pura vida cocina

Pura Vida is about living a peaceful, grateful, simple, uncluttered life with a deep appreciation for nature, family, and friends. The name of our business is reflected in the way that everyone is welcomed and treated at our establishment. It is reflected in the way our food and drinks are prepared and enjoyed. It is reflected in the art on our walls, and most of all, in the experiences that our guests have here. We want our guests to feel PURA VIDA here, like we do.


We are located near the cross of Cowls Street and Third Street in the historic downtown of McMinnville, Oregon.

As we strive to make our restaurant as welcoming as possible, we do not take reservations, so we encourage you to simply walk in.
