Venti’s Cafe is an energetic establishment in the heart of downtown Salem at 325 Court St NE, Salem, OR 97301. Serving Salem since 1996.  We pride ourselves on good, clean food, an inviting yet edgy atmosphere, and a commitment to unique flavor, attitude and culture.

We moved from our original location (in the Reed Opera House) in summer of 2008. Our downtown Salem location is bigger and allows for a full kitchen and a full basement bar. We like to say we “crossed the road.”

While we serve lots of meatless options, chicken teriyaki is the core of our offerings — the original rice bowl at the Reed Opera House was served w/ skewered chicken. By cafe owner Dino Venti’s account, he has prepped 50 tons of chicken. In honor of that feat we redesigned our logo to pay homage to the chicken. The rooster logo is a nod to the glorious cock, an animal loved for its power, boldness and beauty.

Venti’s strives to carry unique microbrews and ciders. At our downtown location, we have four taps upstairs and six taps downstairs and the selection changes as soon as a keg blows. The local beer-drinking crowd is enthusiastic and often gets to help select the next keg. We opt for Oregon and NW brews but occasionally throw something different out there. You can follow our Twitter feed for daily updates.

Beer flows all day and the basement bar opens at 4pm Monday thru Friday, and at noon on Saturday and Sunday. We have a warm, lively, fabulous atmosphere. Come check it out. It is the place to be.

Very friendly staff. Good selection of craft beers. Nice downtown location. Cool wall art in basement. The downstairs is small but it has a welcoming feel to it. Highly recommend to those looking for a hipster bar.

This was a favorite place to go until recently. The food had always been wonderful and fresh and the portions were perfect. Within the last 3 months something has changed.. The food quality and portions have gone down significantly. It's really disappointing
