Humble Spirit and more great McMinnville restaurants

As is often the case in top-rated wine destinations, there are plenty of great places to eat, drink, and enjoy the finer pursuits of life. Oregon’s Willamette Valley is no exception to that. There’s an impressive list of fantastic restaurants in McMinnville, and one of the shining stars at the moment is Humble Spirit, adding an innovative take to farm-to-table dining on the famed Third Street in downtown McMinnville. 

The methodology at Humble Spirit is to connect diners with the beautiful produce, proteins, and local goods that are found in abundance in the Willamette Valley. They aim to support farmers using regenerative practices and small-batch craft. They also pull from their very own farm, so Chef Brett Uniss—who has worked for culinary geniuses such as Thomas Keller and Jose Andrés—has the freshest to showcase on the menu. 

The best McMinnville restaurants follow this lead, creating delicious food sourced nearby that pairs perfectly with the Willamette Valley wines we know and love. In fact, there are so many lovely restaurants to discover that McMinnville really deserves more than just a day’s worth of explorations. That starts when you book our McMinnville bed and breakfast, also a top-rate winery, for your overnight lodging. Start planning and book your room today!
