Many sit-down restaurants in Canby have closed their doors since Governor Kate Brown's executive order on March 17 that no food or drink can be consumed on restaurant premises during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, several are still open and are now depending on takeout orders to survive.
As local resident Chris Bangs said, "The more people in town get takeout at these local restaurants, the more local people will still be getting paychecks."
So, we called around, and drove around, to see who's still operating. Note that most have adjusted their hours. A good rule of thumb is to make sure you get your dinner order in before 8 p.m.
Here's the list we came up with.
Open for Takeout:
Pappy's Greasy Spoon – till 1 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday
Biscuits Café – till 2:30 p.m.
Baker's Prairie Bakery – till 3 p.m.
Rice Time – till 6 p.m.
Wayward Sandwiches – till 7 p.m., free delivery on orders $25 or more
Pizza Schmizza (taking it day by day)
The Wild Hare Saloon – Family meal deal for $25
Backstop Bar & Grill
Aurora Colony Pub

If we forgot a restaurant, please let us know and we'd be happy to update the list.
On top of these, almost all fast-food and takeout restaurants are all still operating, including Papa Murphy's, Odd Moe's Pizza, Jimmy John's and more.
