconut crab cakes, crispy artichoke hearts or calamari.
If you’re ready for lunch or dinner, Agate Alley provides an awesome array of sandwiches, seafood and pizza. Its prices range from $9 to $20. One highlight is the pulled pork sandwich filled with juicy barbequed pork and homemade coleslaw with cabbage and chunks of apple. The Olympus pizza is another standout with a thin, crisp crust topped with artichokes, Kalamata olives, red onions and goat cheese.
You will probably also want to check out one of Agate Alley’s famous cocktails such as the fruity Huckleberry Fizz with 44 North vodka and lime or the tangy Agate Lemonade with Absolute Citron, ginger syrup, lemon juice, pomegranate and soda.
